The best thing about this BLC round is that I have thoroughly enjoyed being in this supportive group. I need that because I am insecure about my computer skills and had a terrible time finding out what to do and how to do the tasks. This has been a very trying year for me in my personal life, and I would have been back to my original high weight were it not for the support of others. My husband is always supportive, but honestly, it takes more than one person. I did not lose weight, but I know I will when things settle down a bit. I sure hope this will happen in the coming months. My health is my first concern over all; when I get that in order I will be able to focus on losing pounds.
Big NSV- my demanding Pilates instructor praised me on my improvement! And then a class member told me the same thing!
My plan for the BLC break:
Make sure to keep my kitchen stocked with the tastiest, healthiest foods I can buy.
Maintain my new habits that I have achieved thanks to months of Sparking- I no longer drink tons of diet soda, and I have been limiting processed foods. I have experiemented with new foods I did not buy before, like Italian parsley, kale, couscous, and quinoa.
Practice lowering my daily caloric intake for my upcoming vacation! Somehow I think driving hours and hours in a car do not equate one hour+ of gym workouts. I will be hiking during my vacation, but that does not seem to burn anywhere near the calories of my cardio and strenth blast workouts. I will miss one of my beloved Pilates classes too. I am pledging to practice pilates moves in my lodge, but I have to prepare and practice or I am sure this will not get done because I tend to get very tired and sleepy after long drives.
Wishing you all success, and thank you again for the support you gave.
