That’s not a bad thing, but now I need to break the plateau! I have veggies and proteins in the house that are fast to fix, so if time constraints come up I’ll be set! <BR> <BR> I had great success with BLC24 – my good cholesterol was up 10 points and my diabetes is controlled by diet and exercise without the need for meds. My overall goal is to increase my healthy habits as I would like to retire in 6 ye... Wed, 30 Apr 2014 13:02:41 EST BLC 25 Begins! ABC's for the Tigers http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5679406 <em>247</em> <em>241</em> <BR> <BR> A is for ABOVE and BEYOND - Does competition give you an extra push? Competition against others as a team makes me excited, but person competition doesn’t really give me a drive unless it’s against myself and bad habits. <BR> <BR> B is for BLC rounds: I’m an oldie! This is my second round and I’ve been a Tiger both times. <BR> <BR> C is for CHILDREN: You have? I have one son. <BR> <BR> D is for DOWNFALL: .what's you're biggest tem... Thu, 24 Apr 2014 11:09:54 EST Pawse and ROAR http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5651766 We’re getting to the end of BCL24 and looking at the goals I set early on, everything looks on track. If I can get to 220 (that’s just 1 pound a week), I’ll be so happy. <BR> <BR> So for this week, I need to get more creative with bringing in food that I can fix quickly, that tastes good and that meet the nutritional and veggie goals. It’s time to start making protein shakes in the morning again for breakfast. <BR> <BR> I’m not really worried about exercise ---it’s the food that I’... Wed, 19 Mar 2014 17:13:02 EST PAWSING for a Serious Discussion http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5647417 Lately, we've had discussion on the Tiger Team about Challenging ourselves to be committed to our own wellness. It set me to thinking that I haven't really reached my greatest challenge with BCL yet, even with work stress or illness. <BR> <BR> I am a survivor of child sexual abuse. <BR> <BR> I've had plenty of therapy over the years to deal with the issues, but the one thing I've never been able to change is losing weight. Being larger has always been a defense mechanism and there seem... Fri, 14 Mar 2014 01:54:03 EST Jungle PAWSE http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5642167 Plan/Prepare: <BR> <BR> This week I’ll be stocking up on easy things to have a work. I barely averted a huge binge when I went most of the day without eating. On top of that, I will be having an all veggie day on the weekend – those are great for my diabetes as well as just good in general. I also have some information on meditation that will be awesome to start. It’ll be a good week. <BR> <BR> Act: <BR> <BR> I’m working my Tush to get those glutes! And each time I go to the bathro... Fri, 7 Mar 2014 12:18:24 EST PAWSING to get SMART! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5635476 Plan/Prepare: <BR> <BR> This week I do have food, etc., in place and will have my TIC TAC TOE Challenge sheet posted on the Fridge. I need more veggies, but that’s coming via a friend. This week, though, I want to get back on track with my SMART goals. When I reviewed them, I saw they were still relevant, but that I hadn’t focused on them as I should. So now its time to take it up a notch! <BR> <BR> Act: <BR> <BR> Get to work on all my Challenges and SMART Goals <BR> <BR> Write: <BR... Thu, 27 Feb 2014 18:00:59 EST Sixth Week PAWSE http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5628532 PAWSE! <BR> <BR> Plan/Prepare: <BR> <BR> Weight loss has slowed down a bit, but I also had dinner very late last night, which could have impacted the numbers. This week I have more fresh veggies in and I’ll be tasking myself for our challenge. Although most of the challenge are things we do anyway, posting and doing a few of the others will take some planning, so I’ll set up tasks. Again, my personal challenge will be time. <BR> <BR> Act: <BR> <BR> I’ll get my tasks set up in Outloo...
