Summer challenge goals
It's about that time again! Time to set my goals for the Summer Strong BL Challenge!
I've got 4 main goals this time around. Well, there's a lot I'd LIKE to accomplish, but baby steps....lol
1. Do 3 cardio workouts a week (I'm not su... Read more
One step closer with my foot
I leave in about a half hour to go the my orthopedist appointment. He won't let me delay any longer. Today will be the cortisone shot. ... Read more
Ready for a challenge?
Are you struggling to reach your goals? Are you on track but could use some extra motivation? Do you do your best when you're part of a team?
The summer round of the BLC starts in June and we're looking for more willing participants! The... Read more
Down, down, down goes the ticker goal!
Today was weigh-in for my 5% challenge team, and today another goal went down. That makes 20% of my new high weight of just under 275 when I restarted in November. I was expecting MAYBE 220 on the scales this morning and was pleasantly surpris... Read more
Good elliptical session
Yesterday was the cookout and I overloaded on carbs, and an AMAZING potato salad that had bacon and apples in it! lol
Today was a busy day off. I got laundry done, went grocery shopping to restock my fruits and veggies for my shakes, made ... Read more
I'm working today, just put on my boot to try to ease up the heel soreness a bit. Sometime this evening, I'll be heading to Sherri's for a cookout with her family.
Tonight I want to try the elliptical again for a bit. I made it 15 minutes... Read more
Need to find a little focus
*WARNING* I'm in a foul mood, so if you're sick of hearing people complain on their blogs, skip mine.
I'm in a fog-brain, muddled, blah sort of state right now. Things aren't progressing how I'd like them to and I'm beyond frustrated with... Read more
Ortho appointment today
So my appointment with the orthopedists went pretty well today. Since I'm showing improvement, I get to continue PT for another 4-6 weeks! I'm happy about that (not so happy about $50 a week to PAY for it though) because I feel like we're maki... Read more
Slow and steady
My weight stalls out from time to time, or bounces up and down, up and down. But slowly it's going down! I hit my 18% mark with today's weigh-in and I got to change my ticker to my 20% goal. Next goal, 220. Hopefully the ups and downs will c... Read more
So because of this new Fitbit line (250+ steps each hour), I've overdone it lol. Of course I can't JUST do 250 steps an hr, so I just keep going. And Saturday, since I was at 23000+ steps by the end of my 14 hr segment, I just kept going to ge... Read more
Another week of PT appointments down. He's added a couple more exercises, but still not letting me do any exercises other than seated. And then, as a fun little twisted extra, makes me do balance exercises...and makes me laugh while I'm trying... Read more
New regime for my foot
So at therapy today, John (my PT guy) told me, in not so many words lol, that I'm pushing it too far. He'd given me a stronger resistance band on Tuesday, but now we wants me to only use it on my left foot to improve my flexibility (broke my an... Read more
What a difference 5 years makes
5 years ago today, I started my journey toward a healthier, happier me. I've had some very good successes and some pretty bad failures along the way. But one thing stayed constant. Regardless of how far I've strayed from time to time, I've al... Read more
Today starts the 5% challenge. 8 weeks to drop 5% of my body weight. I know I can do this because I did it last challenge! 11.4 lbs from now, there will be 5% less of me. Aww poor fat, I'm sorry but there's no way I'll miss you! See ya suck... Read more
So I was filling out my deficits last night in my journal and started looking back through the past entries. Yesterday was the end of week 10 of me recording all my daily numbers and tracking my deficits. And as of yesterday, I was down 22.4 l... Read more
