BLC22 - the first 7 weeks
What I've done well:
2 Strength Training Workouts per week. I've been doing this consistently for the past 7 weeks. I have increased to 15 reps of each exercise, 2 or sometimes 3 sets, and have also increased the difficulty by adding more we... Read more
GOAL #3 for BLC22
TRACK my food every day. My intention is to stay within my calorie range every day, but my goal is to track it in the nutrition tracker every day - even when I have to estimate; even when I know I'm going over on my calories or if I'm eating of... Read more
GOAL #2 for BLC22
Attain Goal Weight of 130 (or less).
I have a target weight range of 125-130, which should put my body fat % below 20%.

You are what you eat
Saturday is "errand day" with my Dad. He really didn't need me this week; he had run all his errands with his girlfriend Betty, so he had just about everything he needed. But I wanted to spend some time with him, so I invited him to go with me... Read more
First bicycle commute of the season?
I was planning on cycling to work today. It's warm enough. I'm organized enough (lunch & snacks are packed, bike tires have air, and I'm already dressed in my bike clothes). But it rained overnight, and the ground is pretty wet. There will b... Read more
Finding my formula
Not every weight loss tip will work for everyone. We all have to find our own formula for weight loss.
I am still finding my personal formula. Right now I am following a mostly vegetarian diet, cutting way back on breads and grains, and e... Read more
Its not for everyone
This week our LTGL challenge was Mindful Eating. This is not a habit that I normally practice, and after a week of failed attempts I would have to say this one is not for me. I would hope that we all acknowledge that every strategy doesn't wor... Read more
Its a stretch
I'm stretching again, thanks to the week #3 LTGL for the 5% Winter into Spring Challenge. I used to stretch daily, and I was quite flexible. But when I got pressed for time, stretching was the first thing to be eliminated. Now I see how stiff... Read more
Eat to Live
Anyone else read this? I haven't jumped on board with the whole program, but I'm definitely incorporating some of the concepts into my diet. I gave up the snacks. It was surprisingly easy. My meals are a little bit larger, and when I'm done,... Read more
7) Anything else you would like to share with your team...
If you have been following my blogs this week, it has been all about trying to get enough sleep. I have no trouble falling asleep. My problem is staying asleep. I wake up to go to the bathroom, and then often have a terrible time falling back... Read more

Thank you everyone who has offered some advice on my sleep issues.... Read more
5) What can you improve upon?
Sigh... in the wee hours of the night, after being awake for over an hour, I got up. I know I said I would stay in bed for the whole 7 hours, but I just couldn't. My mind was solving a problem from at work yesterday, and I couldn't shut it off... Read more
4) How are you doing day by day?
Or in my case, night by night. Working on developing the habit of getting enough sleep.
In response to my previous blog, one of my LIFER friends wondered how much actual sleep I am getting. Not very much. Last night I went to bed at my s... Read more
3) What are you doing to encourage yourself and keep on track?
Working on developing the habit of getting enough sleep.
For the past 2 nights I have scheduled enough sleep time. That's the first step - schedule it. Then at least I am in bed, even if not sleeping.
I am reminding myself of the hea... Read more
