BLC 26 Goals
Sometimes life throws us a curve ball, and that's what I'm dealing with at the moment. I was exercising, eating well, maintaining, and then suddenly I had a health issue to deal with (which is still being investigated). It has led to my losing w... Read more
I am still in my maintenance range (top end). For this round, I am looking to get to the bottom of that range (135) or perhaps even a couple of pounds lower: cushion pounds for an upcoming trip. Just as importantly, I'd like to tighten and tone.... Read more
BLC22 was successful for me: seeing me reach my goal weight of 140. This round, I would like to maintain. 140 would be at the high end of my range, and 135 at the low end. I guess that 137/138 would be ideal.
In addition to maintaining my w... Read more
I felt the need to update my progress with BLC 22 so far. I am doing well - meeting my exercise and tracking goals and losing weight at the pace I hoped to (roughly a pound a week). At this rate, I will achieve my goal by the end of the challeng... Read more
BLC 22 Goals
As part of this challenge, I have set a more realistic goal weight for myself - both to reach and maintain (140 rather than 135). To achieve this weight by the end of the challenge, I will have to lose roughly one pound a week, which is realisti... Read more
My body has been letting me know for quite some time now that it is not happy with me. Well.... It mostly seems to be my digestive system, but other parts of my body have begun to join in. I have been getting lots of exercise, but have been over... Read more
I have signed up for BLC21. I'm part of the CAMO Crew this round. Wednesday is almost here. I can't wait for the first official weigh-in and for the fun to begin. I'm hoping to lose up to ten pounds.
In the meantime.... I'm back to trackin... Read more
This is my first day back to work after a nice, long vacation. I have a busy month ahead. In addition to my workload (which is crazy this time of year), I have added my two evening fitness classes. So.... If I want to keep tracking my food (and ... Read more
Wow! Tracking Really Works!
Of course... I knew it would, but I have been resisting it for so long.
My 2013 goal was to track for five days a week, and so far I am right on target, having tracked every day since (and including) January 2nd. I have managed to stay in r... Read more
Another day tracked.
Today I started to go through my two freezers and discard food that was frost bitten. I found some veggie burgers that my DH believes are three years old. Read more
A Quick Post (Late Friday - Not Saturday)
Another day tracked!
I made lots of yummy, healthy food today: a pear, spinach and ricotta smoothie that tasted like a milkshake for breakfast, a huge warm spinach salad with onions, mushrooms and goat cheese for lunch, and an Italian sausa... Read more
Another Day Tracked!
Yep. And still within my calorie range.
I got lots of fitness minutes in too: 96. Read more
Cutting down on waste (and waist).
Today was the first day in a long, long time that I have tracked my food AND stayed in range. I work out... Read more
Goals for 2013
Increase flexibility (hopefully decreasing aches and pains).
- I have just registered for SCORE: a class that works on core strength and flexibility. It begins next week (and lasts for six weeks). I have also registered for a Yamuna body r... Read more
My muscles are too tight - everywhere. This has led to (among other things) chronic neck, shoulder and back issues. I am also dealing with tendonitis in my shoulder rotator cuff. Anyway, this blog isn't about complaining; it's about progressing.... Read more
