Summer Reflections for BLC

Sunday, June 26, 2011

I'm so glad I happened on the BLC sign ups while browsing one day. I chose a team that seemed to fit for my first choice and was assigned that team. This challenge has been the perfect incentive for me. I lost very consistantly the first few weeks and then stalled out. Looking at the first 4 weeks I averaged around 250 minutes of fitness for per week. The last few weeks the average dropped to 200 or less. Obviously I need to up my fitness minutes, which I have done this week. I had a couple of family events that I struggled through during the last few weeks. My eating has remained really consistant during the week, but I have a harder time handling the special events on the weekends. Tells me I need to stick to the plans I make regarding weekend events. I am on track for a great week this week, hope the scale thinks so.

My plan for the summer break is pretty simple. Keep doing what I'm doing. There are about 9 weeks between challenges and I plan to lose about 15 pounds. That will put me 20 from goal, a reasonable goal for next challenge. I will need to up my fitness to 250-300 minutes per week and maintain a plan for the weekends. My team is going to continue having small challenges and that will help too.

    Way to go on some solid goals for the summer. Lovely that your team will have goals for the break. I need to ask whether or not ours will. Hmmmm....good question! Nine weeks is a period of time that can do big things in either direction. I love your attitude! Your background is beautiful as well!
