BLC 17 Recap
Monday, November 28, 2011
This has been an interesting BLC. This is my second time around and this round was very different from my first time. For BLC 17, I became a Navy Ninja and I really felt at home with the team. I was off to a great start -- I lost 6 pounds the first week -- but that was because I was on vacation and had to weigh in at night. I then lost 3.5 pounds the second week and was off to a great start! I was almost half way to my 20 pound goal.
No negativity! (skipping all the negativity here, which is all being negative towards myself, not towards anyone else.)
Unfortunately, I somehow climbed onto a plateau. I have been basically the same weight since July. Well, that's gonna stop now. It's too late to make a drastic difference for this round of the BLC, but I am going to kick butt next round.
What have I learned from this round? I have learned that I really like the Ninjas. I have learned that I am competitive. I have learned that I need to focus on the food intake much more. I have learned that plateaus can creep up at any time and knock you off balance. I have learned that your body can just randomly gain weight overnight for no good reason, despite all the calorie counting and exercise. And I have learned that it won't be the end of me. There's always tomorrow.
I still have more to learn, but that has been a great beginning. I love the Ninjas! Yeayyyyyyyy Ninjas!!!!!
