BLC 19 ~~ Excuses, Excuses, Challenge - Revisit SMART GOALS

Friday, June 22, 2012

This blog was originally posted at the beginning of the BLC19 round, we have been asked to revisit our inital goals and see how we are doing and have we stayed true to those goals..... (** - represents additions made)

This is a blog about my goals for the 12 week BLC-19

Began April 25th - weight was 177.6

Sunday ~~ Cardio

Monday ~~ ST (strength training) and Cardio

Tuesday ~~ LCW (Last Chance Workout) and Cardio

Wednesday ~~ Weigh-in and Rest Day

Thursday ~~ TNT (Tighten n Tone-usually ST) and Cardio

Friday ~~ Cardio and start of Weekend Challenges

Saturday ~~ ST (strength training) and Cardio

My goal is to lose 10 lbs during this round. I plan on doing that by limiting salty snack foods, exercising 6x a week (I signed up as a 12-week Streaker which means you exercise 6 out of 7 days for a minimum of 20 minutes per day for the entire 12 weeks), watching portion sizes, remembering to drink my water, and using the South Beach Diet guidelines to plan meals/snacks.

I know I can do this with the support, motivation, and encouragement of my Silver Spy teammates and my SparkFamily of Friends.

Ends - July 18th (I believe) - Weight -

UPDATES: June 22, 2012

**Midway June 20th - weight 172.6 (-5.0 lbs and -4 inches overall)

** I have been limiting salty snack foods, but some days I overdo eating them. This has been an ongoing struggle for me but I'm am doing much better than I have in the past. Portion sizes have varied, some days I do really well and other days not so good. I'm an emotional eater and at times they get the best of me.

** I would say that 90% of the time I stick to the South Beach diet way of eating with a little Clean Eating thrown in as well.

** I have continued my Spark streak of exercising 6 days a week for at least 20 minutes per day.

** I believe I am on track to reach my goal of losing 10 lbs this round and becoming healthier and more fit physically.
