BLC 20 Mid-Way Challenge

Monday, October 22, 2012

So for the challenge this week, we're supposed to review our challenge goals that were made back in September. I went back to look through my goals, and I'm just underwhelmed at what I haven't done so far this challenge. emoticon

1. Walk or jog at least 6 days a week (trackable goal) When the weather starts getting bad, I'll have to join a gym to keep this up.
---> I haven't been doing this. I've lost my mojo on this...really need to get a gym membership. It's really starting to get cold and I lack motivation when it's cold outside to go walking.

2. Weight loss goal is 10-15 pounds for this round (again, trackable)

----> I'm about halfway (7 pounds, estimated), but I have lost about 16 pounds since I started on the waiting list for this challenge to start...guess I'm still doing okay here.

3. Walk 3 flights of stairs without getting winded ( not sure if this is trackable...but I'll be able to tell the difference)

----> I have been walking up and down stairs, but I still get winded. I'm going to chalk this up to a work in progress. =)

4. Eat 3-4 servings of freggies at least 5 days a week. (trackable)

----> Yeah, this isn't happening. I HAVE gotten better about what I put in my mouth, but I'm still having issues with vegetables. This is a deep-rooted issue for me, but I'm working through it. I'm still eating spinach salads, but they're getting a little boring at the moment. Anybody have any ideas?

Okay, so that's where I'm at. I'm seriously feeling sluggish with this competition right now. I don't know if it's because of my inner fat kid, or it's just that I'm starting to feel jealous of the weight that other people have dropped. Granted, I haven't given it my all, but I'm worried that if I do, I'll burn out for sure. I dunno.

    You are doing great on your weight loss. 7 pounds is great. I think that you might have too many goals for this challenge. Maybe pick one and go with it. emoticon emoticon
