Reflection on last 10 weeks!!

Friday, November 09, 2012

While reading over my blog on beginning of fall season, I am making my checklist of what I did or not do for this.

5 things that have held me back in the past

1. Lack of interest: I always start off strong and then slowly drop off.

*I found myself in a bit of a slide on week 7. Picked it up slightly in week 9 and going to finish strong for last week.*

2. Lack of accountablity/excuses: somehow the saying *today is another day* fits too often.

* Did alot better this challenge,,,being in a couple more competative sites has helped me out for this.*

3. Late nite snacking. This is my worst 1!!!

* While definately not perfect because of inner team challenges I limited *grazing* to once a week 2 at the most!! When football is on, everyone enjoys munching as much as I do. Is a good thing CFL is almost done that leaves thursday, sunday and monday nite lol.*

4. Overeating when I eat out or getting takeout instead of cooking supper.

* This was the easiest 1 to complete*
5. Lack of motivation: Especially on weekends. After working all week is so easy to take the weekend off instead of sticking with program.

* Having the *buddy system* this challenge was the best part!! Dee was such an inspiration, always came to rescue for motivation and support.


While I never completed my 1000 minutes for a week,,,, I did get 912. who knew that it would be so hard!! Looking back,,,, I cannot remember enjoying the BLC as much as this 1. emoticon

    I think it's important to look at what have been challenges so that we can reflect on them and hope that you are able to find the courage and support to deal with them head on!!

    Great job! I am so impressed with your 912 cardio minutes in a week, WOW. It looks like you have done a great job with your goals this challenge. Snacking doesn't have to be bad. As long as it is counted in and planned (even if the snacks aren't healthy), then I say go for it! I equate late night snacking with out of control, unplanned sitting and eating bad food for no reason. It is a particular downfall of mine, but we will overcome!

    You go girl!!

    Great plan and sounds like you accomplished alot and now you will know what parts to really work on..Snacking in the winter (football season) is my downfall also...Keep up the good work.
