A Horrible Week But New Start To The BLC

Monday, January 21, 2013

I think I must of had the most horrible week last week. Instead of using all that frustration and going to the gym and working out I decided to forgo the gym and go to the bakery or Pizza Hut. While I did work out 3/7 days (which is really low for me) only one of those days I could say that I actually had a decent workout. It showed to because when I got on the scale on Sunday....BAM 2.5 lb weight gain. Are you kidding me! Well it is my own fault and no one else's. I have got to come to the realization that life happens. There are going to be good days, great days, and horrible days. So from here on out, I refuse to take out my frustration on me and eat. I was doing so well for the past 5 months and I am not going to go back to where I was. Hopefully this week will go great and I can get back to where I should be and get this train back on track.

I started a BLC with a group here on SP. I have been super pumped up about this since I heard of all the results people were getting. I'm here to do my part. My goal through the end of this is to come out 30 lbs lighter and more focused and determined to meet my overall goal. To do this I am committed to go to the gym or workout somewhere else 5/7 days for at least 1 hour. I have been doing great staying off the soda's, almost 6 months clean and sober from them (since Coke, Mountain Dew, and Dr. Pepper was like a drug to me) and to stay committed to my nutrition tracker. I thought that I was doing good by not keeping track of it on paper. I thought that I had all the numbers in my head and new my limits...well apparently not.

I want to make working out and living healthy and fun experiment and not a chore. I have a tendency to get bored really easy, maybe its my ADD, I don't know. I want to be an inspiration to my family and friends, even players. Being a offensive line coach, all I hear is how they like to eat,eat, eat. Most of these guys don't realize that they are on that thin red line and hopefully my triumphs will inspire them. At the same time I need to be the one to step up. Travel season is about to be hear. In a few weeks the team gets on the road travelling across the Southeast and everyone is going to want to eat out and pig out. I can't go back to where I use to be, and I refuse to go back.

So for week 1 of the BLC my goal is to lose 3 lbs this week and to get my but in gear and realize how close I am if I stay committed. I plan on maintaining a 1800 calorie diet, drink plenty of water, and do some sort of workout 5 days this week for at least 1 hour.

Wish me luck!

God Bless!

    Good luck! Though I don't really think you need "luck", you have motivation and that is better than luck.

    You said it right about taking our frustrations out on ourselves when we binge. We have to let go of seeing unhealthy food as a reward and see it for the conditioned self sabotage it is.

    I'd wish you good luck, but I think it's all about work and commitment - and I believe you can do it! Have a great week,

    Hey, Fellow Cobra (and fellow Southerner/SEC Football fan)! This sounds like a great plan for the first week of the BLC! I think the hardest thing about weight loss is staying motivated even when you slip up, so this is super inspirational to me to see how great your attitude is!

    Keep it up! We got this!

    Although you are technically the competition emoticon , I definitely wish you good luck!! Don't beat yourself up over a bad week! They happen. But the most important thing is that you are dedicated to getting back on track! Your plan sounds great, and with your attitude, you'll be at your goal in no time! And awesome job with the soda! I am a fellow former addict of the stuff myself.

    emoticon emoticon I bet you will be a big inspiration to your team!
