So, I've joined the BLC again. Here, have some goals.

Monday, June 10, 2013

I've got a far longer blog percolating regarding my impetus to start working on being healthy again, and news of various sorts...but THIS blog is due for points within the next 20 minutes. So you'll have to wait for the rest. :)


For this round (BLC22) my goal is to get back in ONEderland again. Since I started back to sparking a few weeks ago, I've gone from 216 to 209, which makes me supremely happy. My basic goal is to lose 10 lbs in the next 12 weeks - which should be totally doable.

How am I going to get there?

Tracking like crazy and making good food choices - and I was doing REALLY well on that too, until this weekend took a detour to Hoffbrau House (I had a date and he picked the restaurant...I really did want to try and find something healthy, honest, and actually went to their website before heading out to his place in hopes of finding a nutrition counter, and after glancing down the menu for about a minute realized I was in serious trouble, and I'd better just take it as a "planned cheat" day and make up for it later, 'cause there was nothing that didn't involve crazy rich sauces, and fried stuff...and OMG it was so good). It's been tough to get back to it since, and I've had a couple of slip ups at the vending machine at work, but I'm working on it.

Hitting the gym at school every Monday, Wednesday and Friday (since I'm done with class at 9:50 AM, and the gym opens at 10:00 AM - I seriously have no excuse). Last week was the first time in MONTHS that I actually hit my 90 fitness minutes per week goal, and I'm well on my way for this week too. So on THAT score, I'm doing great!

Doing the various challenges on my team - I'm a "Midnight Mustang" this round, and it seems to be a GREAT bunch of people (with a few familiar faces from my former wolf den), and they have a good schedule set up for various things. Unfortunately it's going to be hard to get many "Last Chance Workout" minutes on Tuesdays since my later class is on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and there's not a lot of time between school and work on those days. But I can at LEAST do the 100 Pushups Challenge I've been talking about doing for months - that'll be something. I can do our TNT (tighten and tone - basically strength training focused) on Wednesdays, and then the weekend challenges (which this blog is part of this week). Hopefully the need to rack up points for my team will help keep me moving. are a couple of before pictures, so I've got them for posterity (took these earlier in the week):

Oh, and for a recent more *flattering* pic, here is one that my date (aka Robert Downey Junior Junior - seriously, dude is a dead ringer) took of me at the evil (OMG it was SO GOOD) Hoffbrau House:

What, you don't believe me? Here ya go - the picture I took at Hoffbrau House of Robert Downey Junior Junior (points if you get what comedy album that's a reference to):

And the two of us together on the observation deck at the top of the Carew Tower:

Okay, more profundity later - right now I've got a date with my mate, the DVR, and The Voice.
