BLC 22 Goals - Revisited at Week 4

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

At the beginning of BLC 22, we were asked to set goals for the 12 weeks and to blog about it. Here are the goals that I set at the beginning and where I think I am at week 4:

Goals for BLC 22

1. Lose 24 pounds in 12 weeks which is realistic because some weeks I may have great weeks and others I may stall out.
Update: I am not on plan here. My body has other plans for me. I've been on a plateau for at least 2 weeks (really almost 3 weeks). I will get there eventually.

2. Plan my meals more often. Sometimes we go off the seat of our pants. I want to put a little more time and thought into the meals.
Update: I have been a lot better at this!

3. Add more strength training into my cardio filled schedule.
Update: I am definitely right on plan here. I've been doing either pilates or swimming (strength training focused).

4. Add more running sessions back into my workout schedule.
Update: I am slowly getting there. I still need to add a couple of more running sessions in a week, but I am working up to that (since it is hot out).

5. Get a better grasp on my emotional eating.
Update: I DEFINITELY have gotten a better grasp on this. I have hardly had any moments where I ate over my emotions over the past 4 weeks.

6. Participate in my Shamrock team and lean on them for support when I need it (first step is admitting I need their support).
Update: I am definitely doing better this round in participation. I feel so much closer to my team than I have in previous rounds.

    It's only a matter of time before the weight starts coming off again. I KNOW you can do this!

    Sounds like you are doing well. You have improved on most of your goals. That is great. You will bust through the plateau and reach goals. Keep up the good work.
