goals for BLC round

Monday, January 20, 2014

Ok...well this is something I have actually been really thinking about over the weekend.

We were supposed to identify one thing that gets in our way of success and eliminate it. Well I am that one thing. It's me. Not the food not the sleep not the fitness. Its me and my brain! I know what to do and for the most part I do it. But I sure can talk myself out of stuff too. How did I do this weekend?? Not sure so will have to figure out how to score it. I ate well Friday and Sunday and going to today too. Saturday well not so great. I had a choice. We went out to eat. Do I order something from the low calorie menu? Wondering if it is going to be good or fill me up?? Or do I go for the bad not so great option. Well after contemplating for awhile guess which way I went? Yep...I did not pick the best option. But you know I didn't get an appetizer, I didn't eat any of Martin's pizza...both of which I would have previously! And not to give my self extra props but I did do 2 work outs that day. So I made a poor food choice and was not perfect for the day. If I am my own obstacle well I say I kind of failed.

Yesterday I took a rest day! Honestly I was so sore I couldn't do much. But I think everyone needs a rest day too. Can I do better? Yes I know I can. But over all I do pretty well. Is my progress really slow...yep sometimes it is. But I'll get there. This is a lifelong journey. It won't ever be over. So in 20 years will I remember this one weekend where I didn't maybe make the best choice? No I won't. But I will remember my efforts in my journey. My never giving up and I know in 20 years I'll still be on the journey because for me it will never be over.

Now I also have to make some goals for this round! I basically have only 1 main goal. That is to get to 135 this round. That is 12 weeks. 1/2 pound a week basically. Sounds reasonable and easy. Well for me not so much. But we will see.

How am I going to get there??
1. complete all challenges
2. continue working out doing crossfit, yoga, walking, weight lifting
3. eat reasonably and track my food
4. Stay within my goal calorie range 90% of the time
5. drink my water
6. NO more gluten or grains (yes this is where I messed up Saturday)

I can do this!

    All of us have that same problem with our brains. That's why it's sooo hard to lose weight. You just have to start over every day if needed.
