BLC25-I'm a Hot Mocha Maniac!

Thursday, May 01, 2014

I started back on this weight loss journey in November working Bob Harper's Skinny Rules and dropped seventeen pounds like nothing--BAM! Then, wall. I've fluctuated back and forth between three and four pounds, but still not going any lower and I'd about given up. Gah!! Then, a Spark friend mentioned the newest Biggest Loser Challenge coming up and I thought just maybe that would help give me the push I needed to break through this plateau and start losing again...It was certainly worth a shot! So I signed up, became a Hot Mocha Maniac, and am totally stoked for the weekly challenges to help us reach our goals!

My goals: I would LOVE to lose 12lbs over the course of the challenge--more would be even better. I don't understand why two pounds a week isn't happening for me, but if I could hit that 24lb loss, I would be over the moon!! emoticon

A fitness goal is to train for and run a 10k. I'm being a big chicken baby right now, not committing to signing up for a race just yet--I still have that voice in my head saying I can't do it--but I have a program printed out that I'm working and as I conquer that voice and get closer to realizing my training goal, I will commit and sign up for that race! emoticon

Another goal for the challenge is to be a twelve week streaker! I KNOW I can do that!! Let's do it!! emoticon I want to tackle each challenge and give 100%, really take advantage of everything our team has to offer emoticon

A NSV--get back into those size 10 (or 8!!) jeans and feel fabulous this summer!! emoticon I'm ready!!

    emoticon Whooo Hooo! You CAN do this because you ARE Ready to break through that wall.

    I also tend to 'bungee 3-4 pounds after reaching a new lower number and sometimes (MOST) the time it takes finding a way to shake things up and the BLC sounds like it fits the bill!!!

    Good luck this round!

    You CAN do it and if you are looking for some new ideas/ inspiration the 'Skinny Rules' group has been updated and ready to ROCK this summer!!!

    Be blessed!

    You can do anything you put your mind to. If you ever start to think, "I may not be able to do this", stop right there and do something, no matter how small to reach your goal.

    Don't put off registering for that 10K, sign up now, that will keep you focused on your training plan.

    Last year I got an email for a 10K. I was still working on finishing 5Ks so I hesitated but then signed up for the 10K. It was the best thing I ever did. It kept me on track with my training. I walked a little here and there during the race but I was so proud of myself. I had tears in my eyes when I crossed the finish line at my first 10K.

    Keep moving forward!
