BLC 25 break ... and beyond

Monday, July 21, 2014

Well, with round 25 of the BLC winding down it's time for a little re-evaluation. Between battling sinus issues (which seem to be never ending) and two family trips, I know I'll be ending at a higher weight than when the round ended. I have a feeling I won't have lost many, if any, inches either.

I decided not to do the final fitness test. After taking most of last week off from exercise due to traveling, I know my results won't be very accurate.

So now, the question becomes what next? Do I sign up for another round? I love having a challenge, but often the challenges don't work in my life. This journey is supposed to be about making healthy changes that will work for a lifetime.

I'll be thinking things over for the next few days, deciding what my best path is. In the meanwhile, it's back to the basics: plenty of water, at least one freggie with every meal and getting back into an exercise routine that works in my life.

    Hmm .... Interesting question. I'm on the road a lot these days, and I'm having trouble fitting the challenges in as well. I go back and forth. Being obese is affecting every other aspect of my life, so correcting it needs to be a top priority. So maybe I need to MAKE time for the challenges. On the other hand, I need to think long-term - beyond challenges. I'm curious to know what you decide. emoticon

    Hope you will be able to figure out what is best for you. And hoping your sinus issues settle down a little bit for you! Take care!

    Good luck finding your path, Sue! You hit all the right notes here, it really is about what works for you..the important thing is that you are still here, still working at it, and you will find your way! You can do it, we all can do it!! Good luck my friend!

    I can't answer this one for you, so I would just encourage you to do what is best for you. If the BLC isn't working for you, there are many other ways you can find motivation. I hope you have a good break and get some good rest in.
