BLC26 Expectations

Friday, September 19, 2014

The more I get into this round (and it's only been a couple of days) the more I want to focus on developing better eating habits than caring about what the scale says. Yes I would love to get back under 150lbs but at this point in my life and almost 41 married with 2 little ones, I just want to be strong and healthy. I don't want to spend the rest of my life chasing a number on the scale. I want to be a healthy example to my daughter and be able to live a long active life with my kids and DH. I really feel that if I can tweak my eating habits and keep up my fitness level that the scale will take care of itself.

Eating habits I need to tweak are:

- No mindless snacking (portion out everything)

- Tracking every BLT

- Eating more protein at least 100g daily

- Consuming less carbs. I'd like to keep it at a 1:1 ration with the protein but that hasn't happened yet. So at this point, I'd like to keep it under 200g daily aiming for under 150g daily.

- Going sugar free

- Staying away from my intolerant foods and trying to work some back in and see how my body responds.

That's about it for now and I think it's even to work through during these 12 weeks. I hope at that by the end of this round that these will be consistent habits and I'm very happy with the results.

    i Totally! agree with not chasing a number; you put that very concisely.
    I'm trying to follow a similar path.
