BLC26 expectations

Monday, September 22, 2014

Wow, didn't realize I haven't blogged for so long!! There's a Christmas tree on my last one!

I have pretty high expectations for this round of BLC. I sat out a couple of rounds. First because I was in so much pain with my hip and could barely walk, much less do all the exercise needed for BLC. Then because my mother and my MIL were very ill and both passed away within 10 days of each other. The hip is better and I'm ready to go! I did a lot of emotional eating. The moms illness was creating much more stress than I would admit to or even realize was happening. It was a couple of months after they passed before I realized that anxiety was gone, replaced by sadness but easier to deal with. I'm working on it.

My goals/expectations for BLC26:

I am going to lose 25 lbs. I know that seems like a lot but I very close to my highest weight and I think I can do it.

I am going to get back into the habit of exercising most days.

I am going to get stronger!!

    You've certainly been through a lot of emotional periods! I'm glad that you're back on our team - you've been missed. The sadness will linger but it's time to focus on yourself. We're here for you!
