Thinking, thinking....What I am doing right for BLC32
Monday, October 10, 2016
Week 5 of BLC 32 and the question is....what am I doing right this BLC?
Hmmm...I have to think about this. I shouldn't have to think about it but I do. All the things I am doing wrong pop right into my head. But the things I am doing right? Still thinking. It shouldn't be that way though. I should be able to just rattle off about about good I have been tracking every BLT, how I faithfully wake up each morning, jump out of bed and dash down to the basement or off to the gym to work out on a machine or to one of the many DVDs I have.
But truth be told...I am still struggling with figuring out how to limit my carbs, stop the nighttime snacking and to track everything. And each morning when I let my dogs out to do their thing, I grab a cup of coffee and slink back into bed to watch the news and some Good Morning America. THEN I stumble out of bed, pull on some clothes, make myself presentable (never know who I might bump into) and take my dogs out for a walk. Each night I set my alarm to get up earlier to work out and it doesn't happen.
So I sit here thinking about what I am doing right. And...the biggest thing that I am doing right is NOT giving up!!! I know I have a lot of work to do but everyday I do get up and do something to better myself in the health department. One of my goals this BLC rounds was to increase my daily steps. A suggestion on the chat thread was to join StepBet which for a small fee you are in a pool and have to meet weekly step goals. Do that and you split the pot of money at the end of the six week challenge. Don't do it and kiss that money good bye. I thought hard about doing this. It wasn't the money. It was that sense of failure. What if I didn't meet the goal every week? But I wasn't giving up and I signed up to do it. And you know what?? I AM doing it!!!
I am in week 3 and each week my steps are increasing! I find myself marching in place as I fill up my water bottle, or at 11pm because I am 300 steps away from meeting my goal and I am going to hit that goal.
So what am I doing right? Although I am not tracking my food everyday, I do track at least 3-5 days. I may not push myself as I should to work out as I should, I have increased my steps every week. I'm a work in progress and I am not giving up!!!
