Bring on BLC26! It's a Marathon not a sprint!

Keepin things fresh and exciting! I've signed on as a Co-Cappie for the Navy Ninjas for BLC#26! Looking forward to leading by example (read motivation to keep up the great work). I've already registered for two distances races this fall (see below under "other info" with others to come, created my own Bootcamp workout and "prepackage" all my lunch box goodies for the week on Sundays. So that in itself should produce some great results in a lot of areas! So here's to a great Fall!

Keepin things fresh and exciting! I've signed on as a Co-Cappie for the Navy Ninjas for BLC#26! Looking forward to leading by example (read motivation to keep up the great work).

So that in itself should produce some great results in a lot of areas! So here's to a great Fall!

My fitness goals
*I'm doing great with tennis twice a week.
*I am going on distance hikes/walks/runs once a week on the weekend or an evening after work to keep warmed up for the distance races I'm going to do this fall.
*As the temperature drops, when it is less than 80* and not raining, I will go for a walk at lunch time on work days.
*I will do some form of strength training for at least 5 minutes every morning (m-f) when I'm getting ready for work or do my bootcamp or take a short pre-dawn run. I'd love to reach my goal of being in the 140's (145) by the end of the year! (That would be a big achievement as my typical loss is only half a pound a week and I have 10 pounds to lose in 15 weeks.)

My Nutrition goals
*Keep my Tracked Nutrients within their ranges.
*Cut one day a week that I eat out. We usually eat out after tennis (twice a week). I will eat out only once a week after tennis.
*I will plan meals ahead of the day in question instead of deciding what to eat at meal time and enter in my tracker by lunch of the day in question so I know my target numbers ahead of time.
*I will work to eat more whole foods and less packaged foods. Love my frozen pizza's so they have to stay! lol
*I will make extra servings when I cook meals at home for quick and easy lunch choices.

Overall Goals:
*To track every day (fitness and nutrition)and post CICO in my Navy Ninja Nutritional Tracker.
*To maintain an overall Negative Differential of 1750.
Averaging to -250 each day to lose a half pound a week.

Previous Intro:
Looking forward to continued progress towards a healthier weight & healthier ME in 2014!

I've decided it's the year of the half marathon!
I trained the fall of 2013 for one in December. My goal was to finish in the time allowed of three hours thirty minutes. My finishing time was 3:22:58. At the end of the race there was a booth for the Biggest Loser RunWalk Half/10K/5K. I signed up for it and decided to check the calendar for more races near by. The smaller local charity types are more reasonably priced!
I signed up for one the end of January (completed in 3 hours 13 minutes) and the BL one the end of March (completed 2 hours 51 minutes). My goal was to better my time with each race (I DID IT!). I was going to use the Arc Trainer machine at my local Planet Fitness to help my training but instead....My training turned out to be power walks at lunch time most days of the work week and it seems to have helped! Although, I don't think of myself as a "runner", I enjoy jog/walking the races and use it as a motivator to workout harder and eat better. ....works most of the time! lol

I've started BLC#25 and will find it another successful round! BLC #24 I had lost 5.7 lbs and my goal was 6. That's the closest I've come to my goal in either BLC's or 5% challenges! I think I've got it figured out for now. If I maintain my pace I should be in goal territory by Christmas! Woo Hoo!

Here's to a great 2014 for everyone!

Thanks for the finish flag. I didn't do as well as I should have, but I did finish lower than I started.
Best of wishes on your race!
