BLC Training

BLC - Biggest Losers Challenge

That is the name of the new team I just joined (being desiring to be part of it for the past 3 years).

I am really loving every part of it and in two weeks time I will know the particular team I am going to be on.

I love the support, the challenge, the accountability, and most importantly the fun. It looks as if the challenge when it starts will be stern and fun at the same time. Such mixtures of pleasure and pain can be really exciting. I hope to stay strong through the 12 weeks.

And more than anything, lose body fat and get my numbers right for the first time in a long while.

Vital Signs

Monday, April 07, 2014

I did this today and here what I got using an online calculator. I really hope to improve on all of this, they are just as important the number on the scale.

Body fat - 36.1% (obese)

BMI - 29.9 (overweight)

Target heart rate - 109 - 146 beats/minute

BMR - 1520

Waist-to-Hip Ratio - 0.81 (just within healthy range).

It was not much of a bug to me, (at least I can share it).

Run Baby Run

Friday, April 04, 2014

Today was awesome for me. I got to the gym in very high spirit. I ran 1 mile in less 13 min, that is 1 min less than the last 1 mile run I did (kudos to my trainer at the gym, he was so encouraging and to motivate me, he started running with me). I feel so proud of myself right now and I know it can only be better.

Did resistance training and a few weights. It was a terrific day for me.

To make my day, the trainer told me there are many of his clients that are always encouraged and motivated by my body, fitness and zeal. Since I don't relate so well at the gym (I keep minding my business) I seem not to give so much chance for comments but today I felt so proud hearing that from my trainer.

Can we call that Non-Scale Victory? Yay!

Yoga is getting to me on a daily basis now. I am a Christian, so meditating while in my poses feel so good and relaxing. For example, I recite "The Lord's Prayer" whenever I am on a Mountain Pose, I hope I am not breaking the rules that way, lol.

What new thing have you been doing and enjoying sparkies?

    I'm glad you are doing so well, Temitope! Your trainer sounds great.
I too started to do yoga a few months ago and now I enjoy it very much. It fills my day with energy and calmness.

So far.

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Nothing Sparktacular is happening with me right now, I have added weight instead of losing, my measurements remain the same (my waist is still 34.5") and I feel exhausted of ideas right now.

One other thing I am trying to read up right now is "weight loss and PMS". One of my resolve right now is not weigh in during my period (few days before and after)and I think it will save me a lot of this headaches about the scale.

Right now I do not have any plan at hand, my office and church schedules keeps getting in the way these days and there is just a lot to take care of (I hope I will take care of myself too)

I am also eating healthy (portions are quite inconsistent though), and am active as I can be.

I hope to become a marathoner someday soon.

    I ran marathons and all the distances below the marathon. Good luck and enjoy it. There came a time when my feet and knees couldn't handle running anymore but I sure did enjoy running for all the way until I turned 50.

I avoided weighing before and during my period because weighing during those days was just setting myself up for disappointment. That's an unpredictable time of the month. Glad that time is over for me. emoticon

    Remain strong and focused. You will get back on track.

    You are absolutely correct about the weighing and setting those time limitations. Don't let natural processes goof you up. You can do this and it will work itself into a pattern or schedule for you - you'll see.

    Totally agree with you - do not weigh yourself during PMS. We are women after all and our bodies go through lots of changes during that time. Just be patient - the time will pass.

Week 4

Saturday, March 15, 2014

I ended the last week of my challenge yesterday and it was awesome. I was almost discouraged at the beginning of the week because I fell sick and a little tired. The scale also rose by almost 2lbs (PMS I think), but I know and am sure it is water weight.

I will be doing my final weigh in and measurements on Monday, we see what progress I have made so far. (I will keep you posted).

"When life throws you a lemon, make a lemonade out of it", that is what I am trying to do right now and I hope the lemonade comes out nice and beneficial to all that will join me.
