BLC23 Week 7 PAWSE - November 6, 2013

Thursday, November 07, 2013

Here we are, starting the 2nd half of the challenge and coming up to the 2 Holidays that are the hardest to manage, food-wise. I need to have a plan in place to prevent un-doing the last 6 weeks.

How did I do with my goals for last week?
1. I will sit down and take some time to put my November goals in writing, with a plan to reach them. DONE! I don't have a blog on SP, but I do have them in my journal

2. I will plan out my meals for the next 10 days (which will get me through to the week before I am off on vacation). DONE! I planned, I shopped and I am sticking with it, so far.

3. I will use my new yoga DVD 3 times this week. Uh oh...I only got in 2 days. I will try harder this week.

4. I will do my best to have a 2 pound weight loss this week. DONE!! Right on the mark.

My Goals for this week will take a little more focus. I am on vacation next week and have plans to be out of town for at least 2 days. My plan for the coming week is to:

1. Take my laptop with me for the 2 days we are out of town and pack a couple of DVDs that I can use with my bands and hand weights.

2. Clean out my kitchen cabinets.

3. Get up and start my day with a trip to the gym or a walk/jog on the trail....every day!

4. Cook at home all the days I am there. Make healthy choices on the days I am gone.

5. I would love to see a 1 pound loss this week. I'm not going to shoot for more than that because being out of routine makes me a little nervous.

Here's hoping week 7 goes as planned.

BLC23 Week 6 PAWSE - October 30, 2013

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

I cannot believe we are already at the halfway point of, time flies!

I didn't get a PAWSE posted last week. When I stepped on the scale this morning it was exactly where it was last week. This is the first week I haven't had at least a small loss. Directly related to not posting a plan? Maybe not planning my meals? Or perhaps the 2 days in a row of very high sodium? Whatever it was, I guess I am just thankful for the maintain; it could have been a gain.

My goals this week:

1. I will sit down and take some time to put my November goals in writing, with a plan to reach them.
2. I will plan out my meals for the next 10 days (which will get me through to the week before I am off on vacation).
3. I will use my new yoga DVD 3 times this week.
4. I will do my best to have a 2 pound weight loss this week.

I'm going to make this week a great one!

Week 4 BLC 23 PAWSE for October 16, 2013

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Last week my goals were to do ST 3x and yoga 2x. I did yoga poses all 4 days over the weekend, but didn't complete an entire yoga dvd at all. So, I would have to say I partially made this goal. As for ST, I did get 3 days...thanks to the weekend challenge and Monday step ups.

My weight goal was 1.5 pounds....I actually lost 1.8, so very happy with that.

My goals for this week are:
1. Continue with daily walk and/or runs. The weather is cooling and the runs have been really good this week. I would like to continue this trend.

2. I will make at least 2 new healthy recipes this week. I am using my slow cooker a lot, and having fun experimenting with some new recipes.

3. My weight goal this week is 1.5 pounds. Maybe I will be pleasantly surprised again this week...fingers crossed.

Week 3:BLC 23 PAWSE for October 9, 2013

Thursday, October 10, 2013

I completely skipped week 2 PAWSE, so I have no goals to reflect on. I did, however, make all of my goals from week1.

I have all of my dinner meals planned out for the next week. Grocery shopping is finished and I am on track to have a week of healthy meals. Breakfast and lunch are easy...dinner is the one that usually trips me up.

I have consistently exercised and have plans to continue. The weather is beautiful and I am enjoying being out on the trail in the afternoons. I have also logged all of my food and exercise, every day.

I was a little concerned how I would do over the weekend since I was going out of town, eating out or eating at someone else's house for 3 days. I ended up losing 1.6 pounds and having a calorie deficit, so I did pretty good.

My goal for this week is to do ST 3 times and do yoga 2 times. My hips and knees have been very achy, so I am hoping the yoga will help ease some of the achiness.

My scale goal for this week is to lose 1.5 pounds. I see my doctor this afternoon for an increase in my thyroid medication, so hopefully, the next 1.5 pounds will come off a little easier than the previous ones.


September 25, 2013: BLC23 Wednesday Pawse

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Today is day 1 of week 1 of BLC23! Part of the BLC challenge is do PAWSE each week.
P - Plan/Prepare for the coming week
A - Act with consistency and determination by making healthy choices and tracking
W - Write a blog reflecting the past week
S - Set a goal, both non scale and scale related for the coming week
E - Execute movement

I have planned out my meals for the coming week. I've been to the grocery store and stocked up on the 'good stuff'. I have moved the package of double stuffed Halloween oreos to the 2nd drawer down, which I don't get in to...hopefully!

I have logged every single bite for today and will do so going forward.

Movement: I think I have this under control. I've gone for a walk or a run every day this week. I will start adding in some ST moves, starting tomorrow when I flip my TNT cards!

Since it's day 1 of week 1 the 'reflecting' part is before the challenge started and even though I didn't make the best food choices, I did consistently stay with the exercise.

My goals: 1.5 pounds on the scale and 3 days of ST exercises in addition to my cardio.
