End of BLC24

Friday, April 11, 2014

Well, this round of the BLC is over. I loved all of the support I got from my teammates! emoticon I didn't do as well as I had hoped for, but still lost about 7 lbs. emoticon I really struggled to get back on track after Christmas. I think it took until March before the scale started moving again. But I am doing very well now. The weather is getting warmer and it just makes a huge difference for me. emoticon I have been walking either on the treadmill or outside at least 3 days a week, sometimes more. emoticon I need to beef up my strength training more though. My shoulder is still bothering me so I have been avoiding certain arm exercises. But I can still do legs, core and some arms. I need to stop making excuses and just do it. emoticon I have decided to take a break and not do the next BLC round. We have a lot of traveling coming up in June. I am excited about our trip to FL. emoticon I'm not going to lose as much before the trip as I was hoping to. But I still want to lose another 10 lbs before June 1st. The low carb diet is going pretty well. I still crave sweets something fierce! emoticon And sometimes end up giving in. But sometimes, I don't. It's a step in the right direction. If I could cut back on the sweets a little more, I bet I would start seeing some real results. I'm going to work on that. And drinking all my water, of course! emoticon

Now, to get my taxes done! emoticon

    The lower you go on carbs overall, the lower your cravings overall. I'm finding that just the lactose in half and half will keep me having low level "chocolate thoughts", lol. It doesn't take much to make the Carb Monster rear its ugly head!
