New Self vs Old Self ~ BLC Challenge

Sunday, September 05, 2010

I joined a challenge where I need to do the following: Blog, List my goals, and Correct an unhealthy habit.

B is for blogging:

I am having a hard time right now with being consistant in this journey. I have the drive, but I am lacking the motivation for weight loss. I don't really understand as I was able to set a goal for myself to get nothing lower then an A in my Health Promotions class this summer and I met it. It confuses me as to why I can do that and not stay focused to lose the weight. Then again, maybe it's easier for me to accomplish my goal for class because I can see what is going to happen after I reach that goal. I need to start thinking myself thin and visualizing how I will look once I get to my goal. I need to start to speak positive of myself and to know that I can and will do this even though it seems that it will take longer then I think it should. I am going to work more on my mental and then I know that everything else will fall into place. The next 12 weeks will not only be a weight loss challenge for me, but it will be a mental challenge for myself.

L is for List your goals:

My goals for the BLC14
1. Drink at least 8 cups of water a day
2. Plan my meals monday - saturday of each week
3. Follow Chalean Extreme for the next month and then start on Turbo Fire the next two months
4. Get at least 7 hours of sleep each night
5. Do at least 200 hours of cardio each week

C is for Correct an unhealthy habit:

The unhealthy habit I have that I need to correct is my eating. I need to plan my food for the day in advance so that I won't find myself eating whatever I can get my hands on. When I plan my food and enter it into the tracker, it helps me to see how much I am eating and it gives me an idea of whether or not I can have something that I haven't entered.

I'm a work in progress and I need to learn that this is not going to be an easy journey ahead, but once I reach my goal I will know that it was well worth it.

    You struggles sound so much like mine for SO LONG! Getting the MENTAL motivation and discipline to stay on track is the hardest first hurdle to tackle. Once you get there, though, the rest definitely gets easier! 200 HOURS of cardio a week is a BIG goal! LOL!! :) But it's SO AWESOME to plan your food in advance-- I struggle with that and want to get better. If you are in charge of buying groceries for yourself, make sure you clean out any temptation foods at home, so they WON'T be temptation. That way, even if you slack on planning your meals you only have HEALTHY options to choose from, rather than mac n' cheese or frozen pizza to fill the void. Keep up the goals and the blogging, and YOU WILL GET THERE!! :) emoticon emoticon

    That sounds like it should be mine too. I have all of that problem myself. I know you can do it.

    I like that you called yourself a "work in progress" I hope you dont mind if I use that. It sounds like you know what you want and you know how to do it. Just dont be so hard on yourself. Good luck.

    That sounds great. I think mental is as important as anything else.
