BLC20 6 Week Update

Monday, October 22, 2012

Time sure flies when you are having fun! I cannot believe that week 6 is here already. It seems like it was just yesterday when we found out our teams. Wow.

I have to say, on the whole, I am happy with my progress. So far, 8lbs lost. emoticon Not too shabby. I'm drinking my water emoticon , getting enough sleep (crucial for me) emoticon , and I'm still planning (and sticking to) my meals. emoticon

The biggest downfall...or let's call it, 'Area of opportunity' is with my exercise. I like exercise, and I don't mind getting out there for a walk, wog, hike or whatever....But when I signed up for this challenge I was hoping to kick my workouts into high gear. There are a bunch of things I wanted to do - boot camp, spinning, kickboxing, etc...You get the idea. Unfortunately, dealing with messed up muscles in my back/leg...Has not let me exercise as much as I would like. I know. I know. I should be happy that I am able to get out at all...And I am....It's just a little disappointing that 6 weeks in, I am still dealing with this issue (although much improved).

So for the last 6 weeks, I'm going to stick to the plan I set out for myself at the beginning, but try not to beat myself up about the exercise. I will do what I can, and not get discouraged. As my team leader Andrea keeps telling me, go slow & careful, so that I don't make it worse. I will do my best!
