BLC25 - Goals - The Plan

Monday, May 05, 2014

After looking over previous blog entries I find myself hesitant to create a new "plan" for the current challenge. If I remember correctly I've been around 18 BLC challenges.

So what's different? I'm heavier, yep heavier than when I started this journey. I'm not as fit, I feel old and I continue to bomb time after time.

This evening while waiting in line at Chipotle there was another woman of color standing in front of me. Her legs were so swollen mine started to ache. I thought to myself this could be you if you don't finally get your weight under control.

I also had to purchase an outfit for a conference tomorrow and all I could see was fat. Gut, butt, jiggly arms, etc.. you get the visual.

Ok now that's I've dumped all the negative emotions I will get back to my plan.

Really basic, really simple.

I want to lose 15 pounds. Considering my current weight that's totally doable.

I want to get back to being able to walk 7 miles at one time. I know my hips will ache, my shins won't be happy but long distance walking has always kept my thighs under control.

Treat my body with respect. That means stop the madness with the sugar, eating out and random munching. I know what to do.

Now's the time to just do it!!

Go Warriors!!

    Add alcohol to the list of controls. I do not drink a lot, but it really plays havoc every time I do.

    Chelle - you know what to do, you just need to stay focused on realistic goals and chipping away at them every single day.

    The visual you painted was effective. With all the crap going on in my work life right now - I have been on an eating frenzy. We MUST stop the madness! Let's stop it right now!

    I go on stay-cation come Thursday - and I am going to totally regroup. Should I poke you every day or two to see how you are doing??

    I have had these "aha" moments and know exactly how you are feeling. You can do this, we can do this, so lets do it!! We just never give up and that is what is important.

    You can do this! It just takes one step at a time, one day at a time.

    Very doable. We are with you. Even on the days you've given up - we haven't given up on you.

    BTW - if you look at my past blog posts - you will not feel alone. Mine are so full of goals and dreams and plans and rants...for 7 years now. And I'm not giving up. I don't want you to, either.
