Reflections - BLC 22

Sunday, August 25, 2013

The end of BLC 22 is upon us and it is time for me to look back and reflect. This challenge was a bit of a struggle for me. Started it off with almost 3 weeks of vacation and a injured Achilles that did not want to heal. My food was not the greatest, my attitude was bad and my movement left a lot to be desired. What this challenge did do however, was help me to get past all my negative feelings with the help of some really great team mates.

My goal for between the rounds is to continue in a more positive way on my journey. You can't always control what life gives you, but you can control how you meet each challenge and what you do to make each experience as positive as it can be.

In order to accomplish my goal, I have written on the calendar a plan for my exercise and I will continue to track all my food and be mindful of what is going into my mouth. I have been starting each day looking at the positive things in my life, accepting the challenges and working hard on keeping my focus.

    emoticon idea to book all your exercise time on the calendar.
    I read somewhere when I started my journey with spark how important it is to keep those appointments with ourselves just as we would keep appointments with dentists, doctors, etc. With exercise appointments with ourselves we'll just cancel when other appointments we'd make greater effort to keep or at least reschedule. That realization struck a chord with me and all my fitness is now on the calendar and the habit of making the appointments has gotten me into regular routine of fitness.

    A positive place is a great place to start each day. With your determination and plan you should have a successful break. Just go easy on yourself when you evaluate your success. It's so easy to come down too hard on ourselves, focus on the things we missed and forget to celebrate that we accomplished. I know from experience and am trying hard to change that.
