BLC 20 - 12 Week Goals

Friday, September 14, 2012

First off, I know I am BLC this, and BLC that. But this one if for points and I gotta do it and represent the Sassy emoticon Sheriff's. emoticon

I'm going to cross enemy lines to give a thank you and a shout out to my girl Susan from the Mighty Mocha Hunters. Her blog of goals blew me away. She taught me that goals need to be specific and something I can measure to show that I did or did not measure up. I can't simply say I'm going to eat LESS or exercise more, I need numbers, so thanks Susan for showing me how it's done! emoticon

Goals for 12 week BLC 20:
*Lose 18 pounds. That is fine and good, but how am I going to get there?

*By eating no more than 1550 calories each day. If weight loss stalls like it has in the past, I may try calorie cycling, but I am going to hope that it doesn't come to that. I have been in range eating 1650ish, and that has gradually been slipping to 1700. That is not okay. 1550, end of story.

*The Sheriff's roll with 360 fitness minutes a week. That threw me for a loop for a second, but it can VERY easily be done. So my goal is 360 minutes per week, no excuses.

Ideal breakdown of exercise minutes:
Sat, Sun, Mon = workdays. 45 minutes walking = 2 miles.
Mon,Wed,Fri = TNT - 20 minutes.
Tue = 30 minutes of cardio.
Wed, Th, Fri = 45 minutes cardio.

*Water! Water! Water! emoticon emoticon
This was a habit, a great habit that was like second nature to me for the last 4 months at least. I don't know what is up all of a sudden, but it's not happening as easily. So you know what that means, time to TRACK/MEASURE the water again. Yep, a little annoying but gotta do what I gotta do.

Over these 12 weeks, I want to, scratch that, I WILL push myself to the limits, for myself and for my team. I WILL get back to doing the things that got me to where I am, but with an extra KICK to it. This challenge is just what I needed, and I am happy to be a part of it. This challenge may very well be the tool that gets me SUPER close to Onederland, and that is something I am so excited about!

    Awesome game plan! Make sure you make at least one day out of the week as a rest day. If your body doesn't get a rest it doesn't get a chance to repair and get stronger. I always say that ST training is very important for weight lose. Building more muscle means burning more fat which will get you faster results you can feel and see! Plus you will start to burn more calories throughout your day from all that new muscle. Got to love it! emoticon

    I'm not doing this challenge, but I'm rooting for ya'll that are! Destination, determination, deliberation...you know where you're going with it, you're determined to get there, and you deliberately set yourselves on course. Sweet! Can't wait to hear the reports as the challenge moves forward!

    Well Well Well, gettin' all emoticon sheriff like and all! You go girl! I love the goals. I am glad you made them specific. I think you will find that making them specific will help you work harder toward them because it is a more specific destination. It would be like planning a vacation to Florida, knowing that you want to get to Disney but not planning any further than getting to Florida. Now that the plans have been made, time for the attack! We are on an all out hunt! emoticon

    I detected with my keen listening( umm reading) skills of a Mocha Hunter, that you had a bit of 'tude in your blog! I like that! Let's put the smack down on this challenge! NO EXCUSES just results! We got this!

    emoticon here's to our success!
