BLC- 20

Friday, September 14, 2012


O-M-GOODNESS!!!!!!!! I absolutely cannot believe I am posting this picture! The things I will do to earn points for my team... This is one of the worst pictures I've ever taken. No makeup, workout hair, bad lighting, bad angle - YUCK! And what the heck has happened to my legs?!?!?! Seriously, they used to be the only body part I didn't mind too much, the belly has always been an issue, but the legs were pretty solid. I know I'm getting older, but geez!!!!
Oh yeah, this was supposed to be about a PLAN for improvement in the next 12 weeks. Planning is another thing I hate, so this has been tough all the way around!

For the next 12 weeks of BLC - 20 I will:

Get up by 5am M-F to workout using Jamie Eason's LiveFit program, Curves and elliptical.
I'll also workout on Saturday, but not as early!
I choose to do this because I've learned from experience that If I don't do it before the day starts, it's way too easy to let the demands of the day wear me down or change my plans. I will also walk in the evening as weather permits. My dog is most appreciative of this!!

I will schedule an appointment for a physical. I need to know if there is a medical reason for what I see as sever loss of muscle tone, and how hard it's been to get back off the 25ish pounds I've regained over the past 2 years. I'm a little afraid to find out that there is NO reason, other than slacking!

I will PLAN (that ugly word again!) a weeks worth of healthy meals and snacks and go to the grocery myself to make sure I get what I need. My husband tries, but he gets a little confused!

I will track and stay within my food ranges at least 6 out of 7 days a week, and not go crazy on the one day I may go over!!! I feel like it's ok not to be perfect, but that does not mean it's ok to eat 2 days worth of food in one day!

If possible, I will check in with my great team mates at those times when I JUST WANT TO EAT! I will be a strong and reliable team member for my mighty AMBER AMAZON WARRIORS!!!!!

    Great goals - great picture there with all your early morning friends! And - I think you have great legs. I know that we are critical of ourselves. I wonder if we will ever be totally happy with our bodies - but if we can be happy with ourselves and our progress and that we are making good decisions, then our outlook will change.

    You following the JE eating plan too? I am for now and finding I am not tempted to binge because I guess the protein keeps me feeling full.

    I'm so proud of you for making that hard decision to get up early and get that exercise done. That is the only way for me as well. Too easy to let it slide otherwise.

    Go get'em Annie, you like the rest of us Amber Amazon Warriors can do it!!!

    Love the equipment and we are all over judgmental of ourselves but you look great and you can do it. Great idea to check in with the DR and make sure all is working accordingly. It is a nice piece of mind.

    Good luck. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You can do this, Annie! Often I think we're more critical of ourselves than anyone else.

    emoticon Great Plan! emoticon

    First of all, enough beating yourself up about a picture. (Says the chicken that has yet to post her own. LOL) You look like a woman that is doing it, getting stronger...a Warrior!!! And I am jealous of your workout equipment too! LOL By the way, I can send my husband with a detailed list and somehow I usually have to go myself later. So you are not alone in that, either. I'm here if you need a friend.

    This is an ambitious plan Annie; you are definitely getting serious! You absolutely can do this! If not perfectly, certainly good enough to see success. That's what success takes: a plan, measurable goals, drive. You have it all! Keep us posted! Hugs.
