BLC 22

Saturday, June 08, 2013

I have decided to try a new approach for BLC22. As I learn more about myself and my journey towards living a healthy lifestyle, I have decided to take a different approach to "my plan". "Diets" do not work for me...I can be somewhat stubborn and if I think that I can't have something, or am told that I can't, then out comes that child in me that stomps its feet and has a hissy fit.

For this challenge, I am committed to recording EVERYTHING that passes my lips and to be very mindful of what I am choosing and why. My goal is to work towards at least 30% of my daily calories to be from vegetables and I will choose whole foods whenever possible.

I will push myself to find new and enjoyable ways to move my body and to build my strength and will do some form of healthy movement on a daily basis.

    Very simple and well put. Good luck and I agree with Pam - NO diets/no omissions.

    You must have found internet access at Jan's or something. LOL

    No diets, never tell yourself you can't have something, trade the stuff you don't care so much about for those things you love, and know that you only have to behave 80% of the time to make a difference. I've also found that finding a way to just turn the exercise intensity up a skoach makes a big difference.

    Hope you are having a wonderful time camping and meeting new/old friends.
