BLC Mission Slim-possible Day 1

Wednesday, June 07, 2017

Challenge Day 1 is going great! Part of our challenge is to up our game in fitness in the way of logging mileage and then also in minutes of strength training. Well I don't do strength training really. I'm hoping I've turned a new leaf and committed to doing 15 minutes of strength training at least 3 times a week, in addition to my regular cardio (dancing). This afternoon, even though it is so hot in this house right now, I turned on my Xbox Kinect and played the Your Shape game. I did a 16 minute Tai Chi class and it was ridiculously difficult for a body this size. But I did it! By 6 minutes I was looking at the timer and wondering how I couldn't even be done half yet. But I did it! I finished it. I was sweating like a hog in the sun after but I am so pleased with myself. I also did 20 minutes of Cardio Kickboxing just because the Xbox was already on anyways so why not?

I had a delicious spinach salad for brunch today. I'm drinking water at every opportunity. I am going to take my metformin tonight. I'm still trying to get past the first few days. I will take it for 2 days then stop for 2 because of the sick it causes me. I have to do it though. I followed my diet an exercise to a T in May and gained 2 pounds (and I'm up in all my inches as well). PCOS is so frustrating.

I won't dwell on that right now. I'm excited to be on this challenge and I feel so motivated. I'm going to dance for 40 minutes tonight and I am hoping I feel good tomorrow so I can wake up and start with Tai Chi again.

Yay Day 1 Success! I have to add that I hope everyone on my team had an equally great day and that you're feeling as motivated as I am in this moment. Let's use it to propel us forward!

    Good luck with the challenge. I hope it will help you reach some of your goals. Sorry to hear that the metformin is making you sick. Hopefully, you will adjust to it so that quits happening.

    So happy to hear you had a great day 1!!! You did awesome! So sorry to hear about the metformin!! O was hoping that as you took it, you'd get better with the side effects. I'm afraid to take it.
    My day was OK. I'm super excited about this challenge and certainly LOVE my team!!

    How low carb are you eating? I still have carbs, but low GI ones and not very often. Just curious. We could cheer each other on!!

    Here's to a second great day!!
