    Proud mom of boys, LEO wife, English teacher, fitness enthusiast - ready to get my challenge on!

  • Smart choice! I'm just so excited I'd start today. Lol

  • Hey Wholeheartedly, I am starting BFL on Monday also! I look forward to the challenge and most importantly, someone to keep me accountable!

  • For health reasons, I'm looking forward to starting the challenge as soon as possible. I will call EAS on Monday to double check that we would qualify for 2014 Round One, and I'm 99% confident we do, after noticing Round One's start dates are 12 weeks from the end of 2013's Round 4 dates. :)

  • Welcome aboard, Tlethco!

  • Hi wholeheartedly!  Thank you for telling me about your thread here.  Im still planning on starting this Monday. I definitely do need encouragement and people to be accountable to.  :-)

  • Wholeheartedly - let us know what BFL says about Monday - if it can't be an "official" start, it's going to be a "prep" week for me - in fact, I'm headed to the gym right now.I need this too much to put it off any longer! I have my meal plan set for the day, and later today I'll work out the entire week.

    I keep my nutrition logs and training logs in Google Drive if anyone would like me to share... nothing impressive, let me warn you, but if a spreadsheet might help someone, you could take it and modify to your own needs! :)

    I also use MyFoodDiary to calculate my macronutrients... I'm a data nut that way. I like to be able to tweak and change as necessary, but I learned long ago that fitness is 70% nutrition.

  • Ok - Workout is in, so I'm going to post here for my own accountability!

    B: Nutrition Shake w/ Hemp Protein

    Workout: Lower Body Weights - DONE!

    MM: EAS Carb Control Protein Drink

    L: Cabbage Soup, 1/2 cup Cottage Cheese

    MM: Orange

    S: Crock pot Veggies

    SN: Cottage Cheese

    Nutrition is a SIGNIFICANT component of any fitness program. If the nutrition isn't right, you are wasting your time!! I'm shooting for a 30P/50C/20F Macro split, so now I'm headed off the plan my nutrition for the week! :)

  • Wow, MissKimmie! Excellent! :)

  • Thanks, Wholeheartedly!! It takes me a while to get back into crafting my nutrition just right because I make it complicated - LOL! But I know it's what works for me. If I spend that much time making a plan, I'm much more motivated to stick to it! Failing to Plan = Planning to Fail!!

    And you can just call me "Kimmie" - or "Kimberly." :D

  • Hey - I wondered if you wanted to come up with a catchy name and start a new thread tomorrow for our "Official" Challenge thread?? :D  I noticed the one called "BFL Coffee Crew" (obviously a morning group!) and thought it would be fun to have a fun name. Thoughts??

  • My name is Sandra (pronounced Saundra), BTW. I like the idea of having a team name, Kimmie. Let's all brainstorm!

    I planned my meals and workout for tomorrow. I'll visualize tonight before going to bed. I'm ready!

    How's everyone feeling???

  • It's good to meet you, Sandra! I like to have names, too. :)

    oooh... Visualizing and mediating is definitely something I need to work on! I need to set up a new list of Daily Accountability Goals. I have my workouts set and my nutrition is in good shape. I'm in the process of setting my goals for the 12-week challenge.

    I'm SO ready! Tomorrow will be UBWO for me. I have my spreadsheets ready! :)

    Feeling EXCITED!!!
