I am not setting a goal for running miles just yet because my hip and knee are still not being very cooperative. Instead i am setting a fitness minute goal for the month. The fitness minute goal is also part of two different team challenges which I am going to be updating about in my blogs.
The other thing i am changing this month is my food tracking. I am still going to keep track of everything I eat, I am just not going to use the food tracker. I usually start out really good with the food tracker but the minute I find myself eating something that I am unable to track because it would take way to long to figure the calorie and nutrition count I am done. Today for example had oatmeal and a banana for breakfast...no problem there, now lunch however turns into a problem. I made a Lentil stew and have no idea what the calorie count is and to go and put it all into a recipe and find all the ingredients on spark it would take me a good half hour or more! Sorry but I dent have all day to sit on the computer... I've got a lot of fitness minutes to get in this month! So what I am going to do this month is keep a daily log of everything I eat, no calories or anything just the food. I plan on eating clean and only healthy foods so hopefully this will work for me .
Okay, so on to my April Goals:
~ 2000 fitness minutes (only 66 a day which for me is reasonable and shouldnt be a problem )
~ Track all food eaten
~ minimum 5 planks or 50 crunches daily (part of the Partying Penguins Monthly challenge)
~ Spring is here! The bike is my new form of transportation whenever possible
~ 8 glasses of water a day
~ eat clean
