April seems to be a wash already for getting any serious health going. I've been out of town most of the month already and will continue to do so. Not that I'm behaving recklessly with the diet. I'm a pretty healthy eater naturally...it just gets harder on the road. So, I'm thinking ahead and making plans for May. Perhaps spring will be in Montana by then as well.
Here's the plan:
Goal One: No more alcohol.
I don't drink that much. Never more than a drink or two and not every night. But, I seem to be allergic to more type of alcohol than I thought. Beer gives me a rash around my mouth. Now I'm noticing it with wine as well. And, I'm not supposed to be drinking with the Lyrica (I'm assuming because it makes you extra loopy, not that anyone has ever told me why). And, I want to start trying for a baby this fall, so I'll need to detox for that anyway. Not a hard goal, even though I love the taste.
Goal Two: Get back in the pool.
Master Swim has been frustrating me. Mostly I think because my back has been hurting more than when I started, and I'm not good at not being good at something right away.
Goal Three: Talk a walking break everyday at work.
My job actually encourages employees to get outside and walk a mile on breaks. I need to take advantage. I'm the girl who totally takes her lunch at her desk and it's Saturday and I'm in my office. I also usually wear heels to my job (even though we don't have to dress) but I'm already left a pair of shoes and socks in my cube. Now I just need cooperative weather and remember to go.
