Aahh! April!!! April and May are my 2 favorite months of the year! After the winter months it always feels like life is coming back again with April! I love it!
Day 122 of my accountability plan was yesterday, Saturday. It was my brother's birthday and there was a minor incident involving a cheesecake!! Other than that my day was great!
Goals for Saturday:
1- Exercise 60 minutes 6 days per week: Planned day of rest!
2- Track my food. Max 1830 calories per day. I think I finished the day at about 2300 calories. It's okay, I rarely eat cheesecake, and it was GOOOD!!
3- Drink minimum 8 cups of water daily: 8 cups done!
4- 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night and NO sparking after 10:30pm! I only slept 6 hours Friday night into Saturday morning, and I really felt it too!
5- Meditate minimum 10 minutes daily: not done again...
6- 3 veggies and 2 fruits daily: I had 1 veggie and 1 fruit only...
7- Take a multi-vitamin and a Calcium supplement daily: vitamins taken!
8- Report my progress to the world every day by writing my accountability blog: done now!
Now, I had promised myself that I was going to revisit my goals on April 1st. I want to lose 5 lbs this month, which will bring me to a total of 50 lbs lost! That's pretty motivating! So here I go, April's goals:
1- Exercise 6 days per week. No minimum time each day, I want to work on quality workouts as opposed to quantity. Continue to alternate one day of running with one day of crosstraining.
2- Track my food. Max 1900 calories per day.
3- Drink minimum 8 cups of water daily.
4- 8 hours of sleep every night. I am dropping the sparkcurfew, I need to work on sleep discipline in general!
5- 5 fruits/veggies
6- Take a multi-vitamin and a Calcium supplement daily
7- Report my progress to the world every day by writing my accountability blog.
This is totally feasible, and nothing but common sense I think!
Which brings me to today. I need to do my blog early as I am going to the sleep lab tonight for my sleep study. I have a ton of things to do before I leave too! So day 1 of my April goals is going like this:
1- Exercise 6 days per week: I went running with the group this morning and did 33 minutes, 4.2 km. I still can't believe how nice everyone is there, it's totally awesome!
2- Track my food. Max 1900 calories per day: So far I am at 1682 cals and that includes my dinner. So I should be okay for today!
3- Drink minimum 8 cups of water daily: 6 cups already drank, I'm sure I'll drink another 2 before I leave, if not more!
4- 8 hours of sleep every night: I did 7.5 hours last night, getting closer!
5- 5 fruits/veggies: I have already had 3 fruits and am planning 2 veggies for dinner.
6- Take a multi-vitamin and a Calcium supplement daily: already taken
7- Report my progress to the world every day by writing my accountability blog: done!
I am totally motivated and excited to continue with my goals for this month!! And by tomorrow morning I'll know why I'm so tired all the time. Is it just because I lack discipline in going to bed early, or do I actually have a sleep disorder? Either way, I am NOT going to wear a CPAP at night... I just hope I can sleep in the lab tonight with all the wires on!
Okay, gotta go, Happy April everyone!!
