May's Goals

Monday, April 30, 2012

It is amazing that the past few weeks past so quickly and it is time to create May's Goals. I had 5 goals for the last few weeks of April when I stated I was going to start back up again. In actuality I struggled the first week and have only been on track for the past 5 days. In those few weeks I forgot all those goals except for logging my food and drinking my water.

In the past few weeks I have learned that I need to stop thinking I am going to be perfect at this and to just relax. To truly let each day come. I need to stop beating myself up and thinking I am a failure when I don't meet one of my goals each day.

So from what I have learned the past few weeks and well just tried to hide for awhile my first goal is to allow myself to relax and be okay with not being perfect. I don't want to stress where I binge and then make myself sick. Yep, did this a week ago.

Second goal is to complete the Spring Bootcamp Challenge with Spark People. In this challenge I will log my food, exercise and water. I want this challenge to bring consistency but I don't want to stress out either. Again, find the balance and let things go when I have a bad day.

Third goal - I would like to loose 5 lbs by the end of may. That gives me one lb a week to loose. To not stress about it, I am not going to weigh until the end of the month.

Here is to a successful month.

    Your goals are very good! You can do it! I am with you on letting go of trying to be perfect.

    Sounds like you have a great plan for May. I know you will rock it!

    None of us are perfect... I try to strive for consistency, knowing that a blip or two on the radar once in a while doesn't derail all my hard work the rest of the time.
