April Goals and March Goals Recap

Monday, April 01, 2013

March Goals:
*Continue 10 minutes of daily exercise streak.
*Follow half marathon training plan without missing a run
*Incorporate strength training at least 2x per week
*Eat mindfully. Taste each bite. Slow down. Realized when I'm full.
*Think before you eat.
*dedicate 45 minutes to abs each week (can split up if needed)

I'm still doing my 10 minutes daily exercise streak! For the past 2 weeks, I've been having trouble with getting out to run, and covering my mileage while running. I've missed a few runs and had a really bad run Wednesday and even worse run Saturday. I've been doing well incorporating strength training, although I haven't been in the gym much (doing more videos). I've also been doing some ab videos online and in the gym , so I think I've met my 45 minutes goal (or at least made a huge leap towards it!). Food-wise, I've been all over the place. I haven't been within my calorie range in about 2 weeks. Seriously, that long. I've also had quite a few days in the past 2 weeks where I haven't tracked. Of course, were are my worst days too! I have tracked pretty religiously for the past year, so not tracking is pretty bad for me.

April Goals:
*Continue 10 minutes of daily exercise streak.
*Download new music for ipod.
* Find new running routes, videos, workouts etc.
*Dedicate 45 minutes to abs each week
* 15 pushups per day (450 for the month).
* 15 squats per day (450 for the month).
*Dedicate time to eating each meal. Stop multitasking and just eat (no tv, work, computer etc).
*Track all food daily.

My plan for the month is to like exercising again! I do not want it to feel like a chore. I also want to put a larger emphasis on tasting my food, not just scarfing it down. I'd like to eat my lunch outside if it's nice or turn off my monitor at work and concentrate on the my meal. And plan my meals! I honestly eat much less when I plan my meals.

    I should probably start doing something like your 15 a day pushups and squats. I am so bad about exercising daily. I did really well for the first week of January and then that's all gone down the tubes since then...,

    Thats so great you're still keeping your 10min streak up! Every little something counts, I know you've suggested that to me before so maybe I really need to consider it. Otherwise, awesome goals!

    With the weather changing, I think it will help you start enjoying your workouts again. If nothing else, you can go for a long walk and enjoy the sounds of spring around you.

It is hard to like it long term, I've found that I have to change things up pretty continuously to not get bored. I know you'll be able to get back into your groove!

    Awesome! Don't stress about bad/missed runs. Just focus on what you have ALREADY accomplished :)

Downloading new tunes and finding new places to run are probably 2 of my favorite things about running! It never has to be the same run twice, even if you are running the same number of miles!

Keep it up emoticon
