Happy April! I love this weather - Different goals this month & outside pics included!

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Thank you to everyone who has supported me! I really appreciate it. Every compliment and piece of advice and support really helps me going forward! Thank you!

Normally every month I post my goals for the month. I have been very busy with work and my personal life. Instead of posting my normal goals, I just want to post about what I would like to accomplish this month and what I have planned.

I have two 5K races. One is 4/7 and the other is 4/27. Since I have been on the antibiotics, I have not been exercising because I still don't feel 100%. I am doing yoga tonight after work. I definitely don't feel ready for my race on Sunday - I want to ask my Dr if I should do it or not. Maybe I will walk most of it if I don't feel well. I still want to go even if I can't run.

Once tax season is over, I will have time to go to Zumba again. I miss going! The weather is nicer, so I want to be outside. I just have to definitely make sure I check for ticks right away. I am still waiting for my test results.

Instead of having a weight loss deadline this month, I am getting rid of it for now. Instead of feeling disappointed, I want to focus on other things I KNOW I can do. I do want to reach 155, but I know it won't be this month. I need to work up to exercising more often. I will get there, I just know it will not be this month.

This month I want to accomplish:
-Keep tracking my fitness and food
-More craft projects.
-Keep moving forward - happiness is very important!
-Plan more girls-day-out events if I can.
-Pay off more bills
-Be outside and exercise as much as I can
-Not worry about my weight loss goal. I still want to track, but I got rid of my deadline

I did an Easter pot project which turned out pretty cute. When I get more free time, I want to make more things. I miss doing that!

Hopefully everyone has a fantastic April - actually hopefully you have a great week & a great day! Whenever I get sick, I am thankful for every day I have where I don't feel sick. Since I am feeling a bit better, I am trying to be thankful the best I can! There is a lot going on in everyone's lives, and every bit helps! Don't give up on your goals - just modify them. I am not giving up on my weight loss. I am just changing it to help me get through it!

    Loved the pics of your beautiful blossoms. I have a 'black thumb' and really appreciate someone who can successfully garden. Ginger looks comfy (I think the kitty's name is Ginger...please forgive if I've mis-spoken)!

    It looks beautiful out! As far as your goals, that is kind of what I am doing too. I am modifying the small things in order to reach long term success. This month I have two big nutrition goals. 1 is to cut out fried foods, and the other is to cut out soda. I have almost given into temptation a few times, but so far so good. I have also made a goal of working out 3x per week. I think these kinds of thinks help rather than focusing solely on weight. Good luck!

    Love the little pots of pansies. They are so cute! I've been trying to get more crafts in too. I have a bag with everything I need to paint some rocks (I found flat ones that are in the exact shape of fish. they need to be painted :) Hope you feel better soon. Glad you got going on the antibiotics quickly. Way to go on your goals. I think April is going to be an awesome month!

Oh yes.....the cat is tooooooooooooo cute!

    Love your Easter pots! How cute!!

Even walking a 5k is a good makes a lot of sense if you aren't up to running it.

    I'm sure you'll manage both 5Ks. Even if you have to walk the first one, just consider it a "warm-up" for the next one! I'm really glad you are feeling better and the flowers are lovely. And kitteh belleh! That makes me just want to rub the belly. I'm sure the cat would not approve though.

  The flowers are lovely - they make me feel like Spring might really be here! I'm sure you're looking forward to getting beyond April 15th, after which I hope your life normalizes a bit. In the mean time, it looks like you've got a fantastic list of things you want to accomplish this month. Keep pushing!

    Wow, I'm so used to seeing you with a ponytail in your pics! Your hair is cute!

And the pots look awesome!

I love your list of things you would like to achieve this month. As for Sunday - no shame in walking. It's better than sitting on the couch!
