It's a new month! April Goals

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

April snuck up me. emoticon

I remember the last time I did the weight loss "thang", I used to set goals for each month. It worked well.

So let's visit what *didn't* work in March.

tracking *anything* daily
scheduling *anything.


I'm usually up at 5am, and gone by 7am, home for a bit of lunch, and then I'm not home again until 9pm. This is simply *not* the year for me to try to run any of my extra curiculars on a schedule. goals for april will be more loosy goosy. I *will*

Drink 8 glasses of water each day
Make sure I eat as well as I can
Get exercise in when I can
Respect the fact that being in school for 5 hours a day, and working 6 more hours after school is pretty darn busy, and I shouldn't feel guilty about missing workout days.

Ummmmm...yeah. let's see how that works out. So for I've been averaging 1 pound a week. I could probably lose faster if I was more dedicated, but that's about the best I can do for now. :)

    Way to have given me an idea to try. Rather than looking at the whole picture and feeling frustrated because success doesn't seem to be happening, I will look only at April and focus on 2 or 3 managable goals. Thank you for the idea! You sound so positive! Keep going and I wish you the best with juggling all of your activities.

    1 pound a week isn't bad. It can be very hard to get in exercise when you're really busy. It has definitely been a struggle for me this year. One thing I have done is set an expectation for myself that I will fit in at least 2 workouts a week, no matter what. Even with a busy schedule, through this approach, I have made it to the gym twice a week every week for almost a year.
