April 2013 Goals

Thursday, April 04, 2013

...personal reflection...

...from mid February until the end of March: was dealing with health issues and doctor visits...exercise and nutrition suffered...was not getting enough calories in...didn't cheat, but was very fatigued and weak...being sick did not help...couldn't work out...

...milestone birthday goal met: Turned 40 on March 24th and met a goal of 215lbs...it's been 15 long and painful years since I saw that number on the scale! My original goal was to be at 200 lbs, but I think I would have gotten close to it had I not gotten sick...I was able to start exercising again the week before my birthday which helped me reach 215...

April 2013 Goals: Physical, Mental, Emotional

Emotional: April starts off with my final week of school for my degree in Paralegal...yes! I will walk the stage in May...it's been a long, long road to finally get a college degree...this marks another check off my goals list...I am on an emotional high right now...but still am worried about not reaching my fitness goal by July...it's depressing me that what comes so easily to others is so hard for me...

Mental: I will be focusing more time and attention to my fitness goals, now that I've recovered from being sick and I am finished with my classes...although I am a great multi-tasker, for my fitness goals I want to be able to concentrate only on my goals for at least the month of April before I start my next project.

Physical: My physical goals are to maintain my exercise schedule with two sessions AM & PM. I will continue my Keto diet with stricter modifications and maintaining my eating schedule of every 3-4 hours. I will continue to work out at home and in the gym, but plan to do some stuff outside as the weather has gotten better.

Goal to meet for the end of April 2013: at least 1.5"-2" overall fat loss in body....I don't use pounds lost as I already know that with my body, I lose fat but stay the same weight...probably because I develop muscle at the same time...as long as I'm looking and feeling good, then it doesn't matter :)
