April Goal Update


Wednesday, May 01, 2013

You may (or may not!) remember that I challenged myself to be in my target range for sodium 25 days out of 30 in April.

Well, I am proud to say - I did it! I was within my range for sodium 27 days out of 30 in April.

Here's my chart for April:


One of those days I was just a hair over my limit, but that's okay. I don't need to qualify it (much).

Just for fun, let's compare that to the same chart for November, my highest month for sodium since I've been on SparkPeople:


Um. Hello. I was only in range 2 days in November and way over my limit many days. Yikes!

According to the reading I've done here on SparkPeople, we are supposed to reward ourselves when we set goals and meet them. I think I'm gonna get a new nalgene bottle. I love those stupid things.



Now - what to do for May???

Honestly, the only challenge I've been able to come up with for myself is to get below 200 lbs dangit! I know it's better for these challenges to be *behavior* based not scale/weight based. But it's killing me. Just a few more pounds to go til one-derland!

So I guess that's it. My goal for May is to get below 200. My last weigh-in was 204 on April 26, so I better be able to pull this off!

    Hooray for you!!! I like the water bottle idea, though I always cracked my nalgenes and never liked the plastic-y taste of my water in them. I ended up switching to a stainless steel bottle and I love it to pieces! Almost literally. Mine is dented and well loved, but it's eco-friendly and durable and doesn't impart weird flavors to my water and I never go anywhere without it! Anyways, good luck with your next goal!

    That's GREAT with your sodium limit you met!!! I also reward myself and I like your bottle. I love earrings and get myself a pair when I lose 5-10 lbs!!!

You're goal of getting under 200 is AWESOME!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Great job meeting your April goal! I think your weight-based May goal is good, too, even though, as you say, behavioral goals are generally better. But this one is very doable, and represents a significant milestone, so it is as much about motivation and your mentality as it is about the pounds on the scale.
