My Success Plan For April

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, March 31, 2014



Today is day 21 of my streak!

I am going to make progress in April.

I'm not going to just dream about it or hope for it. I'm going to WORK for it.

One day and one choice at a time, I am going to put forth my best effort to make progress towards my goals. I know I won't be perfect, and I'm not even going to try. But I WILL try to make each day as good as possible.



I'm going to be 53 years old at the end of April. Its hard for me to believe that! It seems like I was a teenager not so long ago. Time sneaks up on you. I wasted too many days (and years), sitting around and dreaming of what my life would be like if I wasn't overweight, instead of getting up and doing something about it. But I'm not going to waste even more days by regretting that. Instead, I'm going to keep getting up every day and doing something that will help me make progress towards my goals.

I've already got three weeks of being on track under my belt, so I might as well keep on going!





So in order to make April a rock star month, I am committing to working out every day (except for my regularly scheduled rest days) and to eat right. I will eat real food, and cut down on processed foods as much as possible. I will weigh and measure my portions.



My April workout is 10 Pound Slimdown Xtreme with Chris Freytag, and its a 28 day workout plan. Its a tough workout, and I will have to modify the high impact parts. But I will still be working hard! In addition to that workout, I will also be doing Les Mills Pump and DDP Yoga on alternate days.

My big goal to reach by the end of April is to get rid of those elastic waist jeans and be able to fit into my regular jeans again. Of course, I will also be on the lookout for some NSV's along the way!

  My inspiration is "This time next year you will wish you had started today." Found this after finding that I first signed up for Spark People in 2006-eight years ago. Somehow a switch was thrown and so far I'm on Day 33 of tracking. emoticon

    Great! Inspiring! So on point. You put in words my own thoughts and feelings (I have been tracking for 21 days now and will be 53 in June this year). I especially liked the part "I know I won't be perfect, and I'm not even going to try. But I WILL try to make each day as good as possible."
