April goals

Sunday, April 08, 2012

Well, it's taken me until the second week of April to come up with my goals for the month.. but better late than never!

My first goal is to lose another 10 pounds this month and break into the 170's. I know that will feel so good.

My second goal is to get 100 points every week in the SASS challenge. I didn't do it this week, so this goal is from this day forward.

My third goal is to work on being more organized. I have so much to do during the day with all the kids that I feel time slips away from me, leaving no time for things that I had planned to do.

My fourth goal is to journal. I've been slacking with my gratitude journal, and that has helped me in the past to feel more positive. This past week has been a real downer and I don't like that. I need to do good things for myself. I've also started a "bitch" journal. It helps me talk out the frustration I feel in a better way than throwing a temper tantrum like a child. I cannot let the frustration fester anymore. It is what made me fat in the first place.. Not going down that road again. Being healthy feels to good to let myself go back down that path.


Today I fit into a size 14 capri and a large tank blouse that I bought about five years ago.... and I actually wore high heels. I felt good.. really good. I am looking forward to shopping again. I don't hate what I see in the mirror anymore.

Today I didn't overindulge with food. The first holiday that I can remember where I didn't do that. I took a little bit of everything I liked, especially the antipasta and deviled eggs. I made a very low calorie dessert that everyone enjoyed, even my parents (I didn't tell them it was healthy!). I didn't feel cheated because I didn't stuff myself with all the delicious food.

Today, instead of lounging on the couch after eating, I went for a short walk with my husband. The weather was nice and I felt better to walk it off a little. I think it helped the food digest easier. I'm not feeling bloated right now, which is a good thing.

I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday!!
