April Plan and Birthday month!

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

Happy April 1st! ;)
It is my birthday month (the 25th, so I have time to prepare) and the last month of marathon training!
I'm no where near my weightloss goal and have not made any progress, but backwards since marathon training! :( Boo! That is no April Fools

So simple commitment and goals for April

1. Cut sugar.. I need to eat like a diabetic so I don't become diabetic!
2. Cut carbs as grains.. focus on vegetable carbs for fueling the body for exercise.
3. MORE veggies!! I already have 2-3 fruit servings a day.. need to up the number of veggies!
4. Continue with training

Pretty simple, I'm training hard already.. I'll stick with my schedule and routine. It is my food choices that need redirection.. so here is the month to do it. At the end of the month, I'll reward myself on my birthday with a good quality treat!

What are your plans for April?
Focusing on food or fitness?

    Great plan... keep the big goal - Marathon- in mind ... you are doing fantastic! Keep posting too, I love reading how you are doing, it is keeping me motivated since my training plan is similar - just 2weeks off yours!
    I am the same way - not dropping weight but I am planning on being more cautious/ mindful this month ...
    We can do this!!!

    My focus this month is exercise. Just joined a gym after having to use a cane to walk for the last year. Injuries suck lemons, but what can you do.

    Good plan this month and have a happy birthday on the 25th emoticon

    Good plan! Try some lentils for protein packed carbs, and maybe cutting out 1 of your fruit servings and adding in the veggies. I've noticed it has helped and even though i LOVE fruit, I'm not making it my priority now and using it as more of a "treat." You can do this!!!
