With a new month starting, that means it’s time to talk about goals. I’ve had very similar goals each month since the year began. I am always sticking to the no fast food (best thing I ever did for my food intake). And I am definitely continuing on with the very low sugar. As I’ve said before, I am feeling so much better by just doing these two things. But with spring here (I think… Wyoming seems to be a little confused on the issue), I want to make sure I am doing a little bit more.
I need to get moving. I am not even posting my weight loss numbers for March because my weight has stalled. I think my body had a shock reaction to the no fast food and low sugar. In shock, it dropped over ten pounds. I am so happy about that. But… I need to be active. The weight will not continue coming off if I don’t get my butt moving.
Along with my daily Bible study and vitamins, I need to be taking daily walks. Even if they are just short and around the block, I need to take them. I know that not every day will be a walking day. There is snow and there is life to consider. But five days a week is a good goal and I need to get moving so that’s what it is. No step number goal. No location goal. No time goal. Just get out and walk five days a week.
I will even use my trusty Happy Planner to track it. I so love habit trackers!
I am making one more food goal in April, and that is to eat more fruits and veggies. I haven’t been eating enough. I’ve been stuck in winter comfort food mode. It’s time to snap out of that, plain and simple.
Lose 4 Pounds
It’s totally realistic, but only if I get moving. Food alone will not get me where I need to be.
I still haven’t cashed in my rewards for the past months. I have no reason other than I haven’t. I don’t like to shop for myself and getting my hair cut is a process and, and, and… I will get there! But for April, my reward will just be allowing myself to enjoy the family birthday season (end of April through mid-May) without guilt. I’ll enjoy treats like cake and the birthday weekends out. We let the kids choose what they do and I am going to be open to it all because I deserve it, and so do they.
Also, Curves is set to open in my town sometime in May… I’m planning to join.
