I can’t believe it’s May already, but you know what that means…it’s time to review April’s goals and set some goals for the coping month.
April was a really fantastic month for me. I didn’t meet my goals 100%, but I’m really proud of how well I did. I’ve definitely started getting back on the road toward weightloss. I actually lost 1.5lbs this month. It’s not a huge amount of weight, but it’s a huge step forward in terms of progress.
I journaled 23 complete days of food and fitness as well as 3 partial days leaving only 4 days where I didn’t journal anything. I also started actively using SparkPeople again as a means of tracking my calories.
Since I didn’t meet all of the goal, I don’t get my juicer; however, since I still had a really great month I decided to reward myself with new running socks and a running skirt.
Honestly, my only goal for May is to keep up my current momentum. So my first two goals for May focus on the things that I feel have been really helpful lately. The third goal is something I hope will help build my momentum further.
- Continue food and fitness journaling. My goal is a minimum of 27 out of 31 days. (This allows me to miss one day a week.)
- Continue setting a single daily goal. The daily goals have been really helpful. My daily goals are pretty simple – usually just something I want to accomplish that day. Most of the time they’re food or fitness related, but sometimes they’re simply an errand I need to get done or something I’d like to do. In any case, they help keep me focused from day-to-day.
- I want to complete the Spring Shape-Up Bootcamp on SparkPeople with an 80% completion rate. The bootcamp is 4 weeks and consists of a daily workout video from the SparkPeople site as well as 5 cardio sessions per week. My goal is to complete at least 16 out of 20 cardio sessions and 24 out of 28 videos.
I haven’t actually decided on a reward yet, but I’ll let you know when I come up with something.
