I think this setting monthly goals is helping me get back on track, so I'm going to continue it for a while. Here are my goals for May:
- Track my food at least 5 days a week. This is going well and I want to keep it up. I think I may be tracking 6 days at least right now, but not sure.
- Exercise at least 4 days a week. Running at least 3 days a week, as per my training plan, and then cross training 1-2 days a week.
- Complete my 10K race on May 17th. I'm throwing that in as a freebie. I know it will get done. :)
- Lose 5 pounds. I hesitated to set a number goal of pounds to lose, but I think I need the motivation to try and get some of this weight off. I will not go back to weekly weigh-ins, but I will post my weight at the end of the month to see if I've succeeded. My last weigh-in was 171.0.
That's enough for now. I have been very good about tracking my food, even if it's a lot, and I continue to feel that all hope is not lost. Yay!
We have a trip planned to go out west to visit our family this summer and my hope is that between getting back to regular exercise and reigning in the overeating I can get closer to 160 for the trip...so my clothes will fit better again. :)
Thanks for checking in! I hope you're all having a nice week.
