The Goal Post

New month, new goals. And time to revisit the goals for March to see how I did.

March goals:

*Lose 5 pounds (though more would be fantastic!) DONE! I lost 6 pounds
*track all of my food No. There were some rough days this month and I did not track them.
*have at least 500 calorie deficit per day Most days I had more. Sometimes I did not.
*Do 30 Day Shred: 3x the 1st week; 4x the 2nd week; 5x the 3rd and 4th weeks Grew tired of the Shred quickly and stopped.
*do C25K program 3x a week DONE! I'm a graduate now!
*on days that I don't do Shred, do SparkPeople 10 minute cardio video No. I started doing Turbo Jam.
*do something for ME each day Semi-done. There were a couple of rough days this month when I did not take care of me.

New Year's Goal: Try something new each month.
January: Got eyelash extensions (they're gone now) and tried Zumba.
February: Go on a ghost tour and ate at a fondue restaurant. Ran my first mile. Great feeling!
March: ran in the rain. Loved it! Made me feel like a kid again. Also got to meet blogger friend Shelley in person!

  • lose 5 pounds (more would be better)
  • run 5 miles
  • run 3x a week
  • strength train at least twice a week
  • track food
  • keep at least 500 calorie deficit
  • try something new
  • keep better schedule with kids' school
  • get on a schedule for cleaning house (I hate cleaning! but I love a clean house)

That should keep me busy!

Have a great weekend. I'll catch up with blogs when I get back from camping. :)
