I made some goals at the beginning of the month.
some of the goals I altered during the month due to lack of time and other activities that I replaced them with.

This months goal is to complete 1,000 pull-up, (I reduced to 50 a week)
3000 Russian Twist I am on track with this one.
do a 22 exercises 22 times 1 set for 22 days. Yes I did this.

first week of May complete a 5-5-5 and increase by 1 each week so by the last week of May I will be 8-8-8 (replaced with T-25 workout and have been on track with the workout.)

do 1 cize dance a week ( on track)

run at least 3 miles a week. (almost, I will make this a goal for June as well. I love to run on Saturday mornings with my running group, but sometimes I have I cant make it.)

This is along with my regular gym days. (I missed one Wednesday and have only made it to the gym twice on a Saturday.

Over all I did very well with my goals.
With all this activity one would thing that I could shred more pounds, the thing is I love the taste of food so I eat it. I like to have a glass or two of wine on a Saturday evening. I have to workout to either stay at the weight I am at or workout extra hard to loose a couple of pounds.

I have been paying more attention to what I have been eating and making sure that if I am going to eat that tasty food I have an activity to keep me balanced.

My exercise plan?
walking at recess, Gym at least 3 times a week, workout at home; I invested in Shawn T CIZE and a weight watchers ab workout. running on Saturdays and maybe a dance video as well.

When life gets sticky as it usually does, I will not forget that I am God Begotten, and I will remember that my Lord is only a breath away.
I will continue with my goals of the past.
part of my plan is to continue with the following.
My new challenges is to try not to complain so much. I have realized that I have been doing way to much of that lately too.
I am going to add that into my daily challenges.
I am going to not complain for at least 1 hour out of each day. :)
this will make me aware of what I choose to talk about. Each time I find myself starting to speak negative I will do my best to think of something positive. It will be difficult at first but after a while it will become easy.
that is my new challenge.
Not so much loosing pounds but loosing negative thoughts. Then I will work on the pounds.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Having a healthy snack right before you shop will put you in a healthier frame of mind & lead you to make smarter choices. Snacking on an apple may do more than just keep the doctor away.

    If eaten before a grocery store trip, you may buy more freggies than if you ate a cookie (or didn’t have a snack at all). Don’t care for apples? Any nutritious snack will put you that mind frame.

    Mini-Challenge for this week: “Count Your Blessings”

    emoticon emoticon Don’t just count calories, and don't just count your reps … “Count Your Blessings.” Giving thanks can do a lot more than just change your outlook on life. It can also benefit your body, your health, and even the number on the scale. Be thankful of what your body can do, and think of exercise as a gift you’ve been given—rather than a chore. . . and you’ll be more likely to stick with it!
