Awesome April

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

I posted my goals for the month yesterday and filled out my goal calendar. I am ready to go! Today was good. I won't be able to work out due to work constraints but my nutrition has been on point. Lots of protein and vegetables. Its so funny how eating junk is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Today, my co-worker brought me a piece of chocolate. I thanked her, put it in my pocket and forgot about it. I would not have been able to do that ten days ago! Its like food has no pull over me right now. Whereas sometimes I'm magnetized. I'm determined to keep this streak going and not to squander it.

Last year, March was huge for me -- I got into Onederland for the first time since 2006! And I've managed to stay there ever since. I let my one year Onederland anniversary pass without comment -- but it's a big deal! In spite of all the difficulties I've been having lately, I have not let my weight get completely out of control. I've never stopped thinking about it, stopped working at it, stopped working out or any of that. That is a huge accomplishment!

With that said, it's time for some progress!! I've got forward momentum now and I'm not leeting it go! Onward and upward, Sparkfriends!!

    I love it when the food doesn't sway me. Doesn't happen often, but when it does it makes me feel like I can do it all!

7 Days of Success, March Results and April Goals

Monday, March 31, 2014

Wow, this is the longest streak of healthy behavior I've had since my big life upheaval (moving in August, starting a new job in October). My eating has been on track for a week, complemented by ample exercise and water. I have lost 4.8 pounds to show for it. In some ways stringing together those 7 days was the hard part. Now I'm feeling ready for change, ready to get in shape for Spring, ready to be in shape for my Miami trip which is now less than two weeks away. I hope to streak right up until the trip -- and dare I say, on the trip? I'm feeling really good about my streak and I look forward to growing it, starting with today.

MARCH RESULTS

Pounds lost: 4.8
Fitness minutes: 2732

APRIL GOALS

1) 60g of carbs per day
2) At least one toning session per week
3) Lose 7 pounds.

April will be the last full month I have before my BFF's wedding in May. We're renting the dresses so I have my pick of sizes. So, I'm not so much worried about fitting into the dress as I am about feeling my best in it! I definitely want to go hard in April to make that reality. Spring! Shorts! Sun! Fun! Travel! April is going to be a blast.

    Great job for March! I know you will continue to kick butt! (could you kick mine while you are at it... I need a jump start! LOL)

You know you will feel good in the dress simply because you will feel good about yourself after another month of healthy eating and exercise! emoticon
