March Review/April Goals

Sunday, April 05, 2020

March was a rough month for me. I was getting over from being sick with the flu in February..I believe..I never went to the doctor, but I had all the symptoms of the flu but and really sick for weeks. I still dont feel 100%. I didn't track my food, I didn't exercise as much as I wanted, I did pretty good with water and I did ok with sleep. Then, with everything going on in the world, its hard to deal with. Ive been doing a lot of emotional eating. I worry about so many things with it. Im sure almost everyone can relate to that. I gained weight for the month of March, but Im putting that behind me and moving ahead with April.
I know April will be another rough month with the way things are, so I decided to set some good goals, but goals that are easy to follow. April has started off rough, but its been better each day.

My goals for April

1. Go for a walk every day that the weather is permitting. This gets me outside for fresh air and gets me out of the house. My road hasn't had much traffic, so its easier to walk on the roads nearby my house.

2. Get 60 mins of exercise atleast 5 days a week. The other 2 days, get atleast 20 mins.

3. Simply- Move more, eat less.

4. Plan healthy meals each day. Planning will help keep me on track.

5. Keep busy so you dont eat out of boredom.

6. Limit how much you watch or read the news. Also limit social media.

I think keeping busy, planning my meals, limiting news and social media will help me with the emotional eating and help me make better choices.

    I agree. It's been difficult to stay focused and the comfort food seems to be my craving right now. I do all I can to avoid it but struggle with it. I refuse to watch TV news anymore and won't go to any You Tube channels. I just don't want to hear all the gloom and doom.

    Good luck in April. This to shall pass.

    It's hard to stay on track when you are sick. It's also very understandable to emotionally eat. I know many people are feeling stressed and anxious. It's good that you are putting March behind you as well as your emotional eating and moving forward. You have set some really good goals for this month. I agree with limiting how much you watch or read the news as well as social media. It has a tendency to just make things worse. It may be another tough month but with these goals you can make it a better month. emoticon emoticon
