April Retropsective/May Goals

Monday, May 07, 2012

Time to look back on what happened in April, and set some goals for May. Actually, it's a little late because last week was a really tough week for a lot of reasons.

So, April in review:

Things that went well:
- Logged into Sparkpeople every day
- Tracked my food every day
- Went from running under 5 minutes continuously to running 25 minutes continuously
- Lost 3 pounds
- Logged 1510 fitness minutes
- Was very consistent with my workouts
- Went from drinking 6+ cans of diet coke per day to 2 cans or less per day
- Went from drinking almost no water to 8+ cups of water per day

Things that didn't go so well:
- Lots of bouncing around on the scale
- Was hungry a lot of the time (I've changed my weight loss goal and updated my fitness minutes to account for this -- now have a higher calorie target)
- Still finding it difficult to keep motivated

By May 31st I will:

Be able to run 30 minutes continuously
Be able to run 5K
Have reached $250 raised for the Relay to End Kids Cancer
Have logged more than 1510 fitness minutes
Have lost 6.5 pounds (I'm going to write a separate blog post on how I came up with this number)
Continue to drink 8 cups or more of water each day
Continue to limit diet coke to 2 cans or less each day

To help me with motivation, I will:

Log into Sparkpeople every day
Track my food every day
Blog at least once a week
Read the blog posts of my Sparkfriends
