This week has been hectic, but that is no excuse for me to lose sight of my goals. Preston and I are heading to Mexico in May, and I would like to be in the 120s for that trip! It will be a lot of work and focus in the next month and a half, but I am firmly committed to this new goal.
It was nice maintaining and relaxing through March, but I must say that having purpose feels better. I was a little lost just eating and staying the same… it feels good to back with a plan!
My goal schedule is as follows:
April 1. I was 136.0
April 15. 133
April 29. 131
May 13. 130
May 20. 129
Setting small goals can act as a step within your big dream. It helps me stay on track and monitor my progress. Just saying I want to lose 5 lbs can be difficult to conceptualize and remain focused on.
I started with big leaps and then aim for only losing half a pound a week by the end. It is always easier to pull a “big” number when you begin. Today, April 4, I am 133.2.
I will weigh in and report back to the blog every other Friday to help me stay accountable. My meal plan is 1200 daily calories and I will be lifting at least 5 days a week. As April draws to a close (and my life is less busy with term papers) I will increase the cardio depending on my weight.
What spring/summer goals do you guys have?
