April Goals

No Soda

I gave this up for Lent, but have been slack with it.  It’s funny because before I told myself I couldn’t have it, I barely drank it.  Once it was on the NoNo list, I couldn’t resist.

I’ve stocked up on soda water & iced tea, so I’m hoping these things will help me get through it this go around.

Exercise 4 times a week

Even if it’s just a walk with Dad, I really need to get back in the habit of making time to workout.

Sticking with the Couch to 5k program, too.  I’ve been lax as of late, because I haven’t been working out as much, but it is still something I want to finish & successfully be able to do.

I also want to work on my arms more.  The summer is coming and I want to wear cute dresses without feeling the need to put a sweater over it.

Cook More

Since I’ve been living at home my dad has been cooking dinner.  He normally does a protein, a veggie and a starch.  All good, since I keep away from the starch (usually). But sometimes he’ll boil the veggies so all their goodness is taken out - basically, he doesn’t make the food I like to eat. But it makes my life simple, so I eat it.

I’m going to try to make 1-2 items over the weekend and save it for the rest of the week either as dinner or take it to work for lunch. I also want to bring snacks to work to keep my eyes off the candy pile.

Catch Up!

Challenge Failure

A friend of mine & I had a challenge going with one another to see if we could lose 17lbs by March 31.  We started in mid-January… so that gave us about 12 weeks.

She did great and lost 13lbs (so proud of her!) and I lost about 8.  (I’m offically weighing in at WW tomorrow morning).  Obviously, I didn’t do as well as I set out to do, but with a vacation in there, a few nights of drinking and not a terrible amount of exercise the last few weeks.. I’ll take it.  8 pounds is 8 pounds.

Diet Change Up

I’ll be moving in about 4 weeks (fingers crossed I find an apartment by then) for work.  And I’ll have to cancel my current WW membership.  I’m thinking of starting fresh in the new place and just going Paleo, or something similar.  I know the basics, but will read more on it in the next few weeks.

I’ve enjoyed WW, but spending $50 a month is a lot and I’m so busy, half the time I don’t stay for the meetings.  Although, it is something I would love to finish through & become a lifetime member.

Has anyone attempted doing WW & Paleo? What are your thoughts on starting fresh in a new place?

ONEderlands for Twenty Five

I’m turning 25 in 6 days. EEEEEK! And my scale this morning read 200.0.  This gave me the idea (and incentive) to kiss the 200’s goodbye and keep them a far away memory.

I think that would set the tone for not only a fantastic year, but for the second half of my 20s!

A few things I’m thinking of doing the next few days to get me there are cutting the sweets & soda (for real) and increasing my water & exercise. Any other suggestions?

Even though I’ve lost 22 lbs (19 w/ WW so far) I still feel the same size … Or even bigger some days.

Maybe this is all bc ill be on vacation in 6 days and the thought of shorts and tanks and bathing suits (OH MY) is not a happy one. Not to mention I’m supapale.
