april was not good, lesson learned.
Wednesday, April 30, 2014
march. march was amazing! i ate well. i exercised regularly. i didn't drink. ah, to be in march again.
april was not great. i ate well, but not well enough. i didn't exercise nearly enough. thanks to the rain and the snooze button. heh. and the weekends were a bit crazy. hello, fireball!
in a nutshell, i lost 12 lbs in march and 4 in april. i mean, a loss is a loss, but that's a bad, bad average.
so may is going to look a bit more like march. it has to! i will lose all motivation and regain all the weight i've lost. i know me, i've been in these shoes before.
i already posted my may goals and i'm not changing them, but reflecting on april has been an eye-opener. i mean, i had one obstacle in april: easter. the rest was all surprise obstacles. that's what summer is going to be. if i don't learn to handle them now april will be repeated for the next 4 months or so. and it will only get worse! i'll be hoping for a lb a week come august!
so far in may i have memorial day weekend and a trip to california for work. both should be pretty manageable as long as i plan and then follow through with that plan.
the one thing i've been strong with no matter what is water intake. i know that's been my saving grace.
i need to focus on working out this month. right now my only from of working out is walking during my lunch break. better than nothing, but not enough for me. i need to get back into my 4 am routine. i need to up the ante.
i also need to get my willpower back in action. a co-workers wife brought in cookies yesterday. i don't even want to tell you how many i ate. they were so good! but why wasn't one enough? no willpower? self-sabotage? fear of success? my three arch enemies rearing their ugly heads again.
tomorrow is the start of a whole new month. i want to make that month a good one. i want to be a success come this time next month. in one month i want to be able to write a blog about how amazing it was. my 5th sparkiversary is next month. i want to be proud of myself at that point. i don't want another anniversary to pass where i think to myself, there goes another year i've wasted. it's the most discouraging feeling and i'm tired of feeling it.
so, here's to may! one kick-ass month!
