April 2013 Goals

Holy March!  I am so thrilled with the success I had in March, I am going to have a hard time topping it in April!

My March goal was one goal and only one.  Follow the plan Larry gave to me to perfection.  I did it!  I rocked it!  I killed it!  I am in full beast mode!

No seriously, here are a few of my successes that I have going into April:

I feel strong – Working out at Crossfit has shown me that I do have strength.  I can’t wait to get even stronger!

I have lost inches – My pants feel better and my muffin top is decreasing!  Hallelujah!

I no longer have a food addiction – I plan to go into more detail about this in a longer post but for now, let’s just say I KNOW that my food addiction is gone.

My sweet tooth is minimal - I can’t say it is non-existent.  I don’t have any cravings but the peppermint patties in the fridge have called my name once or twice (don’t worry, I told them to be quiet!).

I enjoy working out – I can’t believe I am saying that!  I do love Crossfit and I love the way I feel when I am done.  STRONG!

I lost a few pounds – I am now down to the weight that I was last summer and I am on my way to getting back into the 170′s.  Five pounds in a month…I will take it!

With all that success, what should my goal be for April?

How can I improve on that?

Here are my April goals:

  • Continue to eat the way I am eating with no cheats.  This should not be too difficult. It has been pretty seamless thus far.  Cheats are no longer even in my vocabulary!
  • Workout two mornings a week BEFORE WORK- I would like to get up early, before work, two mornings every week.  This would ensure I get in five workout days a week (Three days of Crossfit and two days of walking).

There you go!  Two goals (I think I will add a goal each month!).

Notice that I am no longer making goals to lose pounds.  I think I have an addiction to the scale and I am trying to break that addiction.  I will talk more about that in a future post!

Bring on April – I am ready!

What are your goals for April?

    Awesome!! You are doing a great job.

    My goals this month are to increase my running speed and distance. (So far, I’m up to 5K–3.1 miles–in right at an hour). And take my run outside at least 1 day a week to build up my running time there.

    Great goals! And way to rock March!! My goal this month is just to keep pushing towards goal. After 4 years of doing Weight Watchers and losing almost 175lbs….I’m ready to freaking be there. These last 5lbs are being a pain!

    I’ve been doing CrossFit for six weeks and following the Paleo way of eating.. I’ve lost 13lbs… completely eliminated cravings (and hunger, really)… and I adore it! I can’t believe how nourished I feel.. and STRONG… and proud of myself… my life has changed these last six weeks dramatically.. all that to say I couldn’t agree with you more!!! I could have written this blog… Good on you girl.. Good on you!

    My goals for April are actually 14 days behind. But I’m going with:
    *Track my food consumption on Weight Watchers daily.
    *Begin Zumba (Tuesdays and Thursdays)
    *Drink 96 oz. of water/day (I did this for 2 months and lost 22 pounds).
    *Stick to the menu for the week – no cheating.
    Great job by the way. Looks like we’re in the same weight bracket. I started back on January 21st and I lost 22 pounds. The past month has been hell-a-shish (don’t look it up…it’s not in the dictionary). So, I’ve fallen off the wagon a little bit, but I’m dusting myself off and starting over. I’ve gained 2 pounds back, but that’ll be gone in a week. I hope!

    “I was recently in a similar situation, where I capped out at around 200lbs and I decided enough was enough. I took a fitness challenge and lost 19.8lbs in 24 days. Now I’m helping others get through their journey, if interested let me know! It is time to make a difference within ourselves.

      how did u do that??? sounds incredible..

    • Elena

      Do let us know what exactly did you do?

  • Elena

    i guess i am going to be regular on your blog since i am also in a similar situation. It will give me good enough motivation. I lost 5kgs in last 2 months but in April my target is to lose 5kgs in one month. I am working out 6 days a week and followed healthy diet so far though i am thinking to switch to a high protein for a week or so.

  • Elena

    This month my goal is to avoid cheats in my diet. No matter what i will stick to my plan. And no eating after sunset. May be it sounds strange to you but it helps losing weight especially if you are one of those who tend to eat more at night. Plus dinner should be always 4 hours before bed time. I have seen friends try that and observed some really good results.
