April goals and just checking in

Okay, so not doing great at blogging oh well. This is for me so I post when I feel like it.

March stuff

So these were my goals for March

Goal #1 - Big focus - me and my binge eating. Huge problems there and when this gets out of control everything else goes with it. When I'm stressed or super tired I eat. So setting a goal for no binge eating for the month. Scheduled cheat days 4 for the month, but I really would like to see none of them turn into binges.

Goal #2 - Push ups, leg raises, and squats - 1000 for the month. Bring it! I am SURE I can make this goal.

Goal #3 - 100 miles or better. Setting this one a little lower. I need to have some successes and damn it March is going to be a good month.

I met one goal and almost met another. I hit 100 miles for the month and ate healthy for the most part 25 days out of the month. I had a 5 day stretch where I completely came unglued at the beginning of the month and almost said screw it all. I pulled myself back together. I really didn't lose much weight this month though which kind of surprised me, but it's all good. Keeping focused on my goals.

So here's the final tallies for March.

March miles - 100
Push ups - 764
Leg raises - 764
Squats - 764
Diet - 25 days were on track

April Goals

Setting the bar higher! If I want to get back in marathon shape and I do I need to do better. Even though I hit 100 miles this month, I only ran 19 days.

I don't want to go too crazy so baby stepping these goals.

Goal #1 - 110 miles or better with at least 22 days of running. At least 2 long runs of 10 miles or better, 2 hill workouts, and 2 speed workouts (or 5Ks).

Goal #2 - Push ups, leg raises, and squats - 1000 for the month. Trying again for this one.

Goal #3 - Diet staying with the same except giving myself 5 days that I can blow it. I've been doing better with this.

New month, new goals, March is in like a lion!

Okay, so February was a wash. Didn't meet a single one of my goals. Moving forward. Sometimes you just gotta keep on tweaking those goals and plans until you find something that works. I still think I can meet the goals I set for the year (except maybe the weight workouts because it's just not that important to me).

February miles - 83
Push ups - 740
Leg raises - 740
Squats - 770
Weights - 1
Diet - 16 days were on track

Goals for March 

Goal #1 - Big focus - me and my binge eating. Huge problems there and when this gets out of control everything else goes with it. When I'm stressed or super tired I eat. So setting a goal for no binge eating for the month. Scheduled cheat days 4 for the month, but I really would like to see none of them turn into binges.

Goal #2 - Push ups, leg raises, and squats - 1000 for the month. Bring it! I am SURE I can make this goal.

Goal #3 - 100 miles or better. Setting this one a little lower. I need to have some successes and damn it March is going to be a good month.

Now, I'm also switching things up and setting weekly goals and giving myself rewards at the end of the week because I keep screwing up the monthly goals and determined to have some successes and positives. Weekly goals seem much more achievable.

For this week from Friday to next Friday

3 sets of 100 push ups, squats, and leg raises (or better)
4 runs with 2 being 7 miles or better
No binge eating

if I meet these goals I'm buying a gift card to Regis salons. I want my hair done and I figure instead of aiming for a monthly goal of getting my hair done I'd put $25 on a gift card each week I'm successful. At least this way I will eventually get my hair done. I'm also buying myself my darn Supernatural t-shift for February because I want to wear it to the gym.
