End of March Wrap Up Party! / Goals for April

At the beginning of March I set some goals for myself and my weight loss journey. I'm going to examine them today and establish some goals for April.

 March Goals

I am starting the month weighing in at 244.4.  I would like to end it at at least 235.

I think that with my weigh-in tomorrow, I'll be really close, within a couple of pounds.  But I haven't quite made it.  Is this a win or a loss?  I saw it's a toss up, really. On one hand, I didn't make the actual goal, so - loss.  On the other hand, I have been losing well (despite having a 2 pound gain one week), so that's a win.

I will try two new healthy recipes this month.
I did try some EXCELLENT stuffed mushrooms this month that were awesome.  We love to have "snack night" meals and these are a perfect addition.  They're delicious and very calorie friendly, so I can have one or two of the more decadent things and several of the stuffed mushrooms and still feel satisfied and like I participated in "Snack Night."

The other thing I tried (though it's not my recipe) was a Tall Cinnamon Dolce Light Frappuccino at Starbucks.  It's a little slice of heaven and only 3 WW PointsPlus (120 calories).  It. Is. Exquisite.

I will get to the gym 3 days per week.  If I have to skip a day due to an unforeseen circumstance, I will make up the "appointment" and go another day.
I am proud to say I have done this every day and have added in 2 days of yoga at home.

While I am at the gym I will utilize every minute to my advantage.
I can 100% say that I have done this.

I will take time, each day, to set a healthy example for my daughters.  It could me something as simple as reminding them I love them the way they are to having them help me prepare a healthy meal for our family.
This is becoming second nature and it's a really nice thing.

I will drink at least 64 ounces of water per day
I have done this!  Not only that but since starting the #100daychipquest, I have drank 120 oz of water each day for the past 12 days.

Goals For April

  1. Goal weight for the end of April: 229
  2. Drink 120 oz of water daily
  3. 5 workouts per week, no excuses
  4. Blog 6 times per week
  5. Try 2 more healthy recipes this month (I love cooking new things!)
  6. Log 50 miles at the gym this month with a combination of elliptical, treadmill, and bike

What are your goals for April?
