I hope that the month of May is off to a great start for you!
With the start of a new month, I use it as an opportunity to reflect on the previous month and set new goals. And I’ve really enjoyed these posts where I can keep myself accountable with my health and fitness goals. Check it out below!
Make it out to an in-person group run.Grade: C. I was hoping that I’d be able to make it for a group run in April with the Trail Sisters, but the timing didn’t work out. However, I did get 3 group runs with my Running Club from work! That was such a great experience to be with my friends again.
Practice 75 minutes of yoga per week. Grade: F. I ended up breaking this goal into an overall 300 minutes of yoga for the month of April, but I fell far short of my goal with 154 total minutes.
Avoid mindless snacking throughout the day.Grade: A. Thankfully, this went really well! My sister and I made an accountability challenge for the last 2 weeks of April, and we committed to daily smoothies plus our own separate goals that we wanted to accomplish. I cooked dinner nearly every night, which meant I had to get my planning in order! The smoothies and dinner planning pretty much eliminated my mindless snacking!
Go to bed at 10 pm each night. Over the past few months, my bedtime has averaged from 11 pm to midnight, and it’s not because of Baby E…I just choose to stay up late! Lately, my body wakes up at 6 am like clockwork, so it’s become clearer that I need to get back to a decent bedtime. How many days can I stay up late watching Frasier reruns? Lol!
Keep up weekly meal planning. Since I tried out several new recipes during my 2-week challenge, now I have a few favorites that I’ll start implementing in my weekly meal planning. I’m so excited to have so much momentum right now, as this has been a struggle for me for so many years!
Practice 15 minutes of yoga daily. I know this has been an ongoing goal…I need it to stick! 15 minutes a day, most likely before bed, seems like the best way to go! I just search for “15 minute yoga” on Youtube and pick what seems interesting!
How would you grade your April fitness and wellness activities? What are you working on for May?
