Weekly Goals Link Party 5-6

So this week I wrote my goals on a sticky note and put it on my desk! That definitely helped me stay on track! 

And since we are now out of April, I wanna recap and set my monthly goals too. Yep, I am a goal setting fiend. I really think making goals helps me stay accountable to them. 

My April Goals:

Go to the gym 20 times in April- I think I failed this one. We didn't actually count, and thats probably why…

Complete No Weigh April without cheating- I did it :D I am not sure it was the best idea for my weight loss, but I do think it helped me break my obsessive weighing problem. 

Get 10,000 steps for a whole week straight- I did this one too :D I love by Bodybugg and it helped me track this goal :D

Run for 3 minutes straight- lol I nailed this one :D This is the goal I was working on when I ran a mile for the first time in my whole life :D

Try 3 new recipes and blog about them- Ok this one was a fail. I have no clue why it is so hard for me to blog about recipes! I took pictures and everything…. must.write.one.this.month

Not bad on April. I met some really great goals, but I failed a couple too. I want to strive for 100% in May. 

My May Goals:

Go to the gym 20 times. This is definitely do-able if we just try. 

Weigh in only once a week. I got my scale back, I can do this!

Run an outside mile

Do another 5K

Buy a bikini… I need to remember my goal to get in that thing this year. 

I will be tracking these goals in my "Goals" tab :D

Now lets recap last week's goals!

1. Makeover my refrigerator- Nailed this one :D I didn't take any pictures, but we cleaned it out, and repackaged everything :D It has been great so far. 

2. Do core everyday- I missed two days on this, but it was a good goal for me to do, and I wanna do something like this every week in the future. 

3. Pack good snacks- Thanks to my fridge makeover, I had ziplock bags of great snacks and I snacked like a rock star this week :D

This week for the 10 week challenge, the mini challenge is to find your inspiration. I have tried to lose weight for a friend, for a wedding dress, and for a blog. This is the first time I am losing for the right reason, and that is my inspiration :D I'll be sharing all about it on Tuesday.

I did pretty well with the core challenge, so this week my goal is to do squats every day. I know a bunch of people who are doing a squat challenge in May, but that has you doing squats in the hundreds, and aint nobody got time for that :D So I am doing my own challenge. 

I did really well with this by packing good snacks last week, but this week I am going to actually count my fruits and veggies. This is definitely something I struggle with, so I am gonna work on it this week.

  1. I love your goals for this month. I've only been following your blog for a couple of weeks and you've already inspired me to set my goals big. Thank you for being you!

  2. Just a suggestion for a squat challenge I found on another blog/instagram and I did it for 2 weeks and plan to start again... Do 10 squats everytime you use the restroom!!! I upped it to 20 squats but I only do them while at work-- I can usually get in at least 100 a day! :)

  3. The squat challenge is no joke! Today's number for me is 75. I've been walking around looking like I have a cob stuck. But, I'm gonna stick with it. And if I don't have a smoking backside at the end of the month I'll probably kill someone!

  4. What core are you doing???

  5. These are great goals! I do non weight bearing squats every day. I started out doing like 20 or so when I brush my teeth and I increase it all the time. However one can only brush her teeth for so long so I now do them when I brush my teeth and each time I go to the bathroom I also do 10-20. Since I drink so much water I can get in a ton of squats every day!

  6. I love your goals - particularly "Find Your Inspiration". That is HUGE for me. I've always felt like I was losing weight for someone else or something else. Now, I've finally decided that I want to lose weight for ME. Good luck! I love your blog!
