April Goals - 2018

Time has a way of sneaking up on me lately. It's already the middle of the first week of April and, I haven't even set out my goals for the month. Well, that's changing right now.

Last month was a mixture of ups and downs. I would be on track, then off, then back on track, then off again. I need to remember, I'm seeking balance in this weight-loss journey. Balance doesn't mean perfection. Balance means balance. A medium of ups and downs. There will be on track days and there will be off track days. I must persist through it all.

In March, I was trying to focus more on my habits than the weight on the scale. However, I did still keep track of my weight-loss progress each week.

3/1/18: 244.9 lbs. 
3/8/18: 241.2 lbs. 
3/15/18: 240.8 lbs. 
3/22/18: 238.6 lbs. 
3/29/18: 240.2 lbs.

In March, I would weigh in on Thursday each week. In April, I am going to do my weekly weigh-in's on Friday.

This month, I am going to focus on the same things I try to focus on every month. Sleep, nutrition, activity and water.

My goal is to be in bed by 9:30 p.m. each work-night. I don't have to go to sleep right away but, I need to be in bed.

My nutrition goal is to track my calorie intake 5 days each week.

My activity goal is to hit 10,000 steps at least 3 times a week or visit the gym 3 times a week.

My water goal is to reach 120 oz. of water 5 times a week.

I hope to keep myself even more accountable with some weekly check-in's this month. Setting goals is only a part of the battle. Now, it's time to work!


  1. Bedtime is so hard when you have kids, at least for me. I'm exhausted and want to go to sleep at 8:30, but I also want some alone time to watch a show or something and unwind from the day which makes my bedtime late...which I regret in the morning

    1. Sara, that's my exact struggle! Some nights staying up is kinda worth it (for sanity) but more often than not, the sleep feels so much better!
