May 2014 Challenge

Do you make New Year's Resolutions? Some years I do, some years I don't. This year I made it a goal to create and participate in monthly challenges. So far, I have participated in a challenge each month. This month will be no different.

May's Challenge

Weekly Photo Weigh-In's
Post Calories in/Calories out 5/7 days Per Week
Eat Out no more than Once Per Week

I chose to do weekly photo weigh-in's for the month of May because I feel like it has a bigger impact than just writing the number out and moving on in the sentence. Accountability is my friend.

By posting calories in/calories out 5 out of 7 days per week, I keep myself accountable while maintaining realistic expectations. It would be unrealistic to think that I could stay on top of that every day of every week for a month. Life just sometimes happens. It has a funny way of doing that. So, I lowered my expectation to 5 days a week, and I'll see how that goes.

Last month, I made it a goal to eat out no more than once per week, and I did fairly well at sticking to that goal. It's a goal that I'd like to continue working toward this month. Warmer weather = more excuses to be out and about. When we're out and about we tend to want to eat out. I'm hoping this goal will help me stay on track.

What are your goals for May?
