May Goals Recap

Here you can find the goals I made for May.  May certainly flew by as I was consumed with work this month and going through way too many emotions with it.  I finally have a free minute or two to go through my May goals and recap on them!
Thanks for sticking with me guys:)

Goal 1: Get a haircut
Success!!!! It was so nice to get a haircut.  Goodbye dead ends and soft hair!  This makes it so much easier to want to do my hair when it is so soft!

Goal 2: RUn 6 miles
Check!! It was not a full run, but a run walk of 7.5 which I will take.  Marathon training began and I am all over that (after this crazy week).

Goal 3: Loose Weight
Epic Fail!! This afternoon I received the results of my blood test and my thyroid is overactive.  Most people would loose weight because their metabolism is faster but I am known to gain weight because you are also hungrier.  Now that we are trying to work out meds, this should and WILL change!

Goal 4: Tone it up
Not at all :( But I have drank the drinks they recommend

Goal 5: Veganesque
This is simply not for me.  I am so picky that it simply was not possible.  I do plan to incorporate a more vegetarian diet though and try to cut out dairy which I do not normally eat anyway.  

Goal 6: Resume

I am happy with the goals I completed this month.  Now to come up with my goals for next month!!

How did you do on your May goals?  What do you have planned for June?

Going for the Goal: April: Recap

Is it really the end of April?  I can’t believe how fast this month has gone by.
Yesterday, when I was on Twitter, I saw Meghan’s Tweet about the April recap and linking up.  It blew my mind that May was approaching.  
I started my goals a little but late this month, with that being said, I had a bout half a month to complete them.  Now it is time to see how I did.  You can find my post with the goals here.  
Goal 1:  Save Money
Umm yea, I just looked at my bank account and I wonder when is payday and how long ago it was.  This month for some reason was very tight with money.  I did put money away, it is still away but I am scared I will have to use it next month or even at the end of this month as pay day is not till Friday, Rent is due Tuesday, again that slipped my mind and I have a bachelorette party this weekend.
2.Loose Weight
My goal was to loose three pounds and be 131.8, instead i gained a WHOLE lot of weight and when i jumped on the scale this morning I weighed a wooping 144.2.  This is something I am not proud of, and I really need to get this eating under control.  I have my reasons why I think I can’t stop eating, but that I will get to another day. 
3.Do my Hair 1x a week
Yes!! This I have done :)  And it’s getting cut
4. Train
So, I have been training, just not as religiously as I should be.  I have gotten one swim in, a FEW runs, and a spin class.  I just purchased a helmet to take a real bike out on the road.  That is scary.
Now that I have recapped how I did with my goal, it is time to make my May goals.  I started brainstorming today and have them ready, just need to write them up.
How did you do with your April goals?

Go For the Goal: April

Umm..Is it really April?  Where has the time gone?  

I saw that some people and my some, I mean A LOT, of people post monthly goals so I figured maybe I will do the same.  Since it is already the second week of April I am not sure how to the bone they are going to be accomplished.  I am posting these to keep myself accountable.  Feel free to check in on me and ask me how they are coming along.  

Goal 1:  Save Money
I had a goal in mind.  I was going to immediately put $400.00 aside and not touch it until I bought a road bike.  Then life happened and plenty of doctors and student loans need to be paid.  As it is still the beginning of April I am going to try and save $300.00.  I have never actually tried to save money before.  HIDE THE CREDIT CARDS, too bad I know my numbers by heart

2. Loose Weight
I have been sick too much this month already but I would like to loose three pounds this month.  That doesn't really sound too bad.  That would man I need to be 131.8 by the end of the month according to my weight this morning.  That is changing every day though.  And now I have just declared my weight to all my "stalkers".  My goal weight it 122 :)

3.Do my Hair 1x a week
Now that my hair is getting longer and I am lazy, I shower and throw my hair into a braid for the next day.  My goal is to do it at least once a week.  By "do" I only mean blow dry it so I can leave it down.  This should be the easiest of all my goals

4. Train
I keep forgetting that I have signed my Ass up for a triathlon for June.  I do not have a bike, cannot swim more than 25 meters with out stopping and haven't ran more than two miles in 4 months.  That my my goal.  Spin class at least 1x a week until I get a bike, 3.1 mile run at least 1x a week and a 225 swim at last 1x a week...

I think these goals are VERY attainable.  I will let you all know how I do with them.
