    Exclamation LFL Goals for May

    Were almost into the month of May. Lets set some goals for our LFL program.

    I'd like to do the following:

    - lose 8 lbs
    - increase my walking so that by the end of the month, I'm up to 1.6 miles (each 1/10 of a mile is really hard to get started for me)
    - increase my bike to 10 miles

    - increase my water intake (I'm still struggling with this one)

    - introduce a couple of new veggies into my diet. I seem to always stick with the familiar when it comes to veggies and I'd like to start experimenting with a few new ones this month.


    For the month of April, I met or exceeded all my goals except my water intake.

    Next....

    As I have posted in the past, I need to drink the required 8 glasses of water each day and do my walk away the pounds tape 3 times a week and go to Curves 2 times.

    Sounds simple, huh? I wish it were so!

    But I keep it as my goal, maybe I will actually commit to it and accomplish it.

    I need to increase my water consumption.
    I want to cut back on white flour products and increase the veggies.

    My goals are to walk almost everyday on the track (right across the street from my house *ahem*), starting with a mile.
    DRINK more water and less sweetened tea! These 2 things alone make such a huge difference for me.

    I didn' t stick to my exercise like I'd hoped to this month..but I think I did ok all in all.

    For May my goals are:

    Use lettuce leaves as my bread for sandwhiches. That alone can save me about 110-200 calories for each sandwhich I would have eaten
    I'll try to save my bread for things like grilled cheese, and french toast..stuff that wouldn't work with lettuce

    Jog with ayla when the day's are sunny

    Do yoga or pilates 3 times a week

    Do a Firm sculpting workout 2 times a week

    Do my ab workout at *Least once a week

    increase my water and veggie intake.

    My goals for May are to lose 5 pounds, to be faithful to my eating program (Weight Watcher's), and to exercise at least 5 times a week.

    Ok..............I have been off track lately........I received a great package of information and have been reading, reading, reading and looking things up on the internet, finding what is best for me!! I am going to be following a plan, drinking tons of water (not a problem for me) and the hardest thing...exercise!!! This is the thing that ruins me....I know I have to do it for the meal plan to work but I get off course so easy. I have an exercise bike that I was faithful with the beginning of the year.

    Goals
    ~follow meal plan
    ~drink tons of water!!
    ~lose 10 pounds (if I follow plan it shouldn't be hard )
    ~use exercise bike everyday (finding a good time and schedule it in!!)

    There are others but for this month I think I will concentrate on the above! I must be held accountable...everyone hear that???? LOL!!!

    Ok I have been thinking on this and have come up with the following...
    1) Drink at least 2 qts of water everyday
    2) Continue to walk every day
    3) do WATP tape at least 5 times a week-the 3 mile if at all possible
    And last but certainly not least (and the one I will need ALL your help with...
    4) Quit Smoking


    I feel I am ready to do it and want to in all reality, but I sure do get grouchy-feel sorry for my family!!! ROFL
