Throughout February & March, I kept off the weight I had lost, and did pretty good with staying active (still running 🙌). However, I haven’t been doing too well with my eating. 😁 And I still do have a little bit of weight I’d like to lose, along with getting motivated again to have myself, and my family, eating better. I’m once again doing a no-sugar month – my niece challenged me to join her along with a few others, so I’m back at it! I thought I’d start back again with my weekly check-in’s throughout this month, to help hold me accountable and stay motivated.
Here’s what I’ll be aiming for each week:
- keep running, I do this about 5 times a week now (and again, I might have to change up to some other activity/exercise depending on the weather, because sadly we are still getting snow here!)
- arm workouts, 3 times a week. Yikes, I can’t believe I’m throwing this in here. It’s something I keep wanting to do though and haven’t yet, so I’ll see if this gives me the kick in the butt I need to make this really happen! I just decided while I was typing this post out to throw this in, so I’m not even sure what exactly I’ll be doing for this. If ya have any suggestions – I’d love to hear them! 💪
- no refined sugar – I do eat natural sugar (fruit, honey, maple syrup, etc.). I will admit I’m already planning on cheating though. The boys’ doctor is next to one of my favorite donut shops, and I rarely go there; and of course, it just so happens that Malacai has an appointment this month (in a couple days actually). The last time we were there was during no-sugar January, and I stayed strong and didn’t eat a single bite. So I’ve been looking forward to this appointment for quite some time, and committed to no-sugar April knowing I would be taking this cheat day.
- low carb/low greasy food – because this makes my body feel better and helps with weight loss
So that’s the plan! Anyone want to join in? Bathing suit season is a comin’! 😉 Well, maybe…this snow & freezing cold weather has me thinking it might never happen around here. And April is only 30 days – with no holidays, if that’s any incentive for you! 😉
Here’s to hopefully another successful month! Now I’m off to munch those almonds…
