some scenes from easter and april goals
We had a quiet and fun Easter. On Saturday we dyed eggs and on Sunday we went down to my parent's house for lunch and an egg hunt. I like simple holidays.
So want to know how I did on my March goals?
:: for the health goal I did really well on walking. I'm loving my hill walks and Saturday hikes! This is a huge win for me because I'm naturally so sedentary. So yay! I plan to keep this up. For the water and oranges--meh. Didn't really do those goals (and instead of losing weight, I gained)!
:: reading. I did read some of my book but I'm only about 20% through. This continues to be a challenging habit to get into (until I find a book that really sucks me in).
:: spending freeze. Win! I didn't buy stuff or online shop until the end of the month when I visited Carrie. Yay!
:: walk. I'm continuing my walking goal and aim to do 3 (uphill) walks per week (or 4 if I can swing it).
:: lose weight. I know I said just last month that I don't want to do hard core dieting, but now I have to. My weight is ridiculous. My aim is to do 1400 calories a day. My hard lines are NO cookies or sweets with the boys in the evenings, and NO going completely off the diet all weekend long. Just those two changes should make a big difference. Will report back at the end of the month.
:: no Diet Coke. For at least two months I'm giving up all Diet Coke and switching to iced tea (unsweetened, obviously) instead. This is hard for me but I hope it will help with my weight loss and cravings.
What are your goals this month?
PS--I've been posting a little bit on my style blog. FaerieMB if you'd like to check it out.
