It’s getting warmer! You know what that means- Spring is here, and summer speedily cometh! Only 8 weeks left in Shaping Up For Summer, and then the school year will be over, graduation activities will be past, and we’ll all be sleeping in (right, Harrison?).
Last week I weighed in at 165.0, and I was so excited to be a mere 1.2 pounds away from my lowest weight in years. Being at 165, with three months left before our vacation in July, I decided to set a goal which is my 15 Pound Challenge. I want to lose 5 pounds per month, for three months, so that I can go on vacation weighing 150 pounds.
The last time I weighed 150 was a few months after having my first baby, about 5.5 years ago. Before that I never weighed 150 until I got pregnant. To lose 15 more pounds would be a major accomplishment, and I know it would make a HUGE difference in how I look and feel.
Now I just have to do the work! April will be a little tougher, too, because I’m back up a pound or two since hitting 165.
So how to do it? Well I have my gym routine which I should be able to keep up with all month. Plus, now that I no longer have weeknight rehearsals, I have time to go running again! After being away for 2+ hours every night, a 30 minute run won’t seem like much at all! Excited to get out there and get in my 1800 minutes for the #1800MinuteChallenge.
If I count this week, there are basically 5 weeks in April, so here are my goals for those 5 weeks:
- Hit the gym at least twice a week
- Zumba at least once a week
- Run 30+ minutes at least 3 times per week
- Drink 3 water bottles each day
I got in my gym time this week, but I’ll have some catching up to do next week with the other goals!
