So, I’ve changed things up a little bit. A long time ago I took measurement every week. I was losing weight fast enough that there was a difference from week to week. As I started to slow my rate of loss, I didn’t see that week to week change and just plain got really tired of taking measurements. Then I started slacking off and not really losing weight at all so I flaked on it altogether. I’ve now started taking monthly measurements because it affords me the satisfaction of seeing changes but it also doesn’t annoy me to do it so often. I win.
First, though, let’s talk about my goals for May. I totally forgot to make any for April so clearly I don’t need to go over those.
1. Exercise at least twice a week for the first two weeks and three times a week after that. I’ve been really slacking on exercising so I’m going to try to make it a priority this month.
2. Don’t waste food. So, I’m not so good at planning meals and using all my food properly. This weekend I had to throw away too much. I want to work on being less wasteful and actually using what I buy.
3. 2am bedtime except on weekends. I’m really bad at going to sleep unless I have something for which I have to be up in the morning. I really don’t like sleeping in too much, though, so I’m going to try to continue to make myself go to bed at a reasonable (for me) time.
