April Goals

Upon reviewing my March goals, I found that I didn't complete ANY of them!  Geez, I'm such a slacker.  However, April brings new possibilities, and I'm bound and determined to actually hit my goals for a month.  So here they are:
  • Run 40+ miles.  Since my lofty goal of 60 hasn't happened yet, I'm going to scale down and work my way up.
  • Do 30 Day Shred ten times.  I'm in love with this, but I'd like to have a balance between running and Shredding.
  • Weigh 157 by April 30.  I hate doing weight goals, but I'm so close to this I can taste it!  Right now I'm sitting at 160 (I say that, but my scale almost tells me I'm at 159), so I'll only have to lose 3 pounds in a MONTH--I think that's attainable without being a freak about it.
Besides my monthly goals, I'm also going to do weekly goals on Wednesdays (because that's when I weigh in).  For this week, though, I'm going to do them today.  Here we go:
  • Take my vitamins EVERY DAY!
  • Drink 70+ ounces of water EVERY DAY!
  • Get 14 miles in (through 4/14)!
  • Shred 3 times!
Even though I've been completely slacking on my workouts, I've still been eating pretty good (minus Mini Eggs).  I got some good hiking in this weekend (in the snow), so I've counted that as a mile even though I think it was further.

Tonight I'm planning on running since I'm not going to get to do Jillian tonight.  It's a sin in our house to not watch the final game of March Madness, so my odds of controlling the remote tonight are slim to none.

How are everyone else's goals going?  Are you accomplishing them or is there some slacking going on like me? (don't worry, definitely not judging!)


  1. Great job setting attainable goals!! I have yet to meet my monthly goal for mileage of 100 miles in one month, but I refuse to lower it.:( Have fun on your run!!

  2. Good luck. Way to return even after being a slump.

  3. Caitlin!

    Where are you?? We miss you in bloggy land and over at the Turtles blog!

    Sending you motivation, hugs, big smiles (and a little kick in the butt if you need it!?).... all the way from Orlando, Florida!

    The first step is the toughest - even when you've taken it 15 times. Nice thing about running shoes: they don't judge! Put them on. Lace them up. E-mail me and tell me you're back it.

    Seriously, e-mail me. I'm trying to make up missed miles, too... we can run together. You in??
