Goals - May report

May is done! Let's review the goals:
  1. Lose an average of one pound a week - nope.  Happy Scale says my moving average is down 2.3 pounds over the month - and you can see the graph to the right.  I was on a great trend, and then three days in a row with parties, and it all goes to crap.  Ah well.  Two more this week too.  Ugh.  I am planning to do the detox diet (still not sure exactly which one yet) this coming month though, and hoping to see things getting back on track here.
  2. Work out at least 20 times a month - SMASHED!  I completed 31 workouts this month!  Several days with two workouts (and an unfortunate string of 3 days with none, due to overexertion... ahem).  I also tried a new class - Les Mills GRIT Strength ("LES MILLS GRIT Strength is a 30-minute high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout, designed to improve strength and build lean muscle. This workout uses barbell, weight plate and body weight exercises to blast all major muscle groups.")  This class totally kicked my butt (and I was relieved to see that I wasn't the only one struggling!).  I hope to try it again.
  3. Cook one new (and healthy!) recipe a month - met.  I'm totally blanking on it right now, but I know I made a couple of new things earlier in the month. ;)  I also tried cooking chicken legs for the first time (I know, not the healthiest cut but it was on sale!) and that worked out well.  I am lining up a ton of new recipes to try on the detox diet, so that should work out well for June!
  4. Make an effort to eat clean and healthy the majority of the time - meh.  If I look at things closely, I feel like I did well about 90% of the time.  It's just that other 10% - and unfortunately with the timing of several days in a row with a bad meal, it's tough.  Could've been worse though. ;)
I am down 16 pounds for the year (looking at that moving trend), so though it's slow going... at least it's progress!
