Goals - March report

March is done! Let's review the goals:
  1. Lose three pounds each month.
    OK, well, clearly this was yet another fail.  I'm close to having regained all the weight I lost last year (but still down 70 pounds from my highest).  Deeply, deeply frustrating.  April goal: NO MORE GAIN.  This is going to be a huge challenge.
  2. Work out at least 20 days a month.
    Success: 24 days, despite more challenges and repeated fails over the month.  Not that it's helping me lose weight, but maybe helping the weight gain not be as bad?  I don't know.  Very frustrating.
  3. Hit my 10,000 steps a day average over the month.
    Success! 355,393 steps for the month - 11,464 steps average.  You can see in the chart blow, some days were terrible.  But hey, those lowest days were still 5k step days.  Need more above 10k though.  Glad I made it out ahead this month.

  4. Cook one new (and healthy!) recipe a month.
    Failed: yeah, surprise surprise.  Yet another hard month.
  5. Make gratitude a priority.
    Well, I'm still doing my daily gratitude entries, but frankly, some days have been a huge challenge.
I'm really hoping April will be better, but I do have to be realistic - it's going to be hard, with family visiting and staying with us for over a week and several parties and potlucks too.  Aie.  C'mon, I need to get in gear...
