Goals - April report

April is done! Let's review the goals:
  1. Lose three pounds each month.
    Yep, massive fail again.  The worst part is that I'm about 3 pounds heavier than I was a year ago.  Very disheartening.  
  2. Work out at least 20 days a month.
    Fail: 17 days with official workouts.  I injured both of my ankles at the same time, so I took it easy for awhile (but honestly not as easy I should have).  However, if I were to go back to counting individual workouts instead of days with workouts, I would've met the goal with 21.
  3. Hit my 10,000 steps a day average over the month.
    Success! 313,149 steps for the month - 10,438 steps average.  It was coming down to the end of the month, but with a monster 20k+ day and a few 15k days, it balanced out.  And yes, I was lazy yesterday. ;)

  4. Cook one new (and healthy!) recipe a month.
    Failed: need to put more of a focus on healthy eating this month for sure.
  5. Make gratitude a priority.
    Met, even if some days were a challenge.
OK, well... here's where I try to be all positive and optimistic that this coming month will be the change!  And again, I really do hope that it turns around this month.  For me, I really think it's all about the calories in and less about the calories out, and I need to stop emotionally eating.  I think this month will have less temptations in it, so hopefully next month we'll see some green in that weight chart.
