May Goals

April showers bring May flowers, right?  My garden is a few weeks behind where it was last year. A cold and rainy April didn’t help that along. I hope May is a little more promising.

Here are the big plans for May! 😀

1. Continue with Female Body Breakthrough and continue my 45-60 minutes a day of exercise.  This is very good for me to keep doing and really is what I should be doing.

2.  Eat with my guidelines of 6 eats per day with protein for all meals and snacks. Something has to give if I keep doing the right things, right? Hello??

3. Make some doctor appointments this month. I am overdue for some appointments, so this will make me accountable to get them scheduled.

4. Clean more windows. Only 14 more to go. Seriously. It’s not that hard. Just need to do it.

5. Participate in Photo a Day. I will be doing this on FB rather than posting them all on the blog since I don’t blog every day, but I will put some on here.

6. Attitude adjustment. I need to work harder on dealing with the Longest House Closing Ever with a better attitude. I think it comes down to control. I am a control freak and not having any control really, really chaps my hide. 

I am going to try to enjoy more things this month, too, and do little projects that I want and stop waiting until we move to do them.

Bring on the May!

    That will be fun to follow your photos. Now I need to remember to check Facebook.

    Control freak here : ) I think I would convince myself to give up on it, and then if it happened, it would be a wonderful surprise. Haha. Easier said than done, I know.

    I’m eating 6 small meal/snacks a day. And you are right. Last year when I was losing, I just kept doing the right thing, and eventually weight started coming off. VERY SLOWLY.

      I hate the slowness of everything right now. Slow weight loss, slow waking spring, slow start to bike season, slow house closing. Can something move along a little speedier??

    Yep – changes WILL start happening, but at our age/height, it seems to take an unfairly long time to see any of them. Keep at it – you know you’re feeling better for this, right?

    I’m glad you’re not waiting to do some projects until the move. I suspect the feeling like your life is on hold is contributing to the frustration (and OH HOW FRUSTRATING IT IS) on the house closing delays. Just call me Dr. Joyce Brothers, YWVM!

      I definitely feel strong, that is for sure, which I love. I sometimes wish the reward was just a little more, you know?

      It takes some planning, but it’s not that hard. It certainly makes you think about what you snack on! I will do a post about it.

    Great goals! I hope your house closing comes through. You have been very patient, but it may be worth waiting for. I wish I could get in the exercise that you do. I think it would speed up my weight loss.

    One of my goals for May is to up my protein. I haven’t been doing so well with protein-y snacks lately.

    The house limbo would drive me bonkers, I’m sure. I can handle what I know about, but not having a concrete, or even general, idea of when the closing might be would be excruciating.

    I always love your goal posts 😀

    Even though it has only had to do with the new furniture, I understand the frustration of waiting and just wanting it to all be over with! Glad to see you’re just going to move along with some things. Hope that closing happens soon.
