I have been thinking about my May goals for a few days now and I came up with some answers but waited to post them because then it becomes real.
I havent been doing so hot in the eating department and I keep gaining and losing the same 2 lbs. It is very frustrating.
Im nervous about May because we go on our annual family vacation to the Outer Banks with my husbands family. It normally involves full blown breakfast, awesome dinners, nightly desserts, tons of alcohol and minimal workouts. I am not even attempting to plan to be perfect that week - it wont happen so I need to make a plan to atleast get through it without feeling deprived or mad at myself. Im working on that right now.
Running wise I have a 10K on the books, my longest long run will be 12 miles and I will start tapering for a half marathon June 2nd.
As for my May goals -
1. Im backing away from the scale. I weighed myself yesterday (170.5) and I have asked my best friend to take the scale out of my home and hide it in hers until the last week of May.
2. I recently found an awesome blog - RUNSFORCOOKIES.COM - and she didnt binge at all... not once through her entire journey. I have some major eating issues. I do GREAT for 3-4 days and then binge for 3-4 days making me stay the same on the scale. In May I am putting out there the goal for NO binging for the entire month. Does that mean I cant enjoy something I want? Of course not. It means that after I enjoy x, y, or z that I dont then start eating anything and everything I can put in my mouth until I go to bed.
Anyways there you have it - only two goals for May... but they are biggies. Yes I have a workout schedule made up, ideas for foods ect but these two are what Im focusing on.
