I cannot believe it’s May! Do I say that every month? Haha! Time flies doesn’t it?
Last month I had gotten my blood work results back and it said I was low on B12 and iron. I said I’d try to get those up so how’d I do? I’m not sure! I haven’t gotten to the doctor but I’ve been eating an iron pill a day and 2 B12 (low dose) pills. I have become less sluggish so I think I’m on the right track!
I also mentioned my weight last month… that was a little tricky. With my exams, I actually gained 5lbs! I was horrified when I stepped on the scale! Two weeks of take out does that to you… However, I did end up losing the 5lbs so I’m back to 135lbs so does that count as weight loss? I think so 😉 Also, I’m happy to say that my junk food intake has decreased! I mean, I did eat some but a lot less than the months before!
I plan on continuing to try and lose weight. In the past, my relationship with weight loss has been … very unpleasant – I obsessively tracked my calories, dropped weight extremely quickly, broke down a lot, etc. So I’m/I’ve been taking a different approach. I don’t track/haven’t tracked my calories intake. My plan in to just continue to replace my junk food snacking with fruits and try to decrease the amount of take out that I eat by cooking my own meals.
In addition, I plan on increasing my mileage (slowly!!) this month. My shins were in pretty bad shape last month but I upped my strengthening and hit the trails instead of pavement and they’ve been feeling pretty good. I’m hoping to spend extra time in the trails in order to be able to run more without my shins hurting.
Finally, my last goal is to continue strengthening! Gotta make sure I get to the start line injury free!
So what are your goals this month?
