April Goals

It's time to look ahead & set new, fresh goals for April. Here's what I'm planning on doing:

  1. Lose 3 lbs. 
  2. Track my calories every day using MyFitnessPal
  3. No dessert at work! For the entire month!
  4. Complete 1,000 minutes of cardio.
  5. Complete 8 strength workouts.
  6. Complete 8 stretching workouts. I'm good at getting in one workout a week (on Sundays). I need to also do one evening per week.
  7. Register for a half marathon, or a 15K. Start training.
  8. Better manage my work schedule - take more breaks, work out regularly, and block out time on the calendar.
  9. Have one date night with M (should be easy - we're doing a long weekend together).
  10. Do one social activity.
  11. Find a running club.
  12. Finalize tax payment plan.
  13. Stick to our budget.
  14. Continue exploring next career options.
  15. Make a list/plan for my trip to the beach over Memorial Day of what I want to accomplish/get rid of. It's a fun girls trip, but I plan to take full advantage of being there to go through our stuff. Minimize the pain when we actually sell. ;-) 

I think that will work. What are you planning to accomplish in April? 


  1. You had me double check Memorial Day's date! Still in a heavy jacket today! I should go do some lists as well... but I'm hiding behind the pretense I'll be feeling ill or not 100% after my wisdom teeth surgery mid month to declare it a "free for all". I need to call the dentist and finalize payment amounts (seriously, it's been over 2 months and they haven't called back!!) and purge my winter gears... I used very few items, so those that went unused get donated, ditto for warm weather clothes; whatever I didn't use last season, is going! Need some major purging.

  2. You have me seriously freaking out here!
    April goals??......I am still working on Jan, Feb and March goals. lolz

    The sun is out here after 4 more inches of "that stuff that shall not be named" and I am doing some major paperwork. At least that will be off my plate for April. ;-)

  3. Did you belong to a running club in Seattle? If I could get my self back in shape, I think I would enjoy it ... I always liked running with other people.

    Anyway, good luck with your April goals! :)

  4. I like the idea of a running club. It would keep me inspired and accountable.

    No dessert? Ouch.
