Goals: Month 2

It has been 2 months since I started my blog and set my goals.  Every month, I like to take some time to review my goals and set a new monthly goal.

Unfortunately, I’ve been hurt again and I am unable to workout at this time. I went to a pain specialist who ended up re-injuring the area (L5S1) by placing hard pressure on it. I went to my chiropractor on Friday and today and I feel worse (not because of the chiro). Now I have a tightening on my right buttocks, he said it was the beginning of my hamstring and did some light adjusting.

This is definitely a downer but the good part is that I have found SuperFoods through a book I happened upon at the library The Drop 10 Diet. So while,  I can’t do anything! I can still work on eating the right foods and manage my health goals in that manner for now.

I can do some light walking, I did do a little walking in place today but I began to hurt so I decided to take a break today. (Its been 5 days now and it’s killing me!!)

Now back to the goals!

Last Month’s Goals:
One Month Goal (Apr 10, 2014) while I was pretty close to this goal off by (0.5lb) I think I am doing pretty well at 125.4 today!)
To hit my goal weight 125lbs, get more defined abs/arms and to lose another inch.  Totally hit this goal too! I lost a little over an inch overall.

Six Month Goal (Aug 10, 2014)
To hit my second goal weight 122lbs, maintain my strength training and running 5-6x a week.

My goal for the year from 2/10/14 was for me to maintain my activity level, to be training for my 2nd half marathon and to stay at a healthy weight (120~125lbs).  Now (3/21/14) I’m thinking I want to sign up for a FULL marathon. I’ve heard that the Chicago Full Marathon is a good one for beginners I will be signing up for that lottery today.

My NEW Goals

One Month Goal (May 10, 2014)
To hit a mid goal weight of 123lbs, get more defined abs/arms and to lose another inch (total overall, waist, arms, & legs).

Six Month Goal (Aug 10, 2014)
To hit my new* goal weight 120lbs, maintain my strength training and running 5-6x a week.

My goal for the year from 2/10/14 was for me to maintain my activity level, to be training for my 2nd half marathon and to stay at a healthy weight (120~125lbs).  I had been (3/21/14) thinking about signing up for a FULL marathon.

 I’ve heard that the Chicago Full Marathon is a good one for beginners.So I signed up for the lottery last month and was actually informed TODAY that I was selected (and my boyfriend too) but I am uncertain at this point if I will be able to due to my back injury. It is only 6 months away and that may be TOO close to properly heal and train. My back up plan is to run the Houston Marathon in Jan 2015.

      1. I’m sorry, I should have been more specific. I was referring to the screenshot you posted! I’ve used RunKeeper in the past. I’ll have to look into the other two. Thank you!

      2. The screen shot of the progress is through log MyFitnesspal, I input it daily. Its also good because it gives a caloric burn estimate base on your height/weight.
