peace + love + cupcakes

Tumbling about getting healthy & fit (lost 116 lbs but gained back 50 #sadpanda), learning to love myself and trying to live life to the fullest.

The Cool Kids

At the beginning of the year I set 13 goals that I want to accomplish this year.  This is part of the 13 in 13 challenge I am taking part of.  Here’s an update on some of those goals:

Run 360 miles this year - I ended up running 30 miles this month (29.7 to be exact) which brought me to 25% of my goal which is right where I wanted to be.  


Give up diet soda - 92 days strong. I almost had some diet Coke this past Friday when I went to a baseball game & my mom bought it for me.  I almost drank it because I felt bad that she spent the money but at the same time, I didn’t want it.  That has been the only real temptation the past 3 months.  


Continue with the healthy lifestyle by following Weight Watchers - I’ve tracked off & on for the month of March. I really haven’t made it a priority and last week I renewed (once again) my commitment to tracking - both on MFP & WW.  I did well the first 4 days but it was downhill from there.  Hoping April will be a fresh start and that I will improve this month. 


Participate in 12 races (plus one more for good luck) - I participated in my second race of the year in March - The Biggest Loser 5K.  I’ve also signed up for two more races which will be in June. 

Work on lowering debt  & create a budget - these are the goals I will be working on this month.  Now that I am employed (yay!), I’ve reactivated my Mint account and will be creating a budget that I can follow. I’ve never really had one but since I am not making the same money as I used to I need to make sure that I spend my money wisely especially if I want to reduce my debt.  

March has had it’s ups & downs but getting a job is definitely the most memorable thing that happened.  I didn’t realize how much I like to have a routine and structure and now that I will have it, I hope that it will help me reach my goals for this year.
