Can we just discuss that April is nearly over and holy hell, how did that happen?
My goal was to exercise every day in April, which I did. Having a treadmill at home helps a lot, but it’s also making me a bit lazy, since I just walk on it for 45-minutes. Having the gym membership hasn’t worked out as well as I had hoped – the gym is too far away to really be useful, but it is frankly, good to know that I will not go to the gym much, even if it is only a 15 minute drive. This will be very helpful for when I have a real salary and look for a gym or fitness center.
I’m really happy that I picked this goal, because I had stopped exercising in the morning, and this goal forced me to actually do something, anything, in the morning, to get the exercise out of the way so I wasn’t stuck doing pushups at 11pm. It forced me to get up early on a day where I volunteered at two separate events that went all day and squeeze in my workout.
I still haven’t really lost any weight, but I have maintained my weight, which is great, and now that I’m back in a workout routine, I’m going to keep it up and then go back to tracking what I’m eating and making sure I’m making healthy food choices. I might even stop eating Easter candy, but no promises.
How did everybody else do?
