My APRIL Goals were:

2) Cycle 20 miles.... Actually Biked 43.85
3) Work out at Curves at least 16 times ... Actually worked out 10 times

May Goals:
1) Walk 30 miles
2) Cycle 30 miles
3) Kettlebell 5 days a week
4) Curves 16 times

Overall, April was a good month. The oral surgery slowed me down but kettlebell caught me up! Seriously, this is one great workout. I am very eager to see my inches lost in May. My goal is to do a kettlebell workout 5 days a week, so we should see inches just melt away, atleast I hope :) (very huge grin)!!!

So, Friday was my son's 14th birthday and some how or another, the celebration lasted all weekend! I must have eaten atleast half of the 1/4 sheet cake (oh my)! I paid for it on Sunday, we went on a 7 mile hike and it was brutal. It's amazing what sugar and fat does to the body. I must admit, in the past, this last weekend would have ruined me, one slip up, one mistake, it would be over. Now the new me, HA, just laughs, I am no where near doneso this journey continues. Yes, I did it, ate almost an entire cake by myself but I am not giving up. Was it compulsive, yes.... was it smart, no.... did it taste good, yes....was it good for me, no.... did it hurt my stomach, yes.... was it the end of my journey, NO!

So the celebration is over and thank goodness the cake is gone, it is time to get back on track. I could spend countless hours or days regretting what happened this weekend, but I will not spend another ounce of energy thinking about it. I will keep moving and keep going. Not only is it a new day, we are walking into a new month! What a perfect time to refocus and regroup. I am ready to push myself a little further and learn something new about me!

Here's to a healthy active May!

You know how snap happy I am, so here are a few pics from Sunday's hike

    I congratulate you for moving forward and re-commiting after eating the cake. I, too, have found myself in the same situation this week with a ouple fast food meals after work instead of healthy meals cooked at home. But I am also not stopping. It was a minor detour for both of us this week; not the end. Great job and I continue to wish you the best!
