May Progress

I've been feeling pretty good about my May progress.

So far I've been able to do at least 5 workouts each week. I've also been eating pretty clean. I slip up every once in a while, but I haven't done any major damage yet this month. I've been drinking a ton of water and avoiding soda (not an official goal, but always a good thing). And I've even been drinking less alcohol! For some reason, once I start really focusing on my health and my fitness, alcoholic beverages lose a little bit of their appeal.

Today's workout is a 4 mile run. Probably going to do it on the treadmill, because it's hot (again) outside.

I've got dinner plans with friends tonight, and I think I'll volunteer to be the Designated Driver so that I have even more of a reason to avoid alcoholic beverages.

So my planned meals for the day are...
  • Meal 1: Whole grain cereal, rice milk, soy sausage patties, 1/2 banana
  • Meal 2: Green salad with veggies and chickpeas
  • Meal 3: Quinoa pilaf with swiss chard and lentils
  • Meal 4: ??? Dinner out, so maybe veggie sushi
  • Meal 5: Almonds/walnuts
I'll probably be able to stick pretty close to that... though I might deviate a bit, especially around dinner.

You're inspiring me -- so far, I'm inspired to want to try to get back with the program. The next step is trying. :)

Way to stick with your goals! That's awesome. I love reading people just coasting along when things don't go perfectly, too, since they will NEVER just go perfectly for any period of time. :)
