So it’s April – and March did not turn out like I thought it would. I thought my mind would get itself back in control, my eating would get back on track, I would make it to the gym as often as I wanted to … didn’t happen. What did happen is that I needed to work on my inner self-talk. Which has always been issue, and is for everyone, but sometimes that voice just gets you right where it counts and not in a good way. I’ve also set myself an April resolution because I am just not doing well without a true goal. Purposeless does not sit well with me – even if the purpose is just doing some type of workout every day! So here is this months New Year, New Resolutions – April 2016.

Best You Can DoIt seems like all my motivation and ambition has gone out the window after the half marathon. I don’t know if it’s because I had just put so much pressure for so long on myself, but I haven’t had much willpower to cook, eat healthy, workout enough, or think positively. Or be so strict eating-wise. I wanted to give myself a short break after the half to really enjoy eating again and since the blood work came back saying I needed to add so many foods/nutrients back in my brain took that as – Let Food Back In! Well, it’s time to reign it all back in because all that nonsense food needs to leave. I can’t take feeling out of control – and yes, I am a HUGE control freak. No surprise to me, but may be to some. The positive from the month though (see? I’m trying for positive!) is that even though my weight has gone up and down 3 pounds (may not seem like much to some, but that is up 5-8 from marathon day) I feel so much stronger. The workouts I’ve been getting in are more strength-based than cardio, Outlookwhich I’m loving, so my legs feel amazing and my biceps look great. My only complaint is that I feel so worn out from work that I don’t feel like going after work – but when I get to the gym, oh man do I push myself. And I love that.

So my April Resolution? Do some type of workout every day. Even if I don’t feel like it and just can’t see myself going to the gym after work – this usually happens on a Tuesday for some reason – I have to do something at home for a minimum of 15 minutes. It may not seem like a lot of time, especially since I spend an hour at the gym, but it’s more about 1. making me just move instead of laying around and snacking for no reason, and 2. making me feel better about myself for not having the willpower to go to the gym. Self-talk gets me every time I crap out on the gym, even if the reason is because my muscles are so sore from a hard two hour workout the day before. That voice? Can be evil.

Now for the important stuff:
