Health and Fitness Goals for April

Monday, April 02, 2018

I need to stop setting these goals at the start of the month and then forgetting them entirely until the end.

That should tell about how well this check-in is going to go *lol*

Last month's goals:
* Look up stretches and treatments for my heel problems and then actually do what's required.
* Track carbs, with an eye to reduction, but just get a baseline to start.
* Meditate at least 5 minutes a day.

Actually, I didn't do too bad.

I looked up the stretches and started doing some of them toward the end of the month. I'm not consistent at it yet, but it's more than nothing.

I tracked carbs for a while, until I finally admitted my answer was "a lot" and that I need a replacement plan if I'm going to cut them out again. Still thinking about that one, since I tend to stumble over the whole "cook for yourself" part that's required.

Meditation was touch and go, but I think I made it about half the month, so not terrible.

This month is oddly busy, so I have goals in other areas that are going to take most of my time and energy. That means I want to keep these ones simple.

So, a bit more of the same, really:
* Meditate at least 5 minutes a day.
* Do heel stretches.
* Try and solve my workout dilemma.

The dilemma being what to do and when while I'm taking a break from running and walking.

I think that's enough for now.

    Do you want an app for that meditation thing? I like "Insight Timer". Simple and free, but it has a timer with a nice bell, will track streaks for you, and it has lots of guided / ambient meditations that you can explore if you like. (Including very short ones.)

    Can't help you with the carbs. I'm too addicted myself.

    You've got this! I know you'll get it all figured out. Don't stress it and just add as you can, especially with your heal still hurting.

    I am the same. Wish there’s a magic.
