May Your Way Kick-Off – The Shrinking Jeans of Mel


May 1, 2011 By Mel

Holy crap! Can you believe it’s May already?!! Is it just me or is this year just FLYING by? The one good thing about it being May already is that it means FitBloggin‘ is literally just around the corner — less than three weeks to go. Woo Hoo!

Another thing that May brings is a new challenge here at The Sisterhood. I don’t know about you, but I can sure use it! I need to good swift kick in the ass to get myself on the right track again. I came to the realization this weekend that it’s been nearly three months since I’ve made any real progress with my weight loss. It started mid-February with some birthday indulgences, followed by spending 6-7 weeks sick with flu & pneumonia, and lastly was just struggling to get myself back on track after I finally got well.

Since this is the May Your Way challenge, everyone gets to come up with their own goals. I’ve decided not to set a specific weight loss goal for this challenge. Instead, I’m just going to focus on healthy habits. I know if I do those things, the weight loss will come. So, here are my goals:

  • Track my food every day whether I stay 100% OP or not.
  • Drink a minimum of 48 oz. of actual water each day.
  • Log 250,000 steps for the month on my pedometer (that’s an average of 8,065 steps per day).

On my first goal, my intent is to stay on program every day. I’m giving myself the caveat about whether I’m OP or not just because I know I have the trip to FitBloggin‘ this month. Even though it’s a health & fitness blogging conference, I also know staying 100% on track can always be a challenge when travel is involved.

So, those are my goals. What are your goals for the month? If you’re interested, there’s still time to sign up for the May Your Way challenge.

Until next time …
