I weighed in this morning at 231, which is the same weight I've been flip-flopping around for the last 10 months.
I want to make 3 important goals this coming month.
1. Water. I have been doing much, much better on this front so I want to keep this up and try to hit my 100oz each day.
2. Diet. FINALLY we were able to just this past week finally make the kitchen livable enough and actually meal plan a bit. We also made a little experiment to help with our snacking, especially on the weekends. Chris found a recipe for Buffalo Cauliflower and it actually turned out pretty good! I've never been a huge cauliflower lover but this may be a good start to me liking it. I definitely prefer it baked rather than raw. We will see how this experiment goes. We are giving Kale a shot next.
So the plan is to continue meal planning and making smart decisions. Along these lines, I will start logging faithfully. I need to log and be honest about it in My Fitness Pal. (By the way, thank you all who suggested about the app running and the fitbit checking in with My Fitness Pal - mystery solved as to why my MFP app was continuing to "log" me in each day).
3. Exercise. May has absolutely been a more active month for me than prior months and I want to build on that. I'm not going to say that I'm going to work out 6 out of 7 days but I'm going to give myself a fairly easy goal here. The idea is to not go all balls to the wall right out of the gate. But I am going to aim for 1000 exercise minutes in June. That number was fairly attainable for me in the past and of course, I'd love to surpass it but for now, making it a nice start to build from.
Our facebook group is starting a few challenges coming up too, one for weight loss and the other is a mileage challenge. We are just now trying to iron out the details but we may do something like a Walk (or bike, run, swim, elliptical) to Mordor Challenge, similar to this one! This will definitely help to want to get those steps in each day and we will likely start tomorrow!
We had our first Mixed Doubles tennis match of the season last night. It had rained all day long so it was touch and go as to if we were going to be able to get the match in, but finally the clouds lifted for a bit and we got to play. We lost though. That team was really, really good. But I'm proud of how me and my partner played. He had not played any regular tennis for like 14 years and this was our first time partnering together. We ended up losing 3-6; 2-6 which isn't horrible. At least it wasn't a blowout.
We celebrated my daughter's 23rd birthday and my parents vow renewal last weekend! It all turned out nice!

Well that's about it going on my world! Hope everyone has a great week and a great start to June!
