Goals for May

I meant to post this yesterday, but had some kind of bug and couldn't think straight.  Today seems to be better after lounging on the couch most of the evening.

This month seems to be the month that alot of bloggers are setting goals, making lists ... and I'm jumping on the bandwagon.  I'm in need of a serious turn-around.

In May I'm aiming to:

RUN - 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10 mile runs. 
BIKE - to work at least 4 times, to the Ft at least once
EAT - salad x 4, salmon, fruit salad, vegetarian for a day, carb-free for a day, try a new recipe (not baked goods)

While this isn't really a huge challenge, it gives me some realistic goals to work towards.  And it will be a huge improvement over how the last couple months have gone.
So far I have:

♥ Run 4 miles
♥ Bike to work - once

YIPPEE! I'm really looking forward to doing more biking again.  Gas is getting way too expensive as well, so not only will I be burning calories, but I'll be saving money!

My son is taking his driving test today.  He's a pretty good driver and I have full confidence in his abilities, but with the way they test now, it takes VERY little to fail.  Plus he's doing it in a neighbouring town that's he's not very familiar with AND driving a standard.  Hopefully his nerves don't get the best of him.  Keep your fingers crossed for him.

Keep Active!

Guess you will be biking even more if he gets his license :) which I'm sure he will.

I like your goals, especially in the eating department. I still do have goals but only one with a number and that's my monthly mileage goal. Other than that I try to do the best I can this month.

Good luck, I'm convinced you can do this.

Oops forget: wanted to say gas is indeed really expensive but biking to work is not an option for me as I have to drop off Bella on the way to work and it's 45 minutes to get there so on running days I will be in way too late.

coming back to read....as busy getting iPad set up.

Yes that is the neighbor I trained after she had a baby.....
My nails are my own, with a little gel overlay to keep them strong as my normal nails break very easily.

Here's to a great May my friend, love your goals!

I like the way you chose your goals - so much more interesting and attainable than just running X amount for example. Good luck!

Yay for biking to work! I put that on my may goals too! There really is no excuse for me since I live 2.5 miles from work and have a lovely greenbelt almost the whole way. Now that the weather is nicer, I'm really looking forward to it! Good luck!!
