For anyone new to Blonde on a Budget, #pfworkout is a hashtag personal finance bloggers use on Twitter to share exercise, weight loss and healthy living accomplishments. Each month, I set personal goals and post updates on my progress.
Last month, I decided to stop making excuses and start taking control of my physical health and happiness. I lost 8 lbs. and 4.5 inches in March. April on the other hand… well, there were a few excuses in April.
Housesitting was the first excuse I used. It was a fairly valid one, at least during the work week. But then most weekends I ended up only working out once, other than walking the dog. I also gave in to a lot of food cravings, this month. There’s no excuse for that one but the one good thing about eating bad food is that, after a month of eating so well, I was able to see how certain foods really affect me.
Nevertheless, I didn’t lose much weight this month…
This month, I:
- worked out on 13 of 30 days (including today)
- ate an average of 1676.5 calories each day (tracked on LoseIt!)
- lost 2.2 lbs.
- lost 3.5″
Adding last month’s numbers, I’m down 10.2 lbs. and 8 inches. I’m a little bummed about April’s progress but am using that as motivation for May. And at least those 13 workouts put $65 in my future clothing shopping spree account!
