Default May Goals!

Hi all... I thought a May Goals thread might be a good idea. I am pumped for summer and finally eating well and excercising consistently so I think the cute summer clothes are in the near future!

My goals for May are:
1) Contiue eating vegan plant-based diet
2) Run 4 days a week and increase long runs to 10km
3) Include more strength training into exercise routine
4) Lose 8 pounds

Yup, it's that time again to carve out some short term goals! For May I want to be doing some form of cardio 5 days a week and weight lifting 3 days a week. I also want to cut down on my portions, focus on whole foods and eat no more than twice during the month at a fast food restaurant. Oh yeah....and I want to lose 8 lbs too!

Short term goals make me feel like I'm accomplishing something. .haha so here mine are.
1. Be running at least 3 miles 4 days a week (by the end of the month get my stamina up to that.. lol)
2. To be down a size in clothes.
3. Lose an inch off my body totally.
4. Start to run outside more often and not on the treadmill so much..

Here are mine!

- Lose 6 pounds
- Do some sort of exercise 6 days of the week
- Get in at least 100 ounces of water, daily
- No white carbs for May! Only whole grains. *

* I've always eaten whole grain bread, not an issue. Always have 'white' pasta and rice, however, so I'm going to attempt the switch-overs there.

My goals:

-Only take 4 rest days throughout the month (I find when I rest for a day it's soo hard to get back on track).
-60-100 minutes of cardio each day
-Lose 5-8lb (would LOVE to be 134lb as that would be my lowest weight in..about 6-7 years!)
-Get down to a size 5 (currently a size 7)
-Don't lose focus on eating.. I think this is the reason I am gaining weight. I wanted to try a low carb diet as it seems to work with dropping weight, however as a Vegetarian, I get a lot of my calories from carbs (good carbs like fruits and veggies and whole grains though).

-Exercise at least 4 days a week (even if it's a 20 minute walk around the block!)
-Be able to wear clothes I'd never dreamed about wearing before (bikini, here I come!)
-Finish training to become a WW receptionist and then eventually Leader!
-Incorporate more vegetables into recipes---AND get my family to try some new healthy recipes!
-Try to control my sweet tooth and not eat so many points in sweets per day!
-Feel GOOD about myself and comfortable in my skin!
