At the end of January I posted my yearly goals. Let's check-in to see how I have/haven't progressed, shall we? As a reminder I had seven goals for the year:
Goal #1: Lose weight.
As of today, I'm down 10 pounds for the year. Slow and steady wins the race, right? On March 1st we started a biggest loser contest at work and holy cannoli that pushed me into high gear and got me motivated to get moving and eating better. And guess what? It's worked! In week two I was officially the biggest loser and down 4.99% body mass! I started more weight training after that and briefly jumped up in weight. Now, at 5 weeks into the competition I'm sitting in the number two spot with 5.49% body mass lost. I'm hoping to regain my lead by the end of the competition and win the fat cash prize.
Goal #2: Finish my thesis & graduate.
Well, this one has not been as successful thus far this year. In the past couple of weeks research has starting to progress and everything is starting to click a bit more. I still have a long way to go, but the important part is I'm finally able to focus a bit more each day. I think working out and eating well has helped me learn focus, funny how that works out...
