April Fitness Challenge: Startup!

Photo by chrisinplymouth

I'm SO ready for this month of fitness challenges! I hope you'll join me each week in posting your good health goals. Just leave a comment with your goals for the week or post them on your own blog and come back here to let us know. Let's provoke one another to good works . . . in this case, better health!

My goals for this week:

1. Exercise 5 days, including my 3 days at Curves.
2. Drink 6 glasses of water per day.
3. Eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day.
4. No sweets. For me, that means nothing that, if I weren't diabetic, I would be eating or drinking that is sweetened. Coke Zero, for instance. I love Coke Zero. If I were not diabetic, I'd be drinking Cokes. So no diet sodas, no sugar-free pudding, no sugar-free candy this week. 

Do you have any goals you'd like to meet for your health this week? Feel free to share them with us!


  1. Susan, thank you for making this challenge available. I'm glad to have this way to specifically track my fitness goals.

    Here are my fitness goals for this week:
    1)Keep up with FlyLady's Body Clutter Investigator
    2)Drink at least 64 ounces of water per day
    3)Exercise 4 to 5 times.

    Thanks again for the encouragement!

  2. I'm so glad you're joining me, Mrs. T! You have good, attainable goals for this week. I pray the Lord will bless you with success in meeting them!

  3. The first Sunday of the month my daughter and my son-in-law come over for dinner, I always make a dessert to serve after our meal. I remembered your challenge last night and thought that I would take some of the cake to some elderly ladies that I would be visiting tomorrow and leave the rest for my son to eat I woke up this morning and that cake is the first thing I thought about, fortunately the ants got to it before I could and I had to throw it all out. ): The temptation now gone, maybe now I can stick to my fitness goals for the week. I hope!

    My fitness goals for the week:
    Exercise at least 3 to 4 times this week.
    Stay on a healthy well-balanced diet 5 days.
    Drink 3 bottles of water a day.
    Eat something sweet only on the weekend. Sat-Sun

    1. Looks like the Lord took care of that cake temptation for you - He made a way of escape! Great goals you've set - God bless you!

  4. I actually started a new diet last Tuesday, so I decided to join your challenge.

    My Goals:
    1) Eat no more than 1200 calories per day
    2) Exercise 5 days each week
    3) Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water daily
    4) No sugar and very little bread

    Since last Tuesday, I've lost five pounds! Yay! Not going to lose that much every week, but I always lose more when I limit my sugar and bread intake.

    1. Wow, Tammy! Five pounds already - good for you! Thanks for joining in the challenge. Your goals look great! Praying the Lord keeps blessing your efforts!

  5. Hi Susan, I'm just finding your challenge a week later! I'm glad you're doing so well sticking to your goals. I need goals! I think I love Coke Zero too much, too! Another way we're kindred spirits. :)


Thanks for taking a minute to read my ramblings and leave a comment! I appreciate it!
