After reading my friend Ashley's blog and evaluating my own success with my April goals, I'm wondering if April is Latin for FAIL?! Haha, I can't say it was a horrible month, we had some good times. Unfortunately we also had some not so good times. And I think both of which are the reason some of my goals were not accomplished. Let's have a look see:

I think that's a pretty good start to May, so here are some hopefully more realistic goals (you'll see a pattern, hehe):
Meet my 10 pound goal...and then some

I hope May turns out to be the fantastic month I expected April to be! The weather is getting nicer and my "diet" is getting easier. Also, my friends and I started a new book/movie club which I think will motivate me a little more for reading. I hope the few of you that actually read this have a happy May!
