How is it already March? I know February is a short month, but it in no way feels like it’s March already. I’m definitely ready for spring when it finally decides to arrive though! I’m over the snow and cold. Before I talk about what I want to accomplish in March, let’s look back at February for a minute.
One of my goals for February was to go to bed earlier. I did awesome with that. With the exception of a few date nights, I was in bed with the light off my 10 every night. It makes such a difference in the morning when I make the effort to do that.
I also wanted to stop looking at my phone first thing in the morning. This goal made a huge difference for me this month. I had no idea how much time I was wasting until I stopped wasting it! Seriously, what felt like 5 or 10 minutes were actually more like 20 or 25 minutes. Now that I realize how bad it was, I doubt I’ll go back to doing it. I’d much rather spend that time waking up or putting together a healthy snack or lunch to take to work with me.
The last thing on my list for February was to workout 4 times/week. Unfortunately that didn’t happen. One of my bosses was awesome enough to get me more hours so I can put some extra money into my savings, and because of that it’s tougher to get my workouts in. I know I can do it if I try hard and plan, so I shouldn’t be using work as an excuse.
I thought I’d also share of a few of my favourite posts that I wrote in February. I did a few reviews of DVD’s (Power Yoga and Jillian Michaels Beginner Shred). I’ve been doing Power Yoga on and off for the last 10 years probably. I thought Beginner Shred was an awesome starting point for people new to fitness.
I also wrote a post about the 6 things I wish I knew before going to my first yoga class. I walked into my first yoga class pretty nervous and anxious. Little did I know what an awesome community it would be. In addition I shared my favourite hair products. I have fine hair with little to no volume, so I’m always on the hunt for products that will give my hair some lift.
I really want to get back on track with working out 4 times/week. I’ve decided to start a workout log to keep track of what workouts I’m doing, when I’m doing them, and the progress I’m making. I figure it’ll help me plan out my workouts for the week and keep me from getting bored. I think it’ll also help with motivation if I can look back and see how things have become easier over time.
My eating hasn’t been great the last week or two. I’m going to blame this on working more (excuses, I know), but it’s tough to motivate myself to make something healthy and labour intensive when I’m tired after a long day. I’m going to track what I’m eating on My Fitness Pal 6 days/week. I’ve done it consistently before and it really doesn’t take very long, but it makes such a difference in how I eat if I know I have to be accountable to myself.
Leave me a comment with a goal of yours that you want to accomplish in March.
