How is it already February? It feels like Christmas was just last week. I’m not complaining though – February is one month closer to spring and warmer weather! Let’s see how I did with my goals from January.
My first goal was to workout consistently. I think I accomplished that every week except for the first one of January. To be completely honest, it definitely helped that my class on Wednesdays are spent in the gym and I usually end up leaving sweaty and tired. Having class and a workout in one definitely saves on time and makes it easier to fit it all in every week. My workouts consisted of at home workouts (I even did one on YouTube), barre classes at the gym, mini yoga sessions, and a couple HIIT workouts. Overall I think I had a great variety and I didn’t get bored.
My second goal was to go to bed earlier. While I was able to physically be in bed before 10 most nights, I need to still work on the mental aspect. Quite a few nights I’d be laying in the dark thinking about the stuff that I had to get done the next day or worrying about tests or assignments I had coming up. It kind of defeats the purpose of being in bed early if I’m just going to be worrying about things.
For February I’d like to focus on daily stretching. Tight hips and hamstrings are pretty much a daily occurrence these days, so that’s something that I want to work on. I know it will help with my posture as well as everyday movements, so it will be worth it. I’m committing to at least once (preferably twice a day – morning and night) stretching.
The second thing I’d like to do is meal plan better. Realizing that I don’t have anything to take for lunch the next day ends up with me frantically trying to put something together in the morning, which more often than not ends up being unhealthier than I’d like. If I plan out my dinner the night before to have leftovers for the next day, or make a lunch the night before, I’m much more likely to have something healthy to take with me for lunch.
