So I did really, really well with my February goals. I tracked every.single.day. I messed up tracking a little during vacation – I tracked one meal on the wrong day which threw off several days. I know there were things I missed in my efforts to correct, but all in all, I tracked daily. I also did pretty good with vacation workouts – hotel gym, two different hikes, and a quick yoga sesh where my three formal workouts. I went out up eat a little more than I would have liked, but I also said no on a few occasions. Overall, February was an epic win in my book. I planned on going to buy my cycling shoes over the weekend but kind of forgot. I’m thinking I’m going to go Tuesday.
On to March… There are 5 goals, but really they’re all kind of sub-goals of #1.
1. Win my DietBet. I was so motivated by my first DietBet, I signed up for another one. This one was set up by Beth of Beth’s Journey. Hopefully I can exceed my weight loss goal again! (If you’re interested it just started today so you can still join!)
2. Sunday night/ weekend plan and prep. For the latter half of January and most of February, I was really, really good about meal planning and prepping on the weekend. We meal planned, grocery shopped, I prepped breakfasts and lunches for Nik and I. I even did some cleaning and laundry. (This is all part if my larger effort to grow up this year.) This last weekend – not so much. I still meal planned and grocery shopped, but that’s the extent of it. I definitely feel less organized and ready to tackle the
world week as a result. I want to get back on track with/ really get into the habit of my prepping on the weekends because I think it keeps me in a really good place overall.
3. Track. This is really more of a sub-goal to #1. I was on an epic 2 month tracking streak that I kind of fell off of this past week/ weekend. Tracking is (and always has been) my primary key to success. If I want to win my DietBet, I have to track.
4. Yoga. In January, I participated in the YogaDownload 21 day yoga challenge. I didn’t practice every day, but I was on the mat more days than I wasn’t. As time has passed, I’ve been doing less and less yoga. I really like the way I feel when I have a regular yoga practice, and I want to get back to that. Daily probably isn’t realistic, but if I could managed 4 or 5 days a week, I’d be a happy camper.
5. Get back into a proper training schedule. Remember my 20k training plan? Me either because I’ve basically ignored it since posting it. Yeah. I’m going to blame it on the weather (which has been legitimately crappy) but really the problem is laziness and lack of commitment. However, I just signed up for the Chicago Women’s Half Marathon with my friend Jen do now that I have two long ass races on the books, it’s time to get my act together. Jen and I are planning to do the training together so hopefully that will keep me on track.
