The shortest month of the year has come to an end. And boy did we get dumped on here in Chicago. Even with the 30 degree weather this past week, the liquid winter just kept on coming!
Tuesday, my office closed early. What was amazing is that the roads were empty (everyone else’s office closed earlier), so I made it to my parents in record time to enjoy a quiet evening at home. The past few days have been pure slush and finally today the sun is shining!
February was an active and exciting month (snowshoeing?!) that left me feeling fairly run down by the end. Thankfully, there have been more than enough healthy and warm breakfast options to get me going in the mornings.
I have been training for my first race of the year (an 8k in April), running outside as well as around the indoor track. We had a nice break from the cold spending a gorgeous weekend in Sarasota, Florida. And the BOY and I are planning for another beach vacation soon!
Here’s to hoping that March goes out like a lamb and spring is right around the corner because I am ready for the sunshine, flowers, and farmer’s markets! Don’t you agree?
How are you feeling this month?
What are you hoping to do this March?
Sign up for the Chicago Marathon
-By some miracle, I made it and I’m in!
Try some classes (ie Bikram yoga)
-I still haven’t made it to Bikram or Barre which is a major fail on my part!
Avoid added sugars, fake sugars, and high fructose corn sugar
-So for the most part, I did great with this. However Valentine’s Day was full of sweets and I had a rough week following that. Luckily, I’ve been able to get back to my clean eating habits.
Maintain work/life balance
-I don’t even know if I should go here…this topic deserves its own post for sure, but I will save that for another day. Instead, I will share the things I did to move towards balance, like weekly yoga, girl’s dinners, and quiet weekend mornings.
-Try some new classes
-No added sugar
-Unplug more often
