We have missed you! The arrival of above freezing temperatures happens to coincide perfectly with my newly refreshed and enthusiastic approach towards a healthy lifestyle! I finally have a workout schedule figured out, went running outside, and have accepted the fact that I will be participating in a modified race schedule this year. Meal planning is working well and I am adding in more protein and greens which has me craving way less junk. Things are looking BRIGHT!
Since I was so late on my February/March goals, I figured I could get started on the April goals a wee bit early!
March was a great month!
It started with snow and birthday celebrations…
And ended with rain (read melted snow) and an awesome weekend catching up with friends (and finally watching frozen)!
I made some awesome meals! Mostly in the crockpot, but still, there were some non crockpot highlights…
And let’s not forget that we can’t have a March without Irish Soda Bread and St. Patrick’s Day Shenanigans!
Of course, Cooper was adorable and he continues to grow as he nears his 1st birthday. He also continues to love the dishwasher, bath tub, and sink, where I caught him hiding one night this past week. He thinks if he ducks down low, I won’t find him : )
I have finally gotten my workout schedule organized and made time for a spin class, yoga seminar, and tennis. Needless to say, I am counting down the days until warm enough weather to bust out my bike.
I am ending the month feel strong, energized, and focused on what lies ahead!
1. Decrease Sugar Intake
-This had been up and down, but the past 2 weeks I have definitely gotten my sugar consumption in check and am feeling really good and energized.
2. Build Strength
–My muscle mass has increased (according to my trainer), so I am definitely on my way!
3. Play Tennis
-The BOY and I have been playing at least once a week. I think we are getting better and are at least at a place where we can play a match and have fun with it. Although my serve has a long way to go…
4. Sign up for Races
–So after much thought and research, I have decided to wait until the fall for races. The main reason is that this spring is very busy and I will not have the time to train that I need.
1. Strength Train 2xweek
2. Do Yoga 1xweek (and do a workshop)
3. Unplug and Unwind
4. Drink More Water and Eat More Greens
5. Cook from your Cookbooks!
What are you most looking forward to this spring?
What are you April goals?
