This morning I slogged through 10 miles. It wasn’t pretty, but I finished. I am ready to revisit some of my health goals to see where I have fallen off track. I was disappointed in my performance this morning.
Let’s get right into it, shall we?
Clean up eating. Nope. Bad. I am pulling out the food diary again to get a grip on this. I have to eat better if I want to perform better. End of story.
Let’s take a look back at a few of this month’s food choices, shall we?
Well, that explains a lot, doesn’t it?
Weight Training Hanging my head in shame on this one as well. Weight sessions in February? Three. That is unacceptable!
Walk Lola I bombed this again. This entire category was a bust. Shame on me. I don’t want to see this happen again in March.
Pinterest List Here is where I got some stuff done this month.
It does feel good that I got all of those things done, but it’s no excuse for slacking off on my other resolutions.
Eat at the table This is still hit and miss, but we are getting better at it. It helps that I have been making some of my awesome freezer meals.
Declutter Calendar Once again, I made it halfway through the month and then forgot about it. Honestly, if only half of my house is decluttered by the end of the year, I will still consider that a win.
Make a budget to find out where my money goes. I am doing really well with this. It has been eye opening, that’s for sure. I went over this month with the extra items for the bathroom re-do, but I am logging every single Panda Express outing.
Pay off Credit Cards Right now, I am making a little more than the minimum payments. I hope to keep whittling down the grocery bill to give me more wiggle room here.
Put Money into Savings account. Not yet, but if I can stop signing up for races, this might happen.
Couponing Still plugging away at this one. It takes a while to get things stockpiled up, but I am trying to remain patient and focused.
Stop using Debit Card. Nope. Fail. I had a few $3 charges this month. I want to get away from those.
Practice more gratitude I think I only sent out one Thank You card this month. At least there was one, but I want to send out more.
Read 20 books This month I read five books which brings my total up to eight. That’s a win!
People over once a month for dinner and games. Fail again! What happened to me this month? At least I did spend a lot of time with SL at the freezer workshops and then the movie marathon. I am not sure when I would have had time to have people over to tell you the truth.
One pair of jeans that are not Mom Jeans. Done, and believe it or not, after the way I ate this month, they still fit!
Go to MNO at least twice a month for homeschool support. Done.
Destination Race I still haven’t decided about this one. I have a few that I am looking at, but I haven’t registered for anything just yet.
Drop Half Marathon time to 2:30 My next half is coming up in March. I’m not sure if this will be my race or not. I’m not feeling great after this morning.
Incorporate more hill and speed work into training. FAIL again. I didn’t run hills at all this month and it showed on my run today.
However, I did get a couple of great things out of this month as far as running. I shaved off 30 seconds from my 5K time and my total mileage this month jumped to 44 after only 29 in January.
Overall, I am kind of disappointed in this month, but I hope that those feelings help me get back on track. I’ll take my wins and celebrate them and make action plans for the goals that I missed. I have 10 more months in 2014, not everything can be accomplished already.
How are you doing on your goals for the year?
Anyone else have a rough February?
