Before I get onto my goals for March, I want to recap my February goals.
My number one goal for February is to make exercise a daily habit. I did really good here, up until the pelvic pain became so unbearable I ended up making a trip to my chiropractor. I’d say the first 18 days were a success. Either I used my treadmill or walked with my Leslie video, and took four rest days here and there. After the visit to my chiropractor, I took a few more rest days and then tried again on my treadmill, only to have to pain come back almost instantly. Out of the 28 days in February, I worked out 14, so half.
My number two goal for February is to continue drinking 8-10 cups of water (64-80 oz). I wasn’t very faithful in logging my daily water intake. However, I do know that most days I got my minimum of 8 cups. This is still something I struggle with, so most days to get my water in, I have to flavor it with Crystal Light.
My number three goal for February is to not eat after 8 p.m. February trucked right along for me and I was feeling so awesome for doing so good not eating after 8. Mr. Chaotic was so disappointed that I wouldn’t snack with him. Then I’m not sure what happened. My emotions get the best of me, Aunt Flo visits, and it’s like I just can’t get enough. I truly need to get better control of my emotions as that would help tremendously in the mindless snacking department.
Overall, I felt like February was a success for me. I could have made some better choices after 8 (like saying no to the pretzels that Mr. Chaotic was eating), but it is what it is. I do know that once I get this pelvic pain figured out & taken care of I might actually be able to put my mind to this once & for all! I was very surprised to learn that at the end of the month, I had lost 6.5 pounds!
Moving onto my March goals – basically, I’m going to keep them the same, except the walking everyday part. With the pelvic pain I just am not able to make the commitment. I will still try my damnedest to get my eating back on track and to drink my water daily. I’m also going to be making frequent trips to the chiropractor to get this pain taken care of. As for the weight, well, my goal for March is to at least maintain my loss so far! Carry on!
