I can’t believe it’s already March – where is this year going so quickly?
Here is my Project Me backlog for February…
Join gym with Mick – helps both of us get and stay healthier
Work out at gym four times a week for 30-45 minutes each visit – nothing too strenuous or involved, just get in there and move; exercise is very good at helping to lower my blood sugar
No snacking on junk in the afternoons at work – purchase fruit and veggies, have them prepared and ready, and eat as many of them as I like but NO junk (vending machine munchies, trail mix that a co-worker made at home and brought in, Girl Scout cooking)
Eat a breakfast with healthy protein – my current obsession is a breakfast sandwich with one egg poached hard, lean ham or turkey, a slice of cheese, and a slice of whole grain bread – and skip the pastries when I get my nonfat latte in the morning
Apply my anti-wrinkle eye and face treatments every night before bed after washing my face – this one goes to my fourth long-term goal to improve my quality of life: I’m tired of looking at my sad, tired, wrinkled face every day and there are things that can be done to make the wrinkles go away if only I’ll actually take the five minutes to do them consistently!
Gym joined and being used regularly. Since February 17th when I bought my Fitbit, I’ve worked out all but two days – not bad!
I started out walking for 30 minutes at a time and now I’m at 45 minutes each session – my goal – and increasing intensity by 10% per week.
No afternoon snacks except for fresh fruit or veggies since February 1st. Lord knows I’ve dealt with some powerful urges to binge eat junk but I’ve tuned in and acknowledged the feelings instead of eating them away and it’s working so far.
My standard breakfast is two hard boiled eggs and a cup of nonfat Greek yogurt with fruit. Most mornings I also stop off for a nonfat, no sugar added mocha, too, but not always.
Have definitely remembered to use my anti-wrinkle night treatments most nights. Not sure I see a difference in the really deep wrinkles in between my brows and around my mouth yet but the rest of my face and the fine lines are definitely improved plus my skin is much softer, so a win any way you measure it.
Still thinking about goals for March but they’ll definitely be along the same lines as February’s. must check in on my 2013 big goals, too, to make sure I’m still on track to meet those, too.
Any health and fitness related goals for you this month? Share, please!
