As I reflect on the past month, I really am excited about what it did to set me up for success in the many months to come. I wanted to take a look back and see how this month helped me take steps toward the goals I had for this month.
One of my goals for 2013 is to stay below 230 pounds. I started over it, so I knew it would take me a little bit to get below that.
Dec 31: 236.8
Jan 31: 223.2
Down 13 pounds this month - game on!
I have been working out a lot. I've been seeing a trainer about twice a week since December. She's amazing! I've been running a few times a week in the midst of half marathon training, I've been playing volleyball... so much! I've been eating really well. I'm mostly gluten free - focusing on a shift to more protein in my life, and just eating better food. REAL food. And I feel so great!
This post just about sums it up. I am finally starting to listen.
This is something I've wanted to surround myself with for a while, but haven't really done in a long time. Here's a couple things that have come out of me messing around a little bit...
Smile and laugh a lot
The last couple years, this has been the last goal on my list for the year. But I think this is most important. Some of you know, but this winter has been pretty rough on me. Internal reasons, external reasons, physiological reasons. A whole lot of things in my life piling up over the last couple months. But I am stronger than all of it. And I am conquering it all :)
February, you're up!
