Good morning and happy February!
We’re all a little stir crazy in this house. Snow days and sick days have kept us from getting up and around, and we’ve reached our limit. Hoping to get out today, even if it’s just a walk around the block or a lap around the mall.
What am I hoping to do for the rest of the month?
I took advantage of the $10 down and $10 a month deal at our local Planet Fitness. I was doing pretty well for a while, but I jumped at the chance to blame the weather for my recent lapse in exercising. Josh and I are running with my mom’s team in the Roanoke, VA Color Run in April, and I don’t want to embarrass myself by having to walk the entire thing. I started Couch to 10k in January, and I want to pick back up where I left off. Since I’m still breastfeeding Henry, I’m not able to really diet (gotta keep those calories up, WHAT A BUMMER) – but that’s not an excuse to sit around not doing anything to take care of my body.
I’ve developed a nasty chicken-biscuit-and-a-large-sweet-tea every morning habit, which is terrible for three reasons: the drive through is a waste of time, daily breakfast is sapping all of my monthly “fun money,” and chicken biscuits are not good for me. Like I said, I’ve got to keep my calories up – but I need to adjust my daily breakfast to be more egg whites and yogurts, less butter and fried poultry.
I met up with Josh and some of his work friends at Whole Foods after work yesterday, and we came around to the topic of our writing works in progress. I admitted to them (and now I’m admitting to you) that I’ve had three chapters written for about as many years. Telling the group about my book, the characters, their history – I got excited about my book again. So while I love (and I mean LOVE) my Veronica Mars marathons, I’m hoping to start swapping out that time for writing. I want at least another chapter under my belt by the end of this month.
Are you setting any goals for this month? Link them in the comments and we can hold each other accountable!
