Earlier this week we returned from a 10-day road trip (that I'll be sharing lots more about soon!), which means I need to get back into my exercise routine and refocus on making healthy choices. I took time today to check out the March materials in the FIT 2016 workshop and to catch up on my monthly pages.
I actually created the front of my March page on the first of the month after weighing in, taking my measurements and snapping a photo. (I'm using elements from the class to complete one page per month that I'm adding to my calendar/planner.)
I have to admit that I was disappointed that my weight was the same as my February 1st check-in and my measurements had not changed much either. However, I was not surprised since I did not exercise nearly as much in February nor did I take time to track my eating each day. This month has been similar, so I don't expect to see much change when I look at my numbers again next week.
After listening to Cathy's video message in the classroom today, I took time to journal on the back side of my March page . . . and to go back and do the journaling on my February page (since I had not done that yet!). I also reviewed what I'd written in January. The class materials and the journaling were good reminders that it's not all about the numbers, it's about making good choices that lead to a healthy lifestyle so that I can feel better, have more energy, and enjoy our wonderful life.
I'm feeling good this evening and will be getting an exercise session in on the stationary bike after I publish this post and slip these happy pages into my binder.
How are you doing on your healthy living goals for the year?
