Healthy You Check In


So what do you think? Can YOU see a difference?

For some reason this morning, I am very excited about spring. It's not even that it was so warm outside this morning, but the sun was shining and it just made me happy. The only thing is I have the nagging reminder that March 20 - the first day of spring - would also be my 8th anniversary. I guess technically it still is because we aren't divorced yet? But the upside to that is that I am probably the healthiest I've been since I got married both physically and emotionally. I feel like I'm climbing out of the dark hole I fell into on March 20, 2000 and I'm peeking out into the bright sunlight and it feels great!

Anyways, even though I didn't lose anything this week, I'm okay with that. My physical endurance has improved in leaps and bounds and that is just as important.

These are the goals I set out to achieve at the beginning of this month:
  • Hit my 10% goal by March 15 (4 lbs to go!!) Didn't happen but I'm sure it will this week
  • Get in 3 C25K workouts each week Didn't quite happen last week.. I tried! K wouldn't have nothing to do with babysitting at the Y and they came and got me = end of workout
  • Do 1000 minutes of cardio in the month of March Well, I'm halfway as of today!
