I can’t believe its February already! I’m wondering how everyone is doing with their new year’s resolutions now that the first month of the year is over. I’m not usually one to make resolutions but I did write up some goals I had this time around. As I know I’ve mentioned before, last year was a rough one, probably one of the roughest I’ve had, but I’m happy to say that this year has started out on a much better note, thank God :)
Some of my goals were to go back to church: check, maintain a better skin regime for my face & body: check, experiment with makeup: check, drink more water: sort of check, start oil pulling: check, stay on top of my schoolwork: check, take more pictures and blog more: ehh not so much, and most of all I wanted to get back into my normal workout routine. The one I used to have before the hurricane-that-was-last-year hit. I almost don’t regret the exercise hiatus because I really did just have so much on my plate…BUT I sat down and made a realistic plan for days/times I could work out between work and school and have been sticking to it.
As nerdy as it may be, I bought one of those weekly white-boards so I can plan out my week of workouts and also what I need to be doing for school, what assignments are due when & other random to-do’s. Organization for the win! In fact I’ve even been able to squeeze in more workouts than I initially thought I’d be able to manage. Even on rest days I find myself craving some kind of healthy activity, so I’ll go for a rollerblading sesh or something else fun. Priorities I guess! My mantra lately has been: Happy, Healthy & Active!
I feel so much better overall and really missed feeling this fit and confident. I forgot how much that oomph can spill over into other things. I definitely have had more energy at my job, to get schoolwork done and have been going the extra mile now to meal prep and plan for the week in other areas too. My skin feels great and my attitude has been positively affected as well! I’d love to hear what other activities everyone else does to help with their overall health and happiness. I’m a runner and Tone It Up girl myself. The TIU workouts are perfect for me and I love the idea of having a weekly schedule that other girls are following along with too. The sense of community really helps me stay motivated and inspired.
I hope everyone has fun plans for Valentine’s Day xoxo
