Happy Monday!! Last week in Philly was CRAZY busy. My goal was to workout twice while I was there, and I only ran once on Tuesday morning. It was just over 6 miles and felt great, but I literally didn’t have a second after that. Even though I didn’t work out, I was moving so much and walking a ton around the convention center, and I managed to earn between 5 and 6 activity points every day I was there!
Also, today marks the start of the Beth’s Journey Dietbet! I am so excited that I created the game because it made me snap right back into healthy mode when I got back from Philly on Friday night. OK, I didn’t snap out of it until Saturday morning, but still. I was SHOCKED to see how many people signed up for the game! As of this morning, the pot was at $7,725, which means 309 people have signed up already!! And it’s not too late to join if you are interested in participating! Good luck!!!
Soooo the month of February didn’t go as well as I had hoped in terms of my goals, but let’s take a look anyway.
1.) Work up to running 10 miles.
Check! I managed to get one 10 miler in last month. That said, I wish I had gotten more long runs in during the month.
2.) Go on a cash-only spending policy.
Nope. Didn’t even get this one started, but the funny thing is I had a few people in my real life tell me they saw this goal and implemented it for themselves, so it’s not a total loss haha.
3.) Limit meals out to twice a week maximum.
I did OK with this one. Obviously last week in Philly I ate 100% of my meals out, but when I was in DC I did limit eating out quite a bit.
4.) Weigh in at least three Tuesdays this month.
Yup. I weighed in the first three Tuesdays of the month and managed to lose about 3 pounds during the month. That was, before my Philly trip…
5.) Keep up with studying Spanish.
Totally slacked on this one too. I probably used the app I’ve been doing once or twice during the month. Need to re-dedicate myself to this!
6.) Read at least two books.
Nope. I did read Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and watched the movie, and then started the next one in the series but am not quite half way through it.
7.) Keep the TV of at least two nights during the week.
Yes! This one I actually accomplished. I still watched a good amount of TV but I managed to keep the TV off at least two nights during the week for the whole month.
So let’s hope March goes better…
1.) Run a half marathon.
March 16, 2013 – half marathon #6 here I come!
2.) Win the Dietbet
I need to lose everything I gained in Philly and then some to meet the 4%, but I am committed to making this happen. It’s going to be hard because March is such a crazy month for me but I know if I stay focused I can do it.
3.) Keep up with studying Spanish.
Let’s give this one another goal and set a more concrete goal. I am on Day 13 right now of my Spanish app, so my goal is to be through at least day 30 by the end of the month.
4.) Post a meal plan at least twice this month.
I love doing them and people seem to like ‘em, so it’s a win-win.
