*ETA* Well in the year since turning off word verification, I haven't had to deal with spam except the occasional piece that showed up in my comment moderation section.
But I have noticed the last few days that it is slipping into my comments here again. I have had three spam comments already just this morning. So I am going to temporarily turn on word verification for a little while. Sorry. I am not a big fan of it, but find spam more annoying. Thanks!
So far I have focused on cutting out fast food, exercising and getting more sleep, and drinking more water and giving up soda. Those were my goals for January, February and March.
Fast Food - since January 1st, I have eaten fast food twice. Once a salad at McDonald's when we went out with friends and a roast beef sandwich from Arby's when I was running errands all day two days before our trip to Mexico. In hindsight, I probably should have just packed a lunch that day knowing it was going to be hard to get home for lunch. Keeping that in mind for the future ;)
Exercise and sleep - trying to exercise at least 4-5 days per week with a mix of yoga, pilates, jogging, walking and a new series called TurboFire which is challenging and pushing me off a plateau. Plus, on our trip I think I burned 50 zillion calories with all of the swimming, snorkeling and walking we did :)
Sleep is ok. I am getting to bed before midnight 99% of the time. Whereas before on nights Mike was gone, it was often 12:30 or 1am. Just not good. Especially on school nights! It is helping, but my body is telling me that I still need to try and make it by 11pm. Not 11:30 or 11:45.
Soda - I have not had one single Dr. Pepper since March 1st! Success! A little hard at first, and still crave it every once in a while. But I had the opportunity to get one yesterday and I turned it down and chose water instead! Now to watch the juice.
So I am feeling successful. And the eight pounds I have dropped and kept off since starting this journey is proof that I am somehow on the right track.
I have decided that for the month of April I am not setting a new goal. I am just going to focus on trying to make more progress with my current goals. Avoid fast food, exercise 4-5 days per week, try and make it to be so I can get 7-8 hours of sleep, and no soda. More water!
Then in May I have a huge goal in mind. It's going to be a tough one. But if I can give up Dr. Pepper, I think I can handle it :)
Thanks for following along with me. Blogging about my goals is really helping keep me accountable!
I promise to be back with more scrap related posts next week!
Have a great weekend!
