Confession time. I have not worked out since my run on Sunday. I had every intention of going for a short run on Tuesday, but my stomach was upset so I wasn't feeling it. Last night, I just had a couple beers and went to bed early. I feel like January was kind of my "month off". I was still running since I wanted to get ready for my 10K, but I slacked on my eating and slacked on doing any other types of workouts.
I also took a break from the scale as I was making myself crazy. That's not to say I didn't step on it at all because hey, what else is there to do while I wait for the shower to warm up. I just stopped obsessing about it.
February dawns a new month, though. I want to get back on track and work towards getting down to my original goal of 135. I have the Warrior Dash in April to get ready for and I sure don't want to be soft for that. Plus, we cannot forget Operation Red Bikini. This girl wants to be able to wear a bikini for the first time in 14 years.
So, I have a few things in mind to keep me going this month. First off, I am joining Meredith and Jillian to do Ripped in 30 every day this month. This is going to be a struggle for me as I have yet to complete a full month of the 30DS. I am also going to continue running. I find that I do enjoy it and while I may never be a long distance runner, it is a great cardio workout and it is a great way to blow off steam.
These are my goals for February. I really like setting month to month goals instead of whole year resolutions. Let's face it, I don't know where I'll be mentally or physically when September rolls around so how can I plan that far in advance? Haha, planning. Who am I kidding?
How about you? Any new goals for the new month?
