#1 Goal (tracking)
#2 Goal (commute to work once per week one way on my bicycle)
*(I did not ride my bike once per week, but I did make the journey 4 times. I should edit this to say once for EVERY week :))
#3 Goal (personal)
For June, this is what I'd like to accomplish:
#1 Track 4 days per week perfectly
#2 Track 200 fitness minutes per week.
#3 Eat out (takeout, restaurant, fast food, delivery, etc.) only once per week and that includes if someone else buys me food. I think this will help me save money and also my cooking is way healthier than restaurant food. One caveat of this is if I have to travel for business, this becomes impossible. I know the first week I will have one quick trip.

Alright, so next month (February, 2014) I am doing a healthy living challenge again, and I need to write about it now, so I can make sure I follow through. Writing this entry is tough though, because I feel like it is committing in advance to doing something uncomfortable. Here it goes.
February will be a sweets free month.
To those of you who say "Oh that doesn't sound that bad" you know what? Eat me. This blog isn't for you. I struggle with sweets, they are one of my favorites. Especially cookies. But in February, my wonderful DW and I will be having a baby, and I need a healthy living challenge that will not take up time like doing 30 minutes of cardio a day etc. I also am trying to focus now on detaching emotions from eating and relating to food as fuel, and not as emotional crutches etc. So I think having a sweet free February will be a good, tough challenge for me, especially with the new baby.
Oh and one more thing...I will still be putting sugar in my coffee.

It has been difficult to come up with an elegant way to start this blog so I won't: I'm not an alcoholic. I just think it is pretty hard to argue that drinking alcohol is good for you, it is mostly for fun. Yes I know that it is said a glass of red wine a week is good for your heart and so forth, but I am fairly certain there are not studies published that say NOT drinking a glass of red wine a week is BAD for your heart. Anyways, I enjoy a drink every now and then, but I think in the spirit of monthly fitness challenges I am going to have the Dry December Challenge, which will end on the New Years Eve party. I got this idea when I realized just how much carbs and sugar are in alcohol in conjunction with the negative effects it can have on your sleep and your metabolism. So lets tip our glasses (of seltzer) to a dry december! I have made one of my dashboard goals No Alcohol and will check it off every day when I log in.

So as many or none of you (well at least one of you) knows, I am currently in the process of finishing up my doctoral dissertation. The last couple weeks I have retracted from all activities except for preparing my work in order to finish my writing, which includes tracking my food and exercise. Obviously, finishing something like a doctorate should come above all other activities, however, i think not sparking was much more of an excuse to self indulge to help deal with my stress. Luckily, I havent "gone off the rails" so to speak, though I have been eating a little extra and exercising a little less. Well, this morning I considered just getting some donuts to go with my morning coffee, and decided "enough is enough!" I might not have time for the next few days to work in my regular exercise routine, but i certainly have time to NOT eat a donut. So I am back to tracking, I have been walking every day, and I look forward to a good long workout after I submit my draft. Happy sparkling everyone!
