Well, it's time to evaluate my month! In all honesty, it doesn't feel like that great of a month--probably my worst since starting SparkPeople in July 2010. But the LORD gave me such hope this morning with this verse:
"Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy; when I fall, I SHALL ARISE; when I sit in darkness, THE LORD shall be LIGHT unto me." Micah 7:8
1. 400 weekly minutes of cardio
This will include training for 5K across Lake Superior on March 5th
I'm not going to be participating in this event due to several factors. And it was my WORST exercise month since starting SP. So I did not achieve this goal, but March WILL BE a different story!
Snow shoe @ least once in February But I didn't like it at all and fell flat on my face. I think I need another session with someone experienced and that KNOWS how to fit the boot to the snowshoe.
Possibly plan a trip to Ice Caves--DID NOT do this, and to be honest, I'm having trouble getting over my fear of going on the ice of Lake Superior! Maybe I'll overcome by next year!
2. Strength exercise 3-5 x weekly
Making progress in this area.
3. lose 1# in February and hit normal BMI and change my weight loss icon to 40#'s lost.
Well, INSTEAD of losing a #, I GAINED a pound! But I'm revisiting my plans and trying not to get 'hung up' over the scales!
4. daily neck exercises
Definitely being consistent in this area and I think seeing some noticeable changes.
1. Bible time and prayer time daily BEFORE computer time!
I'm ESPECIALLY happy that I'm doing this one! By His rich and wonderful grace, I made time with the LORD priority over time on the computer.
2. Read 1 Cor. 13 daily
I keep FORGETTING to do this! I need to look over my monthly goals, DAILY so I can work my plan better.
Enjoy LIFE goals:
1.Shopping morning with Mary
2.Valentine's party for the kids
3.One craft project w/Mary and Sammy
Rescheduled home schooling recital due to sickness and a change of plans for March. Also, did NOT work on my scrapbook all month.
1. Make SparkPeople recipes--made a few, but need to work my plan better
2. menu planning
Now to work on MARCH goals. It will definitely be a different month! I'll be traveling with my dh and 2 youngest children for 1/2 the month; and then our DEAREST 2nd born son has decided to move back from Wyoming so we will be very busy with him. BUT working my goals will still be a priority!
