I didn't get in as many workouts as I would have liked to for February. I kept getting started on a streak and then two or three days later, take a day off (from working out). I didn't give up though. I just got right back up and started to workout again. I really was hoping that I would do better.
Then, I think to myself, why do I need to do s streak? I could just make a goal to work out 5 days a week and it would be more achievable to me. But, The times that I have tried to do this, I don't seem to have the motivation to keep going. I think that 5 days a week is too stressful for me. I push aside other things in my life that may need to take more of a priority and just think of making my goal. When I see a goal, I like to do it. I want to keep motivated and stay on track, but I also don't want to feel overwhelmed.
So, as silly as it sounds, I want to keep trying for how many days in a row I can work out for at least 20 MINUTES. I want to make this a goal for MARCH. I want to work out every single day and if I slip, I want to get back up again and try again. I know that this can be done.
I can even just go outside for a walk for 20 minutes and it will be something. I don't need to do TaeBo every day either. I really want to only do Taebo once a week. It really kicks my butt! I have three Jillian Michaels DVDs and 2 Sparkpeople DVDs. I am sure that even if the gym is closed, that I can and WILL make time to do a work out.
My other goal is to stay away from processed foods as much as possible. I need to make more meals at home and not buy things that are convenient. For example, I was going to buy some canned soup the other day and I looked at the label and saw that it had A LOT of MSG, A LOT OF SODIUM and tons of artificial ingredients. I want to make some from scratch and control what I put into it.
I am going to make a goal to eat healthier too. I am going to juice more and make more stuff from my fruits and veggies that I bought. I can find a way to get them in. I need to put healthy foods in. No more fatty grease, no more MSG, no more 600mg of Sodium per serving , no more high fructose corn syrup and no more proprolyne gylcol (a food additive that is also the active ingredient in anti-freeze).
I am going to make this month count!!! I am going to make this month matter!! I am going to make a difference and do my best!!!
