Can I just start by saying that I really love my Spark friends? All of you are the best!
Here is my report on March goals for this past week.
-500 fitness minutes a week ~ *hangs head in shame* I only made it to 385 for the week. So short, but on the other hand I do feel that I forced myself to get out and exercise several times when I would have rather skipped it. And while not completely worn out, I felt like I worked hard this past week and that is good for something.
-Track food 5 days a week ~ I think I missed one dinner during the five weekdays that I tracked. Not too bad.
-Some kind of strength training every day ~ This was 4 out of 7. Still not good. Definitely need to improve this next week.
-Dress up nicely every day ~ Again, I hit it most days, but I still want to do a better job on my hair and make-up every day.
-Get together with a friend at least once a week ~ I would consider myself successful on this. While I didn't do something with a friend on my own, my hubby and I attended a managers’ dinner for his work on Monday, a dinner with a regional manager for his work on Wednesday and met up with our daughter and some friends after the funeral on Saturday. So I wasn't anti-social at all. Just have to work on girl time now!
-Lots of de-cluttering at home~ I was able to get several cupboards and drawers cleaned out and organized. Love having spotless cupboards and drawers! Still lots to do though!
-Paint 1 room in house ~ Tried one paint sample, but think it is too dark and too purple. So, I bought another sample yesterday and will see how I like it. I am hoping to settle on a color so I can buy the paint and have it waiting in case I get a spare evening in the next week.
-Blog updates at least once a week ~ Ta da! Here is it! Three weeks in a row. Miracles do still happen!
I am still enjoying my new routine of "interval fasting" with nothing but water and coffee between 8 pm and noon the next day. Long term I don't know how it is going to work, but I still feel good. And there is a certain sense of accomplishment when you say "no" to yourself and make it that long without food. And I find myself thinking a little more about what I eat later in the day. The whole "....do I really want to undo what I have already accomplished today....?" question comes into play.
The spring break activities start on Wednesday this week. It is going to be a very busy week and a half with both girls home for most of it. Lots of rich food too! But I am determined to stay on track as much as possible.
I also need to get better at taking photos during the week! My pickings are slim this week.
Is it wrong to love it when I am dripping with sweat after a workout?

Have a great week Spark friends!
