Week in Review
Sunday, January 31, 2010
Ok...so maybe it's more like Month in Review. Though, 31 days seems like a long, long time to me right now. I should remember that next time I start thinking I can't accomplish losing "X" number of pounds in 4 weeks!
Overall, I'm happy with January. Quite honestly though, I haven't ended it so well. I've had a monster sweet tooth today and I've given in by having a cinnamon roll and some chocolate chips with walnuts. But! I'm not going to beat myself up over it!
I've decided to hit the gym during my lunch hour, which is super easy cause there is a small fitness center right in my office building. It's made such a huge differene in my work day! AND my entire day! I'm better able to concentrate when I get back to my desk and I feel like I'm accomplishing so much by taking advantage of the time I have. I feel great when I get home and I'm not wanting to just veg out in front of the tv. Don't get me wrong, I still take time to unwind when I get home, but it's not because I feel like I don't have the drive to do anything.
I'm making better choices too about what I put into my body. My husband and I didn't eat poorly before I started getting serious this month, but I'm definitely more aware of what I buy and he's even noticed a difference in how he feels. That feels great to know that my habits are rubbing off on him, even if it happens to be inadvertently.
So.....January was great! And now I have 4 weeks to look forward to doing just as well if not slightly better. February will be tough though, because my birthday is on the 6th and because of schedules, celebrations with family and friends are spread throughout the month. Plus, my husband and I are planning on taking a mini-trip for Valentines, and I know all of this will throw me off of my rythm a bit. But, it will be good for me to practice making better choices while I live life!
So long January! Hello February!
