The Ends of March

Saturday, March 31, 2012

Welp, March is over, and I now, officially, have one full month logged here on Spark!! (I started in the middle/end of February, so I don't count that...)

But anyway, it's the end of March, and I spent a little time yesterday, going over the goals I thought I had made for March. I couldn't find them anywhere... But I told myself I would track every day possible, and not eat mindlessly, and finish through Week 3 of the C25K program.

I tracked everything I could, when I could. This last week was a little iffy - only because I didn't have internet at night, so I couldn't catch up on my day. But through all of that, I stayed on course, ate the best I could, and tried to measure (one of this week's challenges) everything I could. It was a good experience, and could *possibly* be applied to my lifestyle, maybe. Probably. I mean, yeah. I will continue to do this. (Sorry about that, I just went on a word-in-mind-straight-to-keybo
ard bender there.)

I was consciously eating this month, considering everything, what were good choices and what were better choices. For instance: when sister and I went to see Hunger Games, we split a medium popcorn, instead of getting the large! (Granted not getting any would have been the best choice, but that simply wasn't going to happen.) I realized how much time I have spent looking for or looking at food. Yuck. Why should I waste my time even pondering it, when I know it's not a good decision? So that was relieving.

And lastly: I FINISHED WEEK THREE OF THE C25K RUNNING PROGRAM!! I know, it's just three minutes, but to my over-burdened little body, those three minutes were killer the first time!! Then the next time it was easier, and the last time, I felt as though I could go for another round!! I'm very proud of that: I do a lot of things in my life to 80% or 90% completed. I was glad to see this goal through to the end. (now, I know it's not the end of the program, but I'm glad I set myself a deadline and met it!!)

I'm very proud of this month. I did a lot of good work, pushed myself, learned a lot about me. I'm excited to do more work in April!!

As soon as I put them together, I'll actually post my April goals!

    Congratulations! We must have started at about the same time and I am likewise pleased with my first full month. Enthusiasm counts for a lot and I have tried really hard. I am hoping that I will continue to enjoy and to strive to achieve new things as the months go by. Its great to celebrate though for me the road is a long one and I am perhaps looking to settle into something a bit more balanced.

    I loved hearing about your running. I'm not to that stage at this point - I don't think my knees could handle it!
