Goodbye February

Saturday, February 28, 2015

We have gotten so much snow and the temperatures have been below zero so often this month that I'm happily saying goodby to February. I am thankful that I've stuck it out with my small goals that I began in January. There was a bad two weeks when I was ill, but at least I brushed that aside and got back to it. I have been getting more exercise in with my recumbent bike and each month I add a little more time. I didn't even wait until tomorrow to add my additional time I added it today. I have also increased the intensity if the program. So that small goal is accomplished. Now I need to add strength training a couple of times a week. This is a hard one for me to stick with so I will start with twice a week and move up from there.

Food is another issue to be tackled. I am still working on the eating slower. It isn't easy since it is a life long problem I've had with eating way to fast. I am getting better and trying to remember to set the utensil down and take sips of water throughout the meal. My water intake is wonderful since it is my main drink during the day. I have also added more fruits and vegetables to my daily diet. Which reminds me I need to get carrots for my hummus.

I hope you all enjoy your weekend and have also had success with your plans so far this year.

    Am also happy to see the back of February. Today - !st March - the sun is shining and the sky is blue (even though it's cold still) - REALLY hope that will continue for a while.
    Good for you on ramping up the exercise. I'm very happy to walk - when the weather is half way decent - or I force myself onto my stationary bike. BUT - like you ST exercises seems really hard for me to start or stick with. Think I'll take a leaf out of your book and commit to two days a week as a start - am really going to try to stick with that. Two days can't be that difficult?
    Good Luck with a marvellous March emoticon emoticon

    emoticon You are doing so good. Taking baby steps and sticking with it will help you succeed and learn those new habits. Now we can look forwards to March and hopefully, warmer weather.

    No one is more happy to say goodbye to February than me! Heard this morning that March is supposed to be a much better month for us. Mother Nature better not throw us a curve ball!

    My plans are working great. I am going to add more minutes to my cardio.
    Maybe to get you to eat slower, you can read a book, paper, or magazine while you are eating. One of these might take your mind off of your eating so fast and help you to slow down.
