Sweet mother of pearl, I’ve done it! Two months of posting every. single. day.
(Sick of me yet? ha).
It’s been a marvelous journey and little bit of a comeback for me. I made a goal to post every day for a year two years ago, but I had failed miserably by February and gave up. Somehow, this time feels different. Tackling each month as I go seems so much more manageable… and every day that I post my drive to keep writing only increases.
So, in case you were wondering–I’ve decided to keep going and give March a go! It’s only another 31 days, and that’s not so long. March also marks the beginning of my quest to find Six Dresses in Six Months… I’ve already found my first dress and I’m really excited to show you! It’s completely different from anything I own, and I feel like it has a bit of a 1960’s vibe to it.
In case you’ve forgotten, I also made another goal for February: to be sugar & yeast free. Well, I didn’t make it all the way through, but I did make it 16 days before I found it too difficult to keep up. I feel great, and it helped kick start me into thinking about food differently, and has helped me want to take the time to prepare food that is good for me. So, while I didn’t make it as long as I wanted to, I’m proud of what I did do.
And on a similar note, I’ve decided to make a goal for March. Now that the weather is beginning to get nicer and the snow is melting, I’m running out of excuses not to exercise. Amber’s goal January Yoga challenge really inspired me, and I’m going to take on a similar one:
I want to run 6 days a week for the entire month of March.
When I stopped running last fall, I was comfortable running 6km in under an hour. It’s only been 6 months, but I know that I’m terribly out of shape and I need a bit of a boot camp. I plan to get out and run Monday – Saturday for the next four weeks.
Now then–I’m no inexperienced runner, and I know it’s not necessarily a good thing to run hard every day. I plan to alternate the intensity and lengths, but I want to get out every day. Sundays will be my day of rest, but beginning tomorrow I’m going to don my woolies and hit the pavement. Wish me luck and please send me lots of encouragement… I’m the best at making excuses not to do things that are hard. haha
So, there you have it. I feel like March is going to be a very exciting month, and I can’t wait to share it with you!
Good luck with the running! I can’t wait to get back to it, but it’s not warm enough for me just yet. You are braver than I!
‘Atta girl! I’m working on 30K/week at the moment – last week I managed in 2 10Ks and 2 5s…. this week.. I dunno…. One day at a time, and YES I’m checking in on you! ;)
I love your new goals. I am sure you’ll be able to do it!
