Not the best blogger over here. Oh well, I survived the month of March and that always seems to be an accomplishment in itself. If you celebrate, I hope you had a lovely Easter. I also hope you had some of the beautiful weather we enjoyed in Massachusetts this weekend. The best.
If you like country music, you probably know Florida Georgia Line. Caroline introduced me to them last summer on our Jackson Hole trip, with great song Cruise. Last night she told me about the new remix of this song featuring Nelly, which is just amazing. Unfortunately, youtube seems to hate it for some reason so they have muted every version on there. I guess I'm going to have to stop being cheap and buy it on iTunes. Florida Georgia Line also has a new song out called Get Your Shine On.
This month I was aiming for 3 miles of swimming, 60 miles of biking, 20 miles of running and 4 hours of yoga. My final totals were:
Swim: 6200 Yards (3.5 miles- goal met)
Bike: 62.8 (goal met)
Run: 21.5 miles (goal met)
Yoga: approx. 4 hours- I failed to track this 100% for some of my home practices, but I was definitely in the 4 hour range somewhere.
I'm not going to lie. I got sick this month, and had out of town visitors, so hitting these goals involved a lot of catch up for the last week. Let's just say I will definitely be taking the first day of April off. Whew.
I read so many great books in the last two months. I still can't get them out of my mind. I just finished another book, and now I feel like I don't even know where to go next. See my last post for the specific books I recommend.
Seriously, I have to get rid of this section. I rarely buy new clothes and I am not that fashionable. Last month I discussed yoga pants, so there was that. Maybe I will just start posting pictures of my friends babies wearing cute clothes?
Goals Recap- March
Other than my fitness goals, I was also aiming for some other things in the month of March. My biggest accomplishment was cleaning for 10 minutes a night at 7:20. As I've mentioned before, I hate cleaning and get easily overwhelmed by it. The ten minute clean up was great, especially for the daily tasks like sorting and recycling mail etc. I also applied this baby steps method to other aspects of my life. For example, at work I wanted to donate/give away several books in my classroom library (I inherited some really bad ones when I started teaching and I was desperate then, but now they are just taking up space). I never have any extra time at work, but I decided I had time to go through one bin a day and try to get rid of about 10 books. At the end of two weeks I had put aside over 100 books for new teachers to take. Yay! This was a really important lesson this month and I'm really excited to explore it even further in April.
I failed miserably at getting ready for bed at 9. I did okay on saving money in general, but I also booked our summer trip so any money saved was immediately spent. Oops.
I will be back tomorrow with my April goals. They need their own post.
How was your March and what are you looking forward to in April?
