Healthy Me - February Review

February went by so fast! It was busy and full of changes and adjustments. It seems like I was just getting settled into the month and it was over. Let's see how I did with my health goals.

1. Lose 3 pounds. I started February at 170 pounds. The first week I gained a pound. The second week I lost 3 pounds. The third week I went back up one pound and week four I stayed the same. End of month status: -1 pound.

2. Increase water intake. I averaged 1.5 cups of water per day this month. Some days I drank 3 cups, some days none at all. Overall, I really fell short in this area.

3. Walk 10 miles. This makes me laugh now. Did I really think I would accomplish this during a move and big adjustment to routines? I walked 1.5 miles in February. (I'm talking about purposeful, exercise type walking not just counting steps.)

4. Start new skin care routine. I did start this, but I'm struggling with making it a consistent habit. I only did it 5 out of the 28 days.

I think I need to set more specific goals for March and put more intentional effort into reaching these goals.

March goals:
1. Lose 3 pounds.
2. Track food and exercise daily.
3. Drink at least 24oz of water a day.
4. Do at least 15 minutes of exercise a day.
5. Skin care 3 days a week.
6. Schedule goals in planner each week.

That's it for February's update. I hope you had success with your healthy goals. If you've gotten off track a bit, today's a great day to start again! Why not set a few goals that will benefit your health in March? I'd love to know how your doing.

  1. What is the skin care routine? My goal is to wash my face before bed each night, and I do most nights, but sometimes I just get lazy.
