I figured you might be tired of me posting goals around here and not much else, so instead of doing a recap post AND a new list for March, we’re just going to combine them. Here we go:
I’m happy to say that I actually 100% accomplished something from this list! The Save the Dates went out this week and we’re starting to hear back from people about the design and the link to our wedding website. I’m loving all the feedback!
I’m starting to think cutting down on sugar just isn’t in the cards for me (evident by the fact that I just typed “carbs” instead of “cards”). I do really well with it for a few days by grabbing only one square of dark chocolate when I want something sweet, but then Cadbury Mini Eggs come out and I’m a goner. Then I will be really good again and pass up a piece of cake at an office birthday party (physically painful, don’t recommend it), only to come home and find that Dan has bought me a slice of cheesecake. Work in progress still.
I like to think I’m pretty good with numbers, but somehow 10,000 seemed a lot smaller to me before I bought a Fitbit and was supposed to take that many steps in one day. I’ve only hit that goal twice in the past three weeks, and both times involved me running laps through our small apartment, or jogging in place next to the bed at 11pm to get those last few steps in. Going for walks hasn’t been much of an option around here lately, but when all this snow finally melts, I plan to hit 10,000 multiple times a week.
Here are my goals for March:
I have this thing, and I think it’s really a thing, so let me know if you do this also, but I’ll buy something special for myself or get a nice gift and then be afraid to use it because I want to make it last. Well, this month I’m going to try to use those things up because I should be enjoying them! There will always be more “things” when my coconut shower scrub and fancy eye cream are gone.
We’ve checked a lot off of our wedding planning list in the last month, but the one thing I haven’t been able to do is find a dress. I know sometimes they can take months to create, and even though I don’t intend to buy something custom and would rather an off-the-rack, simple number instead, I would still feel better having that checked off with time to spare.
In the name of saving money and eating better, I also need to cut down on Starbucks trips in the morning, or grabbing a snack bar as an alternative. I know there is a Pinterest board full of interesting, healthy breakfast ideas out there just calling my name. Do you have any to add?
Check back in a few weeks to see if I can finally have a month where I reach all three goals! Daylight Savings and Spring are coming this month to bring longer, sunnier days and I think that will be all the motivation I need. 🙂
