So its now March 5th... which means most of us have given up on our "New Years Resolutions"...right?
I am proud of myself. Does it make me a total loser to say that I have stuck with my 3 main goals for this year?
1. Floss every night before bed.
2. Read my Bible every day.
& 3. Send snail mail once a month!
I can honestly say I have done every one of those. What blows my mind? I used to HATE flossing... like, with all of my being. Especially since I have that stupid permanent retainer on my bottom row, and I have to buy that expensive floss to even get to it.. I used to think why bother? Then I realized, hmm...I like my teeth...I'd like to keep my teeth.
I'm now more than 16% through with my Bible App that has me reading daily scripture so I can finish the entire Bible by day 365 of 2013. CAN'T WAIT. To me, that is a huge accomplishment. My faith is stronger than ever and I am finding so much more joy in the little things in life.
Sending snail mail once a month...? You betcha! I actually just mailed out an adorable little hand written note to my girl Kaitlyn because she is just so great. I am so excited about all the packages I've been sending, its just so fun to get REAL MAIL instead of an email/text...but don't get me wrong... I LOVE texting/emailing all my favorite blogger ladies out there... you know who you are!!
As far as working out goes... we haven't given up. As you know...back in February Caleb and I decided to start Insanity. We had to put that on hold for 4 days because he got really sick... so there have been a few off days...however! We are now 14 days into the 60 day program and I am ALREADY seeing results. I've dropped 5 pounds and I'm trying to eat cleaner. For the most part I am... but if anyone has the secret to NOT crave those cupcakes left in the office kitchen... please, let me in on it.
Or else I'm stuck staring at them like this hilarious dog above.
Its not much easier to say NO to my yummy favorites (cupcakes, candy, mountain dew on the DAAILYYY), but it will be worth it when its all over.
Gosh... my post-workout faces need some work.
We did do the fit test last night... and O-M-G. I talked to some of you yesterday about how bummed I'd be if I saw no improvement... I am excited to saaayyyy...
I IMPROVED ON EVERYTHING!!!! This is a HUGE deal to me... I really was slightly convinced that I my not improve. So after work I went straight to Caleb's. I intentionally left my results from the FIRST fitness test at home so I had nothing to compare it to. That way I'd go into this fit test "blind" and could compare numbers later. I came home, and was thrilled. The work outs suck... they really do. In the best way possible. I truly believe after this is over it will be the healthiest me I've ever seen.
How are you doing on what you set your mind too back on January 1??
