Health and Fitness Goals for March

Wednesday, March 01, 2017

Last month I set the following goals:
* Reduce Added Sugar
* Exercise Regularly
* Sleep Better

How'd I do?

Actually, I had pretty decent success with all of them, though not perfect on any. I've cut back my added sugar and treats to mostly on the weekends. (Even then, less than the last three months.) I haven't managed to work in more fruits and vegetables, though.

I was doing rather well on the exercise, until work load and a cold threw me off this past week. I haven't worked in the strength training, but I am getting closer to a serviceable model.

I'm getting slightly more sleep, but for some reason it's been more restful. I'm not sure what the change is, but I'll take it. I'm still not in bed before midnight as much as I'd like, but I've leveled out when I'm waking up.

So, looking forward, here's my goals for March.

1) Keep reducing sugar and give up candy. I'm not touching baked goods on this one, and probably won't make a push on pop this month, but chocolate bars, chocolate candy, and all sugar candy is out. This will hurt.

2) Make it to the track at least once a week. This is a bit of an odd one, as I've changed where I'm going to be doing my walking. Problem was, I was too late to cancel my payment at the Rec Centre this month. Anyway, since I'm paying for one more month, I want to make sure I actually go. On the one hand, I'll get a longer walk in, because it's open later than my new place, but on the other there' more travel time to get there. Ah well. I'll enjoy it.

3) Log off the computer by or at 11:30 pm. Honestly, this is going to be the most challenging one. I don't think I've pulled it off at all this month. But if I can, then it will also help with continuing the improve my sleep habits, so I'm going to give it a try.

Here we go again!
