January Update and February Goals

Thursday, February 01, 2018

January was a bit of a mixed bag for me . It started with me battling a bad bout of bronchitis and then it got good and I started working out, doing at least 20 minutes of TaeBo in the morning emoticon and sleeping better. I was very proud of myself.

Then a week ago, my sleep went to hell in a hand-basket and everything appeared to fall apart! I was not able to work out, I was comfort-eating, having a glass or two of wine before bed, over snacking..In a nutshell it was not pretty. They do say that lack of sleep is the new smoking and I can certainly ascertain to that. When my insomnia resurfaces, it totally wreaks havoc on my physical and mental health.

On a positive note, I somehow managed to lose 3 pounds. This fell short of my goal of 5 pounds but I will take it! emoticon

For February, my goals are simple.

**I will continue to place getting adequate good sleep as a top priority. I want to build up the healthy routines and habits that improve my sleep. For me, when my sleep improves, it has a significant effect on many aspects of my life.

**Making healthy food choices and drinking water. Drinking water is an area where I fall short.There are days when I barely have a single glass of water. So hydration is a goal for February emoticon emoticon

**I just started back working out today after 2 nights of getting good sleep. So my intent is to continue this.

Happy February you all!

    I'm working on more water & better sleep as well. Like the stock market, it's not a steady climb up. :)
