Happy Leap Day! How fun! I totally forgot about it until I saw the date on my phone today. Anyway, today is the day to share my plans for next month. I prepped last week and here are the goals I came up with.
Goal 1: Exercise 5 Days Per Week
I have been hitting Bullpen 3 times per week since December and have that routine down. Now it is time to start adding more workouts in on a regular basis. I actually started this goal 2 weeks ago and so far so good. Just have to keep that momentum going!
Goal 2: Stay Under 1700 Calories, 25 Days
I really, really need to start watching what I eat. I did some calculations using the Katch-McArdle formula and I should only eat about 1525 calories per day to lose weight. This is after accounting for my workouts. That means I need to more diligent about tracking my calories and making sure I stay in a good range. I chose to shoot for 25 Days in March because that is approximately 80%. That gives me a few fun days to have a treat meal.
Goal 3: Drink 8 Glasses of Water Per Day
I am very bad at drinking enough water. I have also recently gotten a head start on this one. My husband and I downloaded a new app called Plant Nanny (review to come) that has been forcing me to drink over 100 ounces of water per day. I have a good feeling about this goal!
Goal 4: Yoga Once Per Week
I don’t stretch nearly as much as I should so I thought adding yoga once per week would be a great goal. I don’t care if its just 20 minutes, I need to make it a higher priority.
Goal 5: Complete 1 Craft Project
I always like to include at least one non-weight-loss related goal. Think of this as more of a mental health goal. I could say “take time for yourself” or some other vague statement, but having a goal to complete 1 craft project is more concrete and tangible. I have and idea for a big project but I am not sure I have the funds for it, nor if I can do it in the month since I need help from my mom. I have little crochet things I can do though too or even scrapbooking!
That is it for this month! Now I need to be off to prep for some of my goals. I need to do laundry (clean clothes for all those workouts!) and clean my bedroom (which is where I do yoga). Plus, I might do a little meal planning and food prep today for the rest of the week. I want to start off the month of March practically running!
