things for march are on track. i've deviated in some places sure- but for the most part, i'm doing pretty darn good if you ask me.
for example, i participated in lent & decided to give up sugar. i made it a little over a week & then a friend got married, had an amazing sweets table with the cutest desserts and itty-bitty bamboo spoons, and i caved. but then i jumped back on track only to lose my mind over a chocolate milkshake after our weekend of sailing. sugar is crack. no doubt about it. for the most part, i'm really good during the week & then over the weekend- i give in. next week i'll be diving into a delicious homemade rhubarb pie to celebrate my birthday (!) & if that's not reason enough to fall off the wagon one last time, i don't know what is. regardless of the falls i've had a long the way, the fact that i'm saying no to sugar more than yes, is making me feel pretty good about this challenge.
as for the other goals i set for march: i'm running, swimming & biking at least 4 times a week. i'm super happy with that. my sister decided to join me for a triathlon this year so we're going to start training together. we're thinking about doing a big one in september which gives us plenty of time to get our butts in gear.
as for the bedroom- well, this spilled from the bedroom to the bathroom to the office. on the plus side, we have 2 totally new & functional spaces that are a million times better than what we started with. i'll just have to roll the bedroom project over to next month.
and surfing. this hasn't happened yet- but there's talk that we might go this weekend. the forecast is calling for sun, sun & surprise, more sun, making for an otherwise perfect weekend that much better.
so there it is, my monthly progress report. i'm really happy i was able to stay on track this month. there have been quite a few distractions, but there's something so rewarding that comes from getting things accomplished & crossing these mini-goals off my list. making the effort of staying focused, totally worth it.
