Happy hump day friends! It is supposed to be another beautiful day here in south Louisiana. In case you missed me talking about it yesterday, it was beautiful then, too. My mom and I went to breakfast at the Broken Egg café, which happens to be the original one!
Only here will you find a food/menu item named the Mardi Gras.
we ate, we chatted, we relaxed. It was very nice!
Then we drove all of 20 feet to the lakefront, and went for a two mile walk. We even ran a few tenths here and there! It. was. gorgeous. If every day could be like this one I would be a happy girl.
It was an awesome way to kick off the month of March. That got me thinking about the month. I will be honest, February kinda sucked. It’s my least favorite month of the year. The hype of Christmas is over, the marathon is over, and it’s COLD, and it’s DREARY, and everyone is tired of it. (Don’t you love how I speak for everyone?!?) I also had a LOT of stuff personally going on in February that was not so good. But March, ah wonderful March. Spring, getting dark later, green grass, oh the bliss! I decided since February was so crappy, March has to be good, right? I have decided to make March MY month. The month of good times and good things. I want to really focus on being healthy, fit, and positive. I also have a few mini goals for March:
1.) Run a 5K and PR. I think I can handle three miles of running hard even with my tight IT band. I REALLY want to do this, because I know I can, and I want to before it starts getting too warm in April/May to have a shot at it.
2.) Strength train more. I didn’t put a specific amount on this because I am already doing it somewhat as a 2011 goal, I just need to do MORE! I want to be able to tell a difference in my body.
3.) Unpack ALL the boxes in my new house. I have heard too many horror stories about moving where things stay in boxes for months. I will NOT let that be me when we move this weekend. I want a fresh start with a new, clean, and organized home!
4.) Meet new people in our new town. It will be easy to just stay in my pretty new house all the time and not go anywhere or meet anyone, but we will be trying out different churches, hopefully find some running people/groups, neighborhood friends, etc. so we can be social!
I think that’s all for now. I am just trying to stay positive and really want to have a great month! I know that I am in control of my own attitude so I am trying to focus on the good and be joyful no matter what! I will keep you posted on my progress!
QOTD: Do you have any March goals?
