Feburary in Review

Overall I started the month super motivated and I really planed out my meals and kept on track. I even planned my deviations from the food plan. At some point in the month it all switched.

I indulged over the last few days and I feel crappy. For the month I counted about 22 "indulgences". Like Cold Stone or a cheeseburger. Bit too many for someone who is serious about their health. My issues with eating the good stuff are improving but still there.

18 of 28 days (64%), down from Jan of 70% but intensity and time increased. I really enjoy my exercise except the last few days. I reached the point that I have achieved and higher level of fitness and its time to increase the intensity. I need to push myself more. With the treadmill I either have to make the hills are higher or start jogging. I am looking into C25K program, Couch to 5K. My Yoga practice has improved. My core strength is getting better.

One way to sum it up I need to work on why consistency feels like a 4 letter word.

For March I will work on the food issues. I plan to not be so strict on the carbs. Sensible eating. Reduce the number of indulgences and really isolate the feeling I have about food. Intensity will increase on the exercise. I have a goal weight in mind for the end of March but I want to wait until my weigh in on 3/9.
