Maybe it’s because February is a short month, but I feel like it went by so quickly! What am I talking about? I say that at the end of every month!
I made some goals for February that I pretty much neglected. Here’s what they were-
Cook for my family one night a week.
I only cooked twice for them, so this was kind of a fail. I made shrimp pizza, which they enjoyed, and I also made them an enchilada casserole that no one ate. It’s hard to find something that everyone will eat, and I’m either working / busy / too lazy to cook a separate meal for them. Also, my mom happened to cook more this month, so they didn’t starve 🙂
Drink 64 oz of water a day.
Uh, MAJOR fail! I think I maybe did this once? I am horrible about drinking water. I really want to work on this, but I hesitate to drink water at school because I hate having to pee all the time!
Take care of moving-related things.
Ugh… another fail. Honestly, it looks like moving to Colorado might not even happen- long story for another time. Please excuse me while I pick my broken heart off the ground.
Spend money more wisely.
I think I did pretty good on this. I’ve hardly bought any new clothes, and I only ate out a few times, which is always a money-suck. This is probably the only goal I did well on 🙂
Do ab work three times a week.
FAIL! I think I made a concerted effort to do ab work on my own once. The other two times were at Body Pump. Whoops!
I’ve decided that my goals for March will be weekly instead of monthly. I think it will be easier for me to keep track of them that way. I’ll post them tomorrow 🙂
Even though I kind of failed at ab work this month, I managed to squeeze some in tonight! I did some random ab work as well as some weight lifting at home.
I planned to go for a hike after school- there’s a canyon about a mile away from the campus that I like to go to sometimes. It’s no Runyon Canyon, but it’s nice when you want to exercise outside. Unfortunately the recent rains turned everything to mud, and the canyon was closed!
Since I was already dressed for a workout and had a few hours to kill before my sister got out of school, I found a neighborhood to explore.
That hill doesn’t look like much- but my glutes were feeling it!
All worth it for this view. So much snow on the mountains! My cell phone camera does not do it justice.
Around 5, I was hit by a serious squash craving. Something had to be done about this. Bike to the rescue!
There’s a Korean market a mile away from my house that sells kabocha squash for really cheap, so I pedaled over to get my squash fix. I also got strawberries and onions, but I let the squash ride shotgun on the way back.
I can only imagine what my neighbors think of me photographing a squash sitting on my bike.
The squash and I shared some good times, but unfortunately for Mr. Kabocha, I enjoy squash the most in my belly 🙂
I made a quinoa flax pizza crust and topped it with the squash, caramelized onions, feta, and dried cranberries. Never gets old.
Did you have any goals for February?
