Y’all, it was a ROUGH winter. It was cold. And snowy. And then, it somehow got colder and snowier. And it lasted forever. Good grief. Now that we’ve entered what’s known as spring (in other words, temps in the 40s and 50s, and lots and lots of rain), it feels like it’s flying by. Where oh where did April go? Nevertheless, here’s a quick recap of how I did with my intentions in April…
Work It Out! My goal was to complete 30 workouts in 30 days. Kind of like last month, I didn’t workout everyday, did doubles other days and finished the month with a few blank days. I’m good with it. It felt good. I ran a (5K) race with girlfriends and signed up for a half marathon this fall. The question is what races, if any, I’ll run between now and then.
Get ‘Er Done! I made another goal to write about Italy. And, y’all, I hope I didn’t disappoint. I wrote about Milan, Genoa, Cinque Terre, Florence and Lake Como. I can finally check that looming goal off my list!
When I think of May, I think of planting flowers (in these parts), growing grass and a feeling of rejuvenation. My goals this month reflect the feelings of spring.
Eat Clean! I know this term means different things to different people. So, let me briefly say that I want to clean up my act. I need to reach for fruit more than chocolate. I need to watch portion control. I need to be more thoughtful about what I’m eating, rather than just blindly letting my wants guide me. It’s a few small adjustments, but ones that need to be purposeful.
Smooth Thy Heels! This winter was rough on my skin. My feet are painfully dry, as are my hands. This month is all about pampering my hands, feet, elbows, knees and more in anticipation of warm summer days wearing sundresses and sandals. Again, I only need to make some moderate adjustments to my everyday routine, but I need this goal so that I am purposeful about caring for my body.
Do you have any traditions to welcome spring? How do you care for your body when its seen better days? Do you have any goals for the upcoming month?
