being a perfectionist totally sucks because you can never be happy. i look back at march and see all the workouts i missed, the same 7 pounds i keep losing and finding, the chores i have yet to cross of my list. but then i remember:
- i do have a semi-regular habit of going to the gym now. i am loving U-Jam and found out there is another class offered at a time convenient to me! and i’m picking up running again. it’s slow to be sure, but still it feels good.
- i’m eating a ton more fruit and vegetables than i was before. my mainly vegetarian routine during the workweek coupled with my new fascination with juicing have totally amped up the fresh produce consumption. so while the weight loss is super slow, i do know i am doing great things for my body.
- buying 2 new ipads put a damper on our savings this month, but it has allowed us to Facetime with the inlaws, which my husband and his parents thoroughly enjoy. so the money was definitely worth it. and it feels wonderful to be able to treat my husband’s parents to a nice gift after all they’ve done for us.
- we really have saved a good deal this year. for the most part, we can bank half of our salary. that’s pretty huge if you ask me.
so honestly, not a total loss in any department.
there’s not much in april that seems to excite me. we’ve got 2 big trips in may so i think i just want the days in april to hurry up already. but that’s no way to live life, so i’d like to think of some goals to help april feel more meanintful…
