weighing. i actually gained weight, which seems crazy. but i have toned up some so maybe it’s muscle building. i am excited to see some actual changes. the number can motivate me. it’s obviously not doing that right now, but maybe i’ll take my measurements to see a more accurate view in the future.
weekday vegetarian. i’m doing this maybe too well! i feel like i’m only eating meat products once or twice a week. i feel good though, and my skin is clearing up. i’m enjoying cooking again too.
yoga. i only did around one yoga session a week during february. i think i need two. that will be part of what i want to do in march. (i use videos mainly from yoga with adriene. she’s sweet, informative, and a texan.)
swimming. i swam two times a week this month. i think that’s my sweet spot. the thing about swimming that is different from other workouts is the silence. there’s so much of it. i know i need it, but it also drives me crazy. i prefer to listen to music or podcasts during workouts. three times a week seems like too much too considering i want to diversify. i’m loving it though. i feel stronger not only with my muscles but with my lungs. i’m building something.
strength. i totally neglected strength workouts this month. i was just distracted by other things. i know i should do them, but swimming has been so much more appealing lately. maybe i’ll shoot for once a week for march.
walking. it’s still a bit chilly where i live, but it’s getting warmer. i only walked twice this month. i’m hoping that as it gets warmer and i get stronger, i will be able to go for more walks as a supplement to my daily workouts.
other. i did go to the gym a couple times to use the elliptical. i like that it doesn’t hurt my knees. i would like to also do some hikes coming up. there is a canyon close to where i live and it’s only $5 to get in for the day. i want to make it a regular once or twice a month thing.
the plan for march:
- 1-2 yoga sessions
- 2 swim sessions
- 1 strength
- 1 walk or cardio
- continue weekday veggie
