And so we begin a brand new month. Can you believe it’s March already? Because I definitely can’t. Since this semester started, the days and weeks (and apparently months!) have been flying by practically unnoticed; I think that this strange winter weather has something to do with my disbelief at the nearing arrival of spring as well.
One of my new favorite things about starting a new month is my new-ish tradition of reviewing the past month, what went well, what decidedly did not, and reevaluating my current priorities. There’s something rejuvenating about looking back, refreshing, and starting anew.
What I have discovered this month, in the ever-evolving fashion of these by-the-numbers challenges, is that the goals I chose for February (which actually rolled over from January!) are not actually all that practical for my whirlwind, nutty semester.
I did hit 65 servings of produce, up from last month, which I’m glad about. Now, I know there are many of you out there to whom 65 servings of produce is a pretty sad number, and let it be understood that I know it’s not a great number. But it’s progress toward a healthier Katie, and to me that’s pretty darn great!
The other goal from February that I came much closer to was to blog every day (aka on a regular basis). This goal was chosen because while I know that writing really helps me clear my head, I do not turn to it as readily as I turn to less-healthy options. Making this my goal two months in a row has really helped me to prioritize my blogging, and now the writing is really starting to become a habit. Yay!
For March, I’m ready to revisit my epically-failed December goal of hugely reducing the time I spend in front of/in earshot of the t.v. This is one of those less-healthy options that I mentioned above; when I get too overwhelmed, t.v. is an easy way to escape and has really become an all-too-time-consuming habit. I also think it’s really consuming my brain ~ it wouldn’t hurt me to be alone with my thoughts once in a while!!
I also am going to hold onto and continue improving my produce servings goal ~ this one’s super important!
So without further ado, March’s By The Numbers Goals:
- 124: Minimum Number of Fruit/Veggie Servings Consumed
- 40: Television Hours Watched
