I ate my feelings and stress daily
I haven’t hiked as much as I should have
I had to stop couch 2 5k after week one because work had consumed me
My eating is out of control and I drank more often than I would have liked
It’s been a long month filled with stress from a project at work. It’s over and so my stress should move back down to normal levels in regards to work.
I’ve been insecure about everything.
I found a book called “The Book of Awakening” and it’s sort of a daily dose of meditation and mindfulness that I’ve really enjoyed.
I’ve left the disappointment behind in regards to calories and food - I’ll get there, and I’ll keep trying so there is no need to get so upset over it.
Exercise is helping me clear my mind, find some calm, and take deep breaths.
I plan to read more actual books in April. I listened to a few in March, but want to actually read a few in April.
I’m journaling daily now, which is a big help also. It really helps to get shit out on a page.
Thoughts, Notes, Conclusions
Pizza just needs to be off limits because I have ZERO self control (this hasn’t changed since February)
When I’m feeling drained, I don’t want to be good. I shall try harder.
I need to give up the convenience of eating out and make it convenient to eat at home.
I’m going to exercise even more in April.
I plan to eat frugally and more healthy in April.
Daily mindfulness is great for really centering my stress. The time I set aside for my book really helps me realize it could be worse and it could be better but it doesn’t matter. I need to be here, let shit go, focus on current shit, and be present in life.
March Wins & Goals for April
Read/Listen to at least 8 books
I’m going to continue to try to drink less alcohol - to make it more of a special occasion instead.
Take a weekend off of social media
Going to restart Couch 2 5K on April 1
I increased my days over 10,000 steps from 57% to 61% of the month and thus want to reach that 75% mark in April.
More adventurous hikes - I have a few spots in mind out in west Texas
I want to incorporate longer daily walks and lunch walks.
I need to take a mindful break daily.
Read and write daily
Daily walks at least 6 times per week, regardless of Couch 2 5K workouts or hikes
