February Follow-Up and March Goals

Also known as “the post where I make a bunch of excuses.”

1. Start going through my French book

Does getting through 5 pages and a couple conjugation exercises count as “start going through?”  I say yes!  But in March I hope to make it through the entire first chapter.  It’s only 13 pages long anyways.

2. Lift 2x/week.

A+!  I win!  But really, I think I decided I hate lifting.  I don’t know what I’m doing wrong but the only thing that hurts after I lift is the crook of my elbow and my wrists.  Follow up goal for March will be to do push ups twice a week.  Maybe the old-fashioned workout is the best.

3. Realize when I’m in a bad mood and make a concentrated effort to get out of it.

Hi, it’s me happy Lauren.  I won’t say I was in a good mood every minute of every day this month (who was?) but overall, I had a pretty positive month.  Turns out when you stop focusing so intently on being happy, it’s much easier to just be happy.

As for our joint goals…

1. Cut back on the amount of time we spend on our phones.

HA HA!  Nuff said.

2. Joey does the meal planning for two weeks.

This actually went really well!  It was surprisingly easy and pretty enjoyable to give up total control of our meal plan.  I was back to planning again this week but I’m asking Joey to take over the duties again this upcoming week.

As for March, we each have some personal goals that involve reading books and other boring things, but our joint goal for the month is to not eat out!

Which clearly meant I had to take advantage of our last day to go out and get Cold Stone.  Froyo is good and all but sometimes real deal, creamy, full fat, full dairy ice cream is where it’s at.

Believe it or not, we just thought this would be a fun challenge for the both of us to do together.  Plus it’ll be a big money saver.  I will say that we’re going to visit Joey’s grandparents in Arizona this month and probably won’t be able to avoid going out while we’re there (I’m not about to pack a weeks worth of food in my suitcase), but we’re letting that slide.  The point isn’t to punish ourselves, after all.  And it’s only a month.  Should be easy, right?

Was February a good month for you?

Ice cream or froyo?

Could you go an entire month without eating out?

  1. February was definitely not my favorite…but I think it’s just because the crummy weather is finally getting to me. Hopefully with spring fast approaching, March will be MY positive month!

    I’d have to go with fro-yo. I love me some Cold Stone (all lovin’ no oven is where it’s AT) but if I’m being honest, I’m really all about the toppings…and self-serve fro-yo shops? Well they release my inner 6 year old! Sprinkles, cereal, HOT FUDGE!!! Yesssss! Lol

    I could EASILY go a month without eating out…my bf on the otherhand, not so much! I’ve been trying to work on him about that tho…I swear he wastes so much money paying going to sandwich places during the week!
