I had two goals in January - 1. No alcohol, and 2. Drink a green smoothie every day. I give myself an A on the booze and a C on the smoothies.
Physically I felt so much better not having a daily cocktail. The best part was the sleep. I slept SO much better and as a result had much more energy in general. Hallelujah! Also, I felt more hydrated. And my pants fit better. I hope this was enough of a reset to help me be even more conservative with alcohol than I was before. When I set this goal my husband said he was surprised because I drink so little. But even that little bit affected me negatively. So cheers to less drinking.
I got a little bored with the smoothies. But in setting this goal I overcame some of my laziness of getting out my blender and rinsing it right away. Overall, it was good. I missed a bunch of days when we ran out of bananas.
For February, I'm tempted to be really ambitious and say I'm going to get up at 5 every morning, but no. I just can't.
1. Read to my kids every day. I already missed Day 1.
2. Take my blood pressure daily and record it... because I have a touch of hereditary high blood pressure. Fun times, I'm almost 35!
January gave us 2 glorious snow days which is rare for where we
live. It was a great time to cozy up and be together as a family. The kids loved the snow and we loved even more coming in to warm up by the fire. It was a little bit magical.
Bring in on, February!
