March's Resolutions.

Hello March, I cannot believe you are here already! It feels like only yesterday it was December and we were celebrating the holidays. And now, we are already three months into 2013. Needless to say, the past three months have flown by!

As I mentioned last month, I started reading The Happiness Project and have started setting resolutions for myself each month. Last month, I added a few new resolutions to my list. I would like to say that I was successful in all of them, but that would be far from the truth. I hate to admit it, but February has been a tough month for me. 

- up until the other week, i was going to bed early most nights. then i started playing around with my blog's code some more, and that plan flew out the window. the exhaustion finally caught up to me this week; so, for the past few nights, i have had to force myself to bed earlier than i would like. 

- cleaning the condo has also taken a back seat, mainly because i am working tons and the boyfriend and i are on different sleep cycles. i am hoping to get back on track in a few weeks.

- exercise, oh how i really dislike you. i was actually doing pretty good for a week or two, maybe even three. my biggest mistake was starting to stay up late again because once i started doing that, i had little to no energy to exercise. though i have been doing regular stretching almost every day! 

- last week i ran out of ginger root, but i had been drinking ginger tea every day. it was the best thing i could have done all winter because i didn't get sick once. i've also been drinking water more regularly (not as much as i should be drinking though). to my surprise, in the evenings, i actually have started to crave a nice cold glass of ice water. reducing the soda pop has been really hard. some days i can go with only half a can, other days i really crave it. 

Knowing that the next two months are going to be hell at work, and I am already feeling overwhelmed with the work load, I am not going to add any new resolutions to my list this month (or next). For the entire month of April, I will be working 7 days/week. Ugh! Anyways, my main goal is to work slowly on my exercise and get myself to a point where my muscles aren't in as much pain. Every time I go to get a massage, he comments on how bad they are. This is something I really need to focus on, and sitting up straight! 

How are you resolutions coming along? 


  1. I really love this idea - I think it's better than a yearly resolution, because it's easier to keep track of.
    Good luck with March!

    1. I set some yearly priorities, and to accomplish them, I have tried to break them down to smaller goals. It makes it much easier! Thanks for the luck, I need it!! :)

  2. Ha, yeah, I needed to revamp my goals as well so I just posted on this same topic. Spring always makes me want to do better! So... I posted about 3 things I'll finally be making myself do in March. I think it's much easier to start small :-).

    1. Starting small is definitely the way to go, I find! Good luck!!! :)
