Goals - February report

February is done! Let's review the goals:
  1. Lose three pounds each month.
    This is absolutely terrible.  I am truly holding myself accountable here, but this is beyond ridiculous.  Up 4.6 pounds for the month.  We did have a death in the family, and I had to do all the funeral arrangements and it was all highly stressful, and my birthday was also this month, so add more eating things there... not good for the weight loss at all.  My informal goal for March is to not gain any more weight, damnit.
  2. Work out at least 20 days a month.
    Success: 23 days, which is impressive given the issues this month.  Wish it was reflected in the scale, but I imagine the scale would've been much worse without it.  
  3. Hit my 10,000 steps a day average over the month.
    Success! 310,839 steps for the month - 11,101 steps average.  I am grateful that I was able to make up for those "off" days on other days (17k one day helped!), and hope to keep on this trend going forward.
  4. Cook one new (and healthy!) recipe a month.
    Failed: hey, I barely remembered to cook most days, so I'm definitely cutting myself slack.
  5. Make gratitude a priority.
    Challenging, but I continue to do my daily happy and gratitude entries.
March is going to continue to be tough as we deal with estate issues and other things out of my control.  I know already of a large number of days when I won't be able to get to the gym, so this is definitely going to be a challenge.  If I can hit my 20 days of workouts, 10k steps a day, and not gaining any weight - I will be elated. ;)
