Another Month Down...

Well, it's nearly down anyway. I've lost 1.5 pounds this month. I think I've went too hard on the exercising this month. I've started to get tired now, and think I just need to give myself a little break. So I'm going to tone it down a little on the exercise front for a few days and see what a little rest will do for me.
I've stayed in control fairly well this month on the food front. Nothing major has happened. I'm looking forward to what will happen in April.

Which brings me around to the 2007 challenge. It's time to sign up for April, if anyone is interested. Michelle has the wonderful sign up information posted on the right, so feel free to let her know if you are interested in joining in. She's making some changes to the way it works this month, and I'm excited to see how everything is going to work out.

Also, I have no idea what I should challenge myself to this month. I've done 3x a week exercising, I've done 2x a week strength training, and I've done keeping my food in control on the weekends. This month I'm at a loss as to what to work on. I don't want to set a goal to lose a specific amount of weight because those always backfire on me. So, y'all help me out. Give me some ideas on what I can do, and I'll roll the dice on Saturday and see what I'm doing. Think y'all can help me out here!?!

Hmmmm... maybe you could make your goal about eating or drinking something specific, such as a certain number of glasses of water each day, or a certain number of servings of veggies. Or maybe you could challenge yourself to try one new healthy recipe each week. Or pick a non-weight loss related challenge that's still related to your health, such as read a self-help book each week or meditate once a week.

Do lots of core training!

Thanks for visiting West of Mars. I'm not sure how you found me, but I hope you'll keep coming back. And I'll look in to see how the weight thing is going. I'm a gym rat, myself, so I know where you're coming from.

An increase in vegetable intake? A decrease in saturated fat? Learning to make 5 delicious low-cal meals? Cooking at home a certain number of meals per week?

Any of those sound good to you?

Maybe getting more sleep or rest if you've been doing too much?

Great job on the loss. Congrats. All of the previous are good suggestions in my opinion. Glad I could help:)

Congrats on the loss!

For things to do it depends on maybe something you are having a hard time with, maybe cutting down on sugars, sodium, adding in some water. I think the others have named about anything else I could think of. I have also joined and cant wait!
