My kids are on Spring Break this week and since I work at the school so am I. I love Spring Break because we use it not only to get a short overnight trip in somewhere but also because I do some Spring cleaning. I took one whole day to just clean out my room. I cleaned out my closet and gave away three trash bags full of clothes, I feel like I need to go shopping now. The next day I took my kids one at a time and cleaned out their closets and drawers. It is such a nice feeling having everything cleaned out! This is great for our closets but it can be equally helpful in all that we do. Sometimes our lives need a little cleaning out too. I also used Spring Break to reexamine those fitness goals I made at the beginning of the year. We always start the new year so excited and motivated but then we lose that motivation. I have done great exercising about six days a week but my eating and running schedule have been horrible. This week I started meal planning again using mostly clean recipes for my entire family. I plan on Monday to do some prep work for the week and really try to say no to bad choices especially sweets. Also, I am registering for the Boulder Boulder this week so that I have a race to work towards. I think this will help me run more if I know I need to be running a certain distance by a certain time.
What about you, are you still on track with your goals you set at the beginning of the year? What do you need to do to get back on track Or if you are still doing great what can you do to expand on them? Take a little time to reflect on your fitness journey this week and see where it is taking you.
