I shouldn’t be calling this post March reflections, I ought to be calling it March ramblings. That pretty much sums up my month.
For the month of March, I committed to focusing on eats, workout and meditation . I also committed to focusing on cooking simple meals. I am embarrassed to admit that on the first commitment, the story is not any better than what it was in Feb. I had a bumpy start to the month, then I made attempts to settle into a routine but did not turn around, just lost momentum. I did not adapt well to self-inflicted change in work routine and did not try hard enough to work around unanticipated winter weather. It didn’t help that this month was really tight on all fronts – work, kids’ school activities, and others. Long story short – excuses, excuses, and more excuses.
On the second commitment, I am happy to report that I made some progress. I was mindful when it came to planning my meals. I cooked only after emptying what was left over. When it comes to grocery shopping, I have a tendency to overstock than follow a just-in-time inventory. I worked on that tendency this month.
So what’s brewing for April? Again I am going to attempt to focus on eats, workout, and meditation. For workout, this month I am going to see how I can incorporate my dance practice, which is nowhere close to where I wanted it to be. Another goal for this month is reading, which is at an all time low and it makes me extremely sad.I miss the thrill of getting lost in a book.
Now that I am done with my sob story, tell me yours. Where are you with your self improvement goals? What are you going to do differently this month?
