Goal Check In: March 2018

March has been a long month. In many ways it has gone by quickly, but in others it has lasted forever, particularly because Steven is in busy season. Having a CPA hubby always means that spring is a time I get to see him very little. Thankfully we make the most of the time we do get to spend together. In an effort to remain accountable here is my goal check in for the month:

  • Drink eight glasses of water a day 
  • Journal everyday
    • Still keeping up with both of these daily goals! They are part of my daily routine now.

  • Workout four days a week
    • I am working out daily now! Between using the Sweat App by Kayla Itsines, going to the gym, running, and walking I have grown to love the time I spend focusing on nothing but my workout and either a killer playlist or audio book. 
    • If you are interested in my workout playlist you can find it on Spotify here
  • Cook a new meal once a week
    • It felt like I lived in the kitchen this month because of Whole30. I cooked a ton this month, but tried to stick to some of our tried and true recipes. I did make a few different dishes, you can see my favorite Whole30 recipes here
  • Work from a coffee shop one day a week
    • Nope. Didn't make it out at all this month. I wanted to avoid temptation while doing Whole30 and I knew I'd want a vanilla latte if I was sitting at a coffee shop for a few hours.
  • No TV or Social Media one day a week
    • While we haven't done this to the extent I meant it, we have been a lot better about getting out and doing other things rather than just sitting in front of the TV!

  • Read two books a month
  • Try a new restaurant
    • When we first decided on doing Whole30 in March it was because Steven is in busy season at work and we didn't have any travel plans. I ended up going on a quick trip to San Antonio for my friends proposal during the second week of Whole30 and ate at two new to me restaurants. 
    • San Antonio 
      • Burgerteca: While I didn't have the full experience since I basically just ate a chicken patty #whole30, my family all really enjoyed their burgers, fries, and ice cream. The restaurant was super cute and all the food smelled amazing. I will definitely go back when I can truly enjoy their amazing looking and according to my family tasting burgers. 
      • Gloria's Latin Cuisine: I had the grilled shrimp with veggies and it was tasty. I personally prefer my own home cooked shrimp but for a meal out to celebrate with friends it was a good Whole30 option. I heard the margaritas were great! 
  • Plan a girls night
    • My trip to San Antonio was basically a girls weekend! I headed back to SA to be a part of one of my bridesmaids and best friends proposal! Here now fiancĂ© keyed a couple of us into his plans and we helped him execute a beautiful proposal. Check out the BFF / proposal photo shoot! 
  • Send birthday cards: I failed so bad. I have both cards and just never put them in the mail. Going to try and be way better going forward. 

  • Run a 10k - Completed on February 24, 2018 
    • Finished my first timed 10k in 59:15.6 mins! 
  • Run a half marathon
    • I am working my way up to a half marathon. I am currently working my way through a 10k to 15k program! I signed up for the Houston Marathon in January of 2019 so I am training slowly but surely! 
  • Complete a Whole30
    • We started Whole30 on March 5, 2018 and will be done with it and our reintroduction days by April 13, 2018. It has been quite the undertaking! I will have a review about my experience once we are done. 
  • Plan our 30th birthday party
    • I told my friends to save the date for December 8 so there's that! Other than a date I need to start planning - time is flying by!
