I know February is the shortest month, but to me, it always feels so long! Sometimes I think I suffer from seasonal affective disorder. By the end of February, I am just at my wits end with the cold and the dark. I need more sun! I did just notice this week that is has been light out by the time I get to work (6am) and it is still light out when I get home (4pm) which has been a huge boost. Even the smallest amount of natural Vitamin D makes me happy!
Running- I finally ran outside this past weekend 🙂 It was amazing. Even if it was cold and windy, it was still awesome. I am so tired of the dreadmill! I plan to run outside this weekend as well, although the weather is going to be a bit colder. I am pretty excited that I have less than two months until my first half of the year. More excited that I am going to be super prepared for running than I was this past November!
Ballet/Barre– Last night was the first class I missed since starting. My legs were a little sore from my Sunday run, mostly from the terrain change I think, and I just didn’t want to push it. Barre class continues to kick my ass in the best possible way. I really think this is my favorite work out. I am so excited to be able to go extra over spring break!
Nutrition- I have done really well. I am very happy with how my nutrition is going. The pounds aren’t dropping but the inches are and best of all, I feel better!
Sleep- My goal over spring break is to get 8-9 hours of sleep each night.
Other life events-
-I am on Spring Break from March 2-17. Wooohooo! I swear Spring Break is for adults. It is so needed. Ours is quite long because we have international students. They travel home to 17 different countries and 6 different continents! Having a full two weeks gives them real quality time to visit with their families. Even though I will waitress during this time, and pick up extra shifts, it is still a chance to sleep in. And for that, I am so grateful!
-In three week, at this very time, I will be landing in Mexico 🙂 One of my very best friends is getting married and having a simple ceremony on the beaches of the Riviera Maya! Of course, this comes on the heels of my Spring Break, so I wasn’t able to take the full five nights. This will be a whirlwind trip of only three nights. Nonetheless, I am excited for the tropical weather and time with some of my good friends!
I’ll end with this, which I just absolutely loved:
