Happy Friday! It’s a new month and it’s time to set new goals! No matter how crazy everything gets, I always like to set monthly goals because I find that they help to keep me focused.
These were my goals for February:
Actively participate in the OTF Transformation Challenge
I’ve been hitting all my workouts, participating in the weekly activities and interacting with teammates through our group chat. Of course there’s always room for me to do better when it comes to nutrition. Maybe giving up pizza for Lent will help me with this…slightly, lol. Overall I have been making healthier choices, but my downfall is always late night snacking.
Improve bedtime routine
I’ve tried a few things to improve my bedtime routine but it’s not 100% yet. Some nights I sleep well and other nights I wake up at 3 and can’t get back to sleep. The one constant I have done on weeknights is to stop viewing my phone or TV at least 30 minutes before bed. That has made it easier for me to fall asleep, but not necessarily stay asleep.
Here are my goals for March:
PR the Orangetheory Fitness DriTri
The Orangetheory Fitness DriTri is the weekend of March 19-20. I already signed up for a morning slot on March 19th. I’m already thinking of how I can shave a few seconds off my previous PR from September. Honestly if I finished 5 seconds faster I would be happy. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the weather will be decent since you never really know what you’ll get in March.
Try something new
I feel like I’m in a bit of a rut and every day feels like Groundhog Day. I need to try something new to mix things up a bit. I’m not sure what that something “new” will be, but maybe it will lead to a new hobby. Who knows!
If you set monthly goals, what are your goals for March?
I’m linking up with Darlene, Michelle, Renee, Jenn and Zenaida for Fit Five Friday!
I have that 3 am wake up issue too. I’ve been terrible about being on my phone late – need to reel that back in!
I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you for the weather on the 19th.
Looking forward to what you decide to try!
The 3am wake up is so frustrating, and also so random.
Thanks for the well wishes for nice weather on the 19th!
Typically I sleep pretty well but last night was horrendous! All the best with your quest to PR the Dri Tri. Such a fun event. Can’t wait to hear what you choose to shake thins up a bit. A solid routine is a good thing though!
I’m floundering with goals which means I’m failing with my plan to be more intentional with my life this year. ~sigh~. Maybe now that the pandemic is “over” I’ll get my act together.
Congrats on your OTF goals. I do miss it, but am not ready to go back yet.
Totally understand about not being ready to go back to OTF yet, but if it makes you feel better, our class sizes are significantly smaller now than they were pre-Covid (at least the weekday classes anyway)
Deborah Brooks says
I am definitely a creature of habit so doing similar workouts each week works for me. I also would be happy with even a small PR on my half the same weekend as your event. Good luck to both of us! Not sleeping well is the worst hope that gets better for you
Keeping my fingers crossed that we both get PRs the weekend of the 19th!
Zenaida Arroyo says
For some weird reason I wake up at 4am to use the bathroom. Then I feed my cats or they will not leave me alone. Sometimes I go back to sleep and other times I stay awake till it is time to get ready for work. It is awful. Good luck on the 19th!
It’s so frustrating! I would love to just sleep straight threw the night – maybe one day, lol.
Kimberly Hatting says
I’m excited to hear how the Dri Tri goes! Yeah, the March weather is all over the map…it’s been warm, but OMG the wind was psychotic ((again)) today! I hope Momma N plays nice with the weather on the 19th for you 😉
We haven’t had too much wind this week – I hope it stays that way!
Judy @ Chocolaterunsjudy says
I generally stop drinking liquids by about 6 pm. Most nights I do sleep through the night, but there are still nights I have to get up, too. Most of the time I don’t fall back asleep either!
It sounds like the night time snacking is just a habit. Either that or you’re not eating enough throughout the day! So one crazy trick I’ve heard (it’s usually not a problem for me, so I haven’t tried it) is to just switch up where you’re sitting at night. LMK if you try it & it helps!
Nice goals, Kim!
I think it’s a little of both – I know I need to get in more protein during the day, but I also associate snacking with watching TV, lol. I will try your trick to see if it helps me!
Im getting up every day super early because of the puppy. It’s hard to get back to sleep and I’m beat.
I don’t really have big goals for the month. Right now, I’m just getting through each day and pushing to improve.
I think that’s a perfect goal for now since I’m sure the new puppy is taking up a lot of your free time!
I’ll be interested to hear if Judy’s little trick will help you- it sounds like a good idea! I’ll also be interested to find out what “new” thing you try this month. Good luck with the DriTri!
Thanks so much Jenny!
