Happy February!

I have been a lazy blogger. No 'Five for Friday' this past week. No weekend posts.
L-A-Z-Y. I blame it all on my “not so lazy” eating and moving habits of the past month.

I have been moving more and eating less this month. M & I are on a mission to get lighter and move faster for the half marathon in May and our lives have been taken over with healthy meals and trips to the gym. I feel better. My pants fit better. The stress I was experiencing in November/ December is non-existent. I am even running better this week. We aren't adhering to any plan in particular but we are cutting calories, watching our portions and making exercise a priority. We have our first weigh in tomorrow. Then I get to eat some treats on the weekend. I am pumped. I won’t go into too many details but my gluttony will satisfy some of the cravings I’ve been having for the past 30 days. I won’t destroy all my hard work but I need this to get me through February. And then there’s shopping in March!

In other news, today is my 8 year dating anniversary with M. It's hard to believe that it's been that long but it has. He doesn't 'observe' this anniversary-he figures our wedding anniversary trumps this date and his stance is that he only celebrates one date (less to remember). But, it does mean that I do get to celebrate Valentine's day which has always been lumped into anniversary celebrations. Our plans are to go out for dinner at a little bistro in Westburo. Yummy!


February is shaping up to be a crazy month! M is heading to Toronto this weekend to pick up J. Our friend Mark is coming next weekend from St. John's. Then we have a long weekend for family day and another one of our friends, coincidentally another Mark, will be here to visit. Our house will be a hotel for the month of February!

I'm pumped! What does February hold for you?

    February is the start of moving more and eating less for me too. I'm doing well on the eating part - just not so good on the moving part
