March Rewind

Smoopy MarchThe thermometer hit 50 degrees yesterday and I can finally see a good chunk of my backyard. The frozen tundra is receding and I can feel that spring is finally just around the corner! So before I wave goodbye to March, let’s see how things shaped up?

Good things for March:

  • March Movement – I consider my goal to move for 31 days a success. I did take a couple of rest days when I was fending off the beginnings of a cold.)
  • Discovered the Arc Trainer and it was love at first workout!
  • Return to Yoga — a big part of reaching my movement goal was getting back to yoga.
  • Reclaiming my morning routine!

Things I could do without:

  • Yeah…I’ve whined enough about the weather….let’s just move on, shall we?

What’s up for April:

  • BAA 5K — this has become a favorite event to kick off Marathon Weekend!
  • #StripatNight – RnR Vegas registration opens today
  • Just looking forward to things finally feeling like spring…and planning to enjoy every minute of it!

How about you – was March a good month? Any big plans for April?
