Warmer Weather is Just Around the Corner...

Hi darlins'! It's great to see ya here!

It's almost a full week into March and I'm so excited the weather is going to turn for the better soon. This weekend it's supposed to get up into the high 60s -- HOORAY!!!

What's something else to be excited about you ask? Well, solid progress on some goals is a start ;)

Goal Update

#6packMarch Challenge: This is a new one! So far, I've been doing a good job of remembering to get in these daily ab sets. Of course it's still early days, and the prospect of doing that many sit-ups & push-ups in a row in a few weeks is a daunting benchmark (but I'm so up for it!).

HIIT Workouts: I've only done one tabata interval session since I first posted about wanting to try more of these workouts. There's definitely room for improvement there, but I loved it when I tried it. Doing intervals on a treadmill is a little frustrating, so I may get a running watch (exciting!) so I can try these outside in the nice weather soon.

Improving Daily Fitness Habits: The #6packMarch challenge is definitely helping with this goal, and I'm pretty proud of the small improvements I make every day :)

Drinking more water: Someone should tattoo this on me, maybe then I would be better about slugging my H2O!

Speaking of drinking more water, yesterday my optometrist reminded me that drinking plenty of water is even more important since my eyes are prone to dryness. You see, Nashville is situated in kind of a basin and allergens are everywhere here. I wasn't aware of this before I moved here last June, but Nashville is one most allergen-filled cities in the country! With spring and more warm weather approaching -- my allergies are about to go to a whole new level here. After months of serious eye irritation and dryness (yes, it's been oh so fun dealing with blind workouts sans contacts) my eye doc was able to tell me in < 5 minutes that I could fix my eye issues by drinking more water, taking some allergy and eye drop medication and a healthy dose of mercury-free fish oil supplements. Wowza! I can't wait to start heeding her advice and seeing clearly with contacts again!!

I hope your day is starting off great too! Best of luck with all of your goals and workouts for the day. You can do it, here's a little motivation to help :)
