October in review

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

(Pictures in this entry were taken during some of my October bike rides!)

October just flew by! I've been busy this month so here is my October in review:

* October habit: Prepare and only eat tupperware meals from home
I read this great article ( zenhabits.net/fitguide/ ) from the website Zen habits this October. It gave a suggestion to focus on one and only one habit per month. I really liked the idea so I chose to focus on a diet-related habit this month. Preparing healthy meals and storing them in tupperware made it much easier to stay on track of my diet this October.

* Total October fitness minutes: 1,694.
My fitness minute goal was set at 1,200. I not only met my goal but hit it out of the park! Outdoor cycling made up the majority of my fitness minutes this month. I kept up with running and lifting on a weekly basis as well.

*October Sparkpeople status: "Hard work mixed with self love and kindness will make October positive, productive, and fun!"
I think I did a great job at focusing on being positive and productive this October. I've been busy working my new job as a gym attendant. This month has been a lot of fun mixed with hard work. October is one of my favorite months and celebrating the autumn weather, colors and Halloween was enjoyable. I had the most fun going on some beautiful October runs and bike rides in the arboretum.

* October weight loss: -11.5lbs. (Start weight: 124, End weight: 113.5)
I'm not too concerned about scale numbers. It's just one measure of progress on the journey to better health and fitness. But it is a nice feeling to see the numbers going down, regardless.

Overall, October was a wonderful month for me. I spent time with friends and family, enjoyed the beautiful autumn colors and weather, ran, biked, lifted, and worked on improving my diet. I am grateful for the opportunities that I have, every day, to live life to my fullest potential. I am moving into November with a positive attitude and excitement!
