Thoughts on Tuesday, here we go!
Well, I didn't do so great at my 10,000 steps at least twice a week goal.
Week one, bam. Hit it on 2/6 and 2/8 (I used Monday-Sunday as my week so that's why 2/8 was included in week one).
And the other weeks of the month, I didn't hit 10,000 twice in a week. In fact, I didn't hit 10,000 at all after 2/8. It was freezing in February and we decided to cancel our gym membership, so I just couldn't get outdoors like I planned to. Lessons learned? Get in more movement around the house, look into workout DVDs or YouTube channels, and consider walking around the mall in cold temps.
My second goal was to start each day with hot lemon water. I did this nearly every single day. Success! I certainly felt healthier when I did this, but I don't know if I saw any dramatic changes that I could attribute directly to the lemon water. However, I do believe it was healthy so I will likely continue this habit.
The Ja-Vie Cheetah Flat Giveaway: Congratulations to the winner of the drawing, Emily R.! Emily, I will email you so I can get these shipped to your door. I had the BEST time reading through every entrant's happy moments -- baby news, good health updates, job/interview successes, snow day fun, good family moments. All in all, I had 58 emails between Friday and Monday of positive things happening in peoples' lives. Tell me that wouldn't make you a happy person, reading all of that positivity.
Emily, I hope you love your flats ... I know I certainly live in mine! They are perfect to throw on with skinny jeans for a girls night or with yoga pants for errands.
Here are some of my favorite prints, all available on Amazon.

Navy and Khaki (here, presently on sale)
So thank you again for all of your positive, cheery, and uplifting emails. I learned from that little exercise how the smallest personal email can have the biggest, most positive impact. So I am vowing from now on to take the time and make the effort to reach out to friends on a more personal basis. Not just by double-tapping on their Instagram photo or liking their Facebook post, either.
I'm making that my March wellness goal ... and I'm sticking to it.
