After spending the month of January organizing and creating some much needed space in my head and in my home, the next logical step that popped up was my physical well-being. My lovely lady lumps.
Thus, dear readers (ahem, Courtney), I give you Feelgood February. A whole month (or, what's left of it) dedicated to improving my overall physical well-being and the art of being well. That means making an effort to eat better, get active, and focus on the things that allow me to think, feel and look my best.
Here are my goals at a glance:
Move more: Exercise at least four times a week. Stay consistent.
Eat better (and maybe a little less): The Mister and I are going to embark on a 21-day nutritional cleanse to find a happy balance in our eating habits. I'm also on the elusive hunt to marry the everlasting partners of feelgood: diet and exercise. I can usually do one or the other well, but never both. I'd like to make February the month where I fire on all cylinders and do both. I'd also like to improve upon my most dreadful downfall, the eating of the sweets. Did someone say sweets?
Think pretty. Feel pretty: I don’t know about you, but if stuff ain’t right in my head, it shows. My goal this month is to pretty up my thoughts with positivity and then pretty up myself for good measure. The mind-body connection is yet another perfect marriage for those seeking the feelgood. Also, and I have to type this aloud: sweatpants and fleece jackets are a no-no in Feelgood February unless I’m headed to a workout or returning from one. No excuses. Elastic waistbands be damned!
Bring sexy back: Feelgood February is also about embracing my femininity. I recently spent the weekend with one of my bestest lady loves and received a loud and clear reminder to embrace the sexy. It does wonders for a woman's confidence and demeanor. Feeling sexy is for me, although I’m sure the Mister will have no objections. Sexy is a state of mind and it has nothing to do with a short skirt and too much makeup. It has everything to do with feeling good about oneself.
So, there you have it, my intentions and focus for Feelgood February. Of course, my goals will look drastically different than yours because you're you and I'm me!
Tell me, what could you stand to work on in Feelgood February? What does feeling good mean to you and how do you facilitate it? The lines are open. Holler!
