Today we are saying goodbye to February. It’s been a horrendous month for me but I’m here ready for the #FeelGoodLinky and ready to confess my sins.
How was February for me?
I’m ending February not actually losing any weight. I weighed at the middle of the month and had gained a (not so) wonderful 5lb. Two days later my period arrived and I’ve been too afraid to stand on the scales since. I sucked it up this morning and weighed in at the same I weighed this time last month.
I’ve had an okay-ish food month. I’ve had a major sweet tooth during the two week period (which really doesn’t help with staying the same). I am making an effort to make more healthy food choices.
I have managed to stay under 2000 calories quite easily most days but we had a takeaway a few times which took me over my limit.
I’ve done well with my water intake. There have been a few days I’ve made my goal but most days I’ve just been close to target.
I love using the FitBit to track my movements. Last week I made it out on 2 walks. One was around 3 miles along the coastal path, the other was to the Castle (around 2 miles).
I’m averaging around 8000 steps a day still.
Me and sleep still aren’t getting on well. I’m going to bed early most nights but I’m really restless. Saturday night, I woke up a 4.50am and couldn’t get back to sleep… much to my annoyance. I had slept for just 4 hours and 51 minutes.
My resting heart rate seems to have lowered over the last month. I’m resting at 66bpm although my heart health is still around 24-28. I don’t suppose it’s going to increase much until I start getting fitter.
Now, I’m handing it over to you! Link up all your health, fitness and weight loss posts underneath.
