Last month, I shared with you my word for 2015 – CONFIDENCE.
I also shared with you my word for January – INTEGRITY.
Well now, February is here and after some deep thought, I have a word for these 28 days – FOCUS.
February | Focus
This is what FOCUS will look like for me in regards to Health & Fitness this month:
Health | Focus on swimming; nutrition; recovery nutrition; running schedule; how my body feels; my end goals for triathlon and half marathon
I met with Rhian, my Windsor Tri Nutritionist at the end of January; she’ll be sending me through some information and recommendations to implement. I’ve already started by adding protein shakes into my day after training to help with recovery. I’ve been religiously taking my vitamins too – vitamin D, B complex, black garlic and iron.
Although I’ve been ill, I’ve tried my best to stick to my training plan. This hasn’t been easy, or perfect but I am prepared for the consequences.
In January, my Passion Planner got delivered! I backed this project on kickstarter at the end of 2014 and am happier than ever to have it in my life right now! It helps me to focus on my daily goals, weekly goals, monthly and yearly goals. I get to break everything down into manageable chunks and schedule it in.
I’d advise you to buy erasable pens (I picked up a couple at Muji) as well as a few colours of highlighters. I schedule in my work hours, my workouts and social commitments to see what time I have left to do everything else. It gives me a realistic overview of my week. I’ve also broken down bigger goals such as moving house, and created a timeline as to when I need to get everything done for this to go smoothly!
The monthly reflection for the end of January was thought provoking too. Here are some of the questions for you to ponder…
From 1 – 10, how do you feel overall about the month of January?
What was the most memorable part of January?
What were the biggest lessons you learnt in January?
What or who are you especially grateful for this past month?
Name three things you can improve on this coming month.
