March Goal

Two months down in my year of self-love, and boy am I happy that March has arrived. The end of winter is finally in sight.  My gym started putting up a sign every Monday morning with a count down until Spring; we started at 74 days. Woof.  74 days sounded like an eternity.  Now we are at 19!!! We got this!

With the beginning of a new month comes a new goal.  The whole30 and the gratitude journal went great. In fact, I’m still doing both- just not as strictly this time.  If I forget to write an entry or if I choose to have a piece of chocolate it’s all good.  It’s a lifestyle, and I make the rules.  Now on to March.

January –whole 30

February – Gratitude Journal at night

March- Read The Gratitude Diaries by Janice Kaplan

April– 5 minutes of meditation each day

May– Compliment someone different every day

June– Buy a month of yoga at a new studio

July– Tap into creativity (new fitness classes, art, Zumba, kareokee, games, nature, etc)

August– Treat yourself month (bath, nails, compliments, me date, take a nap, massage, Bravo, etc)

September– Smile first thing in the morning and last thing before bed

October– 30 things I love about myself (I turn the big 3-0 this month-gulp)

November-No negative talk November (myself, others, work, etc)

December– Give back (to students, family in need, volunteer, family, husband, etc)


Reading a book may not sound like much of a goal to many; however, with work, grad school, a workout schedule, and lots of cooking, reading rarely happens.  This is a book I’ve been wanting to read for a while, so I’m committing to reading and finishing this within the month.


The book has excellent reviews, and I’m excited for this challenge. It’s about time I read a book that isn’t for work or school. This one is for me.  Has anyone read it before?
