February 2020 Recap

Click here to read about my February Goals in full…

Money
Overall debt payments: $1,920.00
Car Loan payments: $810.00

I have sold all the Poshmark clothes that I could and I ended up making around $200.00 total after the app sales and the little things locally. I will take it, because that’s $200.00 I didn’t have before and almost a whole car payment! I did try and list some items on “offerUp” but didn’t get much response – so may hold on to some of the more pricey things and see what I can do.

Staying focused on my debt crushing has been a bit defeating at times (when I feel particularly like I’m somehow missing out on life) BUT I did take a little of my tax return and get some things I wanted and/or had been putting off. It’s balance and I can’t WAIT to share about one of my purchases when it arrives … it is gorgeous and makes me SO happy!

Health & Fitness
Diet:
I am done with the strict counting of Macros and it was TOUGH. It was interesting though to see and helped me a lot. I allowed alcohol back into my regular “diet” (no more Dry January!) so that has been interesting to feel the effects of again!

Workouts:
I’ve been adding jogging into the mix using my guided walk/jog tracks in the Peloton App and I actually find it much more enjoyable than just listening to music! I’ve never been a runner, but I am trying to find what I enjoy, while challenging myself. I found myself wanting to try to jog/walk so I am listening to my body and giving it a go!

Health Overall:
Been feeling good – but I felt how the pounds were creeping back up (I noticed a lot in my torso/midsection) so I’m trying to curb that a bit with the jogging and ramped up exercise. My blood labs will be done in early April – so trying to stay focused and make sure that I am improving, or OUT of the diabetic range by then!

Other
– 6:15am morning routine – I have kept this and I still am by no means a “morning” person – but I am finding it a bit easier. Coupled with morning workouts, I am not doing too badly and still sometimes go back for a short nap if I’m feeling unusually depleted, after my coffee, which helps the “power nap” feel even better! The early wake up call allows me a little flexibility, which I like and shall continue.

– 10 minutes per day of reading/listening to an audio book or podcast. I’ve been really enjoying some new audio books (High Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard and Crucial Conversations by Kerry Patterson). I hadn’t paid attention to it before BUT Audible allows trade ins (within a year of download) so I swapped out some books I wasn’t feeling and got a whole bunch of great new ones! I had been listening to a lot of the same ones on repeat, so it’s refreshing to get some new ideas!

Travel
My upcoming trips to Seattle & Las Vegas in March 2020 have been my current focus – so no trips taken in February. Been eyeballing lots of good travel deals though and itching to book something!

What are your goals for March 2020? Spring is coming soon – do you do anything specifically “seasonally”?
