Not bad for a fat girl

Over the Hump

So this tiniest month is turning out to be sort of a mountain for me. It’s nothing terribly serious, just a bunch of smallish things, not the least of which is a bout of allergies that is bringing me down. In fact the other day my principal took one look at me and sent me home.

I fretted for about three minutes over what would become of my students for the rest of the day (he, and my fabulous teammates, handled it) then I headed home to bed. Ah sleep. Sweet sweet relief from the sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, and wheezing. I wish I could sleep more.

Needless to say, I didn’t get all my steps that day. No dance party on my wrist that day (that’s what I call it when my Fitbit celebrates me reaching my daily step goal).  I fell woefully short and didn’t give it another thought, until the next day when it was too late. I felt like a failure. After all, my step goal isn’t that huge. I could have walked around my house in a sneezy runny nosed fog, right? I suppose, but the more I thought about it the easier it became to forgive myself for missing one day and move on.

I’m still not feeling great. Something in the air is kicking my butt, even with my arsenal of remedies, but I’m up and about again. I’m making my step goals and keeping positive, and looking ahead to March. Why March? Spring break!

How are you doing with your tiniest month challenge? Any obstacles? Hurdles? Road blocks? Keep going warriors! We’re on the downward side of the month, you can do it!

Tiniest Month Challenge Update

71l05uragql-_sx355_

February is the tiniest month, so I figured I could handle a challenge that was only for this month. I decided to challenge myself to get my Fitbit step count every day in February, and so far so good.
Last Saturday I almost didn’t make it. I was battling a horrible allergy attack all day long, sneezing and wheezing and generally feeling miserable, but I did it.

I even bought myself an assortment of different colored bands for my Fitbit, because although I love magenta, it just doesn’t quite go with everything!

How are you doing with your challenges?
