One Month at a Time: March Food & Fitness Goals

In January, I decided to try the Forks over Knives diet for 12 weeks. It lasted 4. And though I did lose a little weight, it wasn’t the easiest lifestyle for me to stick with (mostly because it took a lot more planning and food prep time).

In February, I still ate a fair number of fruits and vegetables, but I got off the low-dairy/meat concept and basically felt like I was just surviving. It was a busy month.

For March, I’ve been looking at various options and I thought I’d try something similar to the Paleo or Primal diet. It’s a wheat-free diet that limits sugars and other things. My cousin has lived this way for a couple years now and does really well with it, so I thought I’d give it a try. Here’s an overview of the Wheat Belly Diet. We went to the grocery store to stock up a bit and Bryan’s going to try to do this with me (though he admitted he might have a sandwich wrap occasionally).

And because my exercise routine has been far from stellar, I found this March Mad Abs Fitness plan that I’m going to try to add to daily (or almost daily) walks:

Who’s with me? Happy March!

    That is awesome Melissa 🙂 I have read about the Paleo diet and it sounds good to me. I have been doing Zumba 2-3 times a week and I love it so much. Trying to get in cross-training on my spin bike and our neighbor gave us their like-new total gym which i absolutely LOVE. It is awesome. I am shooting for total gym / spin 3x week and Zumba 2 to 3x a week. I have been trying to get back into the 5 factor fitness plan and diet. I did it before I was pregnant with Eden and was at my healthiest weight on it. A few things on there I just won’t do like eat fat free cheese (gag) or any artificial sweeteners. Let me know how Paleo works out for you. I am not sure I could stay on track with it cooking for a fam of 4 though. 🙂
