Long Hair, Don't Care

Two weeks into February (sort of) and I am keeping to my goals.

One goal was to work out three times a week.
I ran three times this week; a three mile on the treadmill, a 6x400 speed workout, and one 5k outside.  I was so glad I decided to go outside.  I missed just running without having to pick a certain pace first, like I do on the treadmill.  I didn't even look at my watch until I knew I was by the turnaround point.

Another goal was to try a new recipe once a week.  I made Lazy Lasagna, which I ate for lunch and dinner all last week.  Today I made lentil loaf that I found on SparkPeople.  I made it a bit differently.  I should have made half the recipe they gave, because I ended up with two loafs.
Here's what mine looked like

I had it with home made mashed potatoes and green beans.

It ended up being okay.  I wouldn't make it again though.  It's just so heavy, and it will take forever to eat all of it.  I'm glad I tried it though.  It's something I've been curious about for a while.

My weight loss goal for February is to be down four pounds.  I am right on track, being down two.  Just two more to go!

My most difficult goal for the month is staying off caffeine.  It's been 9 days and I still feel awful.  I'm crazy tired all day...and a little crabby!  I've been trying to substitute with green tea, but it is not the same.  Just 19 more days!  I'm hoping by then I will start to feel better soon.

How are your February goals going?
