My Favorite Things: March

March 23, 2017

 Just like that, March is here and almost over! Crazy, crazy, crazy...

 

March was a overwhelming better for me personally than February was - yes, February had some high points, but overall, March has been just what I've been waiting for! So, without further ado, let's jump into what I'm into this month:

 

1. GT's Synergy Kombucha

 

Kombucha is a fermented tea beverage that contains probiotics and other beneficial components for gut health. I've been drinking a variety of different flavors from the GT's Synergy brand and loving all of them! There is no added sugar after the fermentation process, which is what I really like about the kombucha.

 

2. A Fitness Journal

 

I recently started writing down my workouts in a fitness journal, keeping track of weights, reps, sets, and exercises that I'm completing each week. This has been really helpful for me as I continue to gain strength each week (even hitting a 195lb deadlift PR last week!). I use a fitness journal specifically, but honestly any notebook would work!

 

3. 1 Minute Burnouts

 

Also with regards to my workouts, I've been adding 1 minute burnouts of a movement at the end of a superset (2 movements back to back) to really push my muscles past their breaking point. My favorites have been 1 minute of bar bicep curls, squats, walking lunges, upright row, or shoulder press.

 

4. Lent

 

As a Catholic, Lent started March 1st (perfect timing!) and runs for 40 days until Easter Sunday. I've been using Lent as the push I needed to spend more time at church outside of Sunday mass. I've been stopping at least once a week to just sit in an empty church for 10-20 minutes and be with my thoughts and with God. There's a church 3 minutes from work, so literally, I have no excuse! I hope to continue this practice going forward even after Lent ends.

 

How has March been for you? Are you ready for spring? Sunshine and wonderful weather are not far off!
