Quote of the month:
The woods are lovely dark and deep, but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep.
I’m very pleased with the results of February.
- First of all: I won Syl’s February challenge. Thank you so much Syl.
- I only missed 1 run this month. The Pilates class I missed was because there was no class because of vacation.
- I have run the highest monthly mileage ever.
- I still love my training plan for my half marathon.
- I didn’t take as much long walks with Bella as I had planned, need to do better on that in March because she deserves it.

Pilates and Strength training
Go as much as possible to Pilates once a week and do a weight training once a week.
March: start with yoga once a week.
February (4 weeks): Strength: 1 Pilates: 2
Goal is to walk at least 1 time a day 30 minutes with Bella. It’s good for me and it’s good for her as she needs to build muscles.
February: 12 out of 28 days. I can do a lot better than this, not for me but for Bella.
Take a long walk once a month in a forest or nature reservation somewhere in Holland with Bella.
We didn’t do this in February, will do two in March.

Final target weight: 70 kg (154 lbs).
Weight on February 1st: 78.4 kg (172.8 lbs)
Weight on March 1stt: 78.7 kg (173.5 lbs)
This months result: + 0.3 kg (+ 0.6 lbs)
Total loss: 10.5 kg (23.1 lbs)
Fat percentage: 40.3 (last month 40.8)
Muscles percentage: 30.4 (last month 30.2)
BMI: 26.3 (last month 26.2)
I had a small gain this month, this happened in the first week of February. After that I’ve been on the same weight for 3 weeks in a row. I’m okay with that because weight is not my first priority at this moment.
I am happy that my fat percentage is lower and my muscles percentage is up. These figures mean more to me right now than the number on the scale.
All things considered it was a good month concerning my weight.
