5 Foods for February

A coincidental alliteration…

Hardly a revelation, but it is February! I can’t believe how fast January went by. Today, I want to take stock of what I have achieved and what I need to focus on in February.

January has been  good month, running went well, better than expected almost. I even added cross-training and will have a program review with a professional trainer this week.

I really like this running bloggers’ community. I am so positively surprised about the encouragement and support I see here amongst strangers. And so we feel like friends almost. And who knows, some of us may meet at a race one day.

So what didn’t work? Well, I am still struggling with the healthy living part of my personal challenge. I did get a lot better in January, eliminating junk food, focusing on eating balanced and covering all food groups, but am just a little disappointed that I don’t see some of the weight coming off. I am not despairing yet. I will though focus on the following 5 foods this month:

  • flax seeds
  • berries
  • yoghurt
  • whole grains
  • water

I read that these are good foods for a flatter belly. That can’t be a bad goal for February, right?

You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing that we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down.

  1. Liking it!
    My fav breakfast at the moment is proper granola (the natural, sugar free one – I think its called Lizi’s), a couple of dollops of Rachel’s natural Greek style yogurt (I’m really loving the coconut one), plus some cut up berries. Keeps me going for hours and tastes so good.

  2. I am working on a flatter belly as well! I see that you want to add berries to your diet. I have been eating quick-cooking oats w/ a tsp of brown sugar and cut up strawberries for breakfast. It is delicious and the oatmeal gives a good boost of energy to start the day. Happy February!
