So, for the update, continue reading:

1. Fit back into a size 8 and be healthy about it.
a. Work out at least two hours each week

March was not a great month for this. I started doing the stairs occasionally at work, on average once a week. I also went for a walk most Mondays for around forty minutes in total. Not great but definitely better than last month!

b. Stop eating so much junk food. Eat fruits and vegetables instead.

In this aspect I was very very good. I ate occasional treats but not every day anymore and I started drinking smoothies with Greens plus powder and juice of the all natural variety. I also increased how many vegetables I brought with me to work for lunch, and always took extra vegetables with dinner.

2. Pay off the car loan.
a. Find my cheques

Done last month.

aa. Make extra payments every other month

Made an extra payment of 1000$ that went through early March. Loan down to 7600$ as of writing this.

b. Stay within budget

Success and huzzah!!

c. Track spending and budget

Not direct tracking but kept control of it and ensured that enough was saved up to be able to make an extra payment in April.

3. Write more
a. Edit my NaNoWriMo2012 novel to readability and have people read it.

Nope

b. Continue working on the first draft of my other novel

Nope

c. Add new content to this blog and to my Helium.com profile every week.

I did do this, and am currently also migrating my old blog (hosted on Blogger) to this fancy schmancy site with my very own domain name. Love it!

4. Finish 3 of my university courses
a. one at a time, starting with Introductory Composition

Currently working on unit four and five of my course. The plan is to have both of those assignments submitted by the end of April. Unit four had the longest reading of all six units, so now the hardest part will be creating the three essays required by the end of my course.

So that’s it for now! As I mentioned last month, I have been making bi-weekly videos, so if you want to check out my Youtube channel, click here. If you have any questions, tips, suggestions, or anything else, share it below! Thanks for your continuing support!
