Alright, it happened. I blinked and my month to celebrate my birthday ended in seconds. Honestly I had to go look up what my goals were for February.
Honestly I made them easy on myself, but I failed miserably on one.
I think early in the month we caught the plague, or allergies from the desert spring? Seriously no clue but we have been snot filled, and I can’t even remember if I took ANY photography quizes- Which is bad. Catch up March? Crap..
Workouts however have been going well! I can almost run a full lap at a decent pace without wanting to die right away. I would like to start working on strength training, but for now have given TV workouts a go. Usually holding the toddler I am convinced weighs 50 lbs. ( more like 30?) Because he finds it hilarious and cries if I don’t hold him why I am trying to do the workout. Double duty over here.
As far as my birthday, It was a wonderful time celebrating with my mom, getting gifted a 90 minute massage from heaven, and just fun exploring our town. It really was nice to relax and enjoy her visit, as well as celebrate 29!
- I am going to Make a Schedule. I need help managing my time! I am hoping making a schedule for myself, not dictated 110% by the baby or my husbands work schedule will help me get back on track with my class, my to -do list, and dreams. Y’all I am the BIGGEST dreamer with notebooks and iPhone notes full of ideas- that if I would just put some effort and organized time towards I would be SO proud of myself. This would also help in my continued self care, which I actually feel like I am still doing great in since January! Habits are forming!
- Speaking of self care.. I am going to do a full Korean Skin Care routine. It is multiple steps with emphasis on self care AM and PM I have been slowly purchasing items, and trying them here or there over the past few months and finally have all the products to do it! I purchased a Clinique skin care system 6 or 7 months ago and while it cleared my dry skin up- I still have very blotchy, red, breaking out skin that still struggles with an oil slick or dusty desert depending on what part of my face you land on. I have read what feels like every Pinterest article on the routine, and a friend with similar skin helped me in which items to Amazon prime to myself, and tonight was DAY ONE! I can already tell my face is going to be like ARE YOU KIDDING ME because I went from just double cleansing to the full routine. Oops!
- Read 4 books. I have a pile of magazines, and 3 half read physical books on my desk at this very moment. I also just bought a new book The Magicians, because not only do I love the show- this is my jam. I may have 10 started books that are not finished on my kindle/audiobooks as well. It is not even that I do not love the books- It is back to step one. The ability to time manage my life and make a priority list. I can blame this on birthday sugar comas, and laundry up to my ears- but it is mostly just unfocused use of my time.
I am still pinching myself! I am absolutely shocked that I was able to join the RockNBlog team! It is pretty funny I was JUST talking to my mom today about doing Rock N Roll Las Vegas again, as we have talked about doing this race over the years. I honestly never thought as a slow as a turtle mom with a stroller I could join some of my favorite runners who I follow for inspiration. Then I got the email! Ah! *pinch pinch pinch *
