May was a busy month, but a good one! Summer weather arrived, work picked up, and we made a trip out to the east coast to visit my in-laws. All in all it was a great start to the summer! Here’s how it went for me and my to-do’s:
You can check out my original post about it here
More reading, less internet-ing – It was probably half and half this month, but I did start and finish a whole book in May so I’m calling it a success. And I have a few more lined up for the summer months.
Make a year-in-our-life photo book – I finished shooting the roll of film that I started in April (March?) so now I just need to get it developed and I can put those photos into my book.
Meal planning – Still doing my weekly method and it’s been pretty succcessful. Yay!
Get Moving – In April I said how I started a Couch to 5K program with this app and I’m proud to say I have no done it consistently for 4 weeks! Although we were away for a week at the end of May so I put it on pause then, but now I’m back at it. I really hate running, but I love that this is designed for 3 days a week and combines walking and running. I wanted to do some other workout on the non-running days, but so far I haven’t found the motivation for that. Hopefully I will soon ;)
Blogging – I’ve been listing to Elise Blaha’s podcasts, Elise Gets Crafty, alot lately and they’ve inspired me to blog with more purpose. You may not have noticed a difference in my posts, but I’m trying to focus more on posts/things that I really like and am proud to post rather then just posting for consistency’s sake. I know that is important too, but I’d rather have great content then a lot of mediocre content. Hopefully that’s coming through :)
Drinking water everyday – Somewhere near the middle of the month I somewhat purposely took a break from this one. I’ll be honest – I haven’t noticed a single difference in how I feel, my skin/hair/appearance, nothing. And I still really hate drinking water. So I’m putting this on hold and will maybe come back to it again later.
