I have actually not done terrible the last weekish.

Last weekend I was in Cali with my friend and we went on a 1.75ish mile walk on Friday and a 3 mile hike on Saturday and during the week Brandon and I went on 3 runs.

Trip to southern California

It’s been a minute since I posted, a lot has been going on here so there will be a few posts coming.

First let’s talk about food. Found some food carts near my work.

Can you say flipping delicious!!!!!

Then it was off to cali!

We did some beach walking

And some friend visiting

And some drinking lol

The main reason we were in Cali was the wedding of my oldest friend! I was honored to be a bridesmaid.

Getting all done up for the wedding

How amazing is that dress!!!!!

I can’t believe I’ve known her since i was 2!!!!!

Then we did some family visiting. He met several family members for the first time.

My family loves to play tile rummy.

Then it was back home and back to real life.

May Goals

The goals for the year broken down for this month:

1) Start running again

2) eat healthy

3) Stop buying things until you organize what you have

Take a few minutes every day to sit in quiet reflection, meditate, and do something spiritual. 10 minutes a day, full moon and new moon and celebrate May Day!! Which is today.

Plant a minimum of 3 plants a week.

Continue to work on and grow my relationship with Brandon. Outing every weekend, cook dinner together, and garden together

I really don’t thinl the June marathon is going to happen with buying the house and getting the flu and now I have i don’t even know what. We might have to change this toba fall or spring 2019 marathon. But that is life man.

Revamp my diet and STICK TO IT!!!!

Midmorning snack- Slimfast or smoothie

Dinner- Anything I want as long as it is make at home

After dinner- tea or hot chocolate, popcorn is fine

How did this go? Nope. Being sick means I’m not eating much lol. And I ordered my bridesmaides dress one size smaller and managed to fit into it so yay.

Get A’s in all my classes this year. –Get off to a good start in classes well I took this quarter off to move and deal with my brothers death so no grades right now.

Drop two clothing sizes, go from a 10 to a 6. Maintain size 8 ??? Still at a 10. But a tiny tiny but smaller 10.

Stop overspending!!!! Keep no money on you, put at least $20/month in accts and at least $75 in savings Total saved: $4.

4 meals: none.

Total number of time gardening together: actually together not much, concurrently a few hours lol

Read 1 non-school book a month

Books read this month: actually i have read a good dozen books with my kindle unlimited. I need to do some boom reviews.

My garden is growing

In our backyard we have a holly tree, we are going to trim down a lot of it because it like almost everything else is a little out of control but I love it! What great decoration! Come Christmas time I am going to deck my house out in Holly!!!!

Black Beauty zucchini has survived the transplanting process, I think 4 of my 5 plants are thriving, the 5th is still touch and go.

Sugar snap peas! Also doing great, we are going to grow them up the fence.

Our pear tree is starting to grow!! Look at all those little green nubs! I am stoked cause for like 2+ weeks it didn’t do anything and I was a little worried.

Just bought this to accompany the vegetable bible book my mom gave me. So now I know what to do and when then the book my mom gave me a few years ago goes in depth on each plant. They work great together!

And I bought my first gardening hat. Currently I am only outside like 2 hours a week so I am not wearing it yet ( I need all the vitamin D I can get) but come summer this will be my skin’s best friend!

Can’t wait to keep sharing more with you!

Some Tidbits on a Tuesday

This is how broke people trim their hair hahahaha. I have actually done this for years, I only pay for a haircut like once every 2 years. Since my hair is curly you can’t really tell if I don’t cut it totally even!

Got in a little run yesterday with the pup, it was beautiful out! I did couch to marathon day 3. It was a 5 min warm-up walk, then 7X of run 3 min, walk 2 min then 5 min cool down walk. Of course someone who runs faster is going to get farther than the 2.36 miles I got hahahaha but it was good. 1 run of a minimum of 3 this week, done!!!!!!!!

After my run I checked on my peas, beans and zucchini I had planted on Friday before the crazy storm hit here on Saturday and turned our yard into a pond. They survived!!! Everything was still upright and growing, my spinach looked a little worse for the ware so we will see what happens with that.

I got the email notification and my tomato plants and herb plants have shipped so I will probably need to plant those this weekend and I think some of my other starts are ready to get in the ground so it will be a busy planting weekend this weekend.

I also made some potato leek soup which I have a pictures and a little video but of course they are on my tablet and not my phone so I will post those tomorrow.

The BF and I avoided housework and watched a movie together. Housework piles up fast. Today or tomorrow I need to get on that hahaha.
