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.

May Goals

May

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

April goals check-in

PROPERLY train for and run a half, full and ultra marathon, Miles needed this month: Running the half marathon, a week off to rest then start training for marathon- 77 miles Actual miles run: 2.4 miles.

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!!!!

Breakfast-juice and muffin or toast and coffee (add in a protein of some sort every morning)

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.

Take a few minutes every day to sit in quiet reflection, meditate, and do something spiritual. Change 5 minutes a day to 10 minutes a day and celebrate full and new moon. Out of 30 days I did: none.

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.

I got in one run last week, my goal this week is 3 runs.

Apparently when it rains 1.25+ inches in 24 hours we get a little pond in our backyard. As we get settled we will be filling this in with more dirt.

My friend Amber got me this awesome map! it is so much fun to scratch things off it!! I can’t wait to scratch more!

 

Enjoying coffee on a quiet morning in one of the mugs I bought on my last trip!

Things are slowly getting organized and put away.

I did a little cleaning, also see the pretty flowers Brandon got me for my birthday!

The peas and beans started going crazy so I got them in the ground on Friday and Saturday we had to make an arc, I haven’t had time to see if they all survived, I will do that today after work.

Some of my food creations as of late. Packaged ravioli spiced up a bit with cheese, basil and fresh tomatoes.

Salmon with a mango cucumber salsa and a baked potato with all the trimmings.

Chicken with asparagus and shallots with an olive tapenade.

Got in 2 runs this week! Neither were major runs but I am pretty happy with that. Another one is in the schedule for tonight then we are heading to Brandon’s Brother and SIL house to shower!!!! I get to wash my hair again!

The walls are coming along pretty quickly! I am super excited about that.

Does anybody else do this? Regrow some of their store bought veggies? Green onions regrowing in some water for the win!

My mom bought this for me a few years ago, time to dust it off and put it to work!

Out toilet is in!!!!!! We have a working toilet!

The spinach, iceburg lettuce, peas, and beans are all starting to pop up as well as the onions and after I took this picture the zucchini started pushing through the soil! I am so excited!

How cute is my little girl?! With her totally messed up little bed hahahahaha! New one will be happening soon but she is still ok with this one for now.

She is helping me clear out some of the backyard for planting, and by helping I mean totally getting in the way hahaha! We actually had sun this weekend! It was a beautiful Saturday. There are soooo many worms in the ground in our backyard, is that good or bad for growing food?

Until next time!
