Made a cleaning plan. Our house is very large for just three people living in it. Often times, I feel like it just doesn’t get the attention it needs in certain areas. To help with that, I created an easy cleaning plan (stay tuned for that!) so we can all work together to keep it clean.
Ordered Thrift Books. If you have been with me for a while, you will know that my lovely friend Gretchen turned me on to thriftbooks.com. It has been a minute since I have placed an order or really found a read that I want to stick my nose in.
Took a spontaneous trip. I will go more in detail on this soon. This trip really touched my soul, so I am just trying to let myself settled down before I put it all into words. St. Louis, MO and I, however, have now become soul mates.
Things I didn’t do!
Stress on the scale. I had found myself earlier this year obsessing over the scale. If I could just hit this number, I would be happy. If I could get to this number by check in, my coach would be happy. And you know what? It was becoming obsessive. It was becoming everything I didn’t want this journey to be about. So, I worried about other things that mattered, like loving training, etc.
Purge as much as I thought I would. I really wanted to use this month to get rid of the extra stuff I had laying around and frankly, I just didn’t find the extra spare time. Thus, I shall try again next month.
Regret food choices. Some times in the past, I have eaten something and immediately regretted it. St. Louis taught me a lot about food. Good. Whole. Foods. I didn’t regret one food choice I made there.
Things I learned!
More about myself. Hitting the open road with my bestie and friend, I learned so much about what makes me happy, what makes me love harder and how spontaneous I had forgotten to be in my life.
Life continues on. This month is the two year anniversary of my father’s sudden death. I learned that little bit by little bit, life can go on and even though I only made it a ½ a day at work, I made it out of the house, which is better than last year.
Date night is important. Whether you are married, or have been in a committed relationship for some time, date night is always and a necessary idea. More specifically, not talking about kids, family, etc. and learning more about each other is really important.
As I play a little catch up with this past month on youtube and the blog, I am reminded that I still learned so much. Learning and continuing to grow is my goal and I am well exceeding that!
