I absolutely can’t believe it is March, but I’ve decided I’m going to give myself a slower month; I think that is what my body has been kind of asking for. As usual, there were more highs than lows, and I’m just enjoying the lovely spring weather.
I was having the worse flare up from mid-last month until the first few weeks in this one. Well, the great news is I have been feeling really awesome. I knew as soon as I started feeling better, I was going to start exercising again. I’ve been on an excellent exercise kick for the last two weeks. In the last week alone, I’ve logged 6 exercise videos 🙂 . I’m excited to keep it up and I have a great workout buddy from church.
I also went to an ESL teacher conference. It made me feel pumped and have a ton of ideas about things I want to be doing in my classroom. I have plans to go to a few more this year. It was great to see grad school friends!
One of the stores that I had stocked with candles for a holiday pop up shop sent back my unsold candles + picture frames with about three pages of tissue paper. Needless to say, I received more damage than I did from sales and I felt very frustrated. I have been really quiet about candles and it is mostly because I just have to take a break. I’ve had some really unfortunate experiences with businesses since I began and a large goal of mine is to like people more and not less 😉 . I’m taking a break and potentially turning my candle business into a holiday pop up shop. Either way, I won’t be doing whole sale or pop ups where I am not explicitly with my stock the whole time.
Fun fact: Devin’s grandpa sings barbshop quartet and Devin’s Mom competes in the female equivalent of it. Because of that, Devin introduced me to how amazing acapella music is 🙂 . This is forever old, but it is one of my favorite acapella mashups from my undergrad university, BYU. And yes, that is alll only voices.
Now for goals 🙂 …
This year has been great for hammering out goals, but not necessarily the ones I have been setting. That kind of makes me laugh, but oh well. I’m looking forward to another great month!
Reviewing goals from February:
- Read scriptures, church talks, or lessons for 31 days straight
- Go to the temple twice
- Lose 5+ pounds
- Finish 3 of any of the following posts: DC, Europe, Mexico
Nope, but I did a lot of work on them! 🙂
Continue cleaning and purging our houseAm I where I want to be? No, but it is definitely a start.
- Read 4 books
Continue updating my Pinterest images in the blog- the new ones are cute!I re-did them all and they look great! Check them out here.
Build up an inventory of 20+ candlesI currently have 22 damaged candles in my inventory. I don’t want to make a ton of candles until I can make up the losses from liquidating them at a major discount.
Goals for March:
- Read 31 chapters of scripture, 10 church talks, and go to the temple 1 time
- Purge every room in our house to simplify more
- Exercise 15 times
- Read 3 books
