March was a blur! I can’t believe April is coming up. I had a few goals for March so let’s check in to see what’s ready to cross off the list.
Clean 2 bedrooms. I need a functioning guest room. That came in quite handy when both of us were sick. But I had to crawl over boxes and clutter to get to a spare bed. Also, my office/training room is so full of stuff, there is very little productivity going on. I have spring break coming up and those days are going to be busy with FINALLY getting this brand newly-built house in order from loft to garage.
DONE!! I cleaned both rooms, moved some boxes upstairs to the loft, and organized a lot of clothes and linens. The garage is now empty and both of us are using it for our vehicles.
Put up Christmas dishes. Yes, they are still out. The mug cabinet is still festive. I need to start my Rae Dunn collection and bring my bowls out.Finished!! I have my regular dishes in the open cabinets and bowls in my bowl shelf. Pics coming soon for a house update post.
- More recipes! I hope to get in 2 a week, with the focus back on Paleo and Keto. Spoiler alert: The only difference between my paleo recipes and keto recipes is dairy—cheese, heavy cream, and butter. That’s it. Paleo is still more of a foundational, ancestral, sustainability mindset. Keto is strictly dietary.
Still in progress.
Specific book posts on the book page. I have really taken off with the reading challenge and I’m enjoying the book reviews on goodreads. This is probably the biggest change I’ve made this month. I actually have a sub blog for books only. I have custom sidebars for those specific posts and they are posted by category. I changed my header image and even my site name. I’m really enjoying the early access to review copies and writing/talking about books. I also joined another book subscription, Book of the Month. I love that I get to pick my books!
- Meal prep after spring break. I’m feeling so much better and I need to get back to real food instead of living off coffee and bacon. Not that there’s anything wrong with coffee and bacon. I just might need some green things here and there. Meh. I cooked a couple of weekends for lunch, but not fully on the keto train, yet.
- Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville is coming up in late April. I have 6 weeks. But running is not going that great with multiple rounds of flu and pneumonia. I’ve backed my goal to finishing the darn thing. One day, I would like to set an actual PR goal.
Not gonna happen. Running with the asthma issues is excrutiatingly slow. Not sure if I’m going to try for Nashville.
- Strength: I have a few options for this. Morning boot camp at the gym. My own at-home workouts upstairs in the loft with weights. The weight room at the gym, depending on the crowds. I’m not fighting meat heads and pink barbell Instabunnies for a squat bar. Someone will get wig-snatched and it won’t be me. Still in progress.
It looks like I now have the house in order, maybe April needs to be focused on getting ME in order. Bring on the spring!
