My goals for February were to:
Read 2x Books. I was able to get through two books during this crazy month.
- Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl
What an intriguing book! I was very fascinated by the first half of the book as I read through the authors experiences in concentration camps. The second half of the book was more difficult for me as it was much more technical about his psychotherapy theory.
- Everything I Never Told you by Celeste Ng
This was a quick and enjoyable read. Though the subject matter was pretty heavy. It drew me in because I felt like I was trying to solve a puzzle.
Work out 12 times. I did not meet this goal, but I actually feel okay about it. I did manage to squeeze in 8 workouts in February. And while we were traveling Paul and I logged between 15,000-20,000 steps a day. I did a good portion of my steps while lugging around a 25lb baby on my back or on my front while he napped, so that felt like a workout too. While at home, I have continued to do the Fit in 15 series through iFit.
In February I also joined a women's book study that is reading through Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith by Sarah Bessey. Paul and I also joined a church small group that is meeting every other week. Both of these add more to the plate when it comes to scheduling, but for me both foster community and fellowship which is encouraging for my heart.
March feels like a big blank canvas, with plenty of space to make healthy choices, feed my brain, and practice creativity.
For March, my mini goals are:
- Read 3x Books
- Create: I have adult coloring book to enjoy.
- Write 2-3 blog posts
- Work out 15 times (upping the ante)
