Reading – I have to say that I am LOVING getting back into reading!!! I am currently reading a novel that I’m enjoying and an autobiography as well as a comic. This is the first time that I have ever read a comic and my husband is celebrating the idea that he might succeed in turning me into a full-blown nerd like himself. I like that the more time I spend reading the less time I spend on my phone or the television. Not that I spent a whole lot of time on them, but reading is still better.
Working Out – I have still been pretty consistent with working out. Not quite to the everyday goal but like 4 to 5 times a week. I definitely don’t consider this a bad thing. Every day with no breaks may be slightly excessive but I am going to keep trying cause I would like to see how it goes.
Ragnar – Ragnar is getting closer! One month away and I am super excited! I’ve still been doing much of the same as I have mentioned in earlier check-ins. I have been getting about three runs in a week. These runs are nowhere near as long as Ragnar will be, but it should condition my body to be able to get through it hopefully unscathed.
Adventures – We have been getting out and doing some hikes lately. We really enjoy doing it. I am slightly bummed because we were hoping to make it to Bryce Canyon and have our Easter weekend out on adventure. I even planned on bringing the baskets and eggs for an egg hunt along. Unfortunately, it seems as if Utah is unwilling to give up on winter yet. We are not prepared for temps to hit the low 20’s in the canyon for tent camping. So, I think we may need to postpone that particular adventure for another time.
April Challenge – It has been really nice to think about being positive for those around me. Sometimes, I sit and think about the people that have been there for me the most and how I can express to them how much they mean to me. I have also chosen to reach out a couple times to go visit with people. It’s been a great experience and I’m glad I still have half the month to go.
Self-Care – I think I am going to add this in from now on. As I mentioned in the beginning of the article, I have had some struggles taking time to myself. Therefore, I want to look at it as a goal to make sure that I am thinking about how I need to take care of myself mentally throughout all the stuff that I am trying to accomplish.
