April Showers


I CANNOT believe today is the last day of March! I came across my March goals today, hastily scribbled on a legal pad at work, and realized I didn't do too well. Well about 50/50...

1. Complete 21-day kickstart - SUCCESS!

2. Save money for NYC trip in April - SUCCESS! I am extra proud of myself for this one!

3. Attend two yoga classes - FAIL. Not even one...

4. Don't get angry - Um... success and fail? While I find that I let things go much easier these days, there are certain buttons of mine that, when pressed, lead to some pretty ugly behavior. Working on it!

Personally, I'm THRILLED that it's April! I have so much going on this month, I know it'll fly by. Here's a sneak peek at my April happenings...

- Trip to Dallas for Easter festivities

- Trip to Houston for work (Bonus: Get to see my law school BFF (Remember Pony?)!!!)

- Trip to NYC!!! I am SO excited for this trip, I can hardly sit still. I'll be there for 4 nights/5 days, and BONUS, Ma Soeur will be there for part of the time, too! I adore my NYC friends and can't wait to explore the city (and check out lots of vegan eateries!). 22 days and counting!

So basically, I'm taking lots of trips. :) Might as well make some April goals, oui?

1. Spend more time in the kitchen! I've noticed that I've been a little lazy since the Kickstart ended, and I find myself not prepared when it's dinner-time. More prep and more time in the kitchen will remedy that situation. For example, last night I made Chana Masala for tonight's din!

2. One "long" walk with Lola per week. Taking more walks w/ Lola was one of my Anti-New Year's Resolutions. So far, it's been a big fat fail, but last weekend, I purposely took her out on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon and had a great time. I get exercise. She gets exercise. It's a win-win situation!

3. Stop hitting snooze. I'm planning an entire blog post about this one. I am a notorious snoozer, and I think it's really screwing up my chances of ever becoming an early morning riser.

4. Declutter. No need to explain that... you saw my paper stash.


So tell moi, what're your April goals? Any fun Spring trips planned? I wanna know!

I'm so proud of you! Not just for the financial goals, either. ;)

I feel SO good about April, but the stars point in a different direction! They seriously say that my April will be disastrous! I'm waiting anxiously to find out! I'm turning 30 in April so my goal is to remain sane and not have a breakdown :) maybe that's what it's going to be - hah!

I agree, I'm excited about April! I set up all my birthday goals, and I'm feeling pretty good about them. I'm totally interested in reading your post about snoozing... I excel at hitting the snooze button, then rushing to get to work. I have been resolving to "get up earlier" FOREVER, and have never seemed to be able to do it. :)

You did flippin' awesome on your goals, don't even diminish your accomplishments. I mean, srsly, you went vegan! That's worth 3 goals right there ;)

Regarding the snooze, I've found that the days that I hit snooze numerous times, I feel worse when I try to get up...If I get up on the first alarm I feel way more rested and awake. If I get to bed a bit late, I just set my alarm 15 minutes later. You'll feel better than if you hit the snooze 5 times.

Taking long walks with my Lola is a goal too. I'm generally good about it for a week then I get lazy. Sigh. You have such an exciting April planned with all your travels! I love NYC, plus it's always fun with a sis!

My birthday's this month; I have a feeling this is not only going to be a good month, but a good year! :)

I can't wait to read your snooze post! I am a snoozer to the fullest! Sometimes I think I snooze about 6 times in the morning, and what is bad is that each snooze is set for 10 minutes! I snooze for an hour. *le sigh*
