Quarter 1 Goal Updates

 It has certainly been a while since I popped on here.  Life has been full of both wonderful and frustrating things and I haven't had the energy to come to the blog.  I can't believe that the first quarter of the year is over.  A lot has happened and the next three months seem like they are going to be an adventure! 

Before I share my goal updates, I have some news!  My husband and I were very excited to learn that we are expecting.  Our new little one will join our family in October.  Our daughters are very excited to have another child in the family.  They have already started giving name suggestions which are, at the very least, creative.  I have also enrolled full-time in school to finish off my program.  I am excited to be done, but I have a lot of work ahead of me in the next three months.  Our oldest daughter is still doing virtual school from home and my 3 year old likes to keep me on my toes.  I am going to need to rely more on the habits that I have put in place to keep me on track.

I had 2 main goals for the year.  I had workout goals and the goal to implement a morning routine.  My workout goal was to complete 4 strength workouts, 4 cardio workouts and 2 stretching/yoga workouts per week.  I have met or exceeded my goal consistently this quarter, with the exception of 2 weeks where I fell short on my strength training goals.  I have noticed such a difference in my life because I feel strong, my mental health has been good and I feel like I am doing a good job of taking caring of myself.  I am so happy with how things are going.

My morning routine has been much slower to develop, but I have made progress.  I have been consistently getting up in the morning before my kids, meditating and working out.  I love having a few moments to myself in the morning.  It helps me to start the day feeling calm and ready, rather than frazzled.  I will need to start pushing my mornings to start earlier this quarter because I have to build in extra time for my school work in the morning.

I hope to be back soon with my capsule wardrobe.  I am still figuring out what I will need and what I can make work. Until then, take care!
