Seriously, is it really June? Goodness, this year is speeding by! It's time to make those monthly goals again, and I am seriously excited for June. Did I tell you that we are closing on a house on the 12th? A house with orange carpet that needs some TLC? It's a petite little house, stuck in the 60's, but we are excited to give it some love! That said, June will be a wee bit crazy between house projects and moving (again!), so I'm going to keep the list simple this month.
But, let's start with last month and see how I did:
Turn off technology at nine. I did this most of the time. Honestly, I wasn't as diligent as I was in April, but I still held to it most of the time. Even though this won't make the official list on June, this is definitely a new habit! Have any of you given your technology a bedtime?
Have a garage sale: Yep. We did. Just a word of advice: don't have a garage sale on the same day you move. Just sayin'.
Move every day. I would say I did this 80% of time. I didn't keep official track but between hauling boxes, walks to the park, and pilates, I think I squeezed in moving my body most days.
Spend time in the Word before social media. Total fail. Here's why: it became a rule. The intention was good--I wanted to stop plastering my phone into my face first thing in the morning and spend more time in the Word. However, I started to hustle through reading the Bible (or just read something quick), so that I could check my social media/email, etc. After a few mornings of doing that, I decided that this wasn't working. So, I'm back at the drawing board at how to change that. If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!
So, onto June's goals:
Read two books. I recently got a few new books and am excited to read them. I'm a quick reader, so this goal is doable and will give me some less technology-focused time.
Finish Luke's 1st year book. I really don't like this project hanging in the balance, so I want to finish it as soon as possible. It's definitely time-consuming, but if I chisel away at it, I think it's very possible to finish by the end of June.
Drink a green smoothie every day. So, guess what? Moving + life change + out of routineness = poor eating choices and tight pants. And since I know that June will also be filled with lots of changes + things to do, I want to be sure that I am still intentional with my eating choices. Plus, drinking some yummy and healthy smoothies will give me the energy I need to do all the house projects coming my way.
That's it. Three main goals that are unrelated to our moving/project list. So, if you have any fantastic green smoothie recipes, send them my way!!
