Q2 in Review + Goals for Q3

Hello friends! Another quarter down, can you believe that? Tomorrow is already the freaking 4th of July!

If you’ve come here anticipating an account of all I’ve achieved in the last three months (as the fireworks in the featured photo may have lead you to believe), you won’t find that today, lol… however, if you’re looking to commiserate, I’m here for ya! I have only been mildly productive in achieving my Q2 goals, which I’ll run through quickly here (you can read last quarter’s full post HERE) before outlining what I want to achieve this quarter. And if you rocked all your goals like a boss, high five! Go you!

I Need A Hobby // Painting

Happy Monday! And happy start to the second half of 2019! Can you believe it? Time for my monthly hobby update!

I’m not gonna lie, this month has been hard. For emotional reasons with the anxiety around my dad’s surgery mid-month and his ongoing hospital recovery everyday since. Didn’t have a lot of leftover time for hobbies after working all day during the week and hospital visits at night. Free time went to day to day personal and home upkeep and sleep #exhausted. So this will probably be a quick post…maybe, lol…

Grown Up Summer Camp

We’re just two short days away from the official start of summer, hooray!! And while the part of me that has been longing for warmer weather and extended hours of sunlight is happy for it to finally be here, there’s another part of me that can’t help but be nostalgic, and even wistful, for the freedom felt in the summers of my youth. They weren’t anything extravagant, far from it in fact. But the relaxed attitude and carefree vibes are what I miss most. Being a grown up with a full time job kinda sucks the fun out of it, and makes it hard to achieve those summers of yesteryear that I long for.

An Update On Dad

Before two days ago, I didn’t know what this post would say.

Since my dad’s cancer diagnosis in April, I’ve teetered between abandoning the blog and/or reducing the number of posts I planned to put out there, not wanting the stress of missing self-imposed deadlines adding to my life at the moment. But somewhere along the line I decided I needed the sense of normalcy that I’ve come to know. So, whenever time allows, I’ve been writing as many posts in advance as I can.

But this is one I couldn’t write in advance.

How I Noomed

Hello friends, I hope all is well! I just wanted to stop in today to give a quick update on my weight loss journey so far this year. You may remember that back in early February I decided to try Noom to help guide me this go around. Overall, I was happy with the program and my experience. But somewhere around Week 12, I crumbled. I fell off the Noom wagon. Part of it was due to my own tendency to lose gusto and get bored, the other part was real life coming in and distracting me. Majorly.
