March flew by, but I am so glad it did! Not because it was a bad month, it was actually a fantastic month, but it was cold. Obviously it has been cold for the past 6 months, but in March we saw a glimpse of warmth which made the cold that much worse. Other than that I had a very busy and productive month! I am ready for April and so excited for the things I have planned! So now on to my March 2017 Monthly Recap and my April 2017 Monthly Goals!

How did your March go?

March Recap 2017

Make sure to read my March 2017 Goals before reading the recap!

1. Get everything completely unpacked

For those of you who don’t know, I moved in the beginning of March. One of my goals this month was to get everything completely unpacked. I am almost finished and plan on finishing up this weekend! It feels so good to have almost everything unpacked and organized.

2. Start a Budget

I kind of completed this goal. I started using an app called spending tracker and I love it. It has been helping so much and I think it put me on the right path I needed. I plan to sit down and work out a budget very soon. Let me know if you have any tips!

3. Complete 30-Day Challenge and Start a new one

I finished this goal and couldn’t be more proud! I started a 30-Day Fitness Challenge for arms and abs in the beginning of March and recently finished successfully! Also I began the 30-Day Water Gallon Challenge and am still struggling to complete it. There will be a post with a review of the gallon challenge after the 30 days are up. Also I will be starting a new 30-Day Fitness Challenge on Tuesday, April 4th!

Overall Thoughts on March

March turned out to be a better month than I thought it would be. I was finally able to start getting back into a routine and I know it will be even better when I completely finish unpacking and organizing. I was also able to start cooking and baking more after two months without my own kitchen. Oh how I have missed it!

 Dreaming With Love March Recap

March was the 3rd month of Dreaming With Love and I am so proud of how far I have come already. There has been a lot of hard work, setbacks, and daily struggles. However, I have persisted and came out on top every time! My page views and social media numbers grew the most this month than the past two which made me beyond excited. I have been having a hard time not comparing myself to other bloggers. Reminding myself daily to only compete with myself and that any progress is still progress.

April 2017 Monthly Goals

1. Start Crocheting Again

I learned how to crochet last year and love doing it. I’m not very good at it yet (practice makes perfect), but I have created a few items. I haven’t crocheted at all yet this year and I have multiple projects in mind. Normally I will crochet while I watch TV, but lately I have been so busy between work, school, blogging, and unpacking. This month I want to make time for it again!

2. Read (at least 1 book)

I used to read every day and reading is one of my absolute favorite things to do. Since I started college I rarely read anything for enjoyment anymore. This month I really hope to be able to set aside time each day or every other day.

3. Daily Journal

Having a daily journal helped me so much when I was struggling mentally last year. I really want to get back into the habit of daily journaling so I made it a goal this month!

4. Stop Biting Nails

I am so sick of being embarrassed of my short and weak nails. Since I can remember I have had an absolutely terrible habit of biting my nails. I feel too self conscious to wear nail polish because it draws attention to my ugly nails. Enough is enough. I am quitting and April will be the first month!

5. Scholarships

The fall semester will be here before we know it (I know it’s still spring semester but trust me). I want to get a head start and start applying for scholarships now. For April I am hoping to apply to at least 5 scholarships. I also want to find a bunch with deadlines later in the summer and have a list made. Let me know if you have any suggestions!

6. 30 Day Fitness Challenge

If you don’t already know, I did a 30-Day Fitness Challenge for arms and abs in March! I want to try to do a new challenge every month. My April one will be starting on Tuesday, April 4th!

7. Make a Gardening Plan

I have decided that I want to do a little gardening this year. I am finally in a house of my own with a back yard rather than an apartment! Now I don’t want a huge garden, but I would like to try to grow a few low maintenance vegetables. I have zero experience except when my parents used to force me to pick weeds. So I want to do some research and make a plan for this summer. I would love to hear any tips and suggestions you have!

 

What are some of your April 2017 Monthly Goals??
