Hello April

2018 is just not going to plan so far. Every month I have made myself some goals, started off well and then just FLOPPED halfway through. To be fair, I have not been doing great physically or mentally lately but I'm starting to feel better again. I CAN do this, I WILL do this, I MUST do this. 

March actually started off really well. I was working out every sat, getting stuff done but then my mental health dipped and so did my physical health. I was in too much pain to work out for a couple of weeks so of course did lose any weight, let alone a stone. I did go away and have two lovely weekends in Sheppey though! I even got my blogging mojo back and wrote a ton of blog posts. 

GOALS

Lose one stone 
You all know I want to lose the baby weight, I don't really need to go into detail with this. 

Spend less 
I don't get much a month but I always manage to spend most of it. I really need to start being more careful with my money and only buy what I or Charlie actually desperately need. 

Drink more water
I actually made a pretty good start on drinking more water in the last couple of weeks, so as long as I continue down that road, I'll smash it.

Go for daily walks
Even if it's just round the block, now the weather seems to be cheering up a bit I want to make the most of it before it gets scorching hot. It'll help me lose the weight too. 

Read to Charlie daily 
I really want Charlie to be a reader like me and everyone else in our family. My side of the family anyway, his Daddy isn't a reader. I started reading to him occasionally last month and he usually gets fed up quite quickly but I'm determined. 

Try slow living/single tasking 
Slow living is the 'art' of being less busy and taking time to enjoy the little things. I also call it single tasking. I plan on writing a full blog post on this, but I'm essentially/personally using it as an excuse to put my phone down more often.  

MOTTO OF THE MONTH 
Persist until something happens

I'm excited to see what April has to offer. All good things, I hope. What are your goals for April?
