It's me!

Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in beauty, lifestyle, and anything else that holds my interest. Hope you have a nice stay!

April Goals

April Goals

So I didn’t get everything on my March Goal List crossed off and the world didn’t end. SURPRISE!   Life happens. For reals that’s why we have reset buttons. April is a chance to start over brand new  and reallocate some of my goals.  I have plans and I’ll take it a day at a time.

walking routine

I have struggled with being active and having a routine. The plan for April is to try walking 1 mile for 5 - 6 days a week to get my walking legs back in order, no excuses! By the end of Week 2 in April I will walk 2 miles a day.  Then May’s Challenge will be to walk 3 miles a day 5 to 6 days a week. If I can set my mind to getting active then I know I will actually be active.

2 dance/aerobic classes

I am not the one when it comes to actively going to anyone’s gym.  I simply do not have the patience, will, or access to have a gym membership. By committing to two classes in April I am attempting to build up to taking 1 class a week at a good cheap rate going to different locations that give you an economy option for the first class. I am more likely to keep my commitments if what I am doing is fun and somewhat adventurous for me.

green lunch

Eating healthy can be a struggle when you have a love for all of the stuff you shouldn’t have. I admit vegetables suck.  I don’t particularly love them, but I know I can’t live without them. For this month I will be incorporating a large salad for lunch 5 days out of the week. On the days that I have brunch or lunch with friends I’ll flip my garden meal to dinner time to hopefully balance it all out. I want to say I look forward to it, but I don’t.

youtube will be my thing

I always have really great ideas for videos that I want to post, but then I chicken out because it’s a lot more work than one would think. When it comes to my creative ventures I can be a bit of a perfectionist. I declare, I will post my intro video this month and a DIY/tutorial this month  Just you watch!

interview 4 m.o.b. & calendar

Now that I have a renewed sense of philanthropy with an emphasis on communities of color (CC). I am confident in moving forward in showing support for my minority owned businesses by people of color. I will be starting the interviews this month and hopefully posting the first business featurette in the second week of April. Cross your fingers for me. I also hope to get an events calendar going that focuses on events run by people of color up and going as well.  I think the calendar will be a May goal. Cross your fingers for me.

vision board

I’ll be creating my vision board to keep me motivated, positive and keep my eye on the prize.  Unfortunately, everywhere I turn I am hearing and seeing messages that devalue my worth as a woman of color.   To counteract these messages I have to choose to surround myself with as much positivity as possible. I do a lot of self speak and I’m not ashamed of it.  I have to tell me and believe me when I tell myself I am worthy of love, happiness, and respect. So a vision board is just one more thing to send myself that message as well as looking to the future towards success.

finish 3 books

I still got them books...I’m gonna finish them and that’s that~

my first house plant

I am buying my first official houseplant and I plan to make it live forever. There will be no buying a fake plant and passing off as real.  This will be a legitimate plant that goes through real photosynthesis and give me oxygen. Legit, I have been reading articles and books to get prepared. My plant will survive.
