It’s time for a January Recap! We are a full month into 2018 and I hope January went well for you all! January was a really weird month, routine-wise.
I went back to work after the holiday break and, shortly after, my boss had surgery. She’ll be out of the office for at least a month which means the whole case load is mine to handle. I don’t mind it at all, it just means I stay really busy at work! The first couple of weeks back weren’t too busy since students weren’t back from break yet. I was expecting things to get slammed the first week of classes, but we ended up getting snow and campus was closed!
To some, a few inches of snow isn’t a big deal. Around here, schools tend to close due to road conditions. We ended up getting a 6 day weekend that went into the first week of classes, so my busy schedule was put on hold! The first couple of days of snow were fun! Maddie really enjoyed throwing and jumping in the snow.
After a couple of days, we all got stir crazy so we decided to send Maddie back to daycare and try to maintain as much of a normal routine as possible until everything went back to normal.
This year, I want to try more things and one of those things was hot yoga! I hadn’t practiced yoga in over 3 years I actually ended up going to a couple of yoga classes and enjoyed some of them. I have a whole post coming on my experience with hot yoga, but it felt great to experience new(ish) things!
I also started running more this month. I want to make sure that I’m exercising in ways that make me feel good instead of focusing on things that burn a lot of calories or are perceived as hard. For the most part, running makes me feel really good so I decided to add that into my regular exercise routine.
Other fun things that happened this month:
We went to a hockey game, as usual!
We visited my parents and my mom went with me to get tattoo number 15.
I gave Maddie a haircut and DIDN’T mess it up!
My goals for next month are fairly simple. I just want to continue doing what I did in January. I want to try at least one new thing, I want to continue with my exercise routine, and I want to appreciate each day and not get caught up in things that don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.
How did January go for you?
