May in Review

So May is over. I feel like this past month has been slow, on the blog and in my personal life. Of course, it doesn't help that I have been sick for about half the month.

I'll be honest. I didn't do so well on my goals for May.

Hoop more (outside!) and work out more.
Halve my sugar intake. (Not that it's very high anyways)
Read. And then read some more.
Develop a story idea I have swimming in my head.
Keep the shop stocked with new items regularly.

I was hooping and working out more... and then I got sick. I have almost no energy for the past two weeks. I've tried to get in some crunches and stuff on the days I feel okay but everything tires me out really quickly. It sucks.

I did kind of do the second one. I have definitely consumed less sugar this month than I did in April. Hoping to get the amount down to almost nothing in the months to come.

I did read a bit. I started Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare and I am absolutely loving it so far. I really adore her two series. Good YA lit is a weakness for me.

I have been working on that story idea. Characters are swimming in my head and I have one of my main characters now which is a good start. Now I just need the main character. I wish she'd come to me already.

I failed at shop stuff this month. With my energy, so went my motivation and inspiration. I am hoping to get back to creating soon. There are a few gifts that need to be made for lovely people (ahem, Hollie) that will hopefully get my creative juice flowing.

Let's hope I do better in June, haha. Goals will be posted tomorrow.

Happy Friday everyone!

  1. Getting sick always messes me up :( I love the way you talk about writing and developing characters, so interesting :)

    1. Yeah, it's really thrown me off my game >.<
      Characters are something that have been in my head a lot recently. New ones keep popping up. It's nice :)

  2. I am the same, as soon as I get sick all my goals and projects are just done. I hope you are really starting to feel better. I wish I could mail you some elderberry syrup, damn refrigeration!

    1. My throat is still bothering me but I think I am really starting to get better. I really want to try my hand at making that syrup (when I have the money for it) because anything to help make sure I'm sick less often is totally worth it.
