Hmmmm … well this recap is a bit overdue. I think that is because not much happened to me in April that was outstanding. I have been racking my brain and April was a mundane month for me. Other than getting confirmation via a baby shower invite that one of my cousins is pregnant, no big happy news happened. I think with my friend experiencing so much loss that my focus, as much as it can be, has been on her.
Exercise is now mainly walks as I am still trying to get 10,000 steps done 5 days a week. My new shoes were hurting my feet but my Mom told me how to tie them and it has made all the difference. There were 21 days of walking in April. I also managed to work out 4 times which is a surprise to me. I would like to get back to lifting weights but haven’t managed to motivate myself to do it. Interestingly enough my weight has remained steady, no real loss but no gain either!
I only read 3 books last month. I started Cecily Tyson’s autobiography late in the month and was not able to finish it before the month changed over. I vaguely recalled some controversy when Matthew’s book came out. I can’t remember what it was and after reading the book whatever it was did not register on me.
There were 9 no spend days last month. There was way too much spent on food considering my freezer is still not empty. But sometimes a girl just wants someone else to cook. Plus I am addicted to bubble tea and dragon fruit. I also find that if it is not in my house, that’s the meal I want . 😦 Time to get myself under control. With the stay at home order extended, there should be more no spend days this month.
My decluttering has been paused. No reason other than laziness. I was hoping my cousin would say she is coming for the shelving unit that I offered sooner rather than later and that would be the kick in the pants I need. But so far she is trying to get settled into her new place before figuring out how to get this large shelf to their space. Right now I am using the shelf as an excuse not to do any more as I will be moving the furniture around as soon as it is gone.
The microwave that I took from my Dad stopped working a few weeks ago. I am hesitant to buy another one and have been finding creative ways to reheat my food. Steaming is working really well for me. The lack of a microwave is also influencing what I cook and eat. More plant based food and salads for the win!
That was April in a nutshell.
Hope all is well in your world.
