As you read about here I was able to organize and find myself some work space as well as make space for Little A to play with his trains. I feel really good about finding this space! Also, it is really nice to have a bit of space in our apartment that dedicated to me!
I have done pretty well at writing content for the blog and I am pleased with that. One unwritten goal that I had for Intentional Explorers was to get 100 Facebook followers by the end of July I am struggling a little with that goal. So if you haven’t followed us on Facebook yet please do! And invite your friends too! We are less than 30 people away from this goal!
I have been working hard on recruiting for my Fall Tinkergarten season but I have been struggling. I have a meeting with the Tinkergarten people on Tuesday. Hopefully they will help me with marketing ideas!
I wrote a few weeks ago about creating wool diaper covers. Last week I made my first Pocket diaper! I made the diaper from scraps so it isn’t pretty, but It is functional! I am excited about how easy it was. Now I just need to get in gear and make the rest! The hard part is finding time to add the snaps because they take so long and Little A gets very interested in them.
I have still been struggling with eating healthy foods. Emeals has helped a lot but I still struggle with convenience foods when out and about. I am very proud of the fact that I was able to pack my food for the convention I attended this weekend! By planning and bringing my food I only ended up eating out once! Not only did I save money but I also ate much more healthfully! I love these containers for fruit, snacks, and sandwiches and this one for larger items or salads.
My goal of hiking once a week has been met and I have been walking most days too. I have gone running a hand full of times and would like to go at least 5 more times before school starts!
Mental health is an important part of healthy habits and even though it wasn’t part of my original goals I want to say a few words about it here in project update 4. I have started to use more positive thinking strategies and I downloaded the app called Calm recommended to me by my friend over at Windcarved Designs. I am looking forward to seeing how the breathing exercises help calm my mind!
Poor Mr. Snail has been very neglected. I haven’t worked on his videos at all…
Overall as of project update four I have made progress. Not as much as I would like. But progress is progress so I will be happy with it!
