You are wonderful.
Seriously, all of the support, positive feedback, and excitement that takes place on my High Five Fridays is unreal. You all made the twentieth High Five Friday such a huge success and left me feeling unbelievably happy and thankful <3
I truly look forward to HFF each and every week because I love celebrating you and what you accomplish! Everyone deserves to be recognized 🙂
Another thing that makes me happy about HFF is the support that occurs amongst my readers within the comments section. I instantly get a huge smile on my face when I see other readers congratulating the individuals receiving high fives.
I mean, really. How incredible is that?
Once again, I thank you for all of your support and for the support you offer to others <3
Now that you know how wonderful I think you are, let’s talk about June and recap how wonderful it was! It truly was a wonderful month, wasn’t it? I mean, it was my birthday and all 😉
Today I want to review the goals that I made for myself at the beginning of the month and see how I did at accomplishing them! 🙂
1. Get 7 – 8 hours of sleep each night
Of course this didn’t happen every night, but for the majority of the month I definitely did! Maybe even more some nights 😉 If I recall correctly, I had a few 9:30 pm bedtimes…
2. Read more
I definitely accomplished this goal! I read more this month than I have in a long time and I actually read real material as in a novel! I am so proud of myself and will be writing a review on The Magic by Rhonda Byrne this upcoming week! 🙂
3. Spend time with friends
I made a lot of time for friends over the month of June and I even more new friends and developed closer relationships with existing friends! I definitely had many sushi and tea dates this month! One of my favourite times spent with a friend this month was when I made a trip into Regina for a tea date with my sweetheart, Lils <3
I took her DAVIDsTEA virginity away and am proud to say that I got her addicted too…
She went back to DAVIDsTEA the very next day to buy more tea! That’s my girl 😉
4. Experiment in the kitchen
I definitely experimented in the kitchen this month and actually came up with some fantastic recipes!
5. Try your recipes
Not only did I create my own recipes, but I also tried a few of your marvelous creations as well!
Thank you for sharing all of your wonderful recipes! <3
6. Go kayaking
This totally did not happen. To be honest, there really wasn’t a time for us to go. The weather hasn’t been quite “kayaking weather” lately. Did I mention we slept downstairs a few nights ago due to tornado warnings?
Like I said, not ideal kayaking weather…
7. Become more patient
Yes! This goal was definitely at the back of my mind throughout my days; however, I believe there is always room to grow, so I will keep working at this!
8. Participate in Photo a Day June
If your friends with me on Facebook, you will be able to see that my “Photo a Day June” album is pretty much empty. I kind of fell off the bandwagon once Cuddles passed away.
1. Try a class
Major fail. No classes were tried; however, that’s not to say I didn’t go to the gym 😉
2. Leg press 200 lbs.
I was so close, but then my training program changed and I currently am not doing leg presses. So, no, this was not achieved.
3. Do an unassisted chin up
You can bet your bottom dollar that I can do an unassisted chin up now 😀 Never mind that. I can do two in a row 😉
4. Make foam rolling and stretching a part of my daily routine
I am so happy I made this a goal for myself because I stuck with it! I have been incorporating foam rolling and or stretching into my daily schedule and have noticed a wonderful difference within my training! I will usually foam roll while watching TV before bed and I also foam roll and stretch before each workout I do.
Blog Goals and Changes
1. Make new blog friends
Oh my goodness! Did I ever! As you know, I collect friends! So many new friends were made this month and closer relationships were developed, too! I am still in awe over how incredible these new friendships are <3
2. Create a “tea” page
Success! The Tea page has been made and if you haven’t checked it out yet, head on over! It’s a work in progress and I am still picking my brain for ideas, but it has been created!
3. Host a giveaway
Unfortunately, this didn’t happen. However, I am excited to say that there will be one in July! 😀
It’s all coming together 😉
4. Satisfy my readers
Well, you tell me! 😀
I think that pretty much wraps it up for today! 🙂
Thanks again for the wonderful HFF celebration yesterday! They are always so much fun 🙂 If you have something to high five yourself for this upcoming Friday, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂
I always love hearing from you! Have a wonderful weekend! <3
