April 2018 Goal Check In

April was a big month for checking goals off of my list! I completed my first Whole30, you can read about my experience here, and I also completed the Sweat 12 Week Challenge, see my review here.


  • Drink eight glasses of water a day 
  • Journal everyday
    • I missed out on a couple of days of drinking eight glasses of water while I was traveling but otherwise I am still keeping up with both of these daily goals.


  • Workout four days a week
    • So glad I am keeping up with my workout goals! 
  • Cook a new meal once a week
    • I've still been cooking a lot, I just haven't tried making many new recipes. 
  • Work from a coffee shop one day a week
    • Been working from home. Hoping to get out in the future! 
  • No TV or Social Media one day a week
    • Still failing at this. It's harder than you'd think it would be to disconnect for an entire day. 


  • Read two books a month
  • Try a new restaurant: I ate out a lot this month! I love trying new to me places when I travel. 
    • Houston
      • Bloom & Bee: This is the absolute prettiest place I have been to in Houston! The decor is very feminine with a blown glass ceiling, pink chairs, marble table tops, and flowers on every table. I had the avocado toast and an an iced vanilla latte. This is the perfect spot for brunch with the girls. 
      • East End Hardware (Bar): We went specifically for the boozy snow cones and were not disappointed! I had the tigers blood and starwberry pisco. 
    • NYC: I'll be including details about each of the restaurants and bars below in my NYC guide. 
      • Bustan 
      • Plantshed Cafe 
      • Souvlaki 
      • Old Rose 
      • Le District
      • Flour Shop
      • Milk and Cream Cereal Bar 
      • Teriyaki Japanese Ice Cream
      • Dō cookie dough confectioners 
      • Bluestone Lane 
      • Xi'an Famous Foods 
      • Maison Pickle 
  • Plan a girls night
    • My time in NYC with Clair was girls night every night! I loved spending time just us girls catching up on life.
  • Send birthday cards
    • Got the cards out this month! 


  • Run a 10k - Completed on February 24, 2018 
    • Finished my first timed 10k in 59:15.6 mins! 
  • Run a half marathon
    • I am working my way up to a half marathon. I am currently working my way through a 15k to half marathon program! I signed up for the Houston Marathon in January of 2019 so I am training slowly but surely! 
  • Complete a Whole30 - Completed April 13, 2018 
  • Plan our 30th birthday party
    • Haven't made any new progress on this.
