March Progress Toward Goals

Well, we have arrived at the month of BABY!  It seems so hard to believe how fast the last 9 months went.  When I see pictures of myself pre-baby I have to wonder if I'll ever be the same size again!  I was doing great with the Beachbody Diet up until I got pregnant so I hope to start that again.  Of course, none of that matters right now and all we are focused on is meeting baby boy! 

The month of March flew by with moving and getting situated in the new house and getting our old house ready for sale (it's under contract praise the lord!).  I also FINALLY got to decorate the nursery!  I'll share more on that later. 

1.  Used up Products

I made a lot of progress here in March!  Like I said last month, after seeing how much I had to move, I am totally committed to keeping down the purchases!  A lot of the items I used up this month are things that I already had duplicates of or would repurchase when the time comes.
  1. Tree Hut Epsom Salt in Tropical Mango - LOVE this scent.  I've been using it when I take a long bath in hopes that the epsom salt helps with the pregnancy swelling.
  2. Burt's Bees Mame Bee Nourishing Body Oil - this was just way too messy and runny for me.  Glad to see it go 
  3. Neutrogena Eye Make up remover - already repurchased
  4. Bath & Body Works Beautiful Day Lotion - LOVE this but using up other products now
  5. Bath & Body Works LUSH Pink Travel Lotion - great scent but using up other products now
  6. Bath & Body Works Pink Champagne Hand Soap - LOVE the bottle, over the scent
  7. Soap & Glory the Righteous Butter Body Butter - this has been a staple at night after I shower.  I like how thick and creamy the lotion is and it's got the perfect amount of scent.
  8. Makeup Forever Mascara - alright but using up other products now

2.  Books and Magazines

I went through 7 magazines and 1 book.  I also finished Audible Books - Love Life by Rob Lowe (not as good as his other book) and Lady on the Hill about the Biltmore Estate.

4.  Get More Exercise
January = 47.10 miles which beats last January when I got 40.71 miles (yay, me!)
February = 43.18 miles which beats last February when I got 41.11 miles (baby steps!)
March = 79.40 miles - can we say moving is a very physical activity?!

5.  Scrapbook Pages
I wish I had time right now to be working on my scrapbooks!  Adam helped me unbox the last few boxes in the scrapbook room over the weekend and I pretty much have everything where it goes but I haven't even thought about jumping back in now!  My goal is just to get a few pictures ordered to be able to finish the pages I started back in early February.
