April is one of those months where you start yearning for warmer weather. Summer is right around the corner and thoughts of beaches and pools are on people’s minds. Not me though. The only thing I have in mind is how fast I need May to come! April is one of those months where there are too many things to do and too little time to accomplish it.
Savir Blogs: After speaking about how I was being consistent with posting, this month I haven’t posted as much. I realized that when I’m too busy at work it affects my motivation to do any other activity after work. I am trying to catch up so hopefully I can get back on schedule.
Weight: I have been so busy that I haven’t even had the motivation to work out after work. Usually I don’t worry too much about not being able to work out because I get a good walk in during work but this month has been too busy. On a normal work day I am able to close out all my rings on my watch but I’ve been slacking on that. I did get complimented on losing some weight so it looks like my exercises in March worked!
Vacation: I haven’t taken a vacation since June 2021. This year I definitely plan on changing that! A problem that I’m seeing is that flights are expensive now! Flights are double what I usually pay. That definitely puts me at a disadvantage because I would have to save more so I could be able to vacation properly. There is nothing worse than vacationing with a tight budget! The good thing is I have some flight credits that I could use but I know it won’t be enough for all my travels. So far I have plans to go to Texas and California to visit family.
The good news is that although I’ve come across some minor challenges, free time is coming soon. I will be able to go back to my daily walks and a consistent posting schedule. Hopefully by the next life update I will have more positive things to share.
Wow! It definitely was not my intention to have Savir Blogs on the back burner. Real life definitely took over! So since I last posted I had a list of goals I wanted to accomplish, it’s only right that I update you on my process or lack thereof.
Savir Blogs: I updated my Newark collection. One of the pictures was used for my job’s Instagram page and it received good feedback. It also served as inspiration to other people so I thought that was cool. I still have beauty related content in mind, just not any hauls. I’m thinking maybe a makeup collection post or empty pan post.
Weight: I have not lost the 5 pounds that I wanted to lose. I did however improve my eating habits. I’ve been watching my portions and being mindful of how often I eat junk food. I find that I feel much better after meals. I haven’t started to work out and honestly I’m currently not motivated enough to begin.
Tattoos & Piercings: My goal was to have 3 new tattoos and a nose piercing by June. I accomplished this! I got 3 tattoos in one sitting. Some might think that’s a lot but the tattoos are on the smaller size of the spectrum. The pain was tolerable, even the one on my ankle. I also got my right nostril pierced. Although I did tear up when the needle went in, the pain was less than what I expected.
Vacation: In June I went to Las Vegas with my brother. It was extremely hot with over 100 degree weather but it was fun. Neither my brother or I are gamblers so we spent the majority of the time walking the strip, buying drinks, and shopping. I tried to plan a family trip to Houston but I was not prepared for all the accommodations I had to take into consideration! I haven’t decided when I’ll start planning that again.
Overall I’m not too disappointed with my goal update. I accomplished 2.5 out of the 4. Now that it’s the best time of the year, I think I’ll have time to focus on achieving the in progress goals.
Hi everyone! It has been a long time since I have posted. Life got in the way and I neglected this blog. Hopefully, this time around I can do better. My scheduling has improved so I now have time to do the things that I want. I figured I would make my first post back about my current goals.
Savir Blogs: Of course this blog would be first on the list. I have updated my Flowers collection so check it out! Coming up I have some beauty related content in mind. I placed an order for Sephora’s beauty sale that I want to tell you guys about and I have been wearing my natural nails so I decided to share my nail health progress as well.
Weight: I want to lose 5 pounds. Last year I was very focused and ended up losing 10 pounds. Unfortunately, I couldn’t keep the weight off because food is just too good! This time around I’m only interested in losing 5 pounds and I don’t have a set date by when I want this to happen. I’m taking my time by being conscious of what I’m eating but not making a big deal if I have junk food. I also have been slowly getting back to indoor cycling and walking to help me burn the calories at my pace.
Tattoos & Piercings: Yes, I am getting older in age but I do not have enough body art or piercings. My goal is to have 3 new tattoos and a nose piercing by June!
Vacation: I haven’t had a vacation in over a year. Once I get vaccinated I’ll feel comfortable traveling again. I cannot wait for this! Traveling does wonders for my mental health and not being able to travel last year really sucked!
Now that I have manifested my goals I’m ready to work to achieve what I want!
I have never been a flower person but lately I find myself admiring the flowers that I see on my walks. Once I see a pretty flower I just want to take a picture of it. It’s the way a flower looks once it’s bloomed that does it for me. I don’t care if it delays me in my travels, I will take as many pictures as I need to until I get the one I like.
With the pictures that I end up keeping I try different edits on them to see what speaks to me. I experiment with different editing apps to get the best results. I admit I’m no photographer or professional photo editor. I just go by what I like.
Since the majority of the time I end up doing absolutely nothing with the photos, I decided to add some to Savir Blogs. If you click here you will find more pictures. Don’t forget to check back for updates.
