A few months ago, I started a bath and skin care line called Athena Rose. I am finally starting to write in my business blog, so if you’d like to follow that blog, here’s the link. I will also be posting the link to my Etsy shop if you’d like to check that out as well.

Here’s my recap for my March goals
1. Run 30 miles
Did this, ran exactly 30 miles with only two runs, a 5k and a full marathon, the LA Marathon to be exact. Ran a little more because of all the crowds
2. Read 5 books
I actually ended up reading 8 books
3. Taking part in Meatless March
I started this and only ended up doing this for about 10/11 days.
4. Use phone less than 45 hours a week
I did so well in the first two weeks, but after we were told to stay at home, my phone usage definitely went up.

Did not post a single video on YouTube because I couldn’t come up with an idea for any videos
I am not setting any goals for April. I hope I can eat out less, run more, walk more, read more, and use my phone less, but I won’t be upset or mad at myself if I don’t. Right now we are being told to stay at home as much as possible because of the covid19, aka the coronavirus. The most important thing for me is to stay healthy and keep my daughter healthy and also help keep my family healthy during these tough times.
So many people are so addicted to their phones. To them, their phone is essential. They can’t be without their phones. There are people who use their phone for 8+ hours a day! I admit that sometimes I spend too much time on my phone, either using social media or texting or just browsing on YouTube.
If you feel like you need to cut back on using your phone, then this is for you.
- Set a limit on what time you can use your phone. For example, I stop using my phone after 8pm and on my days off, I won’t use my phone before 7am. Of course this is different for many people because our schedules are all different. The best thing to do is stop using your phone an hour before you go to sleep and don’t use your phone until you’ve been awake for an hour.
- Stop using your phone while eating. So many people do this as well.
- Don’t take your phone into the bathroom with you
- Find a hobby that doesn’t include your phone, things like writing, reading, running, working out, gardening, the choices are endless!
- Create “phone free” zones. This could be at your job or home. Just keep your phone out of sight and focus on your job, kids, or cleaning.
Last year, I didn’t take part in Meatless March. I had a newborn baby and just needed to eat whatever I could to give myself energy. This year I decided to take part in Meatless March. The first week or so was definitely easy. I didn’t miss eating any meat or seafood. After the first week, I started to miss eating chicken. I lasted about 10/11 days when I decided to stop taking part in Meatless March. The reason I decided to do this is that because of all the craziness that’s going on in the world and all the supermarkets being out of stock with certain essentials, I can’t afford to be so picky with what I eat. Once this calms down, I will most likely stop eating red meat and seafood again.
Starting to set more goals for myself, some of them are easy and some are a little bit more difficult. Here are my goals for March.
- Run 30 miles
- Read 5 books
- Taking part in Meatless March
- Use phone less than 45 hours a week
- Post 5 posts on my blog
