The biggest thing I’m proud of this month is that I totally, totally killed it in the working out department, and this is thanks to Erin’s Four Weeks to Fit Challenge! I worked out four times a week the entire month (which was one of my March goals!) and honestly haven’t felt this good physically in a long time. I’ve been doing cardio about once a week and yoga about three times a week.
I want to do a post about this later, but seriously, I think yoga has completely changed my life. I’m finding so much inner peace, flexibility, and my tummy is shrinking! YOGA FOR THE WIN!

I’m also happy with the content I wrote on my blog this month… though I realized I’m hardly really writing about traveling (I never launched my Traveler’s Diary series, and I still haven’t written about my trip to Thailand?!) I think the reality is is that even though I live abroad and do travel a lot, it’s not the only thing I want to write about. I’m hoping this month I can get up a few posts about Thailand!

I set a goal to be more careful with my spending, and I’m glad to say I succeeded! Woo! I didn’t get my nails done once this month, a big win for me 😉

Mentally, I hit some difficult roadblocks this month. Have you ever just felt yourself snap? Like, you hit some type of mental moment and feel so angry and overwhelmed and you can’t even explain why? Yeah, that happened to me. Friends from home who are reading this, please forgive me for not really responding to messages lately… my #1 priority has simply been getting through the day. I’m in a much better place, but I’m excited to explore more about my identity through yoga and meditation (those are things I NEVER thought I would be saying… like, ever).
It was a long time coming, I think. I’ve been burning the candle at both ends busting my ass at work all day, trying to do a million and one projects on the side, and then have an active social life that I just snapped. This quote has been my mantra the past two weeks.
I am the only person who can bring myself peace (oh, and Jesus :D).
I did not touch my book at all this month, and I have decided that for the next three months until I get home, I’m putting that project on hiatus.
That was March for me! How was March for you?
