And just like that, it’s March! And as is custom, the first post of the month is dedicated to the things I’ve been loving in February. Let’s get into it!
I know a number of people are rolling their eyes at this as they read it. But honestly, astrology is such a fun concept to me. I’m a huge believer in the idea that you make your own destiny, so I don’t really believe that the alignment of the stars is any sort of accurate predictor of moods or behavior, but that doesn’t mean I don’t find it interesting or fun. Lately, I’ve been really into Jessica Lanyadoo’s horoscopes, due to her appearance on one of my fave podcasts, Self Service.
PEScience Prolific Pre-Workout
At the beginning of February, I went on a “caffeine cut.” Between pre-workout, my coffee addiction, and the occasional Diet Coke/white Monster, I was drinking way too much caffeine. I forced myself to back down to one cup of coffee per day and stimulant-free pre-workout for 2 weeks, which has done wonders for lowering my caffeine tolerance. However, now that I’m back on caffeinated pre-workout, this PEScience pre-workout is my absolute favorite. It gives such a solid pump and, of course, that glorious caffeine kick that makes my workouts feel absolutely wonderful.
Before I started this blog, I was also really into writing, but in a totally different way. My mind is just geared towards building stories for some reason (I blame how much time I spent reading books as a child), and I’ve always had a ton of writing ideas running around in my head at any given time. I unintentionally got back into that this month. While I love writing for this blog, it’s been really nice to write things that aren’t necessarily for other to read. At the same time, I’m now really leaning towards this idea of writing a book. I have no clue what it’d be about – I don’t even know if I want to write something fiction or nonfiction – but I really like the concept. Because, you know, I really need something else on my plate in addition to everything else I do, LOL.
While my blog has kind of been a little slow this month (I’m sorry I haven’t been updating on my normal schedule, I’m coming back, I promise!), one really exciting thing that happened for Espresso and Ambition this month is that I was accepted to the rewardStyle program. This platform now allows you guys to shop my Instagram pictures as well as a whole other host of things, so I’m really happy about this next step in my blogging adventure.
It’s a shorter list this month than normal, but the month was shorter as well – so really, it’s only fair. I’m really excited for March though, because I feel like there’s so much happening this month and there are so many opportunities for me to actually get on top of things again. February was overwhelming, so March is going to be the month of conquering it all. Stay tuned to see if I actually make it through!
