Hello! Long time no post!
Challenge of the Month Update
This April I did not do my usual Challenge of the Month. I planned on doing some exercise of 7 mins per day but it turned out that I always walked on weekdays for 15 mins or more and on weekends for various reasons.
I altered my challenge of the month to the more fluid and forgiving 30 day challenge because I don’t feel limited to starting and ending challenges on the 1st and 30th of the month. Instead, I can start at any time then take a break after I finish a challenge to fully celebrate it and reflect on the next challenge.

It’s safe to say that I’ve incorporated it in my routine. It’s weird but I now go to work 15 minutes earlier than I used to. Something I couldn’t do with my December Go To Bed Early Challenge! I’m glad that my kaartehan got me somewhere this time.
Now on to February.

Happy New Year!
Here I am popping out into the blogosphere after a break from posting. It’s refreshing and weird at the same time. Anyway, before I chatter about my challenge of ze month, I’d like to share some snapshots of Vancouver. It’s not my hood but let’s just say I spend a lot of time in the city.
