Goals Recap - Week 20

This week went by really quickly! My friend Val and her husband Evan came to stay the night with us on Tuesday en route from Canada back to California, which made Tuesday night and Wednesday morning feel like the weekend. It was pretty awesome. This weekend the only thing we have planned is my Gramma's memorial. We'll also be figuring out more details for our Colorado trip.

Goals for Blog
  • Regular Posting Schedule - Everything I wanted to write got done. The next two weeks may be hit or miss as we enjoy Colorado, and I may throw in some real old stuff to keep you entertained.
  • Design - Nothing new here.
  • Exposure - Writing about Bloomington definitely brings in more traffic, especially writing about local food stops like BBQ Train :)
Goals for Self
  • Health/Wellness - I biked to work today for Bike To Work Day (which is a big deal in Bloomington), which was really fun and maybe I'll do it again if the weather is nice. I've also spent a lot more time thinking about all the bad chemicals in the products I use, like my soap and shampoo, and I don't want all of that stuff getting into my body, so I am researching new stuff to get and will likely be getting rid of the stuff I currently have (good thing I bought it all on post-Christmas clearance :) ha!). I recently bought some 3-free nail polish and got rid of all my old nail polish...and the best part is that the new polish stays on about a million times better than all the stuff I used before (OPI and Sally Hansen and random no-name stuff). One thing I've been thinking about for several months is the market for a completely non-toxic nail salon. I can't help but think nail salons are so bad for everyone inside them (seriously, the smell), but it's also really nice to go to the salon and have someone do your nails. I want to start one. I think Bloomington would be perfect (#btownhippietown) but I have zero idea of how to go about setting up a business like that legally. (Also I am no expert at doing nails, so I would need to hire somebody who is!) I do have plenty of ideas of what to buy, how to run a salon, and how to be relaxing, though. Would you go to a non-toxic salon over a regular nail salon? What if the non-toxic salon didn't have massage chairs? I ought to do some market research first.
  • Education - Nothing new this week.
  • Business - I wound up painting my idea and it turned out really well. The recipients loved them. I will work on a full post about what it is I've been doing and see what you think. 
How are you doing with your New Year's resolutions/goals? This little recap definitely keeps me thinking about what I want to be doing this year! Thanks for reading :)
