It feels like its been ages since I posted a goal update – read accountable I know – but keeping to my goal of staying positive, better late than never right? So today is the day that I actually take account for how poorly I’ve done on my goals of late, however I am adding/editing some goals to align with me aims.
Lets dive in…
- Complete the A-Z reading Challenge
In July I finished ‘The Lost Hero’ by Rick Riordan. Which completed my ‘L’ book for the challenge. I did also read ‘Mythos’ by Stephen Fry, but I already have an ‘M’ book so I can’t add it.
Chalking it up as a win!
- Post at least 3 times a week
I managed to still post while I was in Greece. It wasn’t 3 times a week, but considering I was on holiday, thats ok. As soon as I got back I was in the swing of things and started posting in my usual schedule.
- Exercise 3 days a week
I’ve book pretty bad at this… I came back from Greece with a new goal and did not start off strong. So I am changing this goal to: Exercise 5 days a week. I want to really focus on my fitness and health, since in Greece I ate a lot of things that I definitely can’t.
Fail this month.
- Read 30 books in 2018
This has definitely a great goal, its really been keeping me motivated.
I think this will be a goal that I’ll need to update this goal and add more books!
- Try a new recipe each week
I tried a new recipe this week, although considering we were in Greece we did try a lot of different food. I think we will need to work on this one a little more.
bit of a fail.
- Practise positivity and optimism
This is a goal I am definitely finding tricky. I was positive and optimistic in Greece, but I feel like everyone would feel more positive soaking up the rays on a beautiful island! Now that I’m back home and in the depths of winter its been hard to stay positive. I think I need to set myself a daily reminder to make this goal more achievable.
Fail for now.
- Less technology and more reading before bed
This is a goal that I am not even trying to achieve honestly, I don’t why its so hard for me to put down my phone and read at night!
- NEW GOAL: So a little fun fact – I got engaged recently (If anyone wants a post about how it all went down/ my experiences so far with planning a wedding let me know)
So I decided for the purpose of getting my health back on track and looking and feeling my best while I’m trying to organise an important event in my life. My goal is to focus on what I am putting in my body and work towards positively changing my eating habits to maintain being Gluten and dairy free.
Of the 7 goals I was working on in July I achieved 3 and failed towards 4. Lets hope I can make more progress in August.
what goals are you working towards in 2018?
