Goals for August -2018

Another month is long gone, and I am late with this post but that’s no matter, better late than never as they say. Looking back at last months goals, a lot of them didn’t happen, I didn’t spent much time with Dann and I damn well didn’t go for walks, it has simply been far to hot for that!

I did however reach my twitter goals finally after what felt like forever, I didn’t get my Instagram goals but, lets be real here, that is one of the harder ones to crack.

August itself is going to be tough, Dann is away a lot and its the final few weeks of the holidays from school, we all know how on edge the children can get when they’re away from school for so long, It is honestly safe to say this month is full of stress and exhaustion.

Life –

Be More Positive – Anxiety has hit me a lot last month, I don’t know why because July was such a good month for me personally but I haven’t been the best in the mental health sense, I have let my fears get the better of me and honestly felt like I wanted to stop blogging all together, I haven’t really told anyone about it because I didn’t want to really bother anyone, but August, despite the mad stress that its going to be, I want to be more positive.

Loose Weight – I know, I know, I say this a lot, but this time I feel different, I feel confident and determined to actually do something about my fat, I tried on a pair of jeans and they didn’t fit, so I decided to, rather than buy a bigger size, to try and I use the word try because I feel like its less stress, to loose some weight with calorie counting, as of today I have lost 5lbs … so here’s hoping I can continue and reach my goal, which has been set by my little calorie tracker as Christmas Eve..

Save Money – I think we all need to do this from now, as in four short months time the Big C is back and I want to be prepared!

Blog –

My blog is going okay, I guess I am happy with it, I have just started changing things up a bit and I like what I have done with the header, which I made myself, nothing fancy but I am pretty pleased with how it looks and fits, writing is going fantastic, I installed Yoast to help with SEO and making sure everything makes sense, and I feel like its made a little bit of a difference in view count, But of course it is early days as its only been one week.

I have been obsessed with Pinterest again, I never realized how much of a useful tool it could be and I find myself wasting hours pinning and reading posts from it, and this has also helped my blog views as well.

My photography is getting better, I try and take my camera with me whenever I go out because you just never know when its needed and I love it, I have tried to vlog but because I am so into the moment it never happens.

Social Media –

Pretty happy with my social media, I hit my twitter target of 2000 so realistically, because we have four months until the end of the year, like to hit at least 2300 by the start of 2019, its a big goal in a short space of time but I do feel it is achievable, Now with Instagram, I doubt very much it will grow how I want it.

I also want to start to work on my Facebook page as well as it sort of got pushed aside in favor of Twitter which I find a lot easier to handle.

All these social medias are just exhausting!

    All great goals and super achievable too! I haven’t set myself goals over the last few months because I found I just stressed too much about achieving them. But I do want to lose a bit of weight at the moment and just generally be a bit more active xxx

    I never set myself any goals each month, I just find that it makes me stress about them. I really admire other people that do set goals and achieve them though! 🙂
