October Goals Update

October has been a productive month to say the least. I’ve been getting back into a routine, juggling my studies, social life and work life with great difficulty. I’ve also been a little unwell during the month so healthy eating and fitness has been a little slower (had a week off to recover and start to control my asthma again). All in all, it’s been a decent month and just as I had wanted it too, it’s been my favourite so far this year. 

My main motive for this month was to just be happy and to be honest, I really actually have been. I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about what I want in my life and making changes to improve it. I’ve made some lovely new friends whom I get along with so well! I also feel like now I’m doing more of what makes me happy my life is generally drama free. It’s been an easy month, one of which I’ve enjoyed a lot. 

I’ve not managed to go to the gym every week as I had to take 1 weeks off due to illness. However, I’ve been eating as healthy as possible and generally just trying to keep as fit and healthy even when I’ve been so unwell! 

My course is underway, it’s challenging and hard work but I love how motivated it makes me and how happy I am to be doing a masters. I love education and furthering my education really does make me feel like I’m bettering myself and to be honest, I love improving my own life. 

It’s been a lovely month and I’ve really enjoyed myself so I’m hoping November will be just as fantastic.

October Goals 

October is such a lovely time of year. Autumn is my favourite season and I love the feeling of the colder weather appearing, the seasonal fun making an appearance and thinking about the differences I can make to my life during the final months of the year. 

This October I’m getting started with my newest adventure, a masters degree! I never thought I’d be saying that by the summer of 2018 I’ll be a 2 time graduate with a masters degree. I’ve challenged myself so much these past 5 years and I love who I am and who I continue to become. This is exactly why this October, I’ll be spending the month focusing on myself. Regularly exercising, keeping up with uni work, hanging out with friends, going to work, treating myself to a gift or 2 occasionally. Essentially, during October I’ll be doing anything and everything that makes me happy. Hopefully by the end of the month I can honestly say October has been the best month of 2017 yet. 

In regards to fitness and health, I want to continue to go to the gym at least 5/6 times a week and continue with my healthy eating! Hopefully losing a few pounds in the process but really not keeping track of the numbers on the scale and just with how I’m feeling. I’ll measure my body once a fortnight to see whether there has been any changes but really, I just want to be healthy. I’ll be cutting down on drinking during October to really help boost a loss but still continue to have my cheat meal once a week. 

During the month of October I’m going to try (really try) to have several makeup free days during each week. This is mostly because I want to really improve the condition of my skin which means giving myself the opportunity to clear my skin without clogging up my pores! 

Most importantly, I’m going to really focus on my course and getting into the swing of being back at uni. Having less nights out and drinking less to make sure I help boost my immune system to go to all lectures and my part time job. 

Really though, my only goal this October is to be happy, really truly happy.

September Goals

September has arrived and it’s by far my favourite month during the year. I love nothing more than new stationary, packing my things and moving back to uni and most importantly, the new academic year. This might sound weird for some but I can’t wait to move to my new home in just a few days time. 

My monthly goals this month are probably going to be a little more challenging but I’m going to cater them to my new life in another little town. 

There we have it, September’s monthly goals. Check back in at the end of the month to see how well I did.

August Goals Review 

At the beginning of the month I posted my August goals as a test to see whether I actually committ to them. I’m so happy to say that it actually does help motivate me and I really enjoyed keeping to them this month. 

Along with my August goals I’ve spent all month working and planning to go to uni next month and I’m so excited for it. So, did I achieve all my goals? 

I did happen to achieve losing 7lb, in fact I lost over 7lb and hit the first 1 stone mark. I hadn’t anticipated to lose weight so fast but I’m glad I have been because now I have lose another 7lb or more before heading to uni. 

I did save money! I wanted to save between £50-£100 but I saved more than that. I had a rather large deposit to pay for my flat and I was so afraid of not having the money so I literally spent the whole month doing nothing so I could afford it. 

My nails didn’t grow. In fact no matter how hard I tried, they would snap. Do you guys have any tips on how to grow your nails? Let me know in the comments. 

Now, for the big one.. did I finish the Harry Potter books? Well.. I almost finished the Harry Potter books. I currently have 1 more to go before I’m totally finished but I feel like reading all 7 Harry Potter books in almost 2 months is an achievement in itself.

August Goals

I’ve read a few blog post recently all about people’s monthly goals. I thought this was such a fun and creative way to keep track of my goals and see how well I have done at the end of each month. I’m aware that we’re almost a week into August but I did actually start these things at the beginning of the month, no harm right? 

August 2017 goals: 

  • Lose 7lb in weight – Might seem a lot but I’m hoping to get as close to this as possible and I’m already 2lb into this! 
  • Save £50 – £100. 
  • Finish the Harry Potter book series. 
  • Grow my nails and maintain them. 

Let me know yours, I’d love some inspiration!
