Here we are again, the end of another month and its time to check in with my goals for 2018.
I feel like I’ve really hit and end of year rut, probably due to being so tired, which seems understandable but still. The weather is getting nicer her in Melbourne – finally- so I feel like I can be a whole new person now!
Anyway, here’s how the goals went for September…
- Complete the A to Z Reading Challenge
So another month has gone by and I haven’t actually read any books that I can add to my A to Z list, mostly because I’ve already read books with the same letter. The downfall to reading series.
- Post at least 3 times a week.
So this one is one that I’m doing well with keeping up with. I think I missed one day last week, because to be honest I forget what day it is sometimes on school holidays. This is probably one of the goals I’ve been able to be the most consistent with!
- Exercise 3 days a week
To be honest this is another one I’ve been struggling with, probably because I exercise after work and I’m usually exhausted after work. I will say I’ve definitely ben doing more. I did boxing a couple of times after school with some people from work and then I convinced George to box with me – granted I’ve only managed to convince him once – so I would say PROGRESS is being made!
- Read 30 books in 2018
I am so excited because I have EXCEEDED this goal in September and have actually increased my reading goal to 35!
- Try a new recipe each week
I don’t know if I’ve kept it up on a weekly basis but I have at least tried a few new restaurants lately which has been nice. I’m trying a new recipe the day I am writing this post – for dinner I am making Cauliflower Gnocchi – so excited to get back into it. Again the weather effects me so much that I just get so down and sloth mode in winter.
- Practice Positivity and Optimism
Still struggling with this in September, yikes. But I have been feeling more positive lately, which is a great start!
- Less Technology more reading before bed
I am a technology fiend apparently! I’ve honestly been unable to just put down my phone and read at night, which seems ridiculous. I end up in a YouTube hole just watching Survivor Challenge videos – which don’t get me wrong are absolutely amazing and I love them.
- Focus on what I’m putting in my body and work towards positively maintaining being gluten free and dairy free
I’ve been average at this at best, which is bad because I always feel it and then instantly regret it. Onwards and upwards though!
How have your 2018 goals been going?
