Gurly's Life | August 2015 Goals + Reflection on July Goals

Practicing my Modern Calligraphy! 
Hey Dolls! 

With August here it is time to set new goals and review last months goals. In my July Goals + Setting Goals post, I shared some tips on how to motivate yourself in achieving your goals. 

Lets see which goals from July I have achieved and which ones I did not. 

  • Blog 15x in July
  • Find a really good part time job
  • Hit the gym 3x a week
  • Eat more healthy - reduce my takeout

I wanted to do 15 blog posts in July. I was very close, I did 11 blog posts. So yay! This also is a good time to assess if I had set an achievable goal, and I think 15 was a good target number. I am going to keep this goal for August and hopefully achieve it! 

I FOUND MYSELF A REALLY GREAT PART TIME JOB! Goal CROSSED OFF! I will be sharing more with you in the upcoming weeks, it is a really exciting and great opportunity! Really get to use my graphic design skills! 

I sadly did not hit the gym 3x a week. Nor did I exceed 3x a week. Things just got so darn busy with work in July.  After a long work day and the summer heat/sun draining me out, I did not have the energy to hit the gym much. .... Yes, this can be misconstrued as me making excuses, but it is the truth! That being said, working out is very important for my health and really helps keep my anxiety levels low. I am going to continue pushing myself to live a more active lifestyle and hitting the spin bikes at the gym. 

I can say my "fast food" meals were significantly reduced. I think I might have gotten maybe 5 fast food meals. That is excluding Oatmeal from Starbucks! However, I also was not eating very healthy at times. I ate A LOT of cake .... whoops,... and I did have some late night snacks. However, I was eating a lot of fruit like MANGOS! YUMMMY and the chefs at my job have been wonderful in making meals that use fresh locally grown produce. But I also at times was only eating twice or once a day because when I get in a good working groove, I tend to not eat. For August, I am going to practice better eating habits. 

AUGUST 2015 Goals:

  • blog 15x in August
  • Instagram 20x with quality pictures! 
  • Have healthier eating habits - 3 meals a day with minimal processed food
  • GYM - just get my butt to the gym a few times a week
  • Watch my Green Tea Latte intake as I seem to be going a bit crazy since I do get free lattes at work...

I really want to hear from you if you have any tips on how I can go about better achieving my goals. As well, what goals you have set for yourself! I look forward to reading your comments dolls!
