Another month is here, and with that, it’s time for more goals! I’m really loving keeping myself accountable each month by setting these goals. Even
if when I fail, it still feels good to strive for something all month long. But before we get to my August goals, let’s recap July.
1. Read three books.
I FINALLY accomplished this goal! After months of coming up just shy of three books, I blew it out of the water last month and read FIVE! I’m pretty excited about not only meeting my goal, but completely exceeding my expectations.
2. Co-host a blog giveaway.
Check! It’s actually live right now and you should totally check it out. Seriously.
3. Organize my room.
Sadly, this one didn’t happen again this month. I give up lol.
4. Give myself grace.
Oh yes. Grace upon grace last month, that’s for sure! I’m pretty proud of this one. I even extended grace to myself for failing that previous goal again. 🙂
5. Try a new recipe.
Yes! Not only did we try a new recipe, but it was a big hit! Be on the lookout for the recipe to come to the blog soon!
6. Edit pictures.
Fail…’ish’. I kind of did this but kind of didn’t. I definitely didn’t get as much as I wanted to done, so I’m calling it a fail. But I got started at least! So, that’s a plus in my book.
Now onto August!
Read three books.
I’m hoping to keep my progress going and read another three books this month. Fingers crossed for good results like last month!
Better eating habits.
I’ve been feeling kind of crappy lately, and I know a lot of it has to do with my eating habits. I want to drink a lot more water, eat better, and lose some weight! I know weight loss is a BIG goal that won’t be accomplished in a month, but this month I really want to focus on eating smaller food portions and making better food choices. And water. Much more water intake would be amazing.
Book of John study.
I started this study with the First 5 app, purchased the Book of John Experience Guide, and finally have an amazing Bible that I absolutely love. I’m a few days behind in the study, but I want to catch up and finish this study this month. I have a bad habit of just dropping studies halfway through, and I’m vowing not to do that this month.
Organize my room.
I’m keeping this one on the list until it happens. It’s quite sad that it hasn’t happened yet, but this summer has been hectic! Here’s to hoping it actually can be accomplished this month.
2014 vacation pictures.
I have yet to finish editing the pictures from our cruise last year, and it’s seriously pathetic! They are getting done this month, for sure. There’s no other option at this point. It’s coming up to a year since we went and to not have the pictures and posts done is just tragic.
Such a gorgeous blog! Congrats on accomplishing so many goals this month. I love the idea of making goals each month, and being intentional in your progress for the year! I checked out your books from this month – I loved "Heaven Is For Real", and I need to look into "How to Climb the Eiffel Tower"! Organizing my room is my hardest thing too 😉 I love the goal of giving yourself grace – I am working on this as well! Good luck with John this month – it's one of my fave books of the Bible 🙂
