Happy Monday and happy last day of the month. I’ll be posting two posts again today, I hope you don’t mind.
April for me has been a crazy month, I think it’s been the best month yet. I’ve been so happy, busy and working hard on myself and I feel that I am on the right track. I’ll talk about this more in Wednesdays post. For now, let’s have a recap of my April goals.
My April goals
Stick to my fitness goals –I am not happy with my weight and the way I look and I try so hard to change it. If you know me or have followed me for a while, you would know the cycle I get trapped in where I work out, eat healthily but I don’t lose weight, but as soon as I have a binge on unhealthy crap, I gain. I am trying something new to try and help me shift a few pounds.
Save money –I am working more shifts at the moment (thank the lord!) so I am getting a bigger income, Obviously I get months that are a little short in money and I struggle to get the things I need, so I have decided that I am going to set up a savers account (why I never had one before I don’t know) and put money in there each month and save for a rainy day.
Keep my space clean –I decided completely last minute to change my room around, to get rid of my TV and create a full blogging space where I can focus on my blog and my blog only. I kind of have a habit of piling my things up though which makes everything untidy, so I am going to work on sorting things out straight away instead of leaving them.
Drink two litres of water a day –Like I have said before, water and I don’t really have a great friendship. This month though, I am going to do my best to like it. Even if I drink 1.5 litres instead of 2 everyday I will still be happy.
Study –Yes I don’t go to school, college or Uni but I love to learn, so I have decided to sign up to some online courses and extend my learning. Fingers crossed that one day I can go to Uni!
Take more pictures –I have really let my passion for photography slip and I am so gutted! I used to go out every weekend and take new snaps and now, my roll is just full of blog post pictures instead, I am not complaining about the blog pictures but it would be refreshing to go out and see the world through a lens again.
Change my social medias –I need a good sort out, today I changed my highlights on my Instagram, I am thinking of resetting my theme on there too! I want to delete and restart my Facebook page, delete my tweets and start fresh. I am also going to delete my Pinterest boards and no longer use that as a way to generate blog views. It’s time I made them look the way I want them too without worrying what brands/other people think of them.
Work on my Youtube –Although I cannot start vlogging again until May because of everything going on this month I want to change my YouTube up, maybe create main channel videos as well as vlogs. I want to give it a real make over.
Read more –I always distract myself when I want to read, I always find something blog wise to do so I need to take an hour off each evening just to chill and read. I don’t care how many books I read this month, it would just be nice to sit down and read.
Stay true to myself and carry on reaching towards my goals –I need to be selfish, after all it’s only myself that can reach my goals. I need to do things that will get me to where I want to be, take risks even though it will piss people off. I need to start living and creating my own life instead of sitting around trying to please my friends because I am not following their path, I have dreams that I will achieve, if I have to leave them behind, I am willing to do so.
Did I achieve them?
Stick to my fitness goals – I really wanted to stick to this but I just didn’t, I did get out and do more exercise. I worked a lot more this month which means I was up and walking about more instead of chilling in my bed. I just haven’t lost any weight.
Save money – I did such an adult thing at the beginning of the month, I set up a savings account! Well that savings account now has money in it. Not a lot to be honest because I brought myself a new pair of shoes, but it still has some.
Keep my space clean – I was doing so well with this unil Saturday when I was getting ready for a wedding and I had changed my outfit about 5 times, I had my makeup everywhere, my books moved to find my jewelry, it’s just a complete mess. I’m going to clean it tomorrow though, I haven’t been well the past few days so I’ve just put it off.
Drink two litres of water every day – I have made an effort to drink more water but it’s definitely not been 2 litres. But I have been drinking more water then juice so that’s an improvement.
Study – I have been doing a forensic science course online and I have been working really hard on it. So yes I have been studying.
Take more pictures – The only pictures I have taken are blog posts pictures, pictures from the wedding or pictures of my cousin’s so I’m not sure if that counts. I just haven’t been anywhere else to take pictures.
Change my social medias – I definitely did this, I have a new feed on my Instagram, my blog logo has changed, my Pinterest is currently empty because I’m planning to do something different with it.I’m definitely working a lot harder on my social medias, and my Instagram has really grown.
Work on my YouTube – My first YouTube video goes up on Wednesday! I’m doing so well with my socials!
Read more – I definitely did this. I’m so happy that I’ve finished my one of us is lying book. As I said in yesterday’s post I’ll upload a post on it soon.
Stay true to myself and carry on reaching towards my goals – I have completely smashed some of my goals this month and I am on the right path to reach more! I couldn’t be prouder of myself for the hard work I have put in and the length I’ll go to to create content. I should definitely turn this into a job!
