July Goals

Hello, July. Please be kinder to me than June was. No broken ribs. No heartbreaking news. That's not too much to ask, is it? Because June broke my heart, as well as my ribs, but more about that another time. I'll be fine, it's just a setback. I've just got to keep keeping on! And what better way to do that than by setting some new goals for the month ahead? But first, a quick look back at my goals for June and whether I achieved them.

1. Read before bed. I've not been doing this every night, as some nights I'm just too damn tired. But I never set myself the goal to read every night before bed. Just some nights. And I certainly achieved that.

2. Do a car boot. I did two, actually. And made around £20 in profit each time. Not too shabby. Plus it freed up a lot of space in our house. Winner, winner.

3. Don't spend more than I earn. Hahahahahahahahahaha. That's all I have to say on this one.

But hey, as Meat Loaf himself said, two out of three ain't bad.

Moving on, here are my goals for July.

1. Start to, and stick with a diet. My weight has become a big issue, and when even your husband suggests you should lose some weight, you know you're going to have to. So this month I'm all about healthy eating and, when my broken ribs allow, exercise. And I want to carry that on going forwards for the rest of this year, and the next. Goodbye chocolate, crisps and takeaway. Hello fruit, yogurts and home-cooked meals.

2. Read, at least, one adult book. Reading children's books is definitely helping me overcome my reading OCD. But I really miss getting my teeth into a good book geared up for adults. And I have so many wonderful books to read, I'm honestly spoiled for choice. So this month I want to read at least one adult book.

3. Overcome my anxiety and make it to a family meal. My aunt has organised a belated Father's Day meal with my grandparents, and I've been invited. Usually Chris would come with me and it'd be hunky-dory. But it's been booked for a weekday, and he'll be at work, so I'm going to have to drive myself. Hopefully I can overcome my anxiety about the drive to a new place and enjoy the family meal. 

Wish me luck!

What are your goals for July?
