She’s a Goal Digger
Since the beginning of 2017 I have been setting myself monthly goals, why? I believe setting goals will help me stay motivated and I hope by sharing my goals I will inspire you to set your own. Today I will tell you how I got on with my July goals and what my goals for our August.
Let’s get to it.
July Goals: Review
I turned 25 last month and I thought it would be motivating to write a bucket list of all the things I wish to achieve before my next birthday!
- Write a bucket list for the year ahead.
I decided to write a 26 before 26 list. I found this exercise quite hard until I realised that there’s no wrong or right answer, it’s simply the things I want to achieve before I turn 26. But for now, I will be keeping this list private 🙂

I wanted to be more organised this month by preparing posts one month ahead of schedule.
- Prepare blog posts to be one month ahead of schedule.
Well, umm, this was a complete fail! I didn’t manage to get ahead of my blog post schedule at all. I do have some days off work in August so maybe I can try again then.
Health & Fitness
My July goals for health and fitness was to keep up my fitness levels by running regularly and by introducing exercise into my morning routine.
- Continue running and introduce exercises into my morning routine.
Continue running, done. Introduce exercise to my morning routine, umm which morning routine? No seriously, I so badly want to get into the habit of waking up early and being productive, but lately it’s a bit hit and miss. I was first encouraged to create a morning routine after I read the amazing book The Miracle Morning* but I need that excitement and encouragement again. I will definitely be re-reading this book for inspiration!
If you’re thinking of starting a morning routine or need some encouragement to get of our your slump then I would seriously recommend reading The Miracle Morning*. You can check out my review of the book here.

If you’re up to date with my blog posts then I’m sure you’re aware we’re currently doing ALOT of work in our new home. Yet despite the mess I arranged for my girls to come over for a BBQ last month.
- Host an ace BBQ for my girls.
The weather actually managed to stay nice, despite a little bit of rain but that didn’t ruin our fun! I was super nervous before the girls arrived which sounds so silly because they’re my best friends. I guess I just wanted it all to be perfect for their first visit.
I mentioned earlier that my morning routine has been a bit hit and miss. To get myself back on track and to gain some much needed encouragement and motivation I’m planning on re-read The Miracle Morning*. I absolutely loved this book, it’s the reason I started a morning routine in the first place but I just need that little bit of inspiration again.
- Re-read The Miracle Morning*.
My blogging goal for July was to be more organised with my blog posts by preparing posts one month ahead of schedule. I didn’t manage to complete this goal so I’m going to try again this month, I have a little bit of time off work in August so hopefully this will help me be more organised.
- Try again: Prepare blog posts to be one month ahead of schedule.
Health & Fitness
I’ve done something crazy, I’ve entered a half marathon in November! I’ve done a number of 10k runs now and I thought it was time to up my game and give myself a new challenge. My fitness goal for August and most likely until December will be to train for the half marathon. I want the run to be fun and easy, basically I don’t want to be hating life and regretting every step during the race!
- Train for the half marathon
Family are everything, and I want to ensure I create as many wonderful memories with them as possible so I can look back with no regrets. As I have some time off work this August I want to spend some quality time with my two lovely nans.
- Spend quality time with my nans.
