Goals night(s) and August goals


July was super hectic because I was away from home for 11 nights, 12 if you count the one night I arrived at 11.30 due to a cancelled flight. I still maintain that I’d rather arrive home in one piece hours later than…. not 😮


Things that went well

  1. I met my sleep goal again 07 hrs 15 mins per night, on average. I will add that it’s about 6:50 during the week and well over 8 hours on the weekends.
  2. For the first time EVER, I met my Fitbit goal (which is not 10 000 steps per day). A note on this – I find that if I’m realistic with what I can achieve, I’m more likely to stay motivated and excited. So if this is you, go into your Fitbit settings and change your goal to something reasonable. Maybe start at 5000 steps?
  3. The kids turned 6. We had a science party which both the kids and I loved. I didn’t love the non-RSVPs (as you all know) and I’ve already said next year will be very different (separate, small parties).
  4. We had some great family time on holiday. It’s scary how quickly the kids are growing up. Case in point – first holiday we have not needed a single plaster (Band-Aid)!
  5. House stuff – painting and more painting. I also got people in to quote on everything under the sun…. so now to make decisions and execute some of them … when it’s a bit warmer.
  6. I actually started the #Konmari process with my website. I asked “does this spark joy?” about each of my product pages and if the answer was yes, the page stayed up. Everything else has been deleted! It feels great. Please get yourself a copy of Discover Yourself and check out the more streamlined site.
  7. I read 6 books, most of which were great. Have a look at my Goodreads.
  8. Took 10 photowalks which is why I’m so behind on my photos but it was WONDERFUL.

*other things that went well – I noticed that this is the first year I haven’t had a cold sore in winter yet…. and I haven’t had the flu either 🙂


Things that did not go well

  1. I’m feeling stretched thin too much. To that end, I’m going to be doing a time budget sometime this week and I hope to report back in a week or two.
  2. I’m so far behind with my Bible reading I fear my Bible buddies have given up on me 😮
  3. I feel like I’m neglecting a few areas of my life.

Projects for August

  1. I want to finish reading/ listening to The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying up, and then #Konmari (I’m making it a verb) my clothes and books, and the kids’ clothes and books.
  2. More house stuff – ughhhhhh
  3. Write a new birthday list 🙂

How was your July?

What do you have planned for August?
