July Round Up & August Goals
I'm pretty much planning on continuing with July's goals, and a few more. I kinda want to relax a bit in August though, I feel like July was so stressful with party planning! I'm also considering going back to brunette. I dyed my hair red in the hopes it would make me feel more like "myself" again, but it hasn't really worked. I don't know if it's because it's not the same shade I usually use (though it's very similar!) or if it's because I'm just not the same person I used to be...either way, I'm not as happy with it as I thought I would be. I never expected to be happier as a brunette, but I think I'm going to have to make the change back. Though I am considering getting balayage this time!
Lose another 5lbs
I know I said last month that I didn't want to concentrate on the weight side of things, but after losing 5lbs over as many weeks, it feels too good not to! I still want to concentrate on being healthy, rather than slim, but I don't think it hurts to have a goal. I'll also be keeping track on my new fitness insta account; follow me on there if you want to see my progress!
My sister and nieces are going away for a few days this month, and I'm going to attempt to eat entirely vegan while they're gone! Mum will be here with me too, so I'll be making her eat vegan as well! Well, I say 'making', she has said in the past that she'd give it a go with me. I've been saving some vegan recipes on Pinterest, and I can't wait to do the food shop in preparation!
In July, if I wasn't reading or party prepping, I was watching Nailed It or Sugar Rush on Netflix, and I really just want to bake something! I didn't get to bake anything for Charlie's party, but I really want to give it a go this month. Although I'm thinking some savoury muffins, rather than something sweet. Kassy was telling me about some of the fab things she makes for Jaxon last week, and I really want to try Charlie on some new things! Though I do also really want to play with icing...
I haven't really had the time to bullet journal the last few months but I really miss it! I really want to make more time for it this month, and get my layout looking swish.
My spending habits have been shocking the last couple of months and I need to be more careful with my money! I have been helping out with the grocery shop more since my sister moved in - which is fine! - but I still tend to buy unnecessary items that I really don't need. I also need to stop buying clothes in Poundland when I go to Sheppey. They're so cheap and cheerful that it's hard to say no but I can't keep buying £30's worth every time I go! Although, to be fair, I did end up buying the lovely jumpsuit I wore to Charlie's birthday party the last time I was there! But still, I need to stop. Once again, I'll be using the Wallet app to track my balance/budget, and I'll be attempting a weekly budget this time, rather than monthly.
Okay, so maybe I ended up giving myself more goals than I expected, but I'm feeling excited about August! What are your goals for August?
