2014: August Goals

Monthly goals cover

Hi there and welcome! Its that time again when we need to set new monthly goals and I will confess right now I do not feel like setting anything for August I just want to chill. This attitude I am exhibiting right now I do not like hence I will force myself to come up with August Goals that will be challenging enough for my bug head.

***The rules are as follows and note I took these straight from the hosts blog page.***
How it works:
The linky goes live on the first Wednesday of each month.
  1. Follow all three hosts:Β My So-Called Chaos,Β A Peek at Karen’s World, &Β Jenee Thompson
  2. Write up a post recapping previous goals & setting goals for the next month.Β The post needs to include the Monthly Goals button!
  3. Link-up your Monthly Goals post in the linky below! See host’s page
  4. Visit other blogs in the linky to show support!

Monthly Goals

July Goals

  • Read and Review 4 books –> SUCCESS
  • Book ticket to Zambia –> Reserved, paying fully this month.
  • Host 1 year blogaversary giveaway –> SUCCESS, thanks for the help and love to all who participated and supported me.
  • Support more blogs –> SUCCESS, I felt it’s important to support one another as blogging can sometimes be difficult.
  • Continue with the “Your weekly weight-loss Plan” linky –> Failed, started then stopped then started now put on hold but will revive soon once I get new plan.
  • Continue to improve the blogs –> there is always room for improvement.

August Goals

  • Read & Review 5 Books, I have so many books to read, review and share with you guys. Obviously they will be featured on my 2nd blog.
  • Be more proactive and spend time with family & friends. This month is full of birthdays, baby showers plus other events so need to be proactive bad organised.
  • Start eating healthier, with less than 150 days till Christmas I need room for the cakes so need to starting behaving now so to misbehave during Christmas. (Not what you were expecting huh!!)
  • Go to cinema at least twice this month, I want to see a couple of movies including: expendables 3 etc.
  • Need to get my mojo back both personally and otherwise, my body for some reason or the other can’t seem to get enough rest even after a 7 hour sleep. It’s so weird that a 4 hour sleep is helping me feel more energised than a 7 hour sleep.

These are my “force upon myself”, what are your goals this month! Week! Year?

    Great goals — especially get your mojo back — I think I could use a little help in the mojo department too & sleep is such a huge factor! Good luck!

  15. August 7, 2014 / 8:57 pm

    My goals are to workout 3-5 days a week (and get up at 5 in the morning to do it). I simply have too many distractions during the day. This year is all about me getting in great shape!

  16. August 7, 2014 / 7:46 pm

    Love those goals! Now you have me thinking of some goals to make for myself πŸ™‚

    Great goals. I seem to let my goals slip outta my mind lol. Def with you on eating healthier

  20. August 7, 2014 / 4:43 pm

    Zambia?! How cool!
    I totally understand needing to get your mojo back– I think there is something about August that just has me totally bummed out. I don’t know why but I’ve been having that same exact sleeping issue.

    Great goals!

  22. August 7, 2014 / 7:21 am

    Good job!!! I usually only sleep 5 or 6 hours a night. It takes a toll, too.

  23. August 7, 2014 / 4:35 am

    7 hours of sleep never does it for me either.. more like 9!

  24. August 7, 2014 / 4:35 am

    Goals are seriously so important. If you arent working toward something then what are you doing, ya know?

    I am not a list maker, but I have seen it recently on a few blogs and might figure out a way to start doing this. I love your very ambitious goals. The fact you succeeded in so many in the July list is amazing. Thanks for the inspiration.
