In June I gave myself very few goals to get through, because I was still feeling unmotivated after a rather unsuccessful month of May in terms of goals. Here’s the recap of how I did:
1) Finish my summer class & do as well as I possibly can
– I finished my summer class and studied my butt off for my final, but I still haven’t gotten my grade yet. This is causing me a lot of anxiety, I just need to know if I passed!
2) Continue to eat healthier, track my weight & make more time for exercise.
– I’d rather not talk about this one…. Truthfully, I fell off the healthy eating wagon in June. I KNEW I was too, but I couldn’t help it. I was stressed from school and although I was paying attention to everything I ate, I didn’t particularly care if it was healthy or not. This goal is definitely going into July.
3) Read at least 5 books
It would be super useful if I could remember what the last book was that I read in May, I’m about 90% sure I was halfway through ‘The Help’ when I set up my June goals. That means that this month I read 5 whole books plus the second half of The Help and the first half of the book I am reading now (the 4th Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants book)… so that makes about 6 books! Yay! Goal completed.
4) Accomplish two of my reading goals
– I completed one of them only, but that’s only because the other one I had in mind had an extra book to it that I didn’t even realize! That being said though, every single book I read this month was related to a reading goal: Room & The Help wre the last ones to complete 10 Heather’s Picks/Oprah’s Book Club Picks, and the 4 Sisterhood Books are 4/5 on ‘re-reading 5 books I loved when I was younger’. I would say this is more or less an accomplished goal even if I couldn’t cross two off.
5) Be more mindful
– I was vague about this one, but I just wanted to be more aware of the things I was doing, saying, and acting upon. I know without a doubt that I accomplished this goal. I blogged it about it several times & I also went out of my way to pay attention to peoples’ needs around me. I like having this goal in mind because it opened my eyes to the things I was doing that I a) liked b) didn’t like and allowed me to have more topics to write about!
In June I also crossed off a few of my 101 in 1,001 goals, which felt great. I went to a bunch of great concerts, I had some really fun times with friends & I finished school for REAL until September. It was a big month, but I also found a lot of time to relax. July and August are so far promising to be very busy, and that’s just how I like it. It was a productive month in terms of goals, I am just praying that I passed my summer class and I can move on from the 20 weeks I’ve already dedicated to Calculus.
How was your month?!
