August Small Goals



I completely lost July. I have been so busy with work things and trying to figure out how to get groceries and have a social life and sleep, but I'm definitely back on track again so I'm here to jump back in on Nicole's Monthly Small Goals round up.

Last time I participated it was June, so first let's get old business out of the way and see how I did.

Wear sunscreen more. I am definitely doing better at this! I wear sunscreen almost every day I leave the house. Now my big problem is reapplying, but since most of my days I get sun in the morning and not much after that, so I'm ticking this one off as a win.

Edit my wardrobe. I'm working through Nicole's Feel Good Dress Better Workbook very slowly but I'm already learning a ton about where I've been going wrong with my closet. I sent a ton of stuff to ThredUp and hopefully I'll get some change out of it-- if not the items they don't sell will be responsibly recycled so I feel really good using them. (Get $10 credit through this referral link.)

Read two books. I'm definitely failing here, but I have been spending a good amount of time outside work being social and sleeping, which is not a bad thing! So many people are in town so I've definitely prioritized going out over staying in with a book, but I'm sure I'll get through these books eventually. It might just have to wait until the sun starts to fade.

Update my about and contact pages. I've updated my about-- but not my contact. That's a half a win, right?

Alright, now that that (very) old business is handled, let's get onto my goals for this month.

Be more active on Instagram. Twitter is where I spend most of my time but I feel like I'm missing out on a lot by not being on Instagram, especially since more of my IRL friends are on Instagram than on Twitter.

Pack my lunch. I recently booked a trip to London and Iceland for this fall so there has never been a better motivation for me to figure out how to make packing lunch part of my everyday life.

Go to the gym. I've honestly been telling myself that I've been getting out more (which is true and great) so I don't need to go to the gym, but a big part of my getting out more has also involved food that leans more toward "irresponsible choice" than "responsible choice." Frankly, I love eating foods for their enjoyment value and nutritional value takes a back seat-- but if I'm going to live like that, I really have to be less sedentary. I'm eating myself into a cycle of sluggishness. I know once I start going to the gym, I'll be better motivated to eat garbage food a little bit less since it's a lot more noticeable when you feel bad at than gym than when you are watching netflix.

What are your goals for the month?
