For some reason, September is always one of my favourite months. I love the back to school feeling that’s in the air at this time of year, and the fact that the days are still light enough to enjoy too. It feels like being on the cusp of Summer and Autumn, and well, I’m here for it. Anyway, enough of that. Let’s see how I did with my goals for August..
Fitness challenge. This month I set myself quite a lot of daily goals. Me and my mum managed a plank challenge and we completed it! I ended up doing two 5 minute planks over the month, and it was a killer. But I feel so proud of us! I also ran both 15k and a 12k this month, aswell as doing a evening yoga routine every evening and setting up a step quota. It’s felt a really productive month in terms of fitness and goals.
Blog more. Well, I thought I blogged more this month, but on adding them up at the end of the month, I managed the exact same amount of posts as I have every month this year. Maybe I should just realise that a once a week post is all I can manage, but for some reason that’s hard for me to accept. I used to post so much more on here, but since I found creative photography on my Instagram, I don’t have enough time to put into this site anymore. I do still love it though, and it is still one of my passions, I just need to have a good think about what the future holds for me and this blog.
More time offline. I’ve been doing a Folklore edit challenge on my Instagram (post coming soon), so that means I’ve been on my phone A LOT recently. And to be truthful, I’m ready for a little break now. So that’s exactly what I’m planning on doing this month. Putting my phone down more and picking up new habits instead.
Upping my step count. I struggle to get a lot of walking in. I think when you drive to work and most places, it’s hard to get in your daily recommended quota. Because I knew there was no way I could do 10,000 off the bat without no build up, I set my goal to 5,000 and I achieved it every day. Now, I think I’m going to up it another thousand to 6,000, which somedays I’ve been doing anyway. I’ve been feeling so much better since I’ve been moving more and getting outside a lot more, too. I really believe it makes such a difference to your health and well-being.
A new membership! After being tempted the last few weeks, I’ve finally joined Vix’s membership, Grow & Glow. Her zoom masterclass that she did the other week really inspired me and re-ignited a passion for social media, so I bit the bullet and signed up last night. This month I’m excited to dig in to all the resources they have on offer and see where it goes.
Do you have any goals for September?
