Here’s how my goals went in July:
1) Stop wasting all my spare time on SongPop on Facebook
I didn’t even have to wean myself off it, I just got bored eventually. Not to say that I haven’t stopped wasting time. I will never stop wasting time.
2) Make an exercise plan for each week and try my best to stick to it
I’m getting a lot better at this.
3) Sell five things on eBay
I currently have seven items of clothing for sale on eBay, including some snazzy things from H&M, ASOS and others. (How sly of me to stick that in here mere hours before the auctions end. How very sly.) (link fixed!)
Not bad, not bad. Onwards to my goals for the coming month!
This is self explanatory. And non optional. But it needs doing, and it needs doing with some modicum of sense. Which is not something I often possess while throwing things into a suitcase. The first step will be not starting the night before I go away. I’m not quite sure what the second step will be.
2) Lose seven pounds
I kind of hate myself when I say things like this – do I sound like Regina George? – and I’m aware that it’s a bit inappropriate to discuss weight so lackadaisically on here so my apologies if this makes you feel uncomfortable. I’m a bit podgy and out of shape at the moment and I’d like to be less podgy and more in shape. I’m eating healthy food, doing a wee bit of calorie counting (I know, I know) and upping the exercise. I shall try not to moan and bang on and act like anyone else ought to care about what I’m eating or how much I weigh, but there may be blog posts about exercise and food – only fun stuff though, I promise! (I would ideally like to lose a stone but baby steps, people.)
Sad, isn’t it, that I have to make being sociable a goal for the month? Well I do. Being sociable is bloody hard when a great deal of my friends live quite far away, I don’t have very much money, I work quite a lot, and I never get weekends off. I feel that I am becoming a recluse and a hermit and I would like to rectify this.
One of my goals for July was not to get swanky new spectacles, but I got some anyway. Here’s a picture of them so you can share in their loveliness. They’re blue and orange and while I’m not forced to grin like an idiot, as per this photograph, every time I wear them, sometimes I do. (Please note that the small snatch of purple shirted man you can see behind me is my optician, as I took this picture in the mirror while stood in the opticians. He saw what I was doing and did a double take and laughed at me. Awkward situations are awesome.)
