JULY GOALS 2017




Admittedly, I've never really been the kind of person to set goals. I see people doing it, left, right and centre and these people just seem to be so impeccably organised; I reckoned it was time to start setting my own goals this month. I'm going to aim to do it every-other month, just to get into the swing of things. This months goals are:
● BLOGGING 

- REACH 200 FOLLOWERS ON INSTA
I know, 200 followers might sound like a room full of people to you, but I've only recently set up an Instagram account specifically for my blog. I decided to do this to bring more engagement between me and my readers. Considering I only recently set up the account, it's growing fairly comfortably, and I'm really happy with the posts that are going up on there. As I'm writing this, my goal of reaching 200 is around 70% complete - not bad for the first week of July (if I do say so myself).
- REACH 500 FOLLOWERS ON BLOGLOVIN'
Bloglovin' seems to be really difficult lately and, admittedly, I haven't done much promo for it since being back to blogging. My Bloglovin' follower count has been sitting over 400 for a while now so, this month, I'm hoping to gain a few more.
- POST AT LEAST 6-8 POSTS
Yep. I am going to aim to post MORE than just once a week this month, which is far from the once in a blue moon that used to happen. I'm getting organised while I can so I'm really hoping that this one is achievable. Let me know what posts you wanna see!
- PUT MYSELF OUT THERE
If there's anything I am learning the most with my blog recently is that, you cannot gain engagement with readers by just sitting there taking pretty pictures and writing something nice. You have to put yourself out there. I am starting to get a lil bit business-y with my blog and I really hope it helps grow my readership.

 HEALTH 

- WORK OUT AT LEAST TWICE A WEEK
I might literally have to force myself, and twice a week might sound pointless to you, but it's better than nothing. I've decided to get fitter recently but, most importantly, be unapologetic about it. There's no rule book for exercising. No mandatory amount of times it should happen or how long for. I want to exercise on my terms to ensure that I still remain a happy bunny.
- DRINK MORE
I wish this was 'drink more' in the sense of awarding myself for every bottle of vodka that I empty. Nope. It's the everlasting goal that I have to drink more water. I'll keep you updated but I can't promise much.
- SKIP DESSERT
Part of feeling fitter in July might mean that, every now and again, I might have to resist the temptation of a cake. I definitely have sweet tooth but I think I'm going to start reaching for healthier options like fruit or yogurt.
- GO FOR A WALK ONCE A WEEK
There are some really lovely places to go walking in my region so, not only do I want to take advantage of the scenery, but I also want to get out once a week for some fresh air and a bit of exercise. I find that exercise like this is the best kind because you don't realise that you're getting fitter and the fresh air tends to make you sleep better at night.


LIFE ●

- GET A JOB
Ah. I feel like I'm pulling myself along on my hands and knees with this one. Getting a new job is so difficult. I'd really love a job ASAP. I would settle with at least a job interview completed at the end of the month, but if I can take it a step further then I'd probs treat myself to an extra chocolate or something.
- FINISH A BOOK
Steady on, Alice. Finishing a whole book, for me in my post exam sloth phase, will be a struggle. I need time to adjust and calm down from the exam adrenaline. I also don't want to force myself. I've forced myself to read books before and it just spoils the enjoyment.
- HAVE AT LEAST ONE DRIVING LESSON
I started driving lessons in March 2016, then stopped for exams this year. I'm honestly not a fan of driving - I hate the close proximity, the pressure and I'm just not interested in cars, but I know that it has to be done. In July, I want to at least plan to get back to driving and stop putting it off. And, as for a long term goal, I'd love to have passed my test by March next year!


What are you planning to achieve this month?
