Summer Goals

Tuesday, 18 July 2017

Boy do I love setting myself some goals. I know we're already partly through summer already, but I wanted to share with you some things I want to kick ass with in the next couple of months.

Fall in love with the gym again.
Last summer I was in the ideal situation. My internship was in the building next to a gym, and also the gym my boyfriend went to too. This made it super easy to pop in straight after work and having Jamie there to help me with what I was doing and motivate me got me into a real routine and I ended up really enjoying training. This year I'm working elsewhere and in a completely different situation. Although I've signed up to a gym I'm not quite in a routine or feeling like I 'want' to go. This month I will plan some workouts and make sure at the beginning of each week I know what I'm doing.

Start my dissertation research.
This is so scary. My dissertation is due in in January, and my research needs to be sorted by the time I go back in September, so this summer holiday isn't going to be entirely work-free. I need to write up my questionnaires, post them, collect them and then transfer all the data into a spreadsheet. Big stuff!

Be sensible with my money.
Over summer I'm working full time which is going to give me a bit of dollar for when I head back to Uni. Although I have lots planned, I want to try and be sensible with my money.

Focus on growing my blog.
By growing, I mean both in following but also in general. I want to really up my blogging game, get my photography where I want it to be, and start being a bit more 'out there' and unique with my blog. I'm not massively creative but I'd like to do a few different styled posts if I can.

Get out there!
I want to get out this summer. Explore and do new things. The more memories the better!!

What are your Summer goals?

  5. These all sound like great goals and good luck with the dissertation stuff! I completely feel you with the goal of falling in love with the gym again at the moment. I go to the gym usually around 5 times a week and have been doing so for years but right now I'm totally not loving it and cant seem to get in the zone - I go, but I dont really push myself and that's not like me! So one of my summer goals is definitely to get my gym groove back. Plus work on making my blog content as good as it can be and like you - make memories! Sophie xxx

  6. These all sound like fab goals!! It sound's like you've got a good summer planned too. I wish you the best of luck with your goals xx

  8. Ahhh the best of luck with your dissertation! Cannot believe I was in the same position last year, if you ever need any advice or someone to rant to, you can always drop me a message lovely!

  9. These are all exactly the same goals I have except switch dissertation with regular uni work (I'm only in second year)! Finding motivation to go to the gym is always tough, but I find that when you force yourself to go for those first few weeks, even if it is only for half an hour, it starts to just become daily routine x

  10. Best of luck with your Summer goals! I also want to try to focus more on growing my blog. I've been putting lots more time into it recently and it's paying off, so it's really making me want to keeping working away at it. I hope your dissertation research goes well x

  11. I want to try and be sensible with my money this summer as well, so far I've not done so well but I'm going to try really hard to be sensible with August's pay haha!
