Monthly Goals for August {2017}

August! It's August! Like, the 8th month of 2017. How did we get here? Although, I'm pretty excited about it being August because that means we're that much closer to my favorite time of year, fall. And my favorite holiday, Halloween. And my favorite sport's season, football.

And, after all that is over, we'll only about a month away from Pearson's graduation and about two months away from moving! We're super excited for all of this and to be done with grad school and to start a new life. So, I'm not too upset about this year going by quickly! Now that may change in 4 or 5 months, but for right now, I'll take it!

But anyway, I digress... Let's move on to my goals for the month, shall we?
Monthly Goals for August

July:

Word of the Year (confidence):

  • Not work myself so hard. Spread out my to-do lists and schedule my tasks (including self-care and workouts).
  • Start journalling again to help when I go to therapy sessions.

Spiritual:

  • Attend Church every Sunday and Wednesday this month (at least when we're in town).

Physical:

  • Complete the 21 Day Fix EXTREME program. (I didn't because of health issues)
  • Stay active in my Beachbody lifestyle challenge group. (I didn't because of health issues)
  • Get out of bed by 7:00 am for work every work day.

Reading:

  • Read at least two fiction books
  • Read No More Perfect Marriages by Mark & Jill Savage (I'm part of a blog tour for this)
  • Listen to The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy (My "Personal Development" book for my Beachbody lifestyle challenge group)

Marriage:

  • Celebrate our anniversary!!!
  • Enjoy our trip to Portland, Oregon this weekend! (I ended up not going. But Pearson enjoyed it)
  • Enjoy our trip home to see our childhood friend get married!

Blog:

  • Update pictures and SEO in at least 10 old posts (I have a list of posts I want to update)
  • Reach 2,000 Twitter followers (I'm SO close!)

Home:

  • Keep our home relatively clean (especially the dishes)

30x30:

  • Stay within our budget. (with some circumstances out of our control, this didn't happen. But we also could have done better with what we could control.)

Bonus:

  • I actually went to see a doctor about my stomach issues. I might share more on the blog about that later.
  • I finally got rid of all of the stuff we collected when we decluttered last month. Most went to Goodwill and some went to different consignment shops. We actually made some good money selling it!
  • I attended The Dating Divas' Referral Partners Boot Camp, learned a lot about affiliate marketing, and made some decent money with The Divas this month. 
    • Join me as a partner here - it's free to sign up and all the boot camp videos are still available. They help you every step of the way. It's easy money and The Divas are awesome!
  • I did a bunch of little tasks for my blog like updated the photos on my Facebook page, added linktree to my Instagram profile, and started posting more to my IG stories and Facebook page.

Those are my goals! There are a few more than I've set in past months but I think they're doable. Especially since one, I did a lot of bonus goals in July and two, August is a lot less busy than June and July were. What are your goals for the month? Thanks for reading!

  1. A BLOGGER BUNDLE!!! What?! I'm already excited for you, and you haven't given any good details yet.

    Also, you're killing it on Facebook. Your stuff shows up in my News Feed, which means your organic reach is at least reaching me!

    Health issues are the worst, so I hope your medical visit was fruitful.

    Love this! I need to do this so desperately. As soon as I plan to something throws everything out of wack, i.e., sickness, financial obligations, etc.
