Monthly Goals for July {2018}

Happy July! We are officially more than half-way through 2018! Can you believe it? Also, is it just me or is this summer just flying by? It's already time to be thinking about back-to-school! Crazy right?

Anyway, this month is our anniversary month. As I mentioned last week, that means I'm going to be focusing on anniversaries here on the blog as well as my social media. There will be gift guides, celebration ideas, and giveaways! So get excited!

Oh! That reminds me!

Let me know in the comments...

Would you like to see giveaways here on the blog, on Instagram, or somewhere else? Where would be most convenient for you?

Alright let's move on to my goals, shall we?

How I did in June:

Spiritual:

  • Read (or listen to) Matthew chapters 1 through 4 at least three times per week
  • Get up in time to go to Sunday School class every Sunday
  • Do the reading and homework for Sunday School class every week

Physical:

  • Stick to a healthy diet, only eating out on the weekends (we stopped Keto because we were both having stomach issues. I am now currently on a modified low FODMAP diet and Pearson got really bad acid reflux from all the fat)
  • Work out at least 4 times per week (hiking and walking on the weekends counts)

Mental:

Marriage:

  • One intentional date or trip per week
  • Spend intentional time in the evenings talking over dinner rather than turning on The Walking Dead as soon as Pearson gets home
  • Finish planning our anniversary trip

Blog:

  • Post on the blog twice per week
    • I did this all but one week
  • Read through the Instagram Monetization guide by The Social Media Posse.
  • Plan out my anniversary month series for the blog

Home:

  • Deep clean our apartment
  • Finish decorating and setting up everything. 
    • We still haven't put up curtains or gotten a picture for behind our kitchen table

Bonus: 

  • I organized our guest room closet, our outdoor storage closet, and our kitchen
  • We bought a bed for the guest room and set it up
  • I created several "systems" - Cleaning schedule, meal plans, and routines for my work day (I just haven't stuck to them well yet)
  • We hosted a game night at our apartment.
  • I created a printable pack and submitted it to a blogger bundle
So I did pretty terrible on these goals but I did do some bonus stuff, so that's good I guess...

Resetting in July:

Spiritual:

  • Work through this month's lesson and bible reading plan on the SHE Refined program. I'm super excited for this!

Physical:

  • Stick to a healthy diet, only eating out on the weekends
  • Try the SHE Refined program juice recipes once per week.
  • At least do the 4 SHE Refined workouts for the month every week

Mental:

Marriage:

Blog:

  • Publish all the posts I have planned for my Anniversary Series on time!

Home:

  • Put up curtains
  • Get the picture for our one still blank wall printed and hung up
My goals for this month may seem a little more complicated than usual. That's mostly because of a few programs I've enrolled in that I'm super excited about: SHE Refined, the 10 Minute Marriage Challenge, and Productivity Boot Camp. I really think these three programs will help me to reset every aspect of my life as we head into the second half of 2018. Here's to making it great!
