A New Day Within A New Month

Can you believe it is July already, where is 2017 going?? I need it to slow down a little so i can catch my footing. I had decided not to make goals over the past few months. I get so frustrated when i falter so i didn’t think it worth it. However, i have found that it does hold me accountable. I mean, i have them written down so i can see them everyday on my desk, but i have so much fun interacting with you guys.

July starts a new month, a new slate to perfect the unperfected (at least give it the ol’ go), keep motivated, to get a little nudge from you guys as well.

I’m starting small with these goals as i really want to turn them into accomplishments. I have been really distracted and vibrating super low lately. Life has got me down to where i am overwhelmed, feel trapped, and scared of the future (that’s a whole other story).

□ Lose 5lbs
□ Eat healthier
□ Stay hydrated
□ Workout 3 times a week
□ Read 1 book

□ Track stats – fb like page, twitter, instagram
□ Post twice a week
□ Be more active in Facebook groups

I want to get my eating habits back in order and stop eating so much processed foods, uhh! It seems like that’s what I’ve lived on for the last 6 months, with little effort to exercise and it shows.

I haven’t don’t attempted my nightly yoga routine in months, i am so exhausted from my brain running itself in circles all day.

I have been good about my morning routine though, which i love because it wakes me up. I do it before i get my coffee, how crazy is that?!

As i said, these goals are really doable and who knows what this month may bring, i hope it’s different than the last 6 months, those were pretty intense. Anxiety and depression had me in a choke hold for the majority of June & i refuse to let it in July too.

What’s one of the goals your excited about for this new month?

  1. Wishing you all the best with your goals this month and hope you can keep the anxiety/depression at bay. I know myself that this can be a delicate struggle but focusing on goals each month allows me to look into the future and sometimes helps.

    Also that’s great about the am yoga–what a beautiful way to start the day! 🙂

  2. I’m sorry your June was less than stellar, but it’s a new month! I hope things go a lot better. I definitely need to work on my water intake. I’m trying! I’ve never been much of a drinker, so it can be tough.

  3. Ahhh, Leslie, so good to see you in the FB group. 🙂 I’m with you on the nightly routines – they always fall by the wayside for me, too. Maybe we’re just too tired in the evenings or something. I need to be better about it, too! Lots of love and luck for your July goals! xo

  4. goals are always great to set. if you’re having trouble working out at night do it first thing in the morning.

  5. These are fantastic goals for July! I am with you on the eating better and drinking more water. I get so caught up in work during the day I sometimes forget to hydrate and I need to be better about that!

  6. Your personal goals look a lot like mine!! We should create an accountability group to help encourage one another in meeting the goals!

  7. Hey girl,
    I try to set goals but often am reluctant to out of fear I’ll be a big fail and won’t accomplish any or most/all of my goals. But I have been trying to do so for the last couple of months, setting small goals and that has been doable, and fun to jot down, too.
    I seriously cannot believe its July already, it’s so insane how time passes so quickly when you’re older.
    Have a good week, Leslie!

  8. Thanks for the transparency and I wish you well on all of your goals. My two decided to take a break from setting goals. Especially on social media. I’m still not ready to start up again but I am rooting for you!

    1. Sometimes you just need a break from social media, i totally understand that. It’ll be here waiting for ya whenever ya decide your ready. I hope your having a great day.

  9. i love reading other’s goals. i set blog goals every month too!

    1. I will have to stop by to check out your goals, i wanted to start off with something simple and ease back into it. Good luck with yours too!

  10. I love the fact that you set realistic do-able goals instead of over stretching yourself. I need to take a leaf out of your book. I’m very excited about a short story book I’m planning to release and my aim is to get the first story finished by Autumn. It’s attainable and I’m so enjoying the process.

    1. A short story book, I want to read it, will you have it up for sale? Hah, i tried to pick goals i thought to actually achieve this month. Maybe throw in something ridiculous by the end of the year, hah. It’s awesome your enjoying the process, good luck with the autumn deadline.

  11. I always love making resolutions! They always make me stay focused! You have some great goals, keep it up!

    1. Yeah, i think they help me stay focused too. The months i didn’t make them i had nothing to strive for. Happy July!

  12. I love love love setting goals. Likely due to my type A personality, if I don’t set goals, I seem to wander a lot more. Your goals are doable, totally dependent on you, and in reasonable amounts! All big necessary things for good goals! Happy July!

    1. Maybe I need to set goals every month, I have noticed over the months I haven’t set goals I’m not really pushing myself to do anything. Good luck with your goals this month too!

  13. Great goals. I should start writing down my goals – maybe I would stick with them then..

    1. It is so hard for me to follow through if I don’t write them down, hah I forget about them and everything else.

  14. Thank you very much for providing such a useful article. I found a big value in it and I hope others will as well.

    1. Thank you for stopping by.

  15. I think this is great for accountability 😃 Your goals seem attainable too! Good luck

    1. Hah I need all the help I can get. I have been working for myself over the passed few months sand have really slacked off. I need to refocus.

  16. Nice post and yes, great plans. Good luck! You can do it! 😉

    1. Thank you so much, I needed motivation in my life. Hah

  17. I like the idea of mid-year resolutions 🙂 You can do it, you can do it! I will set some goals for myself too, you have inspired me 🙂

    1. Have you decided on any mid year goals yet? Whatever you come up with I am sure you’ll knock them out with no problem. I can’t believe the year is half over!

  18. Good luck with the goals! I have really working on being more consistent with emailing my subscribers in a newsletter and it’s been paying off. I need to get back into a routine for my Facebook groups too, it’s a great way to grow traffic and network with other similar bloggers. Stopping by from SITS Sharefest and tweeted!

    1. I really need to get my newsletter together and get more subscribers, that’d be nice. I don’t know where to start with that though. I love Facebook groups though. That is where most of my traffic comes from. Good luck with this month too.

  19. Great plans for July. All the best!!!!

    1. Thank ya, I wish you the best too.
