Here we are, already in the month of August. I can't believe how fast the time has gone! The end of next month marks an entire year that we have been in the state of Massachusetts. Back to what I was writing. We are already into the month of August and I wanted to try making a list of goals that I will stick with. My list of goals will be short that way the things included will actually be doable.
1. Work on my nutrition. I have been working out semi regularly and while I'm proud of that, and I can see minute differences, my big problem is food. That has always been my downfall when it comes to losing weight. My first goal for the month of August is to slowly fix my nutritional habits. I'm starting small so that I dont burn myself out. First I am starting with smaller portions and healthier foods. By healthier foods, I'm referring to more fish, more chicken and less butter involved in my cooking. Eventually I know I will need to prepare my own meals separate from my family's meals because they love all of the foods that are not good for me. I'm taking baby steps here.
2. Post more videos. I know that this has been one of my goals for the year 2016 as a whole, and I haven't followed through. But I want to post at least 3 new videos this month. I was able to crank out one video last month about covering your eyebrows, but I want to post more this month. I have several draft articles that could use a video, so that will be where I start.
3. Dress to Impress. At my job, seldom is the requirement to look professional. While on a few occasions we have all been told to do so (a visit from a client), but on the norm, as long as you don't look raggedy, no one cares. Sometimes I dress up, but more often than not, I wear comfortable clothes. I want to dress up more at work, even if its not required, even if I want to be bummy, I plan on 'dressing for success' more at work. Today starts that new trend, and I am dressed to impress.
4. Create a variety of posts. While I changed the layout and theme of my blog from comic/nerd/cosplay to open to other topics, I know that I do post mostly those same subjects. I intend on including more variety in my article lineup. I especially want to include more outfit posts, and more tutorials (crafting, or maybe a recipe or two).
I think that I've got a solid four goals for this month, and I intend on utilizing this month as a growing and building month. I've spent too much time not focusing on what I should both personally and professionally (work and my blog) and I need to kick my drive in to improve both. Do you have any goals for this month? What are you working on throughout the month of August?
lotsa love to ya!
