Okay so we’re in August already- how has this happened?! I swear it was January like two minutes ago!
Time never used to go this quickly when I was a kid…or maybe it did and it was just that I didn’t mind it going quickly. I basically used to wish my life away so I could finish school and get out of such a toxic environment.
So anyway onto goals. I didn’t really manage tohit any my July Goals, my eating is still not back to what it should be and even though I’ve been working out, I’ve still not lost any weight or toned up.
I finished uni with a merit rather than a distinction but considering how it’s worked out I never could have achieved this goal anyway. I did get a distinction on my final major project though so that’s good enough of me!
So my goals for this month are…
01. Start swimming. I actually can’t swim properly, I can do a sort of doggy paddle and breaststroke mix but that’s it. My parents couldn’t afford to get me lessons as a kid so the first time I went swimming properly was at 11 when we had to go with school. Being one of the few people that had to wear armbands was seriously embarrassing and did nothing for the bullying. So I’ve decided that I’m going to teach myself to swim properly and it’s a great way to exercise!

02. Enjoy London. I’m going down to London with Abby for a long weekend at the end of the month and I’ve been looking forward to it for nearly a year now! My anxiety has been getting worse these last few months so I’m hoping it’s not going to ruin the trip by freaking out in the middle of London or something like that. We’re going to do the Warner Bros Harry Potter tour and I can’t wait!! I’ve wanted to do this ever since I first heard of it and now I’m finally going to be going! Prepare yourself for lots of pictures over on Instagram and I’m even considering vlogging the whole trip. Don’t hold me to that one as I don’t know if I have the guts to do that just yet.
03. Keep up with my skincare regime. I’ve been using the Aloe Vera range from The Body Shop and I’m loving how smooth it is making my skin! I’ve used their stuff for a while but only infrequently so this month I decided I’m going to use them daily. I picked up a kit on Saturday so I’ve got all new products and no excuse to not do it!
04. Stop stressing about my future! Now I’m the girl who always has a plan. For everything. So being without a plan for my future is freaking me the F out! But I’m getting sick of worrying over everything, it’s starting to make me ill so my goal for this month is to just let things be. That doesn’t mean I’m going to stop looking for a job or considering my options for uni, just that I’m going to stop being so obsessive over it and actually live in the moment. Thank goodness for mindfulness!
So those are my goals for this month! What are yours?
