Oh, May. May was such a wonderful month for me in so many ways, and such a terrible month in other ways. I am not looking forward to recapping my progress on the goals I set because it won’t be pretty. But! It’s a new month and I have a renewed attitude towards my goals. Let’s do this thing!
Recapping May goals…
Enjoy my cruise! PASS. I had a fabulous cruise and the best time with my mom. We travel so well together, and this cruise was a little more key than normal, but no less fun! I’m already looking forward to our next cruise.
Join another DietBet and continue losing weight. Pass-ish? I did join another DietBet, but haven’t lost weight this month. Womp, womp.
Find a therapist that accepts my health insurance. FAIL. I did not even think about this one!
Add at least $400 to my savings. FAIL. I wasn’t able to add any money to my savings account this month, due to other expenses that cropped up.
Go back to church. FAIL. Sundays tended to be busy days, where I seemed to have things going on (and I’m so lazy and that extra day to sleep in is so nice).
(Hi, my name is Stephany and I like to make excuses.)
In June, I want to…
Start my spending freeze, pay off my credit card, and bring my emergency savings to $700. I used my credit card a bit in May, with my cruise and then for buying new eyeglasses and contacts. So my spending freeze comes at the perfect time. I want to get my credit card paid off ($537), and I am hopeful I can add around $400 to my savings account, too. I will be doing biweekly updates on my spending freeze to give me further accountability to see this thing through.
Write a new “About Me” page for the blog, and put up “Hire Me”/”Contact Me” pages. I am really craving a new look for this blog, and I am going to spend the next few months doing some behind-the-scenes updates before launching a new design. There are so many things I need to do, and I want to start by freshening up my “About Me” page, and adding “Hire Me”/”Contact Me” pages, since I want to dive into some freelance work in the next few months.
Go back to church. Because I need to go to church. Church makes me happy. Setting Sunday morning alarms doesn’t make me happy, but church itself makes me happy.
Lose 5 lbs. This is doable. I can make this goal. I know it’s not ideal to set such an arbitrary goal, but I think I need this. I need to see myself succeed at this.
Make a dentist appointment. I’m slowly but steadily trying to make all those blasted doctor’s appointments that need to be made. Last month was my eye appointment, June will be the dentist.
What are your goals for June?
