Long time no blog y’all! Since I am the worlds worst blogger and haven’t blogged since my last goals post. Might as well see how I did on those goals and plan out the next ones for September!
Linking up for TOLT!
Pay off the credit card bill
I was able to pay off my last month’s balance on my card, but not this coming months. So I have not paid off the card fully but I have made sure that I haven’t accumulated any interest on the card.
Do 2 assisted pulls @ 20lbs
I was so close to being able to accomplish this goal! I tried last week and I wasn’t able to do the pull ups with anywhere near good form. I had to use my legs to help some because my arms were not strong enough. So I am going to move this goal to september and keep trying for it!
Stay on track with my macros/meal 80% of the time
I would like to say that this goal was a success. I tried to really stick to my macros or calories on most days. The days that I didn’t necessarily hit my macros, I tried to stay under my calories goal.
Invest time in learning Angular2
I think that as my work picked up this month this goal kind of came naturally.
Plan Labor Day visit to Rochester
Done and done. I booked my flight and planned all the things we are going to do while I am visiting this weekend. I am so excited to have a fun weekend.
Find a full size mirror for the apartment
I have the best big sister ever. Within like two days of me publishing my August Goals post, talking about wanting to buy a mirror, I had a mirror show up on my doorstep. She sent it as a gift. Seriously, how sweet is she!
Write/Publish 4 blog posts
Well this one did not go very well. I had a lot of intention to publish every week, but that didn’t happen at all. I have written out a few blog post ideas and a few draft but never sat myself and actually wrote and edited some of them.
Financial: Pay off all credit card balance
This month I want to focus on seeing the credit card balance at 0. If all things going according to budget, I should be able to achieve this goal. Hopefully the labor day sales don’t get in the way.
Get into a routine,
Pull Ups @ 20lbs, Squat @ 135lbs, Military Press @ 55lbs
I want to start getting into a routine where everyday after work I head straight to the gym. I find that once I get home and pet Nala and sit down, I don’t want to get up and go to the gym. This starts with me making sure to pack a pre-workout snack and my gym clothes.
I figured that its easier to reach workout goals when I put them in numbers, so this month I really want to focus on getting my strength up and hitting higher numbers on my exercises.
Life: Write in Journal Everyday
At the beginning of the month I bought a journal and I love how pretty it is. I told myself I was going to write in it everyday, but I have not. I’m hoping this month I will be able to stick to this goal.
Food: Try one new recipe
I have been struggling to eat a variety of protein packed foods lately. So this month I want to try at least one new recipe to start expanding my horizons.
Blog/IG: Blog 4 times, Post everyday this month on IG
I will get better at this blogging thing eventually, right? Well I’m really going to try hard to blog at least once a week (4x month) as well as posting to instagram more. I’m going to really challenge myself to post once a day on IG and see what happens.
Its late, I’m tired so quick send off. Have a good Thursday y’all! Lets kick butt this month!
