August Goals | 2017

Happy August! I hope everyone had a great month of July. Last month I turned twenty-two, had my first visit to Cape Cod and had the most relaxing spa day ever. Seriously, if you guys are in the Orlando/Disney World area, go to the Four Seasons spa! It was an absolutely amazing way to spend my birthday and I left feeling so relaxed and pampered. I’m sad to see July go by, but as always excited to see what August entails. I am still actively searching for a job, so I’m excited to see what the month of August brings with that. Fingers crossed for good news!

As always, here are my goals for the month of August:

+ Read (at least) two books

This month I only managed to read one book. As you may know from my blog post on my current reading list, I have several books lined up. I actually want to start the Harry Potter series next! Kayla has been reading it herself and she actually showed a trick to keep her on track to read one a week, which has definitely inspired me to do so. I don’t know about you guys, but I am a very, very slow reader, so I’ll have to report back on Twitter (shameless self-promo)!

+ Stay on my blog schedule

I have seriously struggled with blogging recently. But I will say that I have gotten a huge wave of inspiration and really want to maintain my schedule for posting on Monday, Wednesday and Friday this month. I am actually going to use the monthly spread in my planner to go in and schedule posts (at least) a week in advance so I don’t sit at my computer the night before pondering what to write about.

+ Drink more water

I used to be really good about drinking water. But recently it’s been seriously slacking. I want to try to get back to drinking three or four of my large swell bottle a day! I know this may be a crazy goal, but I’m determined to have one when I wake up, two throughout the day and one before I go to bed. My skin hasn’t been the best recently and I’ve started to convince myself that it could be because my water intake has been relatively low.

What are your goals for the month of August? I’d love to hear them!

    Staying on my blog schedule has been a struggle lately for me! I hope you stay on track! Also, I hope you enjoy the Harry Potter series – they were my favorite growing up!

      Thank you!! I only made it through the third book when I was little for some reason… now I’m determined to read them! 🙂

    I also want to stay on my blog schedule and read more this month! I read a lot every month but July wasn’t a good month for me – I only read 2 books, and I usually read upwards of 10. Trying to ease back into it in August!

    How do you encourage yourself to drink more water? I think that’s impacting my skin, too!!

      Wow, 10! That’s awesome. When it comes to drinking more water, I try to stay away from drinking anything else. Besides coffee, I only drink water. I make sure to fill up my water bottle first thing in the morning and last thing at night! I think that sticking to just drinking water really helps so I’m not tempted to reach for anything else!

    I’m usually good about drinking a lot of water, too, but lately I just haven’t been feeling it so I’ve been struggling to drink enough, too. We can do this together! 🙂
