Happy Monday and start of a new month! I'm more chipper today than I've been in awhile because...
...JOSH GOT A JOB! He starts his first day TODAY. It's been a long, tough road, but he's been such a trooper and is proof that hard work pays off. I'm so so proud of him and can't wait to see where this next chapter leads us. We joked this weekend that essentially, him getting this job is the start of the rest of our lives. Things are starting to fall into place and it's all very exciting!
Also, since it's the start of a new month (how is it already June), I've made some goals (blogging, health, money).
Blogging:Increase Instagram followers. I love sharing my day to day life with all of my readers, so if you don't already, follow me on Instagram!
Overcome writer's block. Lately, I haven't been feeling all that inspired. I've been trying to slow down and really be present on the weekends instead of trying to come up with the next best thing to blog about. And that leaves me to not having anything to write about Monday-Friday. Planning in advance/taking the time to sit down and really think about what I want to write about should help with this. (P.S. This post was not planned #fail)
Eat clean-er. Ever since I watched Fed Up, I'm literally fed up. I've been putting nothing but junk in my body (spoonfuls of icing--I'm looking at you) and hoping that I'll lose weight. Isn't that the definition of insanity? By implementing a little bit of the Whole30 and eliminating MOST forms of sugar (hey, I'm not perfect) I hope to see a change in how I feel.
I plan to stay away from most dairy, all added sugars, and try to incorporate more fruits and vegetables. I can't promise I'll stay away from all carbs, but I will be checking their sugar content--according to Fed Up, the recommended amount of sugar is about 6-9g and the average person eats that (and more) for breakfast.
Stick to the budget and save money. I'm beginning to sound like a broken record, even to myself. This is THE HARDEST thing for me to do and keep up with. I made a budget today and have planned out all of the expenses I think I'll have--even my friend's Bachelorette Party. This month, I will stick to the budget and SAVE the amount I've planned to. If it's not in the budget, I can't/won't buy it.
Have you made any goals for this week/month?
