Hey ho, September’s here and so is another #MonthlyGold Linkup.
Let’s see how I did with my goals for August. All in all the whole month was about recharging even though there was a lot to do. August was about a different mindset and hitting the breaks in a way. About starting to work with a new approach. It was more structured, I got back to my routines and overall felt very happy. I spent half of the month in Dubai and the rays of sunshine did not hurt one bit. 🙂
PLAN OUT MY DAYS
This wasn’t a 100 % success, but I got close! I wrote a to do-list for each week, and for each day as well before I got to work that day. It worked and I am well up to speed with everything.
This was mostly a success. I set the goals for myself a little too high first, but managed to work out 4 to 5 days a week. In Dubai we also did evening walks most nights in addition to going to the gym. Feeling great!
TRY A JUICE AND VEGGIE DETOX
This didn’t happen since my month ended up again being a little bit too over-indulgent towards the end. Blah!
START USING A BLOG PLANNER
Definitely a success with this one. I have planned out my posts already more than a month ahead. It’s so easy keeping up with ideas, posts I need to write and that my content will be better balanced. Love getting organized!
Here’s what I’ve planned for September.
KEEP EXERCISING REGULARLY
After neglecting exercise in the spring, I especially need to bump up the cardio. I’m not a great swimmer but manage not to sink, so I’ve been thinking of taking swimming to my routine more actively. In Dubai most apartment buildings have a pool, so there’s definitely a great opportunity for this.
READ TWO BOOKS
One for fun and one to learn something new. I’ve read two great books this week – more like binge-read – and I’ll write more about them later. Management books and light fiction are my two favorite kinds of literature, but I’m thinking of reading more of the classics. We’ll see what it will end up being!
WATCH GILMORE GIRLS
A must every fall! Have to get ready for the new episodes in November 🙂
PUBLISH MY FIRST VLOG OR VIDEO
Have been practicing video editing and trying to gather my courage for this. I have a huge amount of respect for the vloggers and all-round YouTubers out there for making these amazing-looking videos with great content. Not an easy job, let me tell you!
What kind of plans do you have for September?
