August 2017 Goals Update

So last month, I only completed 4.5/10 goals, and I’m really hoping to beat it. Even 5/10 would be nice!

Also, I always write these posts and then forget to check back on them and try to remind myself to complete them. I’m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but I think I’m going to force myself to check up on my set goals for September.


  • I wanted to be able to start going to work again this month. Long story short… It didn’t happen. 0 points.
  • I DID sort my car out! Even though Little Mo (that’s what my car is called) failed her MOT, I did managed to sort everything out and fix her up. If you read my August Goals post, you’ll realise how upset I was about replacing my broken number plate. RIP broken number plate. I’ll never forget you. Also, nothing has jumped out on me yet, so I’m thinking that the stag hair scared all the wildlife off for the long run. 1 point.
  • I actually went to go buy the paint for my room, but I wasn’t feeling well so I didn’t managed to go. I’m giving myself .5 of a point since I went to do it. Is that cheating? .5 point.
  • I BROUGHT NEW CLOTHES AND BRAS! Finally, I now have things to wear that don’t hang off of me. Also, if you’re a size 6-8, it seems that you will never be able to find anything in your size. I could find sizes 4 and then 10+. Wheres all the 6-8 clothes at?! 1 point.

Completed: 2.5/4



  • I finally think I’ve found a routine that works for my skin. It’s looking quite good recently, and only tends to flare up if I don’t drink enough or I’m not well. 1 point.
  • My bum is slowly starting to come back. I’m definitely not twerk worthy yet, but it’s better than it was. 1 point.
  • Mega happy about this one. I’ve started to ease off taking so many tablets! I’ve had to up a few, but I’m now hardly taking painkillers which is a mega bonus. 1 point.

Completed: 3/3



  • I’m still being a little bit of a bitch with blogging. I’m still managing to post everyday, but I’ve been a bit AWOL from the reader section. Sad face. 0 points.
  • Even though my stats didn’t double like I was hoping (It was a long shot), I still am super happy with them. 0 points.
  • Pfft. What blogging schedule?! I don’t even think I lasted a day with sticking to it. Oops. 0 points.

Completed: 0/3

Overall: 5.5/10

I did better than last month! Finally! Obviously I’d love to be able to say that I completed them all, but slow baby steps is better than none!

How many goals did you complete in August?

    Congrats on keeping your goals, some progress is better than no progress!! 😊

      Thank you so much! Definitely agree! I try not to beat myself up about not completing them all, as like you said, some is better than none!

    Good work!!! I had quite successful month – I got two projects done at work which I’m proud of – I have a third one, but that’s just not going to happen until next week. It’s due tomorrow, but because of some problems which are not my fault (people not sending their documents to me in time), I just can’t do it. I feel bad, and colleagues will most likely think I’m lazy or incompetent, but well, there’s nothing more I can do about it.

    • 31st August 2017 / 5:18 pm

      Well done for completing the two projects! And it’s a pain in the ass when you’re having to wait on other people, but fingers crossed that they’ll do it soon!

    I would say that was a successful month Brooke, remember what you’ve been through and you still keep pushing on. Goals are healthy too. I get where you are coming from in regards to the reader section…I see emails come in and go ‘oooh must read that’ then I remember that Rory is standing looking at me and wants me to read her Elmer, Peter Pan or our Disney Book hahaha…then inevitably forget to read.
    It’s hard work being a blogger huh? Xxx

      Thank you! And it definitely is hard work! I’m the exact the same, but I get distracted by everything 😂 xxx

    New bras for the win!! I hope you’re feeling better and able to go back to work soon xo

    • 31st August 2017 / 5:19 pm

      Thank you so much sweet! Nothing better than getting new bras haha! xx

    Good job on completing that many of the goals! Especially the fact you completed all 3 of your health goals! I don’t think it’s cheating at all that you gave yourself half a point for the fact you were going to buy paint. Also, I find the opposite problem when I’m looking for clothes. I’m a size 2-4 and I can usually find lots of 6-8 and not much in my actual size!

    • 31st August 2017 / 10:24 pm

      Thank you so much!! I spoke to my other friends about it (who are different sizes), and they said that they can never find clothes in their size, but usually in all the other sizes! Swear its always when you really like something, they won’t fit!

    Awh I love this style of post!! X

  9. 1st September 2017 / 2:47 pm

    I gotta say, I feel that not being able to find size 6s in any store holy cow!! I can’t ever find them!! Also, good work on your goals! Proud of you!❤

      It’s a nightmare isn’t it?! And thank you so much! It means a lot!! 😻
