Monthly Goals // August 2020

Goodbye July! Hello August!

Where on earth is 2020 going!? I cannot believe it’s August already, we’re over half way through the year and I don’t even feel like I’ve done very much! I suppose that’s actually true with this whole pandemic thing, a lot of things have been cancelled or put on hold so I haven’t actually done that much. I’ve tried my hardest to keep myself occupied with other things, I’m definitely not one to sit around and do nothing.

Now it’s the beginning of August, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of July, then create new Goals for August. I love setting new Goals as it gets you excited for the upcoming month! Also it is good to have something to look forward to and achieve in the month. If you want to see what I got up to in July, I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // July 2020 here.

It’s great to review and reflect each month, sometimes you even forget what you’ve done. I love sharing these Monthly Goals with you. They definitely help me to stay on top of my Goals and to always think about them. If you’re trying to achieve Yearly Goals, I would definitely recommend breaking them down into Monthly Goals, that way they’re more manageable and you remember them!

Before I set myself some new Goals for August, let’s reflect on my July Goals!

Keep active

Tick and tick! This month, I continued to be strong with my fitness game. And finally gyms have opened! I was going to go back to The Gym Group but on the weekend they do not open until 9am, this is too late because normally I’m in the gym from 8am! I was looking to cancel my membership altogether but I needed the routine so I’ve joined a different gym. Fingers crossed I can get back into a good routine.

Increase page views from June

Unfortunately, I was way off with this one! I had a bad month for blogging and there were a couple of weeks with no new posts so I only managed 177 views in July. I’m definitely going to bounce back with this one though! Everything crossed for August and I’ve got some amazing posts lined up for you. I’m really excited to share these with you! Let’s hope for a good August.

Get back into the blogging game

Completed! I am back and I’m excited to be here. I have missed blogging but I wasn’t in the mind frame to continue blogging. It’s definitely good to be back now though, I suppose I have nothing else to do on my weekends at the moment. If I can write as many posts as possible now, if and when things do return to normal, at least I am still consistent.

Post at least 25 times to Instagram

Tick and tick! I only just completed this one in July, as I posted exactly 25 times to Instagram. I hope you have been enjoying these posts! Oh also, it’s great to share with you F1 content, be on the look out for more as well as some British Touring Car content. I’m very pleased with this one, especially as I haven’t actually been doing that much this month! If there’s anything you want to see, let me know in the comments.

Complete July Challenge

OK I was close with this one but not close enough. The July Challenge was 200,000 steps and I completed 157,734 steps which isn’t too bad if I say so myself. This is an increase of 5,456 steps so I’m moving in the correct direction! I think now I’m working from the office instead of home, I’m hopefully going to walk more steps. I’ve signed up for the August challenge which is again 200,000 steps so let’s see what this month brings!

Let’s get to my August Goals!

  • Keep active
  • Gym x2 per week
  • Increase page views from June
  • Post at least 25 times to Instagram
  • Complete August Challenge on Samsung Health
  • Post at least twice a week on An Ocean Glimmer

There we go six Goals for August! They’re similar to the July Goals but that’s because I only set them near the end of July and to be honest, I haven’t achieved my big Goals. Now we’ve got a whole month to achieve these Goals, I’m feeling good about it! Stay tuned to see how I get on with them. Will I achieve them all in August? Find out when I reflect on my August Goals in my Monthly Goals // September 2020.

Thank-you for reading. What is the one thing you would love to
achieve this month? Let me know in the comment!
