August goals

august

Find a new job. Hopefully one where I can accommodate my injuries, and one where I actually feel comfortable working at. I have had a lot of bad work experiences through the years so I feel like it should be my time soon to have a job that I enjoy. I also hate being unemployed, having nothing really useful to do, it’s slowly but surely driving me crazy.

Finish reading what is on my ‘currently reading’ list on Goodreads. I have five books there now that I need to finish, it’s a bad habit of mine to just start reading a lot of books and never finishing them. Here’s my current list:

  • Hannibal by Mirko Jelusich
  • The Calling by David Gaider
  • Daughter of the Drow by Elaine Cunningham
  • Stars above by Marissa Meyer
  • American Gods by Neil Gaiman

Make more health-conscious choices. I need to stop saying yes to soda, need to stop buying snacks. Need to stop buying candy. I need to drink more water, more tea and less sugary stuff. I need to make more food from scratch instead of settling for processed or ready made meals.

Work out at least every other day. I’ve been good at working out but sometimes I feel like I’m too tired, even though I know I should push myself through it. I’ve at least been working out around 3 times a week, but it needs to be more. With every other day it would be about 4 times a week, which is better than just three.

Spend as little as possible to preserve what money I have in my savings account. Now that I’m unemployed and don’t have a steady income, I really need to save as much as I can to avoid running out of money. It is difficult when you have bills to pay and food to buy, and you can’t make any unnecessary purchases. There’s so much that I want to buy that I cant, and it sucks.

What are your goals for August?

    Good goals hun. I really hope you find a job that suits you. It’s hard to find a job you love, I’ve had some jobs I detested! I need to read more books, execise more, save money and eat less snacks and be healthier. So I can relate to a lot of your goals xx

    I finally quit drinking soda after a long struggle, my suggestion is to drink la croix whenever you feel the urge to have a soda, it’s carbonated and has a little fruit taste so it definitely satisfies but it’s healthy!! πŸ™‚

    Good luck on finding a job & completing your other goals!
    I need to catch up on reading b/c I have 3 books that I’m in the middle of. I also need to make healthier lunches b/c I’ve been eating a lot of frozen foods since it’s so easy to heat up.

        This week I’ve been eating salads, wraps, and leftovers from dinner for lunch so I’ve successfully avoided frozen foods 😊 now to just stick w/ it!
        Also on Sunday I’m going to Legoland & Lalandia for a week & I’m so excited πŸ˜„
