May Look Back and June Goals.

A look back at May's goals:

Save some moolah
"I may or may not have spent an unnecessarily large amount of money last month. This month, I'm going to cut out all online shopping completely and spend only on the essentials, only spending just that little bit extra on dates/dinners with Jesse."
Cross: I completely, utterly, 100% did not save my moolah. I bought clothes, I bought makeup, I bought movie tickets, I bought unnecessary food. Am I mad? Not really. Actually, not at all.

Complete the "Marketing" unit before the workshop
"I have one (long, daunting) assessment left in the Marketing unit before it's done with forever. Although I haven't even started, I hope to have in completed and submitted before I attend the next workshop on the 11th (one week, eek!)."
Tick: I'm quite proud of this achievement seeming as it's probably the hardest I've pushed myself to study in.. ever. I actually have managed to complete 2 and a half units since said workshop. Go, Christie.

Loose 1kg
"My weight has plateaued for the past 3 or so months (most definitely due to my crappy eating habits), and it's really draining all my motivation and drive. I know that if I can just loose 1kg this month, I'll gain back that drive."
Cross: I didn't gain weight? As a matter of fact, I lost 300g. Nailed it.

Schedule dental appointment
"Christie got a taste of what a root canal is like a few weeks back (FUN TIMES FOR ME), and they recommended that round two should be done in about two or so months. As much as I'd like to never return to that torture chair, I should book that appointment and get it over and done with."
Tick: I'm not even going to comment on this one that's how much I'm looking forward to it. -.-

Make time to see my friends
 "To say life has been hectic over the past couple of months would be a gross understatement. As a result, I've been a terrible friend and neglected those who mean most to me. I'd like to catch up with each of them in some way this month."
Tick: I managed to see literally every one of my friends over May, and have scheduled time to see most of the again real soon.

Goals for June:

"Spring" clean my whole wardrobe
Winter clean just doesn't have the same ring to it. My closet is literally overflowing. Literally. As in, my doors and drawers have recently reached a capacity in which they no longer close (100% due to the aforementioned failure to curb my spending). Let's just say that I'm a hoarder when it comes to clothing, but I'm determined to get those doors closed this month. The good Sammies are going to love me.

"Spring" clean my make-up stash
While I'm at it.. I'm usually annoyingly meticulous in the neatness of my make-up display, but due to my morning instagram habit causing me to run late every damn day (I will never regret my morning instagram fix), my once beautiful shelving has become a horrible mess that I am ashamed of. Time to trim the fat (possibly the worse saying ever) and re-organise my stash.

Build vs. buy - Make a final decision
Yup! Jesse and I are planning to take the next step and move out together. How exciting! If all goes to plan, we should be out and fending for ourselves either late this year or early 2017. I'm aware that this probably isn't the best "announcement". I really do love reading such posts, but this process really is stressful enough. Let's simplify things as much as we can, yeah? We've been weighing up the pros and cons of building vs. buying and by the end of this month, I'd really like to come to a decision about which one is the best route for us to take (We're leaning slightly more towards building at this stage. Advice is much appreciated. Plz halp).

Complete every single workout
I've gotten in to the habit of rushing my gym sessions and skipping parts of my routine over the past few months. I'm lazy, I'm tired, I'm hungry, I want to get home so I can have more Jesse time, excuse E, excuse F.. This month (and all other months), I'm not going to leave the gym until I have 100% finished my workout. No skipping bits or cutting pieces short.


  1. Great Goals!

  2. I need to complete every single work out too and I need to get rid of a lot of my old clothes I don't really use.

  3. Great post! Good luck on your June goals!!
    Kisses and hugs from www.trangscorner.com {a lifestyle, fashion, beauty, and food blog}

  4. I need to get back to working out period. Working out while traveling is so hard, but I'm starting Kayla's Bikini Body Guid (haha help me).

  5. Sounds like it'll be a good month for organizing and cleaning out the old. I always feel great after I've reorganized part of my home, haha!

  6. Great idea. I need to make a goals sheet. I feel like I have so many things going on all the time. I'm gonna do this today.

  7. I just did my very first goal post today after almost 2 years of blogging..I always think people don't want to hear my goals..but they actually do and it is a great way to keep yourself accountable! Great goals and I love the one about buying or building...building is a lot of work but Have heard it is so worth it in the end..congrats on all you've accomplished!

  8. The two things I need to do most on this list aha. Good luck! x

  9. Oh girl, I hear you.
    Good luck with Kayla's workouts - they look freakin' intense. D: Haha. xx

  10. I haven't done it in so long, but I definitely know that feeling. :) x

  11. Definitely do! Writing my goals out really motivates me to get shit done. Otherwise I doubt I'd ever achieve anything aha. x

  12. Aw good on you. :) It's a great way to motivate you to get shit done.
    I could just write them down rather than posting them on the blog, but I feel making them public adds that extra bit of motivation. I dunno, I guess that if I know that even one person sees it, I'd be... embarrassed in a way that I didn't achieve anything?
    I dunno, just my weird way of thinking but it works aha!
    Good luck with your goals! x

    Great Goals! How are you going with them?

  14. All great goals for this month and last month! I want to lose at least 5 lbs by next month. I am trying really hard. Saving money is also on my list of goals to accomplish. I too sometimes skip some parts of my work outs. Whoops! You got these goals this month girl!

  15. I have achieved exactly 0% of my goals so far ahaha. x

  16. Thanks, girl!
    Best of luck losing those 5 lbs! You can do it, just stop skipping parts of workouts. :P x


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment! I love hearing from you all!
