August Goals + Tiny Carrot Cake


Pinch punch it’s a new month! Isn’t the start of a new month the best? A great time to set some mini goals. Although mine started with a morning struggle, once I got going and inhaled some coffee and carrot cake (it was the tiniest slice hehe), I was much better. I’m still trying to figure out my new routine since E started his new job.

I’ve been working hard at Duolingo and currently on a 279 day streak in Spanish. Since I’ve not been able to go to language school, I’ve been studying at home everyday and making progress. The newest version on iOS now has podcasts and instead of messing on my phone I’m getting used to clicking on Duolingo instead, doing a quick 5 mins lesson here and there instead of wasting time on social media.

Other goals include working on my Fit By 40 Challenge. There are 3 months to go and I know I have to really step my game up.

Have you set any goals for the new month?

Right now I am purchasing my first Leuchtturm 1917 bullet journal that I mentioned this blog post about setting up a bullet journal and some brush pens! Eek! The Tombow brush pens wouldn’t ship here via Amazon so I had to order a different brand.

It’s forever Summer here… I need some rain. 🌧 Curling up in the cold weather, video games, a book and a comfy corner, not quite the same when it’s boiling hot. πŸ˜…
