Monthly Goals: July 2017

6 Jul

Hello lovelies! June passed so quickly didn’t it?! I feel like it was really only two weeks, the way it blasted by. My OH finished up spring term and is taking summer term off – we’re both looking forward to the break! Haven’t seen much of him these past two terms. I didn’t meet a lot of my goals in June because of my health but I’m excited that every month I’ve tried a few different recipes!

On to the goals!


(This is my rose bush in my front yard! It is blooming like crazy right now and I’m loving it!) 

Recap of Monthly Goals:

Finish writing new scene in ‘Amelia’ – nope. did get some brainstorming done on ‘Georgia’ story

Post Regularly – I’m getting a bit better!

Lose weight/get healthier – I’ve been able to keep my weight at least the same, if not losing any. I’ll share more of my health next week.

Read more books on Jewish living –  It’s not Jewish, but I’m reading When God Doesn’t Fix It by Laura Story

Write a letter to one person a month 


Try a new recipe – Once again, I have been trying recipes from Against All Grain, this time from her Meals Made Simple book – Peruvian Style Chicken, Meatloaf and Chocolate shake (with spinach not avocado). All three were yummy! I’m loving this new cookbook.

Watch/Read a documentary/biography – I started watching another Gordon Buchanan show – Snow Wolf Family and Me. Abby and I love watching it.


Recap of June Goals:

Start 21-day detox – no but I have been strict on my diet – limited starch, no processed sugar

Get my hair trimmed – Finally! I cut 6 inches off and it feels so good and healthy again

Finish Crochet projects

Go through 2 areas and declutter – not at all. This month was rough on me

Schedule landlord to clean up yard – no but I’m still hoping to. So maybe this month?

Vacation – YES. We had a wonderful time.


My new Japanese-style tub!

    Cutting out the refined sugar is such a good idea, but I can’t stick to it, so good for you. And yeah if your health isn’t good its super hard to start any diet or detox plan. Hopefully July will let you get it started. But glad to see you got to go on vacation hope it was fun.
