Since it’s October tomorrow, it’s time for my monthly bucket list! In this post I always set targets for the month ahead, and look at how I did on the previous month’s targets. So here goes…
Last month I wanted to:
Increase my stats and followers
When I wrote my last bucket list there had been 42950 site views on my blog, as of today there have now been 49832. I’m edging ever closer to my first 50,000 views, which I find amazing.
My Twitter was at 6355 followers and now I have 7468
My Facebook page was at 808 likes, and now has 932, this one is definitely hard work!
Instagram was 2690 now 3211
Pinterest was 3271 and now is at 3497 I kind of forgot to work on this one this month
Tots 100 – I am currently number 170 out of over 8000 blogs, so that’s four months of being in the top 200
I’ve managed this one, I’ve lost 3lbs in the last month. Slow and steady and all that I suppose. Things are definitely going in the right direction though, and my fitness after over a years worth of back and hip issues has improved a lot. I may even be back to running by the end of the year at this rate.
Reorganise our cupboards and drawers
I’m about a third of the way through this, but still working on it. It’s recycling on Friday so I’ll be a busy bunny tomorrow having a good sort out of the rest.
Give Si a good birthday
Si had a lovely birthday in man’s terms. In other words I offered to take him out for a meal or him have the day off from work for a day out, but he preferred me to cook him a special meal. He loved his presents though (phew – men are so hard to buy for!) and he chose gammon with a few extras for his meal.
To NOT book any more holidays
Like I have already mentioned in my previous bucket list, we’re off on our fourth mini holiday of the year at the end of this month, but I am pleased to confirm we’ve resisted booking any more ha.
Clear out the boys’ old toys
This one will have to carry over, as their wardrobes and under-bed boxes still need a big clean up. We’ve just instigated a new points system for pocket money though, where they have to earn their pocket money so I’m sure I can bribe them to help with a few points.
I’m glad I’ve achieved some of my goals, although some will definitely need to be continued this month. This month my goals are :
Increase my followers and stats
Lose at least another 3lbs (hopefully more)
Have a tidy house even if it only lasts a day
Pitch for work instead of being lazy and waiting for the emails to arrive
Walk for an hour a day on the treadmill or outside (I’ve been doing this for a week so far and feeling the good effects)
Have a picnic tea at the beach with the boys before the sun disappears again
Reach 1000 Facebook Likes (I know I put followers above, but I want this one especially to work)
Do you like to plan ahead and if so what are your aims this month?
