Nooooooooooo! I don’t want to be looking back at May already. I didn’t do anything! Not a single bloody thing! Unless you count eating, drinking and doing the washing. Anyway….
Welcome to my next ‘Looking back’ post! If you missed the first Looking Back, the first post of each month will be a monthly round-up of the month before. That’s a lot of month in that paragraph!
What Did I Get Up To?
As you can tell, I am extremely happy to be looking back at May already!
And that’s because I did nothing. I didn’t achieve a damn thing. I don’t know what has happened to me recently but all motivation has just left me. Where has it gone? If found, please send back to me, I’d be ever so grateful!
I think it might actually have something to do with the warmer weather. I both love and hate the hot weather. I love it because everything just feels better in the sun. I get to see my garden blossom and flower and I can get all my washing done.
But I also hate it too because I don’t like being hot! I hate feeling sweaty, I don’t like the sun getting in my eyes, I hate the feel of sun lotion on my skin, I just don’t like it. I’ve kind of resigned myself to the fact that I will be pale forevermore! 🤣
So although my motivation has left me I actually uploaded a lot of posts last month and had the best month I’ve ever had for views!
Focus on You – I am due to upload my last Focus on You post this month so if you would like to be involved please do send me email and I’ll get back to you.
It has been such an eye opening experience for me talking to all these amazing women and share their stories on my blog. I’m not ready for this series to end yet so do get in touch ❤️
If you’ve not heard of Focus on You before you can read about it in this post.
I’m not too sure what’s changed recently but my mental health hasn’t been great. Some of my old thoughts are creeping back in. I normally struggle at night, when I’ve gone to bed – probably because there it nothing to distract me. As a result I’m waiting to go to bed until I’m super tired, which means I’m not going to bed until much later. And as we all know, lack of sleep is detrimental to your mental health. It’s a bit of vicious circle!
Well, as it’s only been a week since I uploaded the post My Weight not an awful lot has changed. I am trying to be more mindful of what I eat. I’m asking myself if I’m actually hungry or am I just bored before I go to the cupboard or fridge. I’ve also been drinking more water. So, I’m quite happy with the start I’ve made.
Did I Achieve My Goals?
These were my goals from Aprils post:
Look After MyselfNOPE Actually keep up to date with my damn blogging schedule!NOPE Finish mWhats the point? NOPE!
What actually is the point of me setting goals each month if I don’t actually stick to them?!
My Goals For June
- Lose 2lbs – I’m starting small! I’m aiming for half a pound a week to begin with.
- Start reading again – I love reading but I just don’t do it anymore. Probably because I’m too busy looking at my phone. As an Amazon Prime member I’m entitled to a selection of kindle books for free each month so I’m going to start reading them. On my phone 😐
- Work on my blog photography – Where I’ve started writing about beauty products, this means I need to start taking my own blog photos! I don’t think I’ve done too badly so far, but I feel like I could learn more!
And I think thats it for this month. Thanks for looking back at May with me!
