Let's review July and see how we did, shall we!
1// EAT MORE REGULAR MEALS
✔️ Although I may have not cooked all of the meals myself I definitely ate more regularly. I even went to the grocery store a couple of time *gasp*
✔️ I started reading a book with my friend. We each read a chapter or two and then call each other and talk about it. We've slacked a little, but it has definitely helped to have accountability.
3// RE-WATCH SOME OF MY FAVORITE MOVIES
✔️ While packing for New York I watched The Sound of Music. Such a great classic. I've also learned recently that I can fall asleep while watching a movie but I can't fall asleep while watching a tv show. I think I'm afraid to miss something in the show, whereas the movie I have probably watched already.
4// SALAD IS YOUR FRIEND, SALAD IS YOUR FRIEND
And this is where the checkmarks stop...I still hate salad. I ate it some, but not as much as I should.
5// PLAN FOR NEXT MONTH’S VACATION
✔️ I went to NYC with some of my friends, details soon. I'm also excited to do something this month for my birthday and spend time with family.
6// SAY YES TO MORE THINGS
✔️ My mantra has been "If you don't like it you can always go home." What a great reminder is that. I forget that too often. I think that if I go somewhere I'm stuck. No I'm not, I'm an adult with a car, I can just go home. The best thing about this strategy is that it puts you in the mindset to say yes when people ask you to do something. Once you get there you realize how much fun you're having. I haven't gone home early once!
7// ONLY BUY ONE CANDLE
1/2 ✔️ I bought a pair of shoes instead. I love them!
8// TAKE THE PICTURE SHOOT THE VIDEO
1/2 ✔️ I did take more pictures this month but I also didn't use my new camera to do it. Phone cameras are so advanced now. I also didn't want to look like a tourist pulling out my camera at every tall building. I stayed in the moment more, that was also nice.
9// MAKE SOMEONE SMILE EVERY DAY
✔️ I bought coffee a couple times for the people I work with. I want to do more random acts for people I don't know this month.
10// GO ON ONE RANDOM TRIP OR DO ONE RANDOM THING
✔️ I've always wanted to go to a rooftop bar, now I can say that I have. It was very fun and very windy. Pictured above, so pretty!
Those are the results. How did your month go?
