7 Things for 7 Days Catch-Up

Hey Guys,
Just over a month ago I posted this post about deciding to set myself goals in order to re motivate myself and improve my mental wellbeing.
So I thought I would share with you how I got on with the goals.
Relax – During the month I allocated myself to complete these goals I was on holiday for two weeks where I did nothing but relax and it was fantastic. However when I came I made a promise to myself that I would try and relax more at home. A happy Jessica equals a happy world J so this goal is still a work in progress.
Spend some quality time with Stuart – This was goal was fully managed and me and Stuart managed to spend lots of time together, this is going to be a running goal that is always going to be in the back of my mind.
Be more organised – This goal was forced upon me as I had to organise my bedroom as I have been getting a new double bed so I decided to sort out my whole room. And I definitely feel better for it, I now feel loads calmer when I walk in my room and there is not clutter everywhere!
Improve my skin care routine – This was another goal that I half completed, while I was on holiday I really looked after my skin. Making sure it was protected during the day and cleansed on a night. However since I have come back I have only managed to do it a couple of nights, but it is definitely improving!
Get to the gym – I am now in a regular routine of going to the gym at least once a week, a few more of my friends have joined the same gym as me so we are all motivating each other.
Eat better – My diet has definitely improved because I am now also attending the gym regularly. I mean there is no point in sweating it out at the gym and coming home and scoffing a huge Chinese is there? I still do have the odd takeaway but its the everything in moderation rule that works for me. If I have a Chinese than ill be really good the next day.
Read – Before my holidays I managed to read the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy, ooh err. I really enjoyed those books, to anyone who hasn’t read them I promise they are just about the filthy stuff, the love story and background of the two main characters is beautiful. Whilst on my holidays I managed to read The Charming Man by Marian Keyes and The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern, book great books by the way. I have also purchased the first in both the Twilight and Hunger Games books as well as Stephen King’s 11/22/63. I am actively going to try and find time to make sure I read these!

I don’t know if this is something that I will continue with every month, but it certainly got me out of the rut that I was stuck in. If I am ever feeling like that again it’s something I will use to pick myself up.
What do you think? Do you think this is a good idea? Have you tried it?

    1. Yeah, I really think so! Because its out there for everyone to see, so it makes you want do your best and it's a good way of making you really think about the things that matter the most to you and how you can improve them.
      I think even if you don't do them in your blog it's worth writing them down somewhere :) because I always find if I make lists or write things down that I tend to stick to them more, weird I know?!
