Goals

After last week, and after having a cold all weekend, this past weekend. There’s one thing that I really need to start doing.

Making goals.

Last week, I got so caught up in not healthy things, that I become stress sick. Which is a thing. You stress yourself out so much that you become sick, through seemingly nothing. As your immune system is down.

Now when I talk about goals, I don’t mean necessarily, making the bed every day. Although I do hear that’s a good one, because no matter what else, you achieve through the day. You’ve at least made your bed.

When I mean goals, I am talking/writing about things like:

  • Restricting my social media time to an hour a day. On days that I feel like going on.
  • Making a little bird house on the ground. Honestly, it’s cold here a lot now. I feed the birds since Travie’s been gone. Yesterday I noticed a few on them stayed under the verandah after they got caught out, in the rain.
  • Since I’m behind in my reading, I need to spend a couple of hours a day reading something.
  • Clean the stove top.
  • Rebook my flu/cold jab after getting the flu this weekend =/
  • Setting up a spreadsheet for budgeting.

October Goals.

Yes, I completely missed September. Once I had other Blogs written, I had forgotten about my Goals. I decided that I would change the timing of my goals to the beginning of the month. Starting from now…

  • I do want to get a Yoga Schedule going, I really do want to get my legs stronger again.
  • Start actually wrapping up the Christmas presents, so I know what I’m putting with what.
  • At the moment I’m trying to organise things for my shop, I am currently creating things for it.
  • I need to pass my current class. The only thing I have left to do is to make video tape practicals for it. It’ll be interesting to do!

August Goals – Too tick or not too tick

  • Christmas Present check time! – What I mean by this is, see what I already have gathered, write it down and check what else I need.

This is done! I have also though gotten a few more presents since. I don’t really have that much left to get honestly. Which is fantastic, especially since work has gotten slow recently.

  • Get the Lolsy’s Shop up and running.

It’s not up and running…Yet…But I’ve started to make and get things together for it. I want to work on it a little longer first. I can see though I may have not needed to make a entirely different website for it now though…But we’ll wait and see! I’m not getting rid of it yet.

  • Get a Yoga Schedule – Focus mainly on strengthen my sciatica.

I haven’t gotten around to making a Yoga schedule, but I have been doing more breathing exercises instead. Unfortunately I nearly had a panic attack and after talking to my therapist, I thought it was just better too learn how to do breathing. Which probably sounds weird in itself.

  • Make a budget. I don’t know how but somehow even though my anxiety has lessened and I’ve been able to start catching buses again. Somehow I spent more money than when I’d caught taxis? Makes no sense!

This is actually going well, because I have started to feel more comfortable taking buses again. That has saved me SO much! It shows, I’ve been able to get more Christmas presents as the money I’ve saved as allowed me too. So I’m hitting two birds with one stone really (what a terrible saying,lol).

So two and a half out of four, not to bad.

Hopefully I will actually do them this time!

July Goals

This month is very much about getting things that I’ve gotten together and actually start using and creating with them!

  • Get a Yoga Schedule – Focus mainly on strengthen my sciatica.
  • Make a budget. I don’t know how but somehow even though my anxiety has lessened and I’ve been able to start catching buses again. Somehow I spent more money than when I’d caught taxis? Makes no sense!
  • Create some healthy winter recipes.

CREATE!!!

June Goals…Tick or not to Tick?

  • Start making the candles.

I did, but oh my goodness. It’s been a little harder than I thought as well! I bought SO much of it as well. Without realising that I had bought so much of it.

  • Look into labels for candles.

I did do this, I think if I were to sell candles I have to put some warning labels at least on the bottoms of the candles. So I will have to get those.

  • Create something…That is something which I cannot tell you about yet, until it’s all set up…Watch this space for more…

This was done! It was my new (hopefully better organised) website. Which you can find here: Lolly’s Library – The Website

  • Go for my drivers licence…At least my “L’s”

I did this as well. The first time I got one of the give way questions wrong. I had the right answer to begin with as well! I was so frustrated with myself!

I DID IT!!!

  • Go through my pants again and get rid of ones that don’t fit and aren’t not suitable/warm enough for Winter.

I did this one too…But I also bought new pants…I hurt my leg a couple of years ago and put some weight on. Now I’ve been losing it a bit lately. Not only have I been wanting to get rid of pants, but I also have too because some are getting baggier on me now. I always keep at least a pair around whether I put on weight or not. Just in case I put on or lose weight again.

  • Go through my pants again and get rid of ones that don’t fit and aren’t not suitable/warm enough for Winter.

I find that the problem with Winter is that I don’t actually set up many goals for myself, because I am not a Winter person. My goals are mainly to stay inside for as long as humanely possibly to be honest. Which is why you’ll probably find a lot of my goals for the next couple of months, will be things I can do indoors most of the time.

May Goals…Too tick, or not too tick?

  • Try on jackets and coats, get rid of ones that I haven’t worn in either years or ever.

I have done this one. It’s amazing how big coats and jackets are! They are not like tshirts and tops where you can fit a few in one bag to get rid of. You can put one or two coats into a bag only. There were a couple I “fit into” just can’t close them up anymore. Which is so sad! Of course they are my favourite coats as well.

  • Look into making my own candles and getting my own quotes on jars. (I was initially inspired by this after thinking about putting Magical Monday on a candle jar for myself. Then I thought why not look more into this?)

I have actually found a couple of sites which look great! It’s been completely fascinating and I have been getting even more ideas!

https://candlemaking.com.au/collections/candle-making-kits

http://www.labelprintingco.com.au/candle-label-printing.html – There is a pop up conservation window, where they’ll ask if you want any help.

  • Try to create candles with certain fragrances as well…Try to research into what a “motivating” fragrance might be, for example.

This has been a bit harder just because you can’t really “smell” things over the computer. So when I’ve been going into stores, I’ve been trying to see if I can smell them. I actually found a few soaps and I liked their smells,lol. So I’ll have to see if I can create those smell…Watch this space for more!lol

  • Finish up writing the review for “Lord of Shadows”.

I did that too…And you can read it here.

  • Look into healthy Winter recipes.

There are a LOT of soup recipes for Winter. Soups and Stews…When I was little, I used to call Stews…Spew,lol…I have discovered lots of different lasagnes and yummy pies too! I can’t wait to make some of them! I might even post them on here…Don’t you feel lucky? =D

No joke, we went from 104 (F) weather (40 c) to Winter the very next day…Been a bit of a shock to the system.
