18 for 2018 June review

This is getting silly now. I’m sure I only posted my May review last week!

 

1 New blog followed per week – 4/4 (yearly total 25/25)

Done. This one is going so well 🙂

 

2 New stitches/techniques learned per month – 1/2 (10/12)

This month I had a go at Bavarian crochet. Like most things, it’s not as difficult as I thought it would be. I’m thinking of making a cushion cover with my little test sample.

 

3 Instagram posts per week – 6/12 (88/75)

I slipped this month, but I’m still ahead of my overall total so yay I suppose.

 

4 Exercise sessions per week – 23/16 (100/100)

Woo hooo I’ve caught up with my overall total!

I’m going out on my lunch break every day, and it feels really good to be getting back into moving regularly. At the moment I’m meeting my step goal at least six days every week, which hasn’t happened for nearly two years.

5 Blog posts written per week – 13/20 (105/125)

Below target, but still better than I thought. One thing 18 for 2018 has taught me is that I’m actually a lot more productive than I think I am in several areas.

 

6 Patterns written up – 1.5/6 (1.5/6)

No movement.

 

7 Areas in my flat sorted – 3.5/7 (3.5/7)

No more this month. I blame the sunshine :p

 

8 Minutes of writing per day

Still not every day, but I’m certainly working on it more often.

 

9 pm bed time – 7/30 (59/181)

Another improvement on last month, but obviously I still need to work on this more.

 

10% of wages saved – 10/10

Done.

 

12 Hand-written letters – 6/12

None this month, but I’m writing one at the moment.

 

13 New recipes tried – 7/13

Nothing here either. I’ve bookmarked a few to try, but didn’t actually get time to try them out.

 

14 Meet ups with friends – 14/14 COMPLETE!

We’re only halfway through the year and I’ve already met a goal! I can’t believe it, especially as it’s this goal. I’m really not as unsociable as I thought.

This month brought it home with a night at the pub after my choir’s summer concert, and a starlight swim on the coast, which was utterly wonderful.

The scenery was amazing, the weather was gorgeous so the temperature was just right, I battered my fear of heights into submission and jumped off the 3m diving board, and spent some lovely time with lovely friends.

15 Birthdays on time – 11/15

Ooh I’m getting close with this one. Three friends had birthdays this month and I managed to make them all.

 

16 Christmas cards made – 3/16

Just no. It’s too hot to be thinking about Christmas.

 

17 Birthday cards made – 7/17

Three birthdays, but only two cards made this month. I’m not sure how the third friend feels about birthday cards, as she’s a professional declutterer, so I made her some fairy cakes instead.

 

18 Items decluttered – 6/18

No time this month, I really must get on.

 

I don’t like the way I pretty much missed June. Honestly, it went so quickly we were at the 2nd before I even realised it was July. This month I’m going to set aside some regular time to focus on my goals, and hopefully being a bit more mindful will stop time whizzing past me before I can properly enjoy it.

How was your June? Did you meet any goals? Let me know in the comments!

  1. You are making great progress! Congratulations on making your step goal! I try to walk every day at lunch, but the heat has been such a deterrent lately. I really enjoy walking my pup before work. Every little bit helps!!

  2. I love the fact that you’ve already reached your socialising goal – are you going to set yourself a stretch-target (like they do on crowd funding sites)?
    It’s been a challenging month with all the heat for me, since what I really wanted to do was bottle lots of fruit and tomatoes. However, I managed it and started July by making two sorts of jam and some barbeque sauce from the remaining fruit.
    I’m impressed that you have managed to do your walking – as the hot weather has continued it has got busier and busier at the swimming pool (even at 7am) and I suspect it’s because it’s too hot for people to do other sorts of exercise, so all your steps are even more of an achievement.

    1. Hmm I never thought of that. It would stop me going down the path of ‘I’ve met my goal so now I can become a hermit’, which is always a risk with me. I’ll have a think about how far I can stretch.
      Home made barbecue sauce sounds lovely, what fruit do you use in it? The stuff in the shops is usually too vinegary for my liking so it would be good to give it a go myself.
      I have noticed fewer people every day in the park where I walk, it must be getting too hot for them. I’ve always said I was born on the wrong continent though; I can’t get enough of walking in the sunshine! With my sunhat and sun cream on, of course.
