5 Simple Goals - An Update
This time last month I set myself 5 Simple Goals that I wanted to achieve before the end of the year. I didn't want these goals to be like new years resolutions (forgotten within hours) so I've been trying to hold myself accountable and thought I'd give you a one month update. So here's how I've been doing:
1. Learn new recipes.
This has been going well! I've been trying to bake a little (which is a big deal for me) and I've been trying to branch out in terms of the meals I cook too.
2. Use my film cameras again
So far, no progress here. Still a little too distracted by instagram & my DSLR. I don't know if it counts but I did buy film for my instax mini again so I've been enjoying that.
3. Run 200kms.
I'm well on my way to my goal with this one! Last month when I wrote my goals I was at 82kms and now I'm at 122km and tracking well to easily complete this goal in time.
4. Finish reading Game of Thrones.
I have to admit, this goal may have defeated me. As much as I love the TV show and as much as I love the story lines and characters, I've been really struggling with the books. I don't know what it is about them but I've taken a temporary hiatus to read something else for the meantime.
5. Make an editorial calendar.
This goal has been semi-achieved in a weird kind of way. I've completely mapped out all the posts I want to make for December, but somehow for November I was a little stumped. Which is unfortunate seeing as November is just around the corner and I have much more time up my sleeve to get organised for December. But Dec is always so easy with Christmas wishlists to share and 'the best of 2012' roundups.
