Hello June!

Here we are at the start of another month, so it's time to set myself a few little goals and share my plans for the coming weeks! Previously, I've also included a little round-up of the previous month's goals in these posts, but having swapped up my Empties posts for a more general 'In Retrospect' post, I've mentioned in that post how I got on with my goals for May - have a read of that here if you missed it! So without further ado, let's start thinking about June...

I was supposed to be going to see McFly in Glasgow in the middle of the month, but due to silly Harry hurting his neck, that's now been postponed until September... I do still have some things to look forward to in June, though! The first Total Warrior event of the year will be towards the end of the month in Leeds, so I'll be helping out there - this will be my fourth year volunteering with Warrior and it gets more fun each time!

Run at least once per week. I had previously set myself a specific distance goal but having injured my ankle quite badly last month, I don't want to push myself too hard at first and risk doing too much, too soon - I just want to ease myself back into the habit of running regularly. Obviously I'll have to see how this goes! I also want to start doing some ankle strengthening exercises, as I have always had weak ankles and this whole incident has just underlined how much I need to do something about that...
Finish the month at least £350 from the bottom of my overdraft. I mentioned last month that I was letting my financial goals take a backseat for a month as work had cocked up my wages and massively underpaid me (boo!), but I'm hoping to get back on it this month and start working on reducing my overdraft again. I've also got my car insurance due in August to think about... It'll be small steps with this one but I'm determined to get myself out of the red. I'm not sure if this is an optimistic target or not, but hopefully by next month I'll have a more realistic idea of how much I can hope to clear each month.

Have a major sort-out of clothes & books. My brother will be moving back home at the end of the month and bringing with him a whole assortment of belongings - which means all the things I'm currently keeping in his room need to be... redistributed. I've been offered some loft space in my best friend's house but even so, I think a sort-out and slim-down of my possessions is well over-due. I started this off in May, cleaning out a load of paperwork I don't need anymore and even throwing away some make-up, but there is definitely still work to be done!
• See friends at least twice. I like this goal and I'm sticking with it, as it's a really good motivator for me to actually make the effort to spend time with the people I care about!

Take part in this Instagram challenge. I've really been working on building my Instagram profile recently, trying to post more regularly as well as interact more with the people I follow, and I love the look of this challenge! You can follow me here if you'd like to keep up with what I'm posting. The emphasis on this challenge is with the creativity rather than pressuring yourself to complete every prompt; I'm still going to have a go at completing it, but won't be beating myself up if life gets in the way.
Get a job. Another repeat, but I do have three interviews arranged in June, so I'm quite hopeful here... We'll see how they go!

Are you setting yourself any goals for June? I'd love to hear what you're going to be getting up to!! Don't forget to have a look at how I got on with May's goals and let me know what you think of my In Retrospect post!

  7. Ew I know how if feels when it comes to managing your overdraft! I got so close to paying mine off, then I moved and went straight back in. I think I'll have to set myself the same challenge!

  9. Good luck with the interviews! Don't even remind me about car insurance, mines due late August too. I've challenged myself to actually sort out and redecorate the spare bedroom once and for all this month, let's hope. xo
