I’m doing a monthly round-up of how my resolutions are going, as a way to encourage me to stay on track and plan goals, rather than leaving everything to the last minute! Here’s my May round-up.
Progress Made – May
- 200 sugar free days: 25 (102/200)
I passed the halfway mark in my sugar free goal this month – it’s continuing to get easier altho finding snacks still proves to be problematic when I’m out of the house. I’m finding that if I binge on sugar now I actually feel really rough the next day, like a sugar hangover, which makes it easier not to eat it as I don’t really enjoy feeling like that, ha.
- Clear my ‘to read’ shelf: 2 (16/48)
I managed to finish Bad Feminist this month – it’s given me a lot of food for thought! I also sped through The Time of Your Life by Cecelia Ahern which wasn’t the most amazing book I’ve ever read but also not the worst. I’ll take that.
I’m now at the point where I’ve read like, 16 books and…am back to my original number that I started with at the end of the year. I didn’t, however, buy a single book in May so at least that number didn’t increase? Heh.
- Read 100 books: 9 (54/100)
Slow book month. I had a run of terrible books at the beginning of the month, sigh. It seems to be on the turn tho, thankfully! I haven’t quite finished Bel Canto yet but I’ve been loving it so far. Plus isn’t the cover pretty?
- Watch 100 films: 7 (54/100)
I barely watched any films this month. Yawn. The only one worth noting was Short Term 12, which was a definite must watch.
- Watch 26 films at the cinema: 4 (12/26)
The lack of interesting films at the cinema continued. I watched Age of Adaline, Top 5, Pitch Perfect 2 and Man Up. None of them really did much for me (even PP2. I mean, it was fun but nowhere near as good at the first one.)
- Weigh no more at the end of the year than I did at the start: -3lbs (-11lbs overall)
The running and calorie counting continued and is obviously working. Whoo!
Push against my comfort zone
I ran a 5K! Comfort zone, pushed.
Spend less at the supermarket than we did in 2014
This goal is continuing nicely – we’re looking like we’ll be saving around £1000, which is kind of nuts, no?
I gave a friend some fun flavoured Oreos because I know that he likes them, because I am nice like that 😉
More progress made on the remaining 31 for 31 tasks. We went UV bowling (the UV part was actually pretty lame, sadly) and the cookbook is almost ready to print. Plus I’ve been learning sign language, which is really fun 🙂
Have more patience
Maybe? Or maybe my patience just hasn’t been tested as much this month. Who knows.
