June Goals

June Goals

First, let’s take a look at my May Goals and see how I did. I’m warning you, it’s sad. I’m rationalizing by telling my self real-world May was only 22 days for me, since everything after was wedding weekend and honeymoon.

+Get Married. (Probably? I’m writing this post BEFORE the wedding so I can schedule it ahead of time, so I can’t say for sure. I guess, let’s go with yes.)

+Create to-do lists for wedding planning so I’m not saving it all for the last minute. (I actually think I did okay here. All the big things I had left to do were finished at least a week before, so the final week was just little things).

+Follow a meal plan. (Nope. Failed so bad.)

+Finish new blog design. (I didn’t finish it, but I made a TON of progress! It was hard to get to it much because my priorities had to be wedding, then blog, then new design. And obviously my real job squeezed somewhere in there.)

+Schedule posts and social media for two weeks I’ll be gone. (Yes! I was really worried it was going to go dark for two weeks, which is like two years in social media time. Thanks goodness that didn’t happen).

+Take more frequent walks. (Sadly, this one is a no as well. But definitely next month!)

June Goals

+Follow a meal plan for real. I’m serious this time. I actually wrote the meal plan and shopping list before leaving for the wedding/honeymoon so I can just go grocery shopping without much preparation when we get back. That way we don’t have a week of fast food while we transition back into the real world.

+Take more frequent walks and take Leia to the dog park! My best friend is getting a puppy, so he/she will obviously be best friends with Leia and they can play together at the dog park 🙂

+Relaunch the blog with a new design. I’ve been talking about this relaunch forever, but it’s really happening this month!

+Unpack and do honeymoon laundry in a timely manner. I’m not saying it has to be done the day we get back, but it better not still be there by the time I’m writing my July goals

Hopefully I do a little better this month! What are some of your goals for June?

Inspiration for the Uninspired

Inspirational Quote Van Gogh

Like most people, I have days where I feel completely unmotivated and uninspired. Some days it’s because I feel tired and sluggish. I haven’t had enough coffee and my brain doesn’t want to turn on. Sometimes it has nothing to do with being tired. I feel well-rested. I’ve had more than enough coffee. I just honestly can’t focus. I stare at my computer screen and I somehow can’t force myself to do anything. So much time will pass before I realize that I literally haven’t accomplished anything.

Between my full-time job, my blog, and a home to keep clean, there is no shortage of tasks to accomplish. Having one day where I can’t seem to get anything done puts me seriously behind on all three.

This week has been one of those weeks. I get to work and dread opening those emails, listening to those voice mails, and doing the basic day to day tasks that need to get done. When I got home, I wanted to do literally anything but clean. Unfortunately, that lack of motivated extended to the blog as well. Thankfully I schedule most of my posts ahead of time, because I’ve been so lacking inspiration and haven’t been able to write and word before this post!

Hopefully my inspiration will be back next week so I can have a week full of great posts!

Does anyone else struggle from a lack of motivation? How do you deal with it?
