May is one of my favourite months. There is something about spring I just love – the light mornings, the weather starting to subside, the pretty flowers. My dad picked me up this orchid last week, isn’t it so pretty? The last month has been so busy so I’m looking forward to taking my foot off the accelerator for the month ahead and focusing on some small goals that I want to achieve. I had started doing just specific fitness goals each month but I’ve decided to combine them with my general goals for the month ahead.

Get settled in my job – May will be my first full month in my job and I’m looking forward to getting stuck in, settled and start enjoying it. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s only for a year so I want to start grabbing this experience with both hands and start to up my game.

Continue to declutter – After reading The Magic of Tidying Up, it’s made me oh so inspired to get rid of all the clutter I own. It’s not until I’ve started doing this that I’ve realised I’m a complete in denial hoarder. Seriously, how many receipts and old magazines can a girl own? I’ve started on my wardrobe, given clothes to charity and put a few bits and bobs on Depop/Ebay so the next task is my drawers, my bathroom & my DVD collection.

Make more time with friends – I’m a bit guilty of not being super social. I speak to most of my friends every other day and we are both there if we need each other but I feel like I rarely have time to catch up with them and it’s just because everyone is out living their life with their own commitments and what not. This month, I want to make a conscious effort to catch up with my friends, even if it’s just for a coffee or a quick bite to eat.

Lose another 4 pounds – In my last fitness goals post, I wanted to lose another 4 pounds which I actually managed to achieve bringing my grand total weight loss to a stone. I’m so chuffed at how well I’ve managed to stick at eating healthy and working out – to the point when I do have a cheat night, the next day I’m ready to get my head back in the game. I’d like to lose another 4 pounds if I can this month so here’s hoping I manage to achieve it.

Make more of an effort with my appearance – Bit of an odd goal but I really do feel this last month, I’ve let myself go. Everyday when I go to work, my hair is pulled back in a messy pony tail, I have minimal makeup on and I’m always wearing the same outfits every other day. I can’t wait till payday to treat myself and start making more of a conscious effort to look better – the just rolled out of bed look is doing me no favours. 

Do you have any goals for May? I’d love to hear what they are below or you can always tweet/instagram me at @whatamydidblog – thanks for reading.
