It’s been a while, but here’s a look at how I got on in August with my new year’s resolutions.
1-Eat Healthy & Exercise
Tick and tick! I did relax my diet at times as we celebrated my 30th birthday and went on holiday to Turkey, but I still ate healthy most of the time.
In regards to exercise I kept up my usual routine of working out at least three times a week. In Turkey we did a four hour hike through Rose and Red Valley, as well as swimming.
August wasn’t my best reading month. I read:
-Lonely Planet Turkey
I started reading another book, which I’ve almost finished. However, I’ll mention it in September’s update.
3- Do 2 New Things Per Month
We went on a hot air balloon ride for my 30th birthday.
Quad biked through Turkish valleys.
Stayed in a cave hotel.
And much more.
4-Travel/Go For Days Out
In August we went to:
Both are new places for us and Turkey was also a new country.
We had lots of wonderful days out in Turkey, visiting the valleys, Goreme Open Air Museum and exploring the town itself.
In August I did purchase a few new outfits and me and my partner went away to Turkey and Boscombe for a long weekend, so we both ended up spending quite a bit of money. However, it was mostly on experiences and days out/breaks rather than possessions. I hope to save better throughout September.
6-Use My Phone Less
This is something I really go through phases with. On holiday I looked at my phone a lot less, but the days I’m working I check my phone whilst travelling, at work, etc. I definitely check my phone a lot out of boredom and habit.
Let me know how you’re getting on with your new year’s resolutions.
