It’s been a pretty good year but the fact that 2015 ends in four months is putting me in a state of semi-panic. I’m asking myself: Have I done or achieved enough? Am I where I want to be? What else can I do? Why can’t I stop gaining weight???
I already have goals for the year but I want to make the most out of the remaining months. Enter: monthly goals. Nothing big, just small things that will hopefully make me feel like I have my shit together.
Here are my August goals:
Clean up my Pinterest
White girls are all over Pinterest but I’m not sure I should be, considering that usage in the Philippines is pretty low. Still, I’ve invested some time in it and the least I can do is try and make it work for me. So before August ends, I hope to have cleaned up and streamlined by boards (instead of starting over).
Make my first Buddha bowl
Also known as glory or bowls, Buddha bowls are basically hearty bowls filled with different combinations of greens, raw or roasted vegetables, starches, protein, nuts and seeds, and grains. They’re nourishing and are supposedly fast and easy to make. Recipes are all over Pinterest.
They look SO good and I want to have one every night for dinner.
Drink more green tea
I got my annual physical exam results today and that stupid piece of paper says I’m overweight (based on BMI, which is bullshit). I’m not too bothered, but I could at least try not to be so unhealthy. I already cut out land meat from my life and I don’t see myself quitting sweets or beer, so my strategy is to add one healthy thing to my diet: green tea.
(I tried white tea and it tastes terrible???)
Read 3 books from my book stack
(Minus We Were Liars, which I finished last week.)
For August, I plan to read Rich Bitch, Anatomy of a Misfit, and Good Omens. I’m also putting myself on a book shopping ban until I get through this stack.
Don’t forget: it’s Friday’s 10 Happy Things tomorrow!
