Welcome to my first monthly goal update! In the past I was updating my goals weekly but it seemed like a bit much and became very redundant. Now that I’m only updating you guys monthly I feel like it will be much more interesting to see how I’ve been doing! So let’s get started.
Lose Weight, Eat Healthier, and Exercise
According to my last update I had lost 7 pounds so far. I haven’t shared my weight yet but now that I am only updating monthly it is a lot harder to remember where I am at so here it goes! I’m about 6 feet tall and as of my last update I weighed 218 lbs. When I started monitoring my goal I weighed 225 lbs and at the beginning of the year I was at 230 lbs.
My goal for July was to lose 3 more pounds to get back down to 215 lbs but I didn’t come anywhere close to that. Instead I have stayed the same and maintained my weight of 218 lbs.
So what happened? I’ve been trying to get so much done lately that something had to give. Instead of focusing on losing weight I switched to maintaining my weight for July after about a week in. I let myself eat some junk food and eat out a bit more to get it out of my system and plan to return to trying to lose weight in August.
My goal for August is to lose 4 lbs which should take me down to 214 lbs.
Quit Being So Lazy!
I wanted to try to get my motorcycle throttle handle fixed and continue hanging some doors. I had 2 regular doors and 3 closet doors left to go. I needed to cut them, paint them and hang them.
Again like my previous goal I was pretty burned out this month and decided to put these projects on hold. I’ve been spending so much time on my next goal that none of these got done. I would say that I’ve been much more productive, just not on these tasks.
My number one priority when I turn back to this list will be my motorcycle so that I can ride it when it cools off in the fall. Will it get done in August? I don’t know, but if I work on anything in this list the motorcycle should be it!
My main goal for my blog was to get my Alexa rank to go down below 200,000. My ranking was 206,643 as of my last update and I am very happy to report I have absolutely smashed the 200,000 mark and my current Alexa rank as of yesterday was 125,704!
The main reason for this goal was to qualify to become a member after successfully completing the Yakezie Challenge! Now that I have reached my Alexa rank goal I will continue to try to maintain my ranking below 200,000 but other than that Alexa rank is no longer that important to me so I won’t be updating this anymore. Thanks for all of your support!
As of my last update I had 112 twitter followers. I set a goal that I thought was unreasonable at the time, to have 150 twitter followers on July 31. Well I smashed this goal too and currently have 171 followers as of last night!
So this time I think I need to set my sights a bit higher. If I don’t quite get to this goal I’ll be OK with it but I am going to try my hardest. My goal for the end of August is to have 300 twitter followers. So, if you haven’t followed me on twitter yet I’d really appreciate you helping me to reach my end of August goal!
Feed subscribers are much harder to gain. As of my last update I had 55 RSS feed subscribers and hoped to have 75 RSS feed subscribers by this update. This one was a close call but as of last night I have 76 RSS feed subscribers!
I haven’t been focusing on this goal as much so I’d like to keep it reasonable. I hope to have 100 feed subscribers by the end of August. So, again, if you haven’t subscribed to my RSS feed yet I’d really appreciate you helping me to reach my end of August goal!
That’s a Wrap!
That is all I have for you this update! Hopefully the monthly format will go over well and I plan on updating everyone again at the beginning of September. Time flies when you’re a blogger!
What goals have you had recently? How have you been doing on them?
