April Goals

Anyone else extremely happy that it's spring and warmer weather is finally on the horizon? I am! I'll be honest, I failed at pretty much every single goal I posted last month. I didn't book a holiday or practise any yoga/ pilates, so I'm hoping this month with the longer days I'll find the time to do both. I'm thinking Barcelona at the start of May for a few days! Anyway, onwards and upwards - here are my goals for April

1) Upload a fitness related post

I'm by no means an expert and I'm scared of coming across as that preachy, annoying person raving about exercise when in fact I'm still a long way off my end goal. However since October last year I have been going to the gym 3-4 times a week most weeks and I have so much to say about it. I'm thinking it would be nice to either share my gym routine, how I stay motivated to go in the first place or my 'gym story' in general, because I've not always liked exercise at all.

2) Go Chocolate FREE

If you follow me on twitter you'll know I'm raving about some sort of chocolate on a weekly basis (my current obsession is Cadbury's mini eggs, they're my all time favourite treat). Every time I eat more than a cube of chocolate my skin goes into melt down mode, well that's my theory anyway. This month I want to quit chocolate (I'm already scared) and actually see whether it's that which turns my skin into a disaster zone. Also, I love a challenge, and as sad as it sounds I really do think it will be hard to cut it out!

 3) Do something spontaneous 

If something isn't planned usually I just won't do it, but it's the spontaneous things I do that I seem to enjoy most! I want to become more laid back and just say yes to every opportunity I get rather than worrying about things that don't even matter. Today (it's currently Wednesday 29th) I said yes to going for afternoon tea with Boohoo with only 5 days notice, and I'm pretty proud of myself for just doing it - fingers crossed it will be worth it!

What are your goals for April?

    1. Aw thank you, I wasn't sure whether I liked it or not so I'm glad you think that. I'll definitely do a fitness post!

  2. Love reading goal posts! I hope you can manage to book that trip to Barcelona. That would be lovely. I don't eat chocolate due to suffering with acid reflux caused by anxiety so it's far too rich for me and flares up the symptoms. So I totally know the struggle of giving it up, but my skin and digestion has definitely made it all worth it! It's easy once you've stuck to it xx

    1. I do too, I find them so motivating! I booked it, got it booked on Saturday so I've ticked that off my list! Ahh I'm glad to hear its been worth it for you, I'm glad I'm doing it and I have a feeling it will last longer than the month, I'm loving how much of a challenge it has been (and I'm only on day 3 haha)! x
