August Goals

August Goals

I have been pretty much lacking when it comes to setting up goals for myself and actually achieving them. Life always seems to get grip of me and I get slammed with work – I think the last goals post was 2 months ago (you can read that post here), so I thought it was about time that I share some August Goals for me to achieve this month.

These short-term goals are just a great way to get things done – life can get extremely hectic and sometimes I forget what needs to be done. I have listed a few short term easy goals I would like to meet by the end of August. Seriously guys I don’t know where this year has gone, I find myself saying that with each month that pasts but it’s just insane how fast time is going by.

  •  Save!!! – straight forward, as I mentioned to you guys I am currently on a massive spending ban, so far things have been going good although I have been having really bad urges to purchase some makeup.
  • Lose Weight – I have been slacking in the weight lose department, I have thrown out the healthy eating I am starting so well with. All the bad food has been making me feel gross about myself and the bad food has just made me feel sicker. With the warmer days around the corner, I’d say it’s about time I get back to losing weight and eating healthier. To date I currently weigh 63kg, I do feel very uncomfortable with my weight at the moment. For those of you who can remember when I started eating healthier earlier this year I weighed 68kg!! Which boggles my mind to be honest, I really let myself go and I do not want to go down that road again. Losing weight is hard and not easy at all but I do want to reach my goal weight of 57kg so let’s see how things month goes. I will not be adding any amount to how much I loose yet August will be a month I will be detoxing.
  • Schedule More Posts – I am pretty happy with the how my blogging has gone the last few weeks, I have had a few posts schedules so August I definitely want to make sure I keep it up and stay at least a week ahead with my posts to make sure I have enough content always.
  •  Eating Healthy – This goes along with losing weight, eating healthy is top priority for me this month so fingers cross I will be able to resists Pizza.

These are my August Goals, what goals have you guys set for yourselves this August? Let me know in the comment section down below.

  • All the best with achieving your goals this month <3
    I have full faith in you

    Eating healthy is a struggle sometimes, but if you do well most of the week, a little slice of pizza during the weekend wont hurt 😉

    I am so bad at eating healthy (actually sat here with a chocolate bar at 10am) but it’s definitely something I need to change. Love seeing Goals posts, always so inspiring!


    • Me too, it’s so hard all I want to do is stuff my face with chocolate and burgers

  • Great goals! One of mine is definitely to schedule more posts too! x


  • Fantastic goals Candice, I struggle with my weight a lot and am hoping to try and slim down a bit more as the year goes on and actually go to the gym. So I am rooting for you, fingers crossed we’ll both be feeling great by the end of the year. Have a brilliant week x

    Shame, I agree on the weight loss and healthy eating thing – I lost over 10kgs for my wedding, and since we’ve been back at work and from honeymoon, it’s been so hard!
    I’m on a healthy eating kick now, where I eat as healthy and low carb as I can during the week, and if there’s something I’m craving, I’ll have it on the weekend – I won’t throw all my good work down the drain, but I’ll allow myself a little of something.

  • Amy

    These could be my goals too! Besides losing weight which is sadly on hold whilst I get rounder haha. I’m focused on saving and scheduling X – Amy

  • Good luck with your goals! I’m also trying to eat healthier.

  • Kelsey & Kenecha

    It’s always good to set goals 🙂 I hope you reach them!


  • These are all good goals, I need to start eating healthier, I feel so nasty too

  • Suze

    I’d also like to drop a few kilos and I figure that now is the right time – let’s hope we both succeed!

  • These seem like achievable goals and I wish you the best. I recently changed my workout routine and it helped motivate me a lot since I stress about it with my crazy work schedule. /Madison

    • I seriously wish I could work out, but I find it so how to get motivated

  • Loosing some weight, eating healthier and work out more is also on my goal list for the end of this year. In summer I always tend to let myself a little go… It’s amazing how many kilo you’ve already lost!

    • Thank you Kristina! HAHA I need to lose a few more but I just feel better about myself

  • I’ve managed to become really healthy in the past year, which I’m super proud of! Lovely goals, I hope you reach all of them!!

    Have an awesome day!
    xx Kris

  • Yes, I love a lot of your goals! They are achievable and that is what make them great. xoxo Cris

  • Sasha Kempen

    These are great goals and totally manageable. You should look at the
    Sleekgeek 30-Days of Healthy Habits Challenge Facebook group or the Sleekgeek Facebook pge. I’m currently doing the 30 Days of Healthy Habits and it’s a great and fun way to start getting into better health. I don’t have a goal to lose weight, just to firm up.My goal for this month is to just work really hard at university, as I’m currently doing my final year project (I study architecture) and I just want to do well and finish strong.

    • I am definitely checking that out – thank you Sasha!

      • Sasha Kempen

        No problem! It just helps instill healthy habits, like drinking 8 cups of water or sleeping more than 8 hours a night. I am loving it and they usually have an incentive, like a Fitbit up for grabs

  • Well, I think you’re doing great with the blogging aspect. The others are very doable Candice. You will be just fine.

  • Wish you all the best! xx

  • One of my goals has been to schedule more posts as well and just generally be more on top of things. Good luck with your goals! xx Brynn

  • Kim

    These are great goals. I always try to eat healthier too, but it’s so hard, isn’t it!

  • Abz Kellett

    Trying to eat healthier too! So far it’s going okay but I can never resist cakes

  • These are some great goals! Loved reading this post.
    Isn’t That Charming.

  • My top goal is to eat healthy. I have been loving all kinds of unhealthy food recently, so this need to change! Good goals btw! So many similar to mine!
