- Get a puppy!
We don’t have one… but two puppies! But not a Golden Retriever like we originally planned. You can read all about our puppers and bird here.
- Get a treadmill
I would still definitely like to get a tredmill, so I can work out in the comfort of my own home – and also watch YouTube/Netflix at the same time! This one isn’t urgent at this stage, but I would definitely like to get one.
- Do more meal prep
We definitely do more meal prep! Our meal prep night is usually a Sunday so we are set and ready for lunches and dinners for the week – this definitely takes a bit of stress off us. Josh will usually also cook a meal during the week as well to keep us going – he gets home earlier than me. We treat ourselves to take-away once a week on the weekend.
- Bake more
I can happliy say that I bake almost EVERY week!! I usually do my choc chip cookies for morning tea for both of us. I make other things every now and then also!
- Put more effort into my blog
I think I have put a little more effort in but I can definitely do better. It is just hard trying to run a blog and work full-time! There is only so much effort I can put in with the time that I have.
- Take more photos
I could definitely improve on this also. I always forget to take my good cameras places with me – they are also bulky and heavy which makes getting around hard. Would definitely still like to take more photos than I do right now. At the moment, most of the pictures I take are of my pets haha.
- Have decor around the house
This is something I’ve been really lazy with, with the new house. It was hard because I was not well for quite a few months after moving in – but when I was better again I totally lost motivation. We do though have a few plants, pillows, photos and diffusers which is a good start.
All in all, I’ve actually surprised myself with how well I’ve done. To be totally honest with you, I forgot about these goals!! You can read my original post below.
1. Get a puppy!
2. Get a treadmill
I’ve wanted a treadmill for quite a while now. So when I get home from work I can just jump straight on and do some cardio, in stead of having to get ready and lock the house up to go for a walk around the neighbourhood. Don’t get me wrong though – going for a walk around outside is GREAT, I discovered that we have a creek with ducks and ducklings a two-minute walk away! I would love to set the treadmill up outside under the patio and mount a small TV on the wall so that I can watch some shows outside to make the time go quicker and so it isn’t as boring!
3. Do more meal prep
4. Bake more
5. Put more effort into my blog
6. Take more photos
This definitely ties in with number 5, more effort on my blog. I would love to start taking more of my own photos for my blog. I would also like to start taking more photos in general. I have a $1000 SLR camera and also an $800 digital camera that I would love to get more use out of. An iPhone photo just seems a lot easier these days.
7. Have more decor around the house
Now that we own a house, we can definitely make it our own by putting in plants and putting up artwork. I have never really had the chance to do this before, and it really excites me that I can finally do this. I am thinking maybe some fake plants, as I can’t really be trusted with live plants as I forget to water them! (who else is like this!?) and I am thinking some nice prints on the wall – nature photos, cities or text artwork. I also can’t forget pictures of us.
