Hello July!

I have to say I am pretty excited for the beginning of a new month. It’s a new beginning, and a fresh start. Lately I have just had so much on my mind. So many things I want to do, so many things I NEED to do, it’s been overwhelming. I have a lot I would like to accomplish before this year is up, and having two little ones makes it a little harder. So setting my goals each month is crucial now, I need to keep track of my thoughts and goals each month to make sure I am working towards my goals.

1// Get in Shape

Here we go again, my second pregnancy is officially over and I have big plans to get my pre-pregnancy body back! I’ve started using Herbalife again and I forgot how yummy their Meal Replacement Shakes are. So I’m really excited to be on this journey again, I can’t wait to share more with you guys about it. So wish me luck that I stick to it and have some awesome results to share soon!

2// SAVE Money

I think this is a goal of mine every month. But when do we ever need to NOT save our money? A lot of things that I want to accomplish this year require me to save where I can (for example I’m hoping to get a new car). So this will be a focus for me every month probably, as I need to stay focused on it constantly. Not only do I want to save money but I also want to start learning more about finances and getting mine in a better place. I want to start making money outside of my day job and just get in a better place financially.

3// Read 2 Books

I’ve been doing pretty well with my reading goal this year which is just 24 books, two a month. I am slipping behind a bit though and want to reach my goal of reading two books this month. So if anyone has any great book recommendations send them my way.

4// Plan out blog posts a month in advance

So there are some areas in my life that need to get back in order and under control, and if I’m being honest one of those areas is this lovely blog of mine. Having a new baby is really time consuming and I’ve given myself time to enjoy that, but now I’m ready to get this blog of mine back in order and running smoothly again. So I am hoping to get it so organized and in order that I can get a month’s worth of blog posts done in advance. I think it will help with my time management and make blogging with an infant a little easier.

There you have it, my July goals for 2017. The year is officially past the half way mark and there are still things to do for me. I hope to come back in August with new goals to accomplish! What are your goals for July, or for 2017?? Share them below!


  • I’m also hoping July will be a low-spending month for us–we took a vacation in May and it’s definitely time to get back into savings mode!

    • I hear ya! I’m on the opposite end hoping to be able to make a trip here soon!! So save, save, save! =]

  • These are great goals, Desiree! I love planning out my blog posts by the month. It makes me feel calm knowing what I have coming up rather than scrambling!

    • That’s exactly what I’m looking forward to! Thank you!

  • Girl I’m with you on getting in shape! I’m doing an 8 week clean eating program right now. I have my ups and downs! Thank you for sharing your goals! You got this!

    • That sounds great! I really want to get into clean eating myself! Good luck to you!

  • Jenny

    Great goal list. I particularly like the one about saving money but I’m personal-finance obsessed! Best of luck, I’m sure you’ll do great!
