Shaping Up In July!

by Megan

Wow, June was such an awesome month! I added over 130 GFC followers, and a bunch of Bloglovin’ and Feedburner followers (I should be keeping better track), and I made some new blogger friends along the way!

I went on vacations to Mexico and Disneyland, and I was a blog angel. I worked a lot, which was a nice change for me, to get out of the house and let Daniel play Mr. Mom.

I won some sweet giveaways, including a Lime Ricki swimsuit and, most recently, a $20 credit to the Hollie Rogue shop! Thanks Elaine, Kelly and Kristine! I even didn’t win a giveaway, and I’m still getting a prize!

I did my first vlog, for Brooke‘s talent vlog contest! (Psst, email her at brookecoveredingrace@gmail.com to vote for ME!)

I hosted a pretty successful first link-up party, the A Look Back link-up, the second of which is going on now!

And I started a series called The Nitty Gritty of Blogging, where I taught how to utilize Feedburner to its full potential!

Let’s revisit my June goals and see how I did!

Make buttons: I did make new buttons, but I’m not crazy about them. I would like to have buttons that include my picture, but I haven’t been happy with anything yet. I will keep experimenting!


Read more in Jesus The Christ: I did read more, but I still have a long ways to go. Also, I wasn’t going to start another book until I had finished it, but I kind of did. I needed something to listen to while I run, so I started listening to the audio book of the next book in the fiction series I’m reading, and now I’m about 3/4 through it and I can’t stop until I’m done!

Get my right split back: No… But it’s my own fault. I only stretched a couple of times this month. I hate having to slow down and just sit and stretch. It’s boring to me.

Lose 9 pounds: Now this was a big one. I didn’t think I could actually lose 9 pounds in one month, but I wanted to set the bar high, and I came so close! I lost 8.2 pounds this month! I am still so proud of that, and I know it’ll only be another day or two before I hit the 9 that I was going for. This makes a total of 13.2 pounds lost in about 6-7 weeks.

Onwards to July!

July Goals:
Read 100 pages in Jesus The Christ: I think if I quantify the goal, I’ll be more likely to reach it.
Cross off two more items on my 30 Before 30 list
Add new sponsorship options for August: More info coming on this soon!
Lose 8.3 pounds: Specific, I know, but another 8.3 pounds will get me halfway to my goal, from where I started! That would be amazing. I have LOTS of running to do in July, and I’m still completely off sugar, so I think I can do it!
Five weeks left of summer break for us- going to enjoy it the best we can! Hope you are all having great summers too!

These are great goals! I love how specific they are, it helps to know just how close you come to reaching them!
