My life is changing and I’m going to keep you updated: Chapter 2 recap and Chapter 3 aims :)

On the 9th of July I uploaded my Month 1 aims for my Changing my life series and then on the 17th of August I uploaded my Chapter 1 recap and Chapter 2 aims πŸ™‚ Since then I have been hard at work on my Chapter 2 aims and am very excited to start work on my Chapter 3 aims which I started on the 10th of September πŸ™‚

Favourite quote of the month: Be a Pineapple- Stand Tall, Wear a crown and Be Sweet on the Inside

This month has been another crazy one! I went to Selsey (a beach where my family has a caravan) for 2 weekends which was so much fun πŸ™‚ My brother has moved out of the family home to move in with friends which means that the house has gone from 5 to 4 and then my Grandma has also moved out as well so the house is even quieter! I did a very exciting photoshoot which was a lot of fun and have seen a few friends that I haven’t seen in a long time πŸ™‚

  1. My first aim of the Second Chapter of this series was to recreate a Mac and Cheese dish that my brothers Fiancee had made for us before as she had given me the recipe πŸ™‚ My Mum asked if I could make this as a side dish for one of her dinners which I was absolutely delighted to do and I think it went down well because before I managed to grab a picture of the whole thing my Dad had already taken a portion!! A few weeks later I made it again and it went down just as well however this time I did manage to grab a picture before anyone served themselves!

2. I started off this aim rather slow and only ran once a week for the first two weeks however I then pulled it back and ran 3 times a week for the last 2 weeks so that I could catch up on myself which has been a lot of fun πŸ™‚ I can feel the improvement that running more than once a week brings as well because my pace has been picking up since I started running more πŸ™‚

3. I have managed to keep up my higher water intake on most of the days this Chapter with a few slip ups here and there where I have been out for the day and haven’t managed it but overall its definitely improving and so is my sleep schedule πŸ™‚ I have had to be up earlier on quite a few days this chapter anyway but have managed to wake up earlier every day even if I end up laying in bed on my phone for a while when I do!

4. I haven’t managed to sign up for a credit card as I have been doing some research and want to make sure I get the right one for me however I have had a sort out of some of my outgoings and seeing how I could save some money and also how much I can realistically save a month which was really interesting πŸ™‚

5. Maya started going back to her puppy classes at the end of Chapter 1 so since then hasn’t missed a class and has been really enjoying being back working on her obedience stuff πŸ™‚ I did some Agility work in the garden with Maya which was a LOT of fun and have started teaching her some new tricks πŸ™‚ During lockdown I started teaching her Bed and Hold so we have continued to work on them but have also added in Beg/Sit Pretty and also Crawl πŸ™‚ I have also been watching some training videos online as well as going through some of my Work Webinars on behaviour and training to improve my knowledge πŸ™‚

6. For Annas birthday Hannah and I ordered her some flowers and also some pancake mixes for her to make which looked absolutely amazing and we also zoomed with her while all eating a chinese take-away so that it felt like we were all at a restaurant together! We decided on Apple Crumble and Cinnamon as well as Rocky road πŸ™‚ For Ellie I decided to send her a fern plant as she really loves plants and had just moved so I thought it would be a nice addition to her house and went to see her before she starts her new job soon πŸ™‚

7. At the start of this chapter I signed up for 2 months free on Skillshare so have watched a few photography courses on there to try and improve my photography and editing skills πŸ™‚ I also had to do a photoshoot for some dresses that I had brought which was a lot of fun however I can’t post those photos yet as they were for a specific blog post which is being posted on Friday πŸ™‚

I have had such a lot of fun completing these goals and am so excited to start working on Chapter 3 πŸ™‚

  1. Hannah who some of you might know from some of my previous blog posts has challenged me to be vegetarian for 5 days this month which is going to be really interesting!! I’ll let you guys know how I get on and post some photos of some of my meals πŸ™‚
  2. I have started running 2x a week which I would love to continue and also run 3k at least once a week πŸ™‚
  3. I would like to continue the idea of getting up before 9am every day and also drinking 2l of water a day as I haven’t quite gotten the hang of it yet!
  4. Decorate my room for Halloween + buy Maya a Halloween themed toy πŸ™‚
  5. Continue improving my training knowledge and continue working on Mayas new tricks πŸ™‚
  6. Write up a country from Great Grandmas journal πŸ™‚
  7. Write a Halloween themed blog post, reach 1,300 followers on here and also continue improving my camera knowledge and put it into practice with a photoshoot πŸ™‚

I am going to do an update first thing in October as I would like to move the date back to the 1st of the month that I start each new chapter πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments how you think I did and any goals you can think of for next month πŸ™‚

  1. The mac and cheese looks so good but also would look so much better with breadcrumbs on top (I just love breadcrumbs okay?!).
    Excited to read your blog post about how you have found being vegetarian! xx
