| Did I Accomplish My Spring Goals? | Spring Goals Update

The first day of Summer is in less than a week! YAY! I still can't believe how fast the year has gone by, it feels like Spring just started! 

If you read my Spring Goals post, you'll know that I set myself 8 goals to complete by the end of Spring. Setting goals for myself is important to me because it helps me keep track of the things I want to accomplish. I worked really hard towards my goals these past couple of months, but keep reading to find out if I accomplished any!

1. Exercise More

I'm happy to say that I'm doing really well with this goal! I've been working out regularly, 5 days a week, and I finally have a routine down. I really want to get a gym membership because these at home workouts aren't gonna cut it soon and I want to take my little "fitness journey" to the next level. I have and still do take breaks with my workouts, and I'm learning to not beat myself up over it. As long as I get right back on track, I'm fine! 

2. Eat Better

This is one of the harder goals I set for myself and I have yet to accomplish this one, healthy eating is just such a challenge for me! I still eat too much junk, but I have been slowly swapping out really bad junk food for slightly better foods. I try to snack on Greek yogurt and applesauce instead of cookies and donuts. I've also been eating a high-protein snack everyday around 3 PM to prevent myself from going crazy with snacks when I start to get tired and hungry and dinner isn't for another few hours. I also try not to get take-out as much and cook at home as often as possible, that way I know exactly what's going into my body.

This goal is definitely still a work in progress for me but I'm going to keep challenging myself to eat healthier.  

3. Organize Clothes

I guess I could say I've somewhat accomplished this goal. I recently went through all of my clothes and donated a few pieces. Everything also currently has a place and I'm paying attention to clothing I don't wear often, that way I know what I should get rid of next. This is something that I still have to work a little on, but I'm proud of what I've done so far.

4. Spring Cleaning

My apartment isn't a mess, but I still have loads of organizing to do! I need to go through everything and throw out some stuff, but finding time to do this is tough. I try to do a little bit every weekend, that way I can slowly, but surely, get my apartment into the shape I want it to be in. 

1. Revamp Blog

No, I haven't done this yet. However, I've been looking for ideas for templates on Etsy and planning out how I want my blog to look. I also made a few changes to my social media accounts and I'm loving them!
This is something that I'll have to set aside some time over the weekend to do. I'm also waiting to have a little extra money to purchase a pretty blog template and header.

2. Read More Blogs

I have been reading a lot more blogs recently, but I'm the worst at leaving comments! I hate that I always forget to do it because as a blogger, I know just how amazing it feels when readers take the time to leave a comment. I definitely want to continue reading other blogs but of course, I have to remember to leave comments!

3. Social Media

I had specific follower goals for the Spring on all of my social media accounts and I hit all of them this season! I've also been focusing more on interacting and supporting other bloggers on social media, as well as interacting with the people who read my blog. I'm going to continue to do this and of course try to reach some more goals I have set! 

4. Giveaway

I wanted to be able to do another giveaway this Spring and I had the chance to do one when my Twitter hit 1,000 followers! I love giveaways, they're fun and I love giving back to the people who support me. Right now, I'm planning out an Instagram exclusive giveaway so keep an eye out!

I honestly think I did pretty well with my Spring Goals. I accomplished so much so far and although I still have a few things to work on, I'm really proud of myself! I'm going to continue to work on some of these goals and of course, set a few more for myself. 

Thanks for reading!
