Motivation Monday

Motivation Monday/ Tuesday (oops) Update 2

(I fell asleep so early last night so I totally never finished this in time. Oops… zzz)

Week 2 update is here! I can’t thank everyone who read my previous post enough. It’s done so well that I’ve had more views than last month already. It’s also really helping me stay accountable!

Bullet Journal

This one is staying but evolving. I used my habit tracker for half the week then stopped so I need to make sure I stick to it. I’ve also made a wishlist spread as well. I’m looking to add a few more collection ideas such as books to read and weight I’ve lost as well.

DRINK WATER

SHOCKER. This one stays as well. I have done better but still nowhere near good enough. I’m going to really push this one this week in particular.

Take more pictures

I bought a beautiful new camera and have been using it occasionally when I went out but I’m having issues with my rear facing camera on my phone meaning I’m now taking fewer photos than ever. I want to try and get into the habit of carrying my camera with me most places.

Keep an eye out on Instagram to see how this one goes ;p

Read before bed and switch off

This is one that I think has a lot of bearing on my sleep and how I feel the next day. Unfortunately, I’ve gotten to a point where I can’t really sleep unless I have something on the TV. I want to try and get ready for bed a half hour before I want to sleep by and then read or plan the next day for half an hour. Any luck this will help the quality of my sleep!

Larger Goals

Lose Weight

This one is getting there, I’ve definitely worked harder at the gym when I’ve been recently. Saturday I smashed my 5K time by 4 minutes which I think is huge. I still need to work a lot more on my food as I’ve been indulging a little lately.

Weight Update: 0lbs +-

Run A 5k

As you saw above this one is going well for me. I’ve managed to make my 5k time 4 minutes quicker and I feel like it’s only going to get better. I’m going to plan a 5k training plan and put in my bullet journal. I’m also going to sign up to the 5k this month too.

Overall I feel like this week has been okay!

2 YouTubers you need in your life

Kalyn Nicholson

Those of you who know me will know that Kalyn Nicholson is the 1 lifestyle YouTuber that I talk about all the time and have followed for years. There are a lot of reasons why I adore Kalyn. She’s such an inspiration because she is a genuinely kind hearted girl who spends her time online inspiring others to be their best self. She’s in her twenties, as am I so I feel like we have a lot in common and she speaks more about being an adult and is a good role model for younger girls.

Koze is Kalyn’s new site and brand and the shop is opening very soon. The main thing to drop from Koze (other than the cute pictures of course) is her ebook #Feels which you can purchase here.

The book basically has beautiful artwork and talks about a bunch of feelings and situations and how you can get through them. It’s helped me through a lot of situations recently so if you need a pickmeup I would definitely give it a go! 🙂

Lavendaire

Aileen is the owner of Lavendaire and possibly one of the most calming people that I watch on YouTube. She’s also one of the few people who’s newsletters I actually look forward to because they’re always so positive and helpful. She’s also very beautiful and her Instagram feed is amazing. She does YouTube videos and has a blog which focus on inspiration and helping people to discover more about themselves.

She also has an amazing SoundCloud account and is an amazing musician.

The Artist of Life workbook is Aileen’s workbook and is basically an inspiring book that you go through and it helps you to figure out where you are and where you should be going.

There’s a lot to be learned by going through this workbook even if you already feel like you’ve got it all together.
