Hello! Another month has passed and we are already 1/3 of the way through the year. Unreal! This month has been a real mixed bag. I knew I wouldn’t achieve everything, but I’m all about being honest here! Here are my aims for April 2020 – the results!
Aims for April 2020 – the results
Home aims for April 2020 – the results
Meal plan all month. Achieved. It went really well! I did a LOT of cooking from scratch this month.
Try 2 new recipes. Achieved. One of my highlights were these oven baked hash browns. They’re tasty, crispy and delicious.
Use my *breadmaker at least 4 times. Achieved. This month I have baked a lot of loaves of bread, made chocolate chip brioche rolls, pizza dough in the breadmaker and made homemade garlic bread. I also made the dough for this soft white rolls recipe.
Use my *pressure cooker for 3 hot lunches, soups etc. Achieved. I’ve cooked up chicken for lunch, made soup and enjoyed simple pasta dishes too. I have also got lots of fantastic cookbooks recently too, as The Book People had a closing down sale and I wanted to treat myself!
Complete TeamTomm each day in April. Achieved. My home is feeling (mostly) clean, tidy and organised. I had 2 days where I had to catch up, as we had a fencer working here, but it’s gone well and kept me on track mentally.
Financial aims for April 2020 – the results
Make money matched betting. Failed. I wanted to make £200+. I did earn money, but slightly less than £200. This is the first time in a LONG time that I haven’t hit a matched betting goal, but I like to keep things honest around here! Sports are just cancelled all over but I hope that it’ll pick up soon!
Add £150 of Amazon vouchers to my account. Achieved. I used lots of my vouchers to treat people for random acts of kindness. I’m in a fairly new group on Facebook where everyone shares their Amazon wish list (here’s mine) and then other people buy them surprise gifts. It’s so nice! I’m loving it and have added a small budget to my monthly budget for spending on strangers. I mostly lurk in the group and don’t post much, but I enjoy seeing how happy everyone is when they receive a gift!
Spend £150 or less on groceries. Failed. We had 2 weeks without Hello Fresh so it was nearer to £300! Speaking of Hello Fresh – *get £20 off your first order!
Add £30 to my round-up pot. Achieved. I put away almost £100 by rounding my bank account to the nearest £5 every couple of days.
Online aims for April 2020 – the results
Update 10 old posts. Achieved. I’ve updated lots of my old favourite recipes including slow cooker roast beef and slow cooker pulled pork. Also, I gave my 40 great ideas for your Yumbox an update too!
Complete 2 random acts of kindness. Achieved. As mentioned above I’ve been loving buying people little gifts from their Amazon wishlist.
Personal aims for April 2020 – the results
Walk 7k steps every single day. Achieved. I hit an average of around 8,000. As I had a couple of high pain days near the end of the month I feel this went really well!
Read 2 books. Failed. I read one book in full, so 1/2 isn’t bad I guess!
There you have it, my April 2020 aims results! I think overall I did well considering what I have going on at the moment. Like everyone really. I hope you’re staying safe and doing well.
