Halfway through the year, wow! June seems to have flown by, probably because I’ve been busy at home, and so it is time to share with you how I did with my aims for June 2020. Here are my aims for June 2020 – the results!
Aims for June 2020 – the results
Home aims for June 2020 – the results
Meal plan all month. Achieved. We have had a lot of *Hello Fresh meals and *Simply Cook dinners, and loved pretty much all of them. This has made meal planning really simple, and I’m so grateful we’ve been able to do this during a busy time.
Try 2 new recipes. Achieved. I’ve been practicing some old recipes, which are so old they may as well be new, and then I’ve been using my air fryer lots more.
Use my *breadmaker at least 2 times for new recipes. Achieved. I have been able to get flour and yeast pretty freely this month, for the first time since February, which is great. I’m not sure if stocks have been increased, or people have just slowed down on the purchasing, but I’m glad either way!
Use my *pressure cooker for 3 hot lunches, soups etc. I made a soup, lots of pasta dishes and just enjoyed eating healthier lunches instead of snacking.
Complete TeamTomm each day in June. Achieved. I absolutely love TeamTomm. I had 4 or 5 days where I had to REALLY motivate myself to do it, but each time I felt great at the end to see another clean room in my home.
Financial aims for June 2020 – the results
Make money matched betting. Achieved. I wanted to make £200+ and I achieved this. I think I had maybe 2 or 3 months where money was REALLY down, but things seem to be picking up sports wise now.
Add £100 of Amazon vouchers to my account. Failed. I cashed out my vouchers quite late in the month and so some survey companies haven’t actually sent me the vouchers yet, and a couple are over their quoted delivery times. I’ll wait patiently though, as I know it is a tough time at the moment!
Make £50 from Prolific. Achieved. I used this towards paying back my savings for the new MacBook I purchased this month.
Spend £150 or less on groceries. Failed. By about £100. Whoops! Shopping is really expensive, but also I replaced a couple of bottles of alcohol, at a cost of around £50. I don’t drink frequently so mostly a 1L bottle of spirit will last me most of the year, even if I’m sharing with others.
Add £75 to my round-up pot. Achieved. This pot funds a few smaller pots, such as Christmas 2020, and a frivolous things fund, which I have raided this month to update to the Apple Watch series 5.
Online aims for June 2020 – the results
Hit 9k on Instagram! Failed. 430 away ha. Nevermind hey! I have followers who engage with me, and I really enjoy chatting there, so I’m ok with growth slowing again.
Update 10 posts. Achieved. I’ve got so many ‘behind the scenes’ jobs going on atm, which means I’ve had to slow down the SEO work, but I’m feeling good about achieving a little bit of everything every day, week or month at the moment.
Complete 5 random acts of kindness. Achieved. I use this as a way to lift my own mood, and often carry out these acts anonymously. This month I used a gifting group on Facebook, searched for wish lists on Twitter and then looking out for ways I could treat people I love too, without it being about me.
Personal aims for June 2020 – the results
Walk an average of 7,500 steps per day. Achieved. I had a couple of days where my watch wouldn’t charge, and thus I couldn’t track my steps, but I’m pleased with how well I’ve done this month.
Read 2 books. Achieved. I’m trying to read books about Black history, self improvement and from Black authors. I’ve already got my next book lined up and have been scheduling in time to read a couple of times a week, as I really enjoy the downtime.
Sort our November holiday activities. Failed. They’re not on sale yet! I wanted to get Father Christmas booked for Daisy, but according to the Centerparcs website I’ll get a notification when they go on sale, so I’ll stop worrying about it for now.
There you have it! My June 2020 aims results! I feel that the month has gone well. Mentally I’m feeling really strong, happy and just enjoying my life more than ever. My home feels like a safety blanket for my family and so, despite being allowed out, we’re still spending most of our time here. It’s so nice to have a garden and I’m really grateful. I hope you’re keeping safe, and taking care of your mental health, during this time.
