Ahh that word...something I seem to be seriously lacking lately. You'd think that with the weather finally picking up I'd be in a better mood but I just can't seem to put my finger on why I'm lacking motivation recently.

I've decided to set myself some goals to help see if this keeps my motivation up, this doesn't just include blogging although that's included too as it's a big part of my life.

Reach 1000 Bloglovin followers...I'm so pleased with how my little blog has come along over the last year and a half but I really want to reach that big milestone. I'm still a little way off at the moment and I try not to get bogged down by the numbers - I love that over 700 of you listen to my ramblings on a daily basis and I'm grateful that so many of you leave me lovely comments

Post at least 20 times a month...If I can post at least 20 times a month then I will beat last years post total of 222. Obviously I still want to maintain quality, after all that's what you keep coming back for and I wouldn't post just for the sake of making up numbers but I think setting myself a little monthly goal will keep me on track.

Lose some pounds...recently my weight has started to get me down which I think is one of the key triggers to my lack of motivation. Basically for my height, I'm classed as overweight. I hate clothes shopping because I'm always worried that things won't fit me right. I'm not worried about the size of the clothes, after all, it's just a number. I just don't feel like me.

Keep at my savings goal...At the beginning of the year I joined the 52 week savings challenge (you can read my post about that here). I'm currently on week 10 (I transfer the money on a Sunday so this Sunday will be week 11) and so far I've saved a total of £55. That might not seem like a lot but once I start hitting the big week numbers the total will soon start to stack up (providing I don't dip into it!)

Strike some items off my 30 before 30 list...so far I've only crossed off two items from my list (you can see my list here) and this year will see my 28th birthday. I know I'm still quite a long way off but there are some items on there that would be really easy to cross off if I just got my bum in gear!

I'm sorry if this sounds like a really whiny post! I'm hoping that I can look back on this soon with some positivity :)

How do you keep motivated? Do you sometimes suffer with a lack of motivation? I'd love to hear how you beat it!


  1. These are great goals! I rally need to sort my life out with my spending, I've been awful recently! I've put myself on a ban so the only food I'm allowed to buy is fresh fruit/ veg and milk until I've run down the freezer and cupboards a bit! I think having a good list of things you're trying to achieve is really helpful- I may need to do the same!

  2. I would say that I've been suffering with a lack of motivation up until recently. Mainly with my fitness and healthy eating. Luckily it's starting to come back a bit. : ) Good luck with your goals. X
