June Goals

It's gonna be Juuuuuune! That just doesn't have the same ring to it, does it?

My May goals were :
  • officially put in my notice at work
  • find a place to live
  • start packing!
  • buy new bath towels
  • take a trip to IKEA
  • order checks from my bank
  • save up $7,000 by June 1st.
  • celebrate our ONE YEAR <3
  • finish Jillian's 30 day shred
  • keep up with no fast food! 
I put in my notice the very first day of May, so I got that out of the way quick! My boss was totally understanding and supportive. We lucked out on the place to live. My best friend's brother is moving back to our hometown, so Jarad and I are just taking his room! Eventually we want to find a bigger place, but for now, we aren't homeless! Packing is easy peasy. I'm leaving a lot of stuff at my Dad's since we don't really know what our living situation will be like in the near future. Storage is also limited at the place we will move into first.

I don't know why bath towels were such a big deal to me. I guess it's just the grown up thing to do. Moving out? Buy your own bath towels! Target was having a sale and my dad bought us a couple. Does that count as grown up?  Our IKEA trip was super successful. We got everything we needed for $390.

I ordered checks! Disney checks. Ariel, Lilo and Stich, The Lion King, and Mickey and Friends. I only bought them for Ariel. Let's be real.

I reached my goal of $7,000! Between my recent sponsored posts, my last pay check, and my left over time off being cashed out, I'm at about $7,500! What what! These past two months have been tough with budgeting because I've been having to actually spend money! Lol! Our one year anniversary was May 8th. We celebrated by going to our favorite Mexican restaurant. We kept it low key since we have so much going on the next couple weeks. Oh! And J sent me the prettiest tulips to work. <3

Oh Jillian. She kicks my butt. The fact that she talks crap to you the whole video really helps me out. I didn't do 30 days solid of Jillian. I mixed it up between Jillian, the Tone It Up Girls, and Casey from Blogilates - but I was active at least 30 minutes a day. I completed the 1800 minute challenge with more than 1800 minutes! Can that count?

Fast food? What's that? I've been fast food free for 78 days! I'm really impressed with myself.

  • do a tour of our new room!
  • do some form of exercise every day
  • enjoy the heck out of our vacation
  • post more recipes
  • get outside! time to take advantage of my new surroundings
  • get out of my comfort zone/stop being a scaredy cat 
  • start job hunting/find a job 
  • get financial aid sorted out 
Today is our first official day in Monterey! Eeeeek! I can't wait to see what life is going to be like here. 

What are your goals for June? 


  1. great goals! and congratulations on achieving your May ones!

  2. Congrats! I definitely need to workout more. A full time job is so time consuming! Happy anniversary. Can't go wrong with Mexican food. :] // ☼

  3. Those are great goals! I too am striving to be active every day, even it's just a walk or dance party with my three year old. :D
