August Goals: Revisited

Since September is now upon us, I thought I would take this Labor Day holiday to revisit my goals from August to see how I did.

Weaving & Weather Goals

Work 5 (relatively) full days during the week.  I might have accomplished this one in a round about sort of way, but I did indeed work at least 5 days a week. Most weeks, I did not go 1 day without doing a little work here and there. For instance, maybe instead of 5 full days, I worked 4 full days and 3 half days. Overall, I am happy with the amount of time I spent working this month. 

Finish and list 10 scarves by the end of August. I did finish and list 10 scarves in August, however, 2 of those scarves were custom orders and were not open for public purchasing. 

Start developing new product ideas for the shop (this may prove to be a long work in progress, but stay tuned). This goal went a little untouched this month, I am sorry to say. But I plan to work on it more in September.

Write 2 blog posts about the weaving process or finished products. I did write two blog post that focused on aspects of my business. If you missed them, you can find them here and here

Over all, I am very happy with the business goals that I accomplished this past month! And to top it all off, I sold 6 scarves this month! 

Now on to the personal goals.

Personal Goals

Run/exercise 5 days a week. It is often hard for me to stay motivated to workout during the week. Especially since it has been rainy with cooler temperatures here in Germany for the past few weeks. I would rather just stay in bed in the morning, than get up and get moving. I am happy to say, that I can cross this on off though! Most weeks, I actually exercised 6 days (one week, I slacked and only exercised 4 days, but I am saying that the extra days on the other weeks make up for that).

Study German Language for 1 hour each day (In addition to class time – I start German II in a couple of weeks!). I unfortunately didn’t do very well on this one. I studied almost everyday for 1 week. Then I started my German II class which meets 4 days a week and after having a good amount of it in the classroom, I didn’t look at my book too much outside of class. I need to work harder on this one in September if I really want to learn the language – which I do! 

Finish current book series (I’m on book 6 of 7 – I think – of the Outlander Series). I also did not complete this goal. I did however finish the book that I was on, and started the final book of the series. (Which I was wrong about in my earlier post, there are 8 books, and I was on 7 of 8.)

Try a new recipe at least once a week. And I did try a new recipe at least once a week, if not more. My intention was going to be to write posts about my experiences with the new recipes, but that is something that I didn’t get around to doing. (And I can never remember to take pictures of my food… And it never looks as pretty as food bloggers make it look anyways, so I really should just leave it to them!)


So that’s it for my August goals evaluation. I may or may not work out some September goals to share. Or I might just work on my unreached goals from August. Either way, thanks for allowing me to share my goals with you to try to keep myself motivated and in check!
