It is a bit of a different week this week. Not only is it school holiday time but I am also off work. We don’t have anything planned as it is the last big push on revision. The next two weeks of school will see the end of the GCSEs. Find out what else happened this week in Random Blog Post 5.
Goals for LAST week
These were my goals for last week.
- Work on new gig
- Upload new gig to Fiverr
- Work on new website
Wow, I managed to achieve all my goals although for some reason I felt like I hadn't achieved much at all.
Weight Loss Challenge
I also decided this week that I would be trying to lose a stone in weight. This is the stone that I have put on over the last few months. I wrote this blog post about my reasons why. I am also documenting the journey on Instagram if you would like to follow along.
Last night, the first night of the weight loss journey and we decided to go out for a meal. Not exactly the smartest thing to do, however, it was Husband’s birthday last week and we had planned to celebrate it this week when we were off work. I am quite impressed with myself, although I did eat more than I would have if I had eaten at home, I did resist dessert. I am not sure how, but I did!
Last week’s trip to the Dentist saw our youngest son being recommended for referral to an Orthodontist. The Dentist sent us back to reception where we could view a list of local Orthodontists. We could choose one and then they would refer him. Sounds simple right?
When we got to the reception, we were told that the only Orthodontist that was taking on new NHS patients was 16 miles away! So annoying when you have one that is literally within walking distance of home. There are also no other ways of getting to this one other than driving, without having to get a bus from home into the City Centre and out again. It would take around 2 hours to get there this way. Our options were to be referred to this one or go private. I have no idea how much the private treatment would be but I know you are looking over £1000.
I did manage to get another Fiverr job, which is adding to the money making. I am planning a 6 Month Side Hustle Income Report soon. It won’t show an awful lot, but it will be more than if I hadn’t done anything.
The New Website
A little work has taken place this week. I managed to set up Yoast and create another package to add to the Products page. Little and often will get it there eventually.
I have spent all my spare time this week trying to get ahead on blog posts. I really want to get June, July and August written, which will then allow me time to focus on some of my other projects which I hope to launch soon. Things are being worked on in the background here and there, but I really need to free up some blocks of time to get more done.
Goals for the week
- Work on more blog posts to enable me to get ahead.
- Work on another gig - this one will take a bit longer so may stay in my goals for a while
- Lose 2 pounds in weight - this is how much I need to lose each week to achieve my target weight before my holiday.
- Chill out - I am on holiday after all!
