Going back to work this week was hard. What I enjoy most about time off work is not having to worry about what time it is. You can get up when you want, go to bed when you want, eat when you want and get LOADS of blogging and side hustling done.
Goals for LAST week
These were my goals for last 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!
A 50% achievement this week.
I completed my first week of my weight loss challenge on Monday. I weighed myself and had lost 1/2 lb. Not brilliant, but still a move in the right direction. I wrote this blog post about why I want to lose this weight and remember you can join me or follow me over on Instagram.
As I was off work, my eating patterns were slightly different - I think I actually eat less when I am not at work. However, I wasn't cycling every day either. It will be interesting to see what happens when I weigh myself next Monday.
I was really pleased to be able to spend some time writing blog posts which I have now scheduled for the next couple of weeks. This is the first time since I started this blog that I have managed to get ahead with this. I will now be able to spend some much needed time on my side hustles.
I got one more Fiverr job last week. I have had nothing since, sadly. Hopefully more will come through soon. I did also add another 'Gig' to my profile but not the one I had planned for the week (hence the reason why goal number 2 above is red).
The New Website (Side Hustle No. 2)
Again, only a small amount of work has taken place. Now I have got ahead with some blog posts, I will be spending more time on this and another side hustle (No. 4) that I started whilst I was off last week.
Not me, but my youngest. He has wanted to start a YouTube channel for ages but I had always discouraged him due to the time that would be involved. As he was off school for a week and because his brother was tied up revising, I decided he could have a go. We spent some time together testing out the different apps and functions on the xBox to allow this and off he went. I think he has uploaded about 12 videos so far and he roped in me to create his thumbnails! It was a good job I was off work!
Goals for the week
I need to carry two goals over from last week. Again, I don't think I will finish the gig I have planned, but I would at least like to make some progress.
- Work on another Gig
- I would really love to lose my target of 2lbs this week.
- Add regular content into side hustle number 4
- Finish of price list for package 1 for side hustle number 2
Sorry for all the 'cloak and dagger' but I don't want to release any details until they are ready to go. Have a great week.
