I shared all of my goals and resolutions at the end of 2014 and with 2015 half over now is the perfect time to see how I'm doing!
Personal GoalsHealthier Me
I had lots of ideas for this that had kind of worked in the past, and then I found Fit Girls Guide. Now, I've only done this for 1.5 months and that isn't long but I'm enjoying the stuff I'm eating AND seeing progress. My exercise definitely needs work, and I have 6 months to work on that!!
Read 125 Books
I'm at 81 of 125, so I'm past the halfway mark!!!

Live By Myself
I did it! I moved out and am living on my own. There have been a few tears, but mostly just enjoying the solitude and responsibility that comes with making my own decisions completely. Enjoy? That may be too strong of a word.
I'm pretty confident that I've been and will keep rocking my personal goals. It's the business and blog goals that I'm thinking need re-working.
I originally had specific goals that just didn't fit in with where I was blogging and business wise. Getting sick, moving, feeling like you're in a holding pattern really hindered and made me re-evaluate these goals.
Post one DIY or recipe each month.
I always have intentions of doing this but these take so much work, preparation and time! Kudos to the food bloggers that ONLY blog about that because it's so much easier for me to tell you what I did last season or what I read than make something and remember to take pics of every step!
Post one video (makeup, haul, books, any ideas, etc.) a month.
Yeah, when my life (and place of dwelling) is kind of a mess it's hard to do things like sit down and record a video. I stopped all of my subscriptions to save some $$$ and I didn't have internet for about a month so I couldn't watch any inspiring Youtube videos, blah! This is still a goal, but I'm not making any promises!
Sponsor one blog a month.
I actually had a sponsor spot booked MONTHS in advance and by the time it came around I wasn't in the right place to take advantage of it. I swapped with Julia recently and am still open to swaps if you're interested, but feel like I need to get back in my groove before I do some more swapping or sponsoring.
Business GoalsBring on at least one new client.
I still have five months for this to happen, although I ended up doing some side work for my full time job. *taps chin* I could count that if I need to since I got paid and I'd never done anything like that for them before.
Finish my business site.
Yeah, this goes along with re-designing my blog and I just need to feel motivated I think. I still have time to do this. That's one of the great things about a long time to do something you can do it whenever as long as it's done by the time you set for yourself!
How are you doing on your goals for 2015?
