You Win Some, You Lose Some: June Results

Drum roll please, it is now time for my June Goals results.

Lose 5 Pounds. I feel like this has been my monthly goal since I was 13, but I have a feeling it could really happen this month. I started back on an extremely low carb, no sugar diet after Memorial Day and if I can just keep plugging along on that it should be easy to drop 5 lbs.

Result: Who knows. I can say with almost 99% certainty that this didn't happen, but I haven't been on a scale since I wrote that goal. My clothes still fit like they did, so that probably means I didn't gain weight, but I probably didn't lose that 5. (Sorta) FAIL.

Log 120 miles on my FitBit. We all know how much I love my FitBit, but due to this low carb diet I'm not really supposed to be doing a TON of working out. So I have just been doing some walking and whatnot. But I need to amp that up so that's where little this goal came from. 

Result: Nope. I mean, unless I can somehow manage to walk/run 32 miles today, which is not happening. So 88 miles was what I hit this month. Still not horrible, but not my goal. FAIL.

Pick out & order out STDs (Save the Date's). Let's just talk about how I love calling them STDs. I'm so immature, I know. But anyways, I We need to make a decision on which photo we want to use and then which design we like best and then finally ORDER them. I want to send them out by August 1, so ordering them by the end of the month would be ideal because then will come the task of having to finalize the guest list - something we have kinda sorta been putting off.

 Result: Did it!! They are currently sitting on my kitchen table ready to have postage put on them & sent out. WIN.

Host a cookout/gathering for three different groups of friends. So I'm not really sure when this happened, but Tony and I have been sort of popular lately. *insert laughing here because we're really not that popular at all* But we have three distinct "groups" of friends that have always had us over, and now it's time for us to return the gesture. Fire up that grill!

 Result: Completed. This month felt like it literally flew by due to all of the things we had going on. We had people over a lot and it was so much fun cooking out, making s'mores, drinking & playing in the pool :)

Get some tan lines. While most people hate them, I love having a tan line. Therefore, it's my goal to have a visible tan line by the end of June.

 Result: I'll let these photos tell you the answer....

Pay off my Old Navy credit card. I seriously should have never gotten one of these things. It's from Old Navy, but you can use it like a regular credit card, and I have just been charging little things left and right and it's adding up. So by the end of this month I want that thing down to ZERO. 

 Result: Sorry I am sure a failure. Obviously this one is not a win. In fact, I still have about $140 left to pay off. But I didn't put anything new on the card this month, so that's good, right?

Decorate my office/cube. I have been with my new job for almost a month now and still have NO pictures and decorations. I need to add some "Ashleigh" to the space - aka lots of pictures of me and my friends/Tony having amazing times, duh. Oh, and a picture of my Mom is a must, too!

 Result: Not quite. Our office is undergoing a lot of renovations, so I am holding off on decorating until we are in our final spot!

No wine until my birthday. This one is going to be SO hard. But it's only 20 days without wine (I love how I made that sound easy). I would say I'd go the whole month, but not having wine on my birthday would be a sin. 

 Result: What a joke. Not even close. I broke around June 18 and there was no turning back. 

Picture collage in the living room. I have had this little project on my list since I moved in (2 years ago...) so now that we have lots of pretty pictures, and Tony's fear of putting holes in the wall has subsided a little, we are crossing this baby off the list! 

 Result: Kind of finished. Except instead of doing photos in the living room, we did this in the bedroom. And I am really happy about it.

Orioles games. I really love going down to Baltimore for Orioles games, so I want to try to at least get to one game per month this summer. Already did one in May, so now it's time for one in June. Let's go O's!

 Result: Again, not quite. Didn't make it to Baltimore, but my dad and I did get to a York Revolution game (not a major league game, but still really fun!) And I am going to an O's game in July, so there's that. 

All in all it was an okay month goal wise. I had a great time with everything else -- I just wasn't really that good with meeting all the goals I set for myself. We shall see what July brings!
