November goals

2 months until the end of the year! Itโ€™s come round soooooo quickly!! Itโ€™s easy to slip off now, forget Goals and get distracted by Christmas ( ooooo sparkly lights) stay focused.

As always Iโ€™m writing down my goals to commit to them. Once I have done one off of each goal I colour in the number.

These are my goals in numbers:

  1. 15 Gym sessions
  2. Read 2 books
  3. 4 Mask Mondayโ€™s
  4. 2 sober weekends
  5. 8 MAs booked at work
  6. 6 pounds lost
  7. 2 charitable favours
  8. 5 Wednesday Weigh ins
  9. 8 blog posts
  10. 4 room cleans
  11. 15 instructions at work

My overall goals, is to be successful at work, loose weight, up my fitness and make sure my room is tidy and my mind is clear.

On page two, I have written myself reminders of why I wanted to do each goal in the first place. If in doubt I will refer back to my goal.

Of course lot of sticky notes and further planning in my diarys to make sure I reach my goals.

I am so ready for November, lots of exciting things planned for next year and now is the time to start prepare myself mentally and physically for the new year.

I hope you enjoyed this post! And I would love to know what you guys plan to achieve this month!

Positive changes, to help the world ๐ŸŒŽ

I’m always thinking of little way, to make a big difference to other people life’s. It’s a good feeling helping other people, and I’m sure it’s amazing for other people to be on the receiving end!

Coffee stamp cards โ˜•๏ธโ˜•๏ธโ˜•๏ธ

all love a coffee stamp card, 9 coffees later and you can finally have a free one! What a great achievement! It's feels amazing right getting something for nothing! Imagine how amazing it would be to give you free coffee to someone who is homeless, who is freezing from sleeping on the road. Why not give it to someone, who has nothing? You will honestly feel ten times more amazing!

Food Banks๐Ÿช๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿง๐Ÿก๐Ÿฒ๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿฅ˜

โ€ขDon
to your local food bank is a great way to help your local community. There are many ways you can donate, you can donate food that you have in your cupboards. Let’s face it, most of us have tins in our cupboards that have been there FOREVER! Pop them in a bag and drop them to your local food bank.

Buy one get one freeโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ

โ€ขWe al
a buy one get one free! Even if we went for one item, it’s great because we can use the other item when the first one runs out. However, you could always donate to your local food bank or to a hopeless person. They will
defiantl
preciate it!

Clothes clear out๐Ÿ‘š๐Ÿ‘•๐Ÿ‘–๐Ÿ‘”๐Ÿ‘˜

  • Why not sort thought your clothes to declutter your bedroom! Clothes can be donated to local charity shops or again for the homeless. Every time I have a clear out, I donate to different charity shops as I can never decide on which charity is best

Hobbies to fundraising๐Ÿ“šโšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿคผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

  • Fundraising doesn’t have to be difficult, in fact it can be fun! I once did a read-a-thon, I read six books in a week and raise over ยฃ100 for charity! I had the best week of reading and I did it for a great cause. That can be the same with anything from baking to jogging, there’s always room for something.

McDonald’s stickers ๐Ÿคถ๐Ÿผ

  • Every year McDonald’s do monopoly give aways sometimes you win big and sometimes you won food or drink prizes. For the last couple of years, when I have one a meal prize I have given it to a homeless person. Each time they have been so grateful and commented on how thoughtful I was. Defiantly made me feel good.

Spend time with the Elderly ๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿผ

  • The Elderly can get really lonely and look forward to social interaction. There are a few ways in which you can help. There is a charity called St Vincent to Paul, which is charity which involves volunteers visiting elderly people or helping them with small chores like their food shop! There is a club in Brighton called the casserole club. This charity pairs you up with someone Elderly in your area and you can choose to drop them dinner or have dinner with them. I know a few people that are involved with these charity’s and they say that it is so rewarding.

Listsย 

I read a post online today about a girl that LOVES lists! And I am with you honey! 

Writting down your goals is commitment in writting that you are going to do somthing! And once you’ve achieved and ticket of highlighted it.. well what an amazing feeling!

I love a list and today I was writing a list about writing lists.

At the start of every year I usually write down my goals! This year was different because I went traveling my only goals was to see more, so more, eat more and tan more! 

Now that I am back to reality it’s time to get my list on!

So I have written a list on my phone keys things to by a super cute note pad and super cute colour gel pens!

Next I want to write lists of:

I’m hoping to add more to lists To my notepad but the ideas might not come until I choose the notepad!
Lists are great for setting your goals in writting! No going back once they are set!

What do you write lists about? Do you find them helpful? 

Food bank

My Dad is chairman of a Food bank based in Hangleton. Every year I attempt to raise money, at Christmas time to dontate to the charity. 

I head most days from my dad about horrible situations people have been left in that leaves then without enough money to purchase dinner for them and there family. The little things we take for grant age like bread and tea bags are out of reach of people that could live on the same road as us. Food banks in general, are amazing charities that organisations as big as supermarkets and as small as someone clearing out their cupboard can donate too.

The first year I raised money by organising a office cake sale which raise just under ยฃ100. All the Your Move staff got involved by baking there own cakes and mince pies. We invited clients into our office for cake and coffee, as well as visiting all other local offices with the remaining cakes. 


The Christmas just gone, we came up with a new idea. We decided to organise a reverse advent calendar. Instead of opening a chocolate advent calendar, everyday and receive chocolate, we did the opposite. We would open a box that we made, and put something inside. 


Donations ranged from teabags to baby food. I asked my Dad what they needed he most and at the time they really needed baby stuff. Not only did the staff at Your Move donate daily, we had donations from clients, friends and contractors. Our Valuation Managers mother dontates ยฃ25, and with that we went and bought lots of baby food, baby wipes, dummies.  

The box was collected a few days before Christmas and we were overwhelmed with the amount of stuff that was collected. It was so rewarding donating that amount of stuff just before Christmas. Knowing that we made a difference to lots of families, so refreshing. 


I will continue to raise money for food banks, as I feel so passionate about what they do for local community’s. 

If you are looking for a New Years resolution this year, I challenge you to speak to your local food bank and see what you can do to help because I guarantee you it will be rewarding.

Macmillian Chairty Day

Sunday 1st May; I attended a all day chairty event at Shoreham FC. 

As you enter you buy raffle tickets kind of like your entry. Shortly after was a chairty football match, both teams where a mixture of ages. I don’t know a lot about football so I can’t tell you much, but the white shirt team won. 

Afterwards was the raffle and I won Buck’s Fizz and a Argon oil shampoo kit. 


My boyfriend shaved his hair off for chairty, which raised an additional ยฃ187. They paid an extra ยฃ80 for him to keep the side part on for two days ( it’s off now phew)


Then it was time for the disco and drinks which lasted into the late evening. 


Overall was a great day for a great cause and they raised over ยฃ1000.
