My Goals This Spring/Summer

I cannot explain how happy I am now it's getting warmer and the sun is coming out! This summer is a big one for my fiancée, Nathan, and I (any guesses what's happening?!), and now that it's April it just means we're another step closer to one of the biggest days of our lives.

Although this is going to be one of the happiest years of our lives, it does also mean it's going to be one of the most stressful and busiest. This, I know, I will struggle to handle, but with the help of Nathan and my family, I'm sure I'll be able to stay calm. To try and overcome this busy time, I thought I'd create a list of my goals this Spring/Summer to help towards this crazy period in our lives. Some being tasks I've been needing to do for a while, but some our just ways to relax myself (as I can be a very anxious person!).

1. Actually get fitter: I'm sure most of you know that I've been losing weight this past winter. I'm about 12lbs away from my target weight, but this, unfortunately, hasn't magically made me fitter - which I think I was truly hoping it would!

2. Reach my target weight: As well as getting fitter, I would love to reach my target weight this Spring too. Both Nathan and I are members of Slimming World, and we both aim to have reached, or be close to, our target weights by the end of Spring/start of Summer. Nathan's suit fitting is the middle of June, and my final dress fitting is the start of July, so in my head I still feel like we've got ages, but this will soon creep up on us!

3. Read more: I love to read, but I never give myself enough time to do so. Nathan is a big reader, so we're planning to get into a routine of before sleeping, to sit up in bed and read. Hopefully this will relax me more before sleeping, as recently I've had massive problems with trying to get to sleep.

4. Completely unpack: So we moved more than a month ago now, and we still haven't unpacked properly yet! More and more boxes just seem to appear so we're getting a bit bored of it all. I have this week off work so I plan to blitz through it.

5. Catch up with friends and family: This I don't feel like I do enough. I live too far away from everyone to be able to pop over for a catch up and a cup of tea, so I'd love to plan a few days out and have a good old catch up.

6. Get a new wardrobe of clothes: I've been living in black the past 5 months, but this is mainly due to no other clothes fitting me because of my change of weight. Money has been rather tight recently too hence why I've not bought more either. I need more bright colours in my life!

7. Continue my studies: I've actually planned the next 4 years of my life, and I've said this so many times, but I am now back into studying. I've enrolled onto two home A levels, and I'm sitting the exams in June 2016, to then plan to start a degree in the September after, this is as long as Nathan and I can afford me to do this. I'll write a post about these home studies and my plan soon.

8. Complete the last finishing touches for our wedding: Have I mentioned I'm getting married this year?! Everything seems to be going to plan, but now it's time for the last finishing touches, like the decorations, finalising the food etc. It's getting real now!

9. Enjoy the sunshine: Whilst 'trying' to attempt to complete all of the above, I've got to remember to enjoy the sun! I've always missed out on the sun as I'm usually working or in my little fort on the sofa. This year however I'm much more confident with my body so I want to go out and have fun in the sun!

What are your plans this Spring and Summer? Got any big events coming up this year? Let me know in the comments! 

Ta-ta for now!
