July Goals Recap/ August Goals

July Goals
  • No direct heat (with exception of the time I used it 7/2/13) Success!
  • Steam hair for at least 30 minutes using homemade steam method. Fail
  • Do set of medium two strand twists Fail. I relaxed my hair so this is why I didn't complete this goal. 
  • Do braidout. Success!
  • Make homemade shea butter. Fail
  • M&S every other day and as needed Fail! I'm terrible at this. 
  • Use castor oil on scalp and edges every other day and as needed. Fail. Again something I'm terrible at.
  • Return to weekly or biweekly wash days. Success!
  • Start back working out at least 3 times a week. Fail! I have an accountability partner who will be helping me keep this goal starting this week 8/4/13.
I'm getting terrible at keeping my goals. I realized that this is largely due to the fact that I forget the goals I've made until I'm recapping at the end of the month. I plan to keep a copy of my goals on my bathroom mirror and cross them off as I complete them. To reach my goal of M&Sing and Oiling my scalp, I plan to keep a calendar on my mirror. I sure hope this helps.

Here are my goals for August
  • No Direct Heat
  • M&S every day
  • Oil Scalp 3 times per week
  • Workout 3x per week
  • Saran roller wrap
What do you do to make sure you meet your monthly goals? Comments and suggestions are appreciated!


  1. I'm also horrible at oiling my edges consistently, and some of my other goals. This month I'm going to post my goals on my bathroom wall, so I can keep up with them.

  2. I agreed with remembering what goals you have set. I think maybe weekly recaps or putting them on bathroom mirror as you have said! I have put them on a separate tab on my blog so that I constantly look at them!

    Good luck with your August goals!

  3. I set yearly goals and then check in every quarter. I'm lucky that I can remember to do that much! Ha-ha!
