My Summer Holiday to do List

Summer

My (very own) Summer Holiday List

The School Summer Holidays are nearly upon us.  I am lucky to work term-time.  Two of my kids are in their early teens so whilst I try and get them to do stuff with me 90% of the time they’ve made other arrangements! Normally I tend just to worry about how I’m going to get through the 6 weeks that the kids are off school but now as they are slightly older they don’t need me as much to entertain them.  But I tend to forget that it’s my holiday time to, my school-run free time, my own break from the routine.  So this year, whilst as normal I will plan the usual stuff for my kids I’m going to make a conscious effort to use this time to accomplish some of the things I’ve been wanting to do but keep putting off because other priorities take over.

One thing blogging has taught me is a good starting point is to write things down, set some goals; what do I want to accomplish and then I’ve got something to focus on achieving.  So here goes!  Note to self; cleaning out the kitchen cupboards or painting my son’s bedroom is not on my Summer Holiday to do list. This is purely an all about me list!  My getting my stuff done list!

Setting Goals helps you get things done, listing your own personal goals should be no exception. Click To Tweet

So I’m aiming to:

 

Attend at least one Metafit Class a week at my local Gym

 

Make the most of being  free of the light mornings and put in some early morning runs

 

Revisit and maybe rehash some of my Gym programmes; use this as an opportunity to revaluate my fitness goals

 

Revamp the graphics on this blog and carry out some blog maintenance such as updating older blog posts

 

Look to maybe change my WordPress Theme; still not 100% sure about the look of my blog so it’ll be good to see what’s available

 

Brush up on my photography skills.  I read a fab blog called 16 Photography Projects by LaShawn at Everyday Eyecandy and it’s inspired me not only for my blog but because I hardly take any photos anymore.

 

Have a go at making Raspberry Gin

 

Do some baking with my daughter; we’ve been adding loads of fab recipes to our Pinterest Boards in preparation for this already!  She’s the cook, I am Kitchen Porter and Chief Taster.

Past summer holidays I’ve spent most of it entertaining my kids and wishing the rainy days away.  This time I hope to get something out of this time off myself.   Yes this list is all about me, but I think we are all a little guilty of neglecting our own personal goals and needs, so maybe it is time for to readdress the imbalance a little.  I suppose writing it down is a starting point!

What do you think?  When you have downtime do you sit and chill or aim to get stuff done?

About busyfitmama

Busy working mum to 3 children. My passion is keeping fit and eating healthy. By adopting a healthy, active lifestyle I hope to be a positive role model to my children particularly my daughter. On the road to getting fit and staying fit I've had to overcome barriers such as body confidence issues and lack of time! I'm no expert nor claim to be but the steps I've taken have worked for me and continues to do so. Although my blog is a diary of my fitness I would love it to inspire other women to take up fitness and adopt a healthier, active lifestyle. Thank you!
