April 2024 Goals

Here we go somehow we are already in April. I have to admit that 2024 has been a bit hit and miss for me so far however, I am determined to make April a fantastic month as I re-evaluate where I am at and where I am wanting to push to be come the end of the year. I have decided that April is going to be all about putting building blocks in place to start being consistent in the hopes of it helping me towards those goals, April is also going to be super productive in starting to make progress on jobs that have been hanging around waiting to be completed for far too long. So here is a look at my goals for the month of April... 


Add to the spring wardrobe

My wardrobe is finally starting to change shape and the recent decluttering is really starting to help me out as more and more options that suit the style I am aiming for are being added to my wardrobe. That being said there are a few bits that I could do with adding for spring as a lot of items are starting to lose their shape or are more suited to the colder weather. There won't be loads added to the spring wardrobe though as I am still wanting to limit the purchases I make as I am hoping items wont last me too long due to my weight loss journey. 

Add to the spring footwear rotation

My footwear that I actually wear is all looking worse for wear so the plan is to add some nice new pairs into the rotation for spring. I am hoping to pick up some more white sneakers for the spring weather as these are my go to that go with 99% of my wardrobe. I would also love to pick up some different styles of footwear too that just change things up a bit.

Sort out the accessories I own 

I currently have different accessories dotted in every room of the house however, I think now is the time to get everything in one place or at least in a home of their own. All my hats and scarves need a good declutter and putting in their place in the hallway with my baseball caps going into the spare room. Then my jewellery and sunglasses all need moving into our new wardrobes so they can be grabbed at the same time as outfits are picked out. Having everything in its own home at long last is going to be brilliant.

Sort out my seasonal clothing

Whilst one goal is to add to my spring wardrobe, another one is to actually sort through the spring clothing I already own. I have a black bag at the minute filled with seasonal clothing so the plan is to go through that and dig out all the spring appropriate items whilst putting my more winter suited clothes into storage, which will be being upgraded from a black bag to an actual storage bag.

Declutter the shoes

I still haven't got around to sorting out all the footwear I own but as I am going to need access to move all the home gym equipment out of the house this month I need to make and that space has to be made by moving all the shoes out of the way so what better time to start clearing out. This job should only be an hour or so which means there is really no excuse to not do it.


Start on the home gym build

We have now ordered the building for the home gym and that should arrive early April so fingers crossed by the end of the month that will be close to operational. I honestly don't think it will be fully complete as some equipment will still require being purchased and the electrics will probably still need sorting too. If the building can be up and flooring down with most equipment in though I will be happy as I can start to use it.

Start sorting the back garden out

Now the patio doors are in I am planning on getting through as many jobs as I can. The main one though is getting the back garden in a state which we can use it. I am hoping that in April I can get the decking, fence and furniture jet washed and then clean up the grass area before painting the decking and fence if we have a rare dry day. I would love to fully complete this garden by the end of the month but with us needing some woodwork doing I guess we shall wait and see. It will be an added bonus if I get it sorted so the ice bath can finally be put out and used. 

Declutter the bathroom shelves

The bathroom shelves still haven't been sorted which is driving me mad however, I just haven't had the time to get to do it. There are so many products taking up space though that have either gone off or I am never going to use so it is about time. I started to make space for those products I do actually use.  Once these are done the bathroom is going to look so much better, I really should stop delaying the process.

Have 1 date night (minimum) 

Me and Liam haven't spent as much time together as we would have liked recently so I am making the effort to have at least one night where there is no phones etc and we just enjoy time together, it might be playing games together or even make your own pizza night. It will just be nice to have that time together. 

Deep clean the games room

The games room has become a dumping ground since we started doing different projects around the house however, I really want to get everything that shouldn't be in there out and get some space back. I would love to say that this is so I can start using the games room again however, it will soon be back to a dumping ground as we are hoping to start on the spare room/office in the next month or so. At least if there is space we have somewhere to put everything as that room gets done.


Lose 3.1 kg

3.1 kg is a lot to ask from myself however, I know that I am more than capable of achieving this with a bit of consistency. My start weight for the beginning of April was 103.1 kg so the 3.1 kg loss would take me to the 100 kg mark which is a bit more than I would like to be at by the end of April but would put me in a great start position going into May. It is time to get the food choices back on track. 

Attend 3 lifting sessions

I couldn't attend the first lifting session of the month due to work going on at home however, I am determined to hit every other session throughout the month. I know that these sessions are really going to help me on my weight loss journey so I need to make sure I am committing to those sessions and not skipping them. 

Use the spin bike 3 times a week 

I now have access to the bike at long last so the plan is to actually get some use out of it. If I could just do 30 mins to an hour on this 3 times a week I should see a big difference on my journey and it should also help towards making a difference fitness wise. It is definitely going to help me keep my legs moving again and stop them seizing up so fingers crossed I can stick to this. 

1 Long walk a week

Now this is one I really want to stick to as not only does it benefit me, it also benefits the dog. I am loving it when we manage to get on the longer dog walks so the aim for 1 a week is going to be great and hopefully we can get to different places this time and not just stick to the 1 usual place. The best part is these walks tire the dog out a lot so when we get back we can get on with jobs we have to do. 

Buy new lifting shoes

With me planning on attending more weight lifting classes I want to make sure I am wearing wearing more suitable footwear. My Vans are decent for it however, they are slowly becoming destroyed so it is time for an upgrade. I have had my eyes on a few different pairs so let's see which I end up picked up, all I know is a pair is definitely being added in April. 


Post to the fitness Instagram 3 times a week 

I am determined that April is going to be the month where I put more effort into my fitness page and see a bit of growth so I know that building up a bit of consistency by posting multiple times a week is going to be key, plus if I do the 3 times a week the habit will be there and I can start working towards posting daily once more and hopefully I will end up with some better ideas coming to mind for what to create. 

Start to grow the Tik Tok account

I have started to post on Tik Tok at long last and have a few ideas of other content I want to post on the account so I want to use April to work on those ideas and see things take shape and see the posts start to increase. I actually can't wait to get started on this one so fingers crossed it all goes to plan. 

Post 3 times a week on the Edge of the Area Tik Tok 

The Edge of the Area Tik Tok is the one that I am most active on however, I dropped off with the posts in March. I am determined that in April though I am going to be posting a whole lot more often with a variety of content not just sticker openings. 

Plan out May content for all my accounts 

By the end of April I want to have all May's content mapped out for all my Instagram accounts, websites and Tik Tok accounts. This will just take any guess work out of May and mean I can just get on with creating rather than wondering what to work on next. If I can get some of May's bits created in April that would be even better. 

Be more active on Instagram stories

I have been slacking on Instagram lately, so the plan is to make sure in April I am posting at least one story every day on each account just to show I am still there and haven't forgotten about the account. There are plenty of ideas I could put on the stories so there is no reason to not just pop on and post something quickly. 

So there you have it those are my goals for the month of April. I am really hoping it can be a productive month where in the wrap up I am saying how well everything went. With a lot of time off in April there really is no reason for not getting through a whole lot of these goals. It is time to get the house in order and find homes for everything at long last.
