Insane Goals for June – May Review

It’s time to review my goals that I made for May.  May has been a major busy month for me with lots of changes.

Major Fail area


  1. I STILL yet to plan for our upcoming trip and we are leaving next week!!
  2. There are still many areas in the house which are yet to be de-cluttered and the holidays are already here.
  3. I didn’t get around to completing the books which I have to read for the month and they have be completed in June. The good thing is that I did manage to finish reading and reviewing three books.
  4. I still  need to exercise more regularly but haven’t been getting around to doing so.

What I accomplished in May

  1. I have increased my fan base to more then 4500 fans on facebook and 3350 twitter fans.
  2. Completed the last photobook before the voucher expired. I now have all photos done up till March 2012.
  3. Went for my first blogger business luncheon as I’ve managed to get some corporate sponsors for the blog.
  4. Hosted my first carnival – The May Billingual carnival on the blog.
  5. Started teaching Tiger girl using the flashcards which I have on hand.
  6. Got to know many new bloggers and build up my network.
  7. Have managed to lose 1.5kg and now am 5 kg away from target weight.


Here is are my goals for 2012

I’m determined to get my weight down to 55kg by the time Tiger girl turns 2 in Sept. ( It’s currently down to 62/63kg)

My routine would be

  • Stair climbing (x2) 5 times a week
    Zumba WII/IWII Active or other interactive sports games.
  • Increase intake of fruits and water.
  • Cook more healthy foods
