June 2016 Goals

June 2016 Goals

I promised myself this month I wouldn’t comment on “how fast the month went by” but boy did it! So much has changed in just a month time and I’ve made some bid decisions about where I’m going with my life, blog, business and career. Let’s just say it was a long time coming. I won’t get into the details now, we will cover that in the June goals section. So lets just see how I did in the month of May.

May Goals

Personal Goals

  • Finish reading Girl Boss.

No. No. No. I really failed at this lol I need to get back into at least a chapter a night. I’ve been prepping so hard for launching m e-course that I have been working late and writing on my lunch breaks which are typically my time for reading.

  • Get the estimate for the hail damage on my car.

I did and boy, do I not want to talk about it. I won’t say the expected cost but I will say I have to get my roof, hood and trunk totally replaced! Stupid hail! 

  • Build a specific budget.

Recently my pay schedule has changed so this made me have no choice but to get m budget together. I also figured out how much I can spend to launch my e-course (launching June 14th!). It’s a free course so this is really just a small investment in my overall brand.

Blog and Freelance Goals

  • Have 305 Facebook page likes

367! I know for  a lot of bloggers that is small potatoes but I am so happy. One really big thing I did was post on my personal Facebook to make sure my friends knew about it. I’m so happy!

  • Have 1625 Twitter Followers

1,766 I really surpassed this goal and couldn’t be happier. Thanks in part to consistent relevant posts and twitter chats.

  • Have 475 Instagram Followers

540! I can’t believe I broke 500. I think this is in big part to The Blogger Life Instagram challenge I participated in this month. I didn’t participate every day but I tried to do it often as well as posting more and trying new hashtags.

  • Have 500 Pinterest Followers

511. Another win. Hopefully, I can keep pushing this up.

  • Increase my email list by 10 people

I am so excited that I hit this goal! I did lose one subscriber but 10 to 1 is a good balance in my opinion. 

  • Create at least one new Resource for my Resource Library

I was on hustle this month an actually added more than one!

  • Post twice a week.


  • Publish 2 posts on other sites.

Done!  You can check them out here:

Why fans still aren’t over McDreamy one year later on SheKnows Media 

  • Finish at least one project. Preferably my Instagram challenge or my e-course and be able to roll it out in June.

I didn’t finish my product but my e-course will be out June 14! I’ll be sharing more details about that next week! 

  • Spend at least 10 minutes a day engaging on each of the above social media sites. That means repinning, responding to tweets of others or seeing what their links are, etc.

As you can tell from my numbers I had a really good month on social media and part of it was not just scheduling but interacting.

Health and Fitness

  • Walk 6,500 steps a day

I didn’t do this everyday at all :/ I hit my walking goal just 8 times in May. The sad thing looking at it now was I was like 1,000 steps or less away most days. Its hard to walk around when your working on a mini-launch plan to get those steps in. 

  • Track all my meals

I actually hit my 90 day streak on my fitness pal at the end of the month!

  • Stick to stage one of the South Beach diet Monday- Wednesday.

I’ve been a little cash poor this month with things going on so while I didn’t stick to this I did make most of my meals at home. Which normally means fish grilled kale and some other veggie! 

  • Finally, sign up for my free membership at the Y and try to go to one glass a week.

Decided against the Y membership for certain reasons I can’t discuss…yet.

I have so many things on my mind right now. I can’t believe that the launch is creeping up so quickly. I was just on Skype with my fellow blogger friend Brittany less than a month ago deciding which day I planned to launch the e-course and now.

What are your goals for the month? Share below.


  1. Stephanie

    Way to go on achieving so much in May. I love making goals and knocking them out month after month. Good luck in June!

  2. kerona

    its nice that you reached your goals congrats!!!

  3. Jenny

    Yay so excited for you Dia! I want to launch a paid e-course this year after I launch a free email course so I really need to get to working on that ASAP. Good luck with your June goals – I am sure you’ll rock them.

    xoxo, Jenny

  4. Melissa Chee

    I love reading about your goals! I didn’t love Girl Boss, but I definitely appreciated parts. 🙂

  5. Bree Hogan

    What a mad month in May you had Dia – you really kicked butt on your goals! Girl Boss is an awesome book – but I’m pretty sure I don’t need to tell you that! – so I’d definitely encourage you to cross that one off your list in June. Good luck!

  6. Cori

    Girl get back to reading! You need to rest that brain! You’ll thank yourself later.

  7. Danielle Greco

    Awesome job last month!! I am reading Girl Boss too and am really needing to step my game up haha ! It’s a great book so one chapter a night shouldn’t be hard but I keep failing at that too. Congrats of your social media goals and email subscribers!!!! Great job!

  8. Chelsea

    I JUST ordered GirlBoss and I’m so excited to start reading it!!!

  9. Mandi

    Congrats for all the blog number wins! Thats fantastic and good luck with your ecourse!! The mini vacay with family sounds lovely. I’d love to do that too

  10. Carol Cassara

    I love how you clearly define all of your goals. I do it mostly, but I could get so much more accomplished if I tried.

  11. candy

    Congrats on your 500 pinterest followers, I know I am one of them.

  12. Carol Trimmer

    Wow – I love how you hold yourself accountable. Will set June goals today! Thanks for the inspiration!

  13. Klauss

    Please, tell me, how much time is spent on writing one post, like this for example? Including the time to publish across all of your platform and SM.

  14. Sophia

    These are great goals to have in all areas of you life. Especially the 6k steps a day!

  15. Courtney Pies

    Congratulations on your successes last month! And do not be down on yourself for not reaching every goal. I wish you much success in June!

  16. Carol Cassara

    It looks like you crushed most of your goals. I’m trying to build my social media following up as well and it takes so much work, but well worth it in the end.

  17. Dia

    It really depends on the type of post I’m writing. A lot of my posts are written overtime from an idea and random notes here or there. Others I just sit down and it all comes out at once. I can’t really gauge a time frame. For a post like goals its not that time consuming because I am very focused on reaching certain goals and this is just a check in.

  18. Dia

    Thanks Sophia 🙂

  19. Annie

    I love these type of posts and how you keep track of all your goals each month! I need to make a list of my goals.

  20. Mimi Rose

    Great goals, Dia! I’ve been loving following your monthly goals + blog updates on here, so inspiring! Girl Boss is a great read, definitely worth finishing. 🙂

  21. Dia

    Thanks Courtney. I know I’ve made some great process my only thing that really makes me feel bad is not finishing a book for the simple fact this is totally doable if I really made an effort.

  22. Dia

    Awe thanks Mimi! 🙂

  23. Dia

    You should it keeps me in check!

  24. Dia

    Once you find a pattern it really just keeps working.

  25. Dia

    Thanks Jessica!

  26. Dia

    I hope you have an awesome June Carol.

  27. Dia

    Thanks Candy!

  28. Dia

    Yeah it’s just an over nighter but I need it lol

  29. Dia

    I keep saying I’ll do 30 minutes before bed but it’s like “I’m tired, I just want to watch cartoons for a bit” haha

  30. Dia

    Haha truth. I listen to short stories and audio books at work but only have the hard copy of this one.

  31. Dia

    Fingers crossed. I just always feel like there is something I should be doing.

  32. Dia

    Thanks Kerona!

  33. Dia

    I am the same way. Have a great June!

  34. Dia

    I just finished all the copy and setting up the mailchimp for it. I’m nervous but so excited!

  35. Dia

    I like it so far and what it’s teaching me so far is the path to success isn’t always pretty or conventional.

  36. Dia

    So far so good!

  37. Roxy

    I love that you do this every month. I think it’s a great way to keep yourself focused and hold yourself accountable. Plus, it let’s your audience know exactly what you’ll be up to for the months..who knows, maybe they will be inspired to help u reach your goals!

  38. Leslie Rossi | alifewellconsumed

    all great goals! i’m also tracking my diet lately.

  39. Kusum

    Your goals are always inspiring Dia! Yikes at the hail damage, sucks. I love social media challenges, they are so funa and also help us grow.
