February Goals

Hellllo February – bye, bye January! 

The first month of this new year put me through the ringer, let me tell ya. Cesar and I celebrated New Year’s Eve in Lancaster, Pennsylvania (we were looking for a low-key NYE), and 2 days after that, I got a sinus infection that lasted for like 12,342 days. Okay, maybe like 10 full days, but it felt like FOREVER. Even while sick, I did work towards my January goals, which was a feat in itself!

Let’s take a peek again at what I wanted to accomplish in January:

January Goals Review

  • Add ads to my blog that showcase my favorite things.
  • Spend 15 minutes each day pinning during my work commute home.
  • Increase Instagram following from 122 to 150. 
  • Publish a new blog post at least 3 times a week (shooting for 4).
  • Attend group fitness classes at least 4 days a week. 
  • Form the habit of saying a prayer every day while brushing my teeth in the morning.
Turns out, adding ads to my blog was really easy. I placed a few up on the sidebar for a couple  categories for beauty and style. Almost every weekday I did in fact pin on my blog’s Pinterest account (a NYC commuter benefit of not driving!), my Instagram grew from 122 to 190, so I definitely surpassed the 150 goal. Now it’s down to 178 – oh the joys of follow-unfollow shenanigans. Three out of the four weeks in January I published 3-4 posts, which was my biggest commitment, and I worked the hardest at making it happen. Waking up at 5:15am each weekday to blog is NO JOKE, ya’ll. On the other hand, I felt like my workout goal was easy to reach because it’s just a part of my life now, and I don’t think I need to set it as a goal per se to hold myself accountable.  On the other hand, saying a morning prayer while brushing my teeth didn’t work out so well, but I do a pretty good job of praying consistently at bedtime. 

February Goals

  • Wake up at 5:15am at least 3 out of the 5 weekdays to blog.
  • Publish a new blog post at least 3 times a week (roll-over goal!).
  • Increase Instagram following from 178 to 225. 
  • Only eat out for lunch once a week.
  • Meal prep every Sunday.
  • Actually down-size my wardrobe (whatever doesn’t sell on eBay is going to ThredUp/getting donated).
  • Enjoy a Broadway show for my birthday.
 
As always, I look forward to sharing these monthly goal posts for a couple reasons. First, monthly goals help hold me accountable. Secondly, it gives ya’ll a picture of what I’m focusing on each month and will inspire you to write down your own monthly goals.
