Now this is the part where I’m usually saying right I’ll have to start my goals in February because they haven’t gone to plan this month, but for the first year yet I am not saying that wahooo (pat on the back please). My 2018 goals have started off pretty well in all fairness so I won’t be making February goals. My intentions are to just carry on what I have been doing and also try and reach some more of my yearly goals. Anyway here is how the loooongest month of the year went…
What goals have I achieved in 2018 so far?
MY LITTLE BLOG HIS 15K YAAAAAY! – So one of my goals for this year was to go that bit further with my blog, but little did I know I’d reach half of my goal in just one month. My aim by the end of the year is to get 20k views and I hit 15k last week, and I cannot explain how grateful I am that people actually enjoy reading my content. I wrote a post that was personal to myself and family and was very nervous to hit publish but wow what an amazing response and so much support me and my family have received since. I hope to continue writing some more posts that will hopefully help other families in the future so keep your eyes peeled.
Gratitude– I wanted to start the year off being positive and I decided that every night before bed I would write three things that I am grateful for. I haven’t gone one night without writing in my little book yet, don’t get me wrong there has been nights where I’ve had a crappy day and thought there was nothing good about it, but once I thought there was actually so many things to be grateful for in that one day.
Healthy- I’ve actually been doing ok at the whole being healthy thing – I mean I could be better but slow progress is better than no progress hey! However, now that
dry January is over you can ask me at the end of Feb if I’ve still been healthy because I’m a suckaaaa for hangover food.
Look after my skin and eyes – Finaaaally I have new glasses, and I absolutely love them not even just for the design but purely because I can see clear again. I have also been doing a skin care routine before bed every night but unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be working. My skin is worse than ever at the moment and I am clueless as to why. If anybody has any suggestions pleaaase help.
My January No’s
This has been the hardest by far, if you didn’t know – I set myself a little challenge in January you can read it here. I managed most of my No’s which is why I dashed straight for my eyebrows done after work today. Honestly I’ve felt like a haaaairy man for what feels like forever (too much information) but not getting my eyebrows done was such a chore. I managed my limited spending kinda I guess… I did have a little blow out on the Weekend because I desperately needed new gym clothes and I also bought some summer clothes yesterday. The one January no I did fail was getting my nails done thanks to my bestie Holly – she is just the best at gel nails and I literally popped for a cuppa and left with some pretty gels (oooops).
So all in all I did pretty well with my goals and I am excited to continue them in February. I also did ok with the January No’s, but it’s safe to say I am so ready to feel like a lady again and be able to treat myself oh and drink a cocktail or ten. February, March and April are my busiest months so let’s see if I can continue…
