January: Goal review

January: Goal review


Happy Wednesday everyone how are you, I hope you have had a great day. I am feeling a little better than I have been I have been keeping my fluids up and taking a lot of naps to restore my energy.

This month has absolutely dragged and I am so happy that it is almost over because it is my birthday in 5 days! I can finally start getting excited and start preparing myself for my week-long celebrations. The only positive factor about the fact that this month has dragged is I have had a plenty of time to try and achieve my goals. before I let you know how well I have done let’s just refresh your memory on the goals I set myself.

My goals

  1. Save £50 – I have chosen £50 on top of the 10% I’d save from my wages because honestly I’d end up spending that within a few days on food, alcohol and other unnecessary items.
  2. Drink 2-3 litres a day – I know this sounds like a lot, but I used to drink this amount and then I just stopped keeping up with my fluids. I definitely need to start drinking more again.
  3. Unplug more – I had a week off from my blog and although I missed not posting, I enjoyed having time away from the screen, I have decided every weekend I will spend 2 hours off my phone and away from any screens.
  4. Give more compliments – I like to think I am a kind person, if I think your make-up looks pretty I will tell you, if I like your outfit, I’ll ask where you got it from etc, I’d like to compliment more people though, not just my friends, I’d like to start complimenting myself more too.
  5. Read three books – I am currently on the second book in the Harry Potter collection and there are seven in total, I would like to be on the fifth book by the time this month ends.
  6. Have a healthier diet – By this I mean I want to eat the correct meals a day and make sure they have a nutritional value.
  7. Spend more time outside – I did turn into a bit of a hermit in December, I really didn’t venture outside and I spent the majority of my time in bed. I want to get out more and get back into my photography too.
  8. Declutter – I know this is one of my new year resolutions but I really want to work on cutting down on space and getting rid of the things I have been holding on to for absolutely no reason.
  9. Cut down on sugar – I don’t have a lot of sugar in my drinks but it’s the amount that is hidden in my food, I need to half the amount of sugar I am consuming.
  10. Travel somewhere – I already have this one set, I have a few places in mind already and I have my travel diary ready!
  11. Vlog – I have one pretty well with that so far, I vlog from Monday to Friday and upload on a Sunday at 6pm. I’ll pop a link to my channel here for any of you who are interested.
  12. Call people – I don’t really understand why no-one likes to call anymore? I need to make more of an effort to actually speak to people.
  13. Eat breakfast – I am so bad at doing this, I get to work and feel dead because I’ve not had anything to eat
  14. Write a gratitude journal – I am grateful for a lot of things but I don’t say it enough so I want to do a list.
  15. Meditate – I want to try and focus my energy into something good, and I feel meditation would be a good thing to try.

Honestly looking at that list I know that I haven’t completed half of them but I have completed some so let’s see how well I have done.

My goal review

  1. Save £50 I haven’t been able to achieve this this month.I unfortunately have had a little pick up with my wage this month so things have been a little tighter than I would have liked it to be.
  2. Drink 2-3 litres a day – I have been able to achieve this. I think that’s because I am ill. I have probably drank way more than that.
  3. Unplug more – I have absolutely loved taking time away from my phone and away from social media in general to just live in the moment.
  4. Give more compliments – I’m getting better at just complimenting random people but I need to work on complimenting my boyfriend. He is the cutest and says the most sweetest things and I’m not really used to that so I am kind of blunt back to him which I feel really bad about. So I am working on being kind up to you my boyfriend.
  5. Read three books –I have definitely failed this one I haven’t read a full book this month let alone three!
  6. Have a healthier diet –Yes!! I have absolutely smashed this one! I’ve lost so much weight too so I’m feeling so good.
  7. Spend more time outside –Not in this cold weather! I can just about make it to the shop and back.
  8. Declutter I have thrown so much away. I still have a long way to go but I made a start.
  9. Cut down on sugar – I have done so well on this too. It’s definitely contributed to my weight loss.
  10. Travel somewhere – I will upload a travel post next month for you! I’m very excited to start my travel diary.
  11. Vlog – I have uploaded two so far! Last week I just didn’t have the time to and this week I am feeling so run down, I don’t want to have that documented.
  12. Call people – I call my boyfriend! I did try my best to call others but honestly they bore me.
  13. Eat breakfast – I brought myself Coco pops so I am so happy!
  14. Write a gratitude journal – I have a little journal that I keep hidden away. I am very grateful for a lot of things.
  15. Meditate – I tried it but I have taken a step into pilates and I am loving that instead.

There we go my loves, that is the end of my January goals review. Thank you for reading tonight’s post, I hope you have enjoyed it. If you have be sure to leave a like and comment a goal you have achieved below.
