February Goals

I can't believe February is already here! This year is already flying by. Today is also Groundhog Day... here in Georgia, our groundhog didn't see his shadow so spring is coming early, which is fitting since the highs for the rest of the week are in the upper 60s, some even in the low 70s.


I have a lot of goals for February!

Read new books // I spent the month of January re-reading my Harry Potter books... oops! Technically, that means that I read 7 books in one month. On the other hand, I've read all of the books multiple times so I don't know if it really counts! I need to start reading new books in 2017, which won't be hard because when I was cleaning out my wallet I found an unused Barnes and Noble gift card! Now I just need to go and browse!

Join a gym // I'm working on a post now about my favorite at-home workout videos, and I'm so excited to finish it and share it with y'all. However, as I was trying out all the videos... I realize how much I missed having and going to a gym! Working out at home is hard for me since I live with my parents, who each have their own routine, and have to do it in my room... which means no jumping and I'm always a foot away from my bed... which is so cozy and warm! And honestly, I miss the treadmill and being able to RUN! (My neighborhood is extremely hilly... no thank you!) This month I'm going to start looking for an inexpensive gym to join in my neighborhood.

Get back into regular posting // I really want to get back into the swing of things with posts! Since my schedule was so crazy last semester I let the blog suffer... one of my goals for February is to post more consistently. I've also been toying with the idea of adding a vlog feature or even a newsletter... I'll definitely be brainstorming about those ideas more this month too.

Journal more often // Journaling was one of the things that I wanted to do more of this year... and so far I haven't been all that great at it. I'm trying to slowly get in the habit of journaling before bed each night to clear my head before going to sleep.

Do more outfit posts // Ok this is the last goal for the month, and it's also the goal I'm not 100% set on. In Columbia I had roommates and sorority sisters and other friends to take pictures of me for the blog... and now I have my mom (who doesn't even really know how to take pictures on her phone!). Hopefully I can at least brainstorm on how to start posting outfit pictures again this month, and then actually do it in March.

What are your goals for the month?

  1. Taking outfit photos is so hard when you don't have someone you can rely on to take them for you...I'm in the same boat! Yay for lots of reading and journaling!

  4. Most of these are my goals for this month as well! I really want to reread Harry Potter too, but I don't think I could commit myself to all 7 in one month haha!

    1. Ahh I don't know how it happened! Every time I got tired of reading the news or looking at screens I would just pick one up... guess that happened more often than I thought!

  6. I got a 3 year gym membership when I moved to Nashville and have been here just over a year -- i've gone maybe 10 times! I feel so guilty about that and reading this makes me need to stop wasting that membership!

  7. I am so so with you on the posting more regularly and also taking more outfit photos. My fiance does photography but its still hard for us to find time to shoot photos and have good lighting days, we are limited to weekends because we both work full time. This is also a goal of mine.
