New Month // February Goals

february-goals
A new month has arrived once again! Believe it or not, January actually felt quite long. I have a feeling, though, that this month is going to fly by! Besides already being shorter than the rest, there are a lot of things going on for me. I will be finishing my first round of Whole30, celebrating Valentine's Day with my love, and going out of town for the weekend with friends! It is definitely going to be a great month filled with fun and a bit of relaxation :)

Though it will be a busy, shorter month, I still have some goals I would like to achieve!

+ Make good use of my extra time.
I am blessed this semester with only having to take one class, which means I have a lot of free time. It is definitely nice, but I need to make sure I am making the most of that time and am using it to develop other areas of my life. I have found that I am a bit slow to get started with things in the morning, so I need to be more disciplined and have a plan going in to each day.

+ Read two books.
I don't know how many times I have made reading a book a monthly goal and how many times it has never been accomplished. Sigh. I absolutely love reading, but I always tend to turn to other things when I have a few moments that I could spend reading. I am going to commit myself to reading two books this month though and make sure that it actually happens! I'm thinking of making it a routine to end my evening with reading before bed :)

+ Finish Whole30!
Woohoo! February 13th is my official "last day" of Whole30, although I am really not sure yet what my plan is beyond that. I don't want to un-do all of the hard work I have put in! I can notice my body feeling and looking better, so I don't want to ruin that. Regardless, I will celebrate my 30 day mark in some way and am committed to finishing strong!

+ Find an extra job.
Since I have all this free time during the week and I live on my own, I would really like to find an additional job to make some extra money. It is expensive to live here in the Bay Area and while I am getting by, I would like to have some more income to be able to put money away into savings and to not have to live on such a tight budget. Send some happy thoughts my way regarding this!

+ Take more photos.
Photography is one of my biggest passions in life, yet I have found that I haven't been taking very many photos lately. I always feel so great and fulfilled when I am fueling this creative part of me, so it is time to make it a priority and be more intentional about it. I'm hoping to have a photo adventure soon! Anyone want to join me?

Do you have any goals for February?

Happy new month, friends!

I have the same goal for reading a book this month! Although I broke it down to the week... but I definitely want to finish some books from my reading list. :) Best of luck on your goals!

Best of luck with these goals! I'm trying to read 24 books this year (two per month)...so far so good. Once I get started with a book I can't put it down. Congratulations on making it to the halfway mark with whole 30!

Great goals!!!
I also would like another job, but I don't have time for it this semester. I hope I can land something this summer. I really want to work in a bakery!

Jess said...

My goals are to read more and watch less tv and take better photos!
What kind of job are you looking for?

Jess said...

I love these goals!! My goals are to workout more often, take my camera on more trips, & start cooking dinner at home way more than eating out at restaurants!

Jess said...

A bakery would be so much fun! Bummer you don't have time this semester, but hopefully you will have some luck finding something this summer!

Jess said...

Thanks Jess! I'm definitely the same way with books. Good luck reaching your goal this year!

Jess said...

Yes! TV is just so convenient and always distracts me... Taking better photos is a great goal! I'm hoping to find an additional nanny position. I'd be open to something in art/design too, but those don't pay as much as nannying. We shall see!

Jess said...

Yeah, I really could read one within a week, but I thought I would give myself some leeway ;) Good luck to you as well!

Jess said...

Thanks Katie! Those are some great goals! I could definitely work out more too haha.

Jess said...

Great Goals Jess! One of my goals is to get to my goal weight that I have been working towards since last year. I am almost there!! :)

Jess said...

These are great goals. Best of luck on the job hunt!
