February Goals


I don't know about anyone else but for me, January has felt like the longest month ever, I have done so many things to get myself back on track after the Christmas blues hit in - even though Christmas feels like a million years ago now - I have really been working on myself helping to get more confident, reduce my anxiety and create some big plans for 2018 which I definitely hope continues throughout the year. I started setting myself monthly goals in December and so far they have really been working out to help me stay organised as I use them as a to-do list so its very satisfactory when I know I have achieved one no matter how big or small they are.

Keep on top of e-mails and phone calls

I am that person who's inbox has to reach about 100 email's before I even think about looking at them as I just forget but then I feel overwhelmed with having to read so many. With phone calls, I just put them off so much as I never know what to say and stumble over my words - anyone relate? But with the nature of my work and blog I really really need to get on top of this. In fact, I'm going to start right after I have written this!

Exercise Daily

In no way am I going to be jumping to the gym every day as that just isn't my thing but light exercise is so important and I have really been trying to put it into my daily routine. I recently bought a weighted hula hoop and it is by far my favourite thing at the moment. 20 minutes using that a day is great for your abs but also I find it so fun! I also throw in a few squats, sit-ups and a walk which suits me perfectly as I don't go for intense workouts. 

Spend less money

Recently I have realised I have been spending more and more money on things I don't even realise and as much I want new clothes, endless outings and meals out to enjoy myself I think I need to slightly control myself and start to save half of my monthly income for the future.

Don't wear makeup 7 days a week

This is something I have wanted to do for a while and I am definitely going to start only wearing makeup 6 out of 7 days a week and then as I get more confident and my skin gets clearer maybe only 5 days a week etc. As it is becoming a chore sometimes to apply my makeup as I feel like I have to rather than I want to.

Do things for me

I think I included this in my 2018 goals but I am finding it so so hard! In January I already found I was agreeing to things even though they were seriously negatively affecting me. So February is the month I am going to start to get myself back on track and stay positive and do what I want- in a completely unselfish way of course!

Make more effort with the people who are important to me

As I just said I have been saying yes to things that have seriously made me step backwards with my mental health leading me to not doing things I want to so this month I am going to start making more effort with the people I sometimes take for granted specifically my grandparents and a couple of friends I know I haven't really seen recently. 

Improve this blog

You might or might not have noticed I have my own domain of www.katielou.co.uk instead of being .blogspot.co.uk but there are some big changes coming very soon so keep your eyes peeled!


What are your February Goals?

  3. I want to start exercising 5 times a week. I'm not a fan of the gym either, I might try doing workouts by Lucy Wyndham Read on YouTube.
