JANUARY IS OVER!!!One month down and eleven more to go! January is a month I have very mixed feelings about as on the one hand, I feel very motivated about the year ahead, but on the other, I have no money as I spent it all over Christmas and the holiday spirit has worn off meaning the January blues kick in. I am very proud of what I achieved during January and I mentioned this in one of my previous posts –first month of fitness, but I still think I can do better. I also don’t want to loose focus on my goals, so each month I want to set myself the next step.
- Hit the gym 3 times a week!
So far, this has been going really well for me and I have been feeling the benefits already. I want to keep this up during the whole year, but thought we had better start with the next month. I used January to find out what I liked and disliked and now I need to get a schedule down.
- Write down something positive every day
I am not the richest or most successful person of my age and sometimes, I can get a bit down about this. I’m not 100% sure what I want to aim for in life, so I sometimes feel like I’m stuck in rut or like I’m not going anywhere. I shouldn’t care about this stuff and I am grateful for what I have, but I do sometimes forget how great I have it and that just because I am doing something different to others, doesn’t make it less worthwhile. I need to focus on even the small joys and positives in everyday. So far I have found when I am writing down the most positive thing about that day, I never struggle for one answer, but I struggle to choose the best. So far it is giving me a great boost! It can be anything from I got to have a lie in this morning – I booked a holiday. Anything that brings me joy!
- Focus on my blog
One of my New Years goals was to focus and create a better blog and since then I think I have put up about one post! It is something I enjoy so much and something I want to get better at, but it does take a lot of time and effort. Last month I focused on getting my gym and healthy eating into my schedule so this month I want to add in tome dedicated to my blog. Keep your eyes peeled for new content.
- Do more young things
I sometimes feel like I am actually a granny inside of a 20 year olds body and I want that to change. I want to be spontaneous and maybe even a little bit stupid as I don’t want to look back at my life and regret spending my Friday and Saturday nights on the sofa! I want stories I can tell so I’m gonna make them! I have a lot of energy and steam that needs to be blown off and why not; I’m young, I have the time and who doesn’t love to get dressed up! I do love spending evening in with my partner, but I also want to go out with my girls.
- Do something intellectual
So we have something to get me in shape, something to keep me happy, a hobby and something fun so I think we are missing something intellectual. I need to read a bit more, but sometimes if I have been sat at a computer all day the last think I want to do is read. I think I might try maybe an audio book or possibly listening to some TED talks as I recently discovered their app. I want to learn something new this month, even if it is something small!
February, here I come!
