February Small Goals

It cannot be February already. I refuse to believe it.

Okay yeah, I believe it. But it’s really unfortunate because January kicked my bootyyyyy. I actually got a lot done and accomplished a whole lot – unfortunately most of it didn’t line up with my small goals. Eek. In case you’ve never read a small goals post before, each month Nicole from Writes Like a Girl hosts a linkup for bloggers to share a few goals for the month. Make sure to head over to her post and get inspired by all the other small goals! Let’s review my goals for January:

  1. Film and post 2 YouTube videos – ….oops. I mean, I filmed one, but that’s as far as I got.
  2. Write and post at least 4 beauty posts – ….nah. I did one. (A Lipsense review! You can read it here if you’re interested.)
  3. Finalize business paperwork – Sheesh this should have been an easy one but, to be honest, I straight up forgot this was on my list.
  4. List services on my blog – YAY! I did this! I’m now offering Pinterest critiques and management services, you can read more about them here.
  5. Continue to work out and eat healthy – Yeah! Granted, I can do better but I’m gonna give myself a win for this!

2/5. Yikes. Alright here’s what I’m looking to accomplish in February.

  1. Keep up with my small goals – Is this cheating? Whatever, I’m including it. I don’t mean that I have to accomplish all my small goals, I just need to make sure they’re actually on my mind throughout the month.
  2. 4 beauty posts on my blog – But for real this time.
  3. Re-establish a cleaning schedule – Y’all. My house has been out of control lately. For the sake of my own sanity, I need to get a cleaning schedule put back in place.
  4. Finish at least one book – I’ve really been slacking on my reading lately (lately, meaning like…the last year or more). I started Amy Poehler’s “Yes Please” a few weeks ago and need to finish it up! If you have other similar suggestions, let me know. (I’ve read Mindy Kaling’s books and Bossypants, but anything similar is great!) I also love mystery books, anything that’s a “page turner.”
  5. Drink 3 (or less) Cokes a week – Ugh I reallyyyyy didn’t want to include this, but I need to. Cokes are my number once vice and I really need to cut back.

What are you working on this month? Can you *believe* it’s already February?!

  1. I’ve switched to only diet sodas. I’m sure health nuts will tell you how bad those are too, but at least they’re zero calories and zero sugar! Coke zero is my go-to. And Gold Peak makes a really good diet sweet tea.

    1. Eh I mean regular sodas are horrible too, at least you’re not getting the extra calories! I definitely think Coke Zero is the best tasting diet soda by FAR. I’m going to try to start slowly using Stevia in my tea (it’s all natural/plant based) – I’ll probably never give up Cokes fully but if I can cut back I think that will help me a lot. I’m so addicted haha.

  2. I think more people need to include “finish to-do list” on their to-do list. That is hilarious but also helpful. Have you read Girl Boss by Sophia Amoruso? I feel like you would like it but also that you’ve already read it? Just throwing it out there. I’m waiting on her new one “Nasty Galaxy” to come in at the library. I don’t know what to expect but hopefully it’s just as interesting!

    1. I have read Girl Boss *but* I didn’t know about Nasty Galaxy, so thanks for the heads up! I’ll have to do the same and watch for it at my library.

  3. I definitely need to cut down on drinking Coke too! I usually don’t let myself buy any more for the week once I run out, but that still means I have two bottles to myself within the first few days of the week… Not good.
