February 2021 Goals | Be More Me
Hello February! Did January drag for anyone else? I always find that if I'm ahead with my blogging schedule, I always think I'm closer to the end of the month than I actually am - January has been two weeks longer for me!
Also, my pageviews were off the charts in January and I can't explain how grateful I am to everyone who reads and comments! Thank you all so much, it means the world to me.
I got mad with myself a few weeks ago and tweeted that 2021 is the year I finally "glow the f*ck up!" and I really want to stick with that! I have been trying to work out again lately but I have spent the majority of the year ill so far. Trying to workout with swollen tonsils is hard, I couldn't breathe! However, I'm not going to let that stop me.
Today is Imbolc and I'm planning on spending the day spring cleaning and getting outside. Check out my Imbolc & Ways to Celebrate post if you want to learn more about it!
Spend Less Time on My Phone
I spent the first two weeks of January isolating, and the majority of that time on my phone. This meant I was unmotivated, unproductive (except for blogging!) and wasn't Mum enough. I have re-installed the Forest app to my phone, and plan to at least double the amount of trees grown compared to the last two weeks!
I also decided to go completely phone-free the past weekend. Friday night I logged out of Twitter, Facebook, Messenger and turned off my notifications for Whatsapp. Once I'd done that, my phone actually died and I decided to leave it off! I charged it, just in case, but left it off. Josh and I had a lovely evening, watching a film together and then talking until we fell asleep. This weekend we did some (essential) shopping, watched films, went for a walk, and played games - he played Valhalla, I played Animal Crossing - all without me being distracted by my phone every two seconds. I didn't turn it back on until Charlie was in bed Sunday evening and I'm very proud of myself.
Spend Less Money
My spending ban was a little rubbish last month, so I want to spend as little as possible this month.
I really want to lose a noticeable amount of weight this month, but in a safe and manageable way! I bought myself a skipping rope last month and I've been really enjoying using it! I also need to get back into using the Ring Fit on the switch.
I haven't touched my book since I started writing it a couple months ago! This month I really want to allot some time to it each week and get writing again.
Until next time,
