February Look Back and March Goals.

A look back at February's goals:

Refocus on my studies
"I had a huge leap in progress with my assessments over January, but since coming back to work, they've been untouched. I aim to complete and submit at least one task, and have begun another before the workshop I will be attending later on this month."
Tick: I don't mean to brag, but I absolutely nailed this one, guys. I submitted three assessments before the workshop and despite getting in to my own head, still managed to submit another seven or so during the workshop.

Improve my diet
"Getting back to the gym was hard. The most hard. I've finally gotten back in to my workout routine, but my eating habits haven't switched from holiday mode yet. This month I'm focusing on getting back to eating the way I did before Christmas came along. It may not exactly be #cleaneating but it's what worked for me."
Tick: I think I've FINALLY gotten out of the Christmas/December/time off eat anything and everything habit. I feel about a zillion times better already AND have lost a few kilos.

Get a sound system installed in my car
"(You may judge accordingly)
I miss the doof doof days of my very first car, and I've been meaning to get my sub re-installed in my new ride for the longest time (read: since the day I bought it home)."
Cross: IN MY DEFENCE, I had to get my car serviced.. Yup. Excuses.

Book my tattoo
"Lately, I've been scouring tattoos on Pinterest daily and I've made myself the most keen for tattoo number two. It really is true what they say: once you get one, you can't stop.. I have my design ready and I hope to speak to the artists at Emerald Ink and book myself in for yet another torturous needle prodding session."
Tick: Fucking yes. I have my consultation in a few days and tattoo number two will be booked in fro late March/early April.

Goals for March:

Loose 2kg
Now that I think (fingers crossed) I've got my eating/working out back on track, there's no reason why I can't loose 2kg in a month. I'm so close to my goal weight it's ridiculous. Just a few more kilos.

Finish the "budget" lot of assessments
If you read my post about the event's workshop I attended, you'll know I've been struggling with this particular lot of assessments. I've not submitted any assessments since the workshop and I've most definitely been putting this one off. Hi, my name's Christie and I'm a procrastinator. This month, I will submit the two budget assessments and be done with the horror that is basic maths that haunts my soul.

Take the time to think about mum's birthday present
I have a terrible habit of leaving present buying to the last minute, and coming out with something... rushed. Let's say rushed. This year, I shall find something meaningful to get mum for her birthday on April 1, and I shall find it in plenty of time.

Create a media kit
All the recent talk of media kits in the blogger community of late has finally persuaded me to create one for Christie's Take on Life. That's right, my name's Christie, and I have been blogging for three years without a media kit. It's down to pure luck that I haven't been asked for one but I'd damn sure like to have one for when the occasion arises.

Clean the bottom of my wardrobe
The floor of my wardrobe has become a dumping ground for my work flats, bags, clothes that have fallen off their hangers and other miscellaneous bits over the months and it's getting to the point of piling up to my hanging clothes. I am in need of a Spring (Autumn) clean. Bonus points if I can manage cull and donate few items.


  1. What a great way to ensure you stay accountable! Can't wait to see your new tattoo! I've been waiting to get some new ones for ages but I keep putting it off for one reason or another. Right now is money. Soon though, soon.

  2. I don't have a media kit either so that's my goal too, although I have found a simple email with your stats is usually sufficient enough to get brands interested in working with you. I think www.beckybedbug.com has a good post on where to get started. Good luck with your goals :)

  3. Ahhh I love that you are getting a tattoo! I'm actually thinking of getting my first tattoo :)

  4. These sound like great goals. I am looking to start eating better too!

    I like your goals! I wish I could muster up the courage to get my tattoo updated. It's so old (and looks as old as it is eek)

  6. I love this collaborative type of post, get those goals in March! xx adaatude.com

  7. I need to create a media kit this month too, Christie! Congratulations on achieving so many goals last month - looking forward to following along this month!

  8. Money. Always money - I know them feels. D: One day!
    I'm so excited for new ink. It's true: once you get one, it's difficult to stop hehe. x

  9. In all honesty, I don't necessarily believe a media kit is a necessity, but it seems that's what prolific brands want nowadays. Sigh, I've sent off my stats through email on occasion and that's seemed to have been enough, I just don't want to be caught out if that's specifically what a brands wants. I guess it makes your blog seem more professional? Meh.
    Thank you for the link! It's definitely helpful. :) x

  10. Yass! Do itt! Be warned: once you get one, it's hard to stop there. :P x

  11. Aww. I'm terrified of needles, and yet that still won't deter me from sitting through another session aha. If you're unhappy with the way it looks, muster that courage, girl! x

  12. Thanks, darl. :)
    Creating a media kit has been one of those things I've been putting off for ages. :| Let's get this done together. :P x


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment! I love hearing from you all!
