January Look Back and February 2017 Goals.


A look back at January's goals:

Get back on track with my exercise
"I allowed myself (too much) time to enjoy the holiday season without worrying too much at all about hitting the gym, but now it's time that I get back in to my exercise routine and stick to it."
Tick: I did good, you guys! I hit the gym every day that I was supposed to and have successfully eased back in to the routine.

Continue giving new life to old posts
"I'm proud of myself for editing the few oldies that I have over the past week or so, but I would definitely like to continue doing so, preferably by bulk taking photos whilst I'm still off of work. The photo taking is always what kills me. Always."
Tick: I edited, re-taken photos and re-shared quite a few old, embarrassing posts last month. Let's all sit here and be proud because it's something that I honestly doubted I'd get around to.

Eat properly
"I've been eating a lot lately. Like a lot. However I've not been eating actual meals. I've more so been snacking on leftover Christmas bits and takeout because it's too damn hot to cook and I'm lazy and I just can't with life right now. BUT starting now, I'm making the conscious effort to eat nutritious meals and cut out snacking as much as possible."
Tick: I rarely even snacked all month. I'd make 2-3 meals and be set for the day. Now that I'm back at work it's a tad more difficult, but I'm still managing to eat well enough.

Get back in to a routine of sorts
"I've really (and I mean really) been slacking in every aspect of my life lately, so I'd like to start to get back in to something of a routine to ensure that going back to work isn't going to be such a big shock to the system. Sleeping pattern, meal pattern, exercise routine. KGO."
Tick: Going back to work after 5 weeks of doing nothing but sleeping in was hard, you guys but I definitely made it easier on myself by starting my routine back up before I had to go back to the office.

February's Goals:

Sell some stuff
We're building a house and both Jesse and I have that much junk accumulated, I don't know how we'll fit it all in. I'd like to sell some good condition bits and pieces that I no longer need/use (for more money for shoes, obvs). Bonus points if I can get Jesse to do the same (I'm doubtful. Very doubtful).

Take more photos
There was a point in time when all I did was take photos, nowadays, my Instagram is suffering. I don't know if it's just because I generally don't do a lot outside of work and sleep, or whether I just got lazy but I'd definitely like to get back in to documenting my adventures.

Lose 2kg
I weighed myself last week, and it turns out that eating better and exercising contributed to a weight loss - who would have thought?! I haven't seen a loss in a long time and although I'm still heavier than I was before Christmas, I've lost a good 3kg of the Christmas weight that I gained. Ka-ching. Hopefully this high will motivate me to lose a further 2kg this month..

Save my money
With the holidays and my break from work, I've been spending a lot lately. Since we've just started paying our loan repayments and still need to buy a lot of furniture, etc. I'm going to try to go on a bit of a spending ban this month and build my balance up some more.

  1. I feel ya on getting back on track with exercising. It seems if you miss a week or 2, it's hard to get back into the swing of it.

  31. Story of my life haha. I've learnt that setting a few obtainable goals is far more efficient than setting heaps and accomplishing very little.
