In order to keep up the January motivation levels, I thought I’d set myself a few goals for February. February is usually when I give up on all my main goals for the year and realise that I just can’t be doing with all that healthy eating and would rather spend my life watching Friends with a large pizza. However, this year I chose not to set such restrictive goals to start the year and just take small steps to improve myself and get shit done. So February will be spent building on what I started. Who said goals were just for January?
Eat more vegetables
I’m trying to slowly change my diet this year, instead of making myself cry because I don’t have enough syns for an evening meal and I burned all the syn-free things we had.
This month I’d like to stop being lazy and add some vegetables to my meals because it would literally only require me chopping them up and sticking them in a pan. *Faints dramatically over the difficulty of life*
Eat less chocolate
If you’d seen my cupboard at the moment, you’d understand just how difficult this goal is. Unfortunately, when it comes to chocolate, I’m still in full “Christmas mode” which means every night is spent nursing a full pack of Cadbury’s finest. This needs to stop or I’ll never fit into my bridesmaid dress and I’ll have to make one out of a bin bag and that’s just not a good look for me, you know?!*
*Except that year my mum dressed me as a “bin bag witch” for Halloween. That was chic as fuck.
I’m trying to get much better at saving this year, and I think this goal should be manageable. Unless I decide that I need a bag full of mystery alpacas or something equally ridiculous. I’ll keep you posted if my money falls into a pit of pointlessness.
Be more active on a weekend
This goal is based entirely around the fact my body glues itself to the sofa on weekends, which results in shoulder pain, back pain, and me turning into a chocolate-scoffing machine. I’m not saying I want to run six marathons, while doing an intense Zumba workout or anything, I’d just like to be less of a weekend zombie.
Get out more
I barely left the house in January for anything other than work, so this month I’d like to get out more. I miss my friends and the trees and the skies and my local Sainsbury’s. But mainly my friends.
Finish watching The Punisher
Yeah, this goal is pretty stupid, but we’ve been watching it since November and we’re still only on episode five. I’m really struggling to get into it, but it’s a Marvel Netflix series so I’m bound by the “oath of nerd” to watch it all. Let’s hope it gets better.
Do you have any goals for February?
