A recap of my January goals along with a look at what’s ahead for February.
Get the Look:
We made it through January, praise! It wasn’t as scary as I’d thought it would be. Man, 2020 has us jaded, am I right? Jokes aside, we made it. It was quite a month for me – I started a new job, am onboarding virtually which is a rather interesting experience, Theo started a new daycare – it was a “wild” month. Okay, okay, I’m sure you’re waiting to get a recap of my January goals so we might as well jump right in, shall we?
1. Walk/Run a Mile a Day. I’m going to count this one as complete mainly because I out of 31 days, I ran or walked 23 of those days. And some of those days were multiple miles. Total miles ran or walked last month is 26! That’s pretty good, if I do say so myself. 2. Clean out my Closet. Done and done, ladies and gents! I went through my closet and got rid of anything that didn’t “bring me joy” and did the same with my dresser. I put away any remaining, out of season clothes, too. I plan on going through my wardrobe one more time in February to get rid of anything I was on the fence about in January. My sister will have first dibs but, otherwise, I may sell on Poshmark or on Instagram. We’ll see. 3. Find a Therapist. This is probably my biggest and proudest accomplishment from January. My mental health took a major hit in 2020 and I was determined to take care of it for 2021 and that required me to talk to someone. Thankfully, I was able to schedule a virtual assessment and spoke to a therapist about ALL THE THINGS. I have a few more sessions scheduled for this month and they will determine if I stick with this therapist or find a new one. You can read all about my previous therapy experience and how I had to “break up with” my initial therapist here.
February Small Goals:
1. Clean out my Car. This is an easy task that I put off so much my car looks like a dumpster. And I can’t even completely blame the kids for this one, I’m just as bad about throwing things way in an actual trash bin. The funny thing is that it’ll take my maybe 30minutes tops, I just have to actually do it.
2. Reach out for partnerships. I got kinda lucky last year in that I fell into partnerships with brands. In reality, I really slacked in my collaboration efforts, and to be candid with y’all, I love brand collaborations! It’s a fun way to tap in to my creative side. I get to brainstorm ideas, create a story, and relate that story to the specific brand. This month I want to make it my goal to pitch at least 3 brands I really want to work with and see if they’ll collaborate. Wish me luck!
3. Do the 100 day Challenge. Have you heard about this? It’s a genius way to save money, which is not my strong suit so I need to “gamify” it for myself. Basically, you label 100 envelopes with the numbers 1 to 100. Then, every day you put the amount of money for that day in the assigned envelope, i.e. on day one you put in $1 in envelop one, on day two you put $2 in envelope two. Essentially, by the time you get to day o100, you’ve got yourself $5050.
