February Goals – What I achieved this month

I think we can all agree that February was a ‘blink and miss it’ kind of a month, and I honestly don’t know where the time went. I know it’s the shortest month, but it felt like it passed in a complete blur, and I think I overestimated some of my goals. Whilst it may have gone in a flash, February was a pretty good month. We went away for a midweek break to review the beautiful Sandybrook Park, and we were blessed with a few spring-like days.

February Goals - What I achieved

So how did I do with my goals this month

Blogging goals

Buy my ticket for the Blog on conference in May – YES. I am really excited to go back to Blog on, and it will be my third time going to the conference.

Pitch to 10 brands or PR companies – I managed to pitch to 8 brands, and 6 of them have been successful, so I am really pleased with that.

Say yes to more things and push myself out of my comfort zone – I have had the opportunity to do this once this month, and met up with a small group of bloggers and business women for a ‘Working Wednesday’. We shared ideas, we chatted, we laughed, we did some work, and I came home full of positivity. I can’t wait to do it all again this Wednesday.  

SEO and update 10 old blog posts – Totally failed as I only updated 3 posts. However, I updated my post on booking a beach hut in Lytham St Annes, and a lovely lady messaged me and said she had booked one after reading my review. So I am really glad I updated that particular post.

Update my blog where necessary – Still need to tackle this.

House goals

Make an appointment for our oven to be professionally cleaned – Totally forgot about this, so will re-add it to my March goals.

Contribute to the food bank (this has been re-added from January) – Yes, I have got a small hamper of food I have collected during February. I just need to take it to the local food bank.

Deep clean the kitchen (another goal that has been re-added from January) – Still failing on this one.

Paint part of the landing wall which needs touching up – Another fail.

Sort out the boxes in the dining room – I managed to sort 3 out of the 4 boxes out. We have a Kallax unit in our dining room, and the canvas boxes have just been used as a dumping ground. They are organised and looking pretty again. 

Personal Goals

No spend on candles and beauty products… I have ENOUGH – YES I managed this. Totally high fiving myself !!!

Start wearing my fitbit – I have been wearing my fitbit nearly everyday. I very rarely hit 10,000 daily steps, and this is something I want to work on during March. 

Read at least 3 books – I managed to read 2 books during February, Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty, and The Birthday Girl by Sue Fortin. 

Learn to put my phone down more – Whilst I have been trying to in the evenings, I need to learn to put my phone down more during the day. Those usage reports that Apple send you are brutal !!!

Drink more water – Yes, have been really trying, but there is always scope to drink more.

How was February for you ?
