March Goals

March Goals
Y’all is it really March already? Where have the last two months gone? I am excited about March for several different reasons! One of them being is that tomorrow is my 1 year blogiversary! I can not believe that tomorrow marks a whole year I have been blogging! The time has flown by! Now on to my goals… With a new month comes new goals to accomplish.  I really love posting my goals because it helps keeps me accountable. I had a fairly successful February when it came to accomplishing my goals.

Here’s how I did in February:

Personal

-Continue to eat healthy. I will say that I did a lot better last month with making healthier food choices. I ate a lot of salads and protein filled meals.

-Workout 3 x’s a week. There may have been one week out of the month that I did not work out 3′ x’s but other than that I accomplished it!

-Start at least one book. I started Why Not Me by Mindy Kaling. So finally I am doing some reading again!

-Continue to save money. I was able to accomplish this as well. I spent less money that I typically do on clothes and makeup.

-Clean out my closet and get rid of clothes I do not wear anymore. I got rid of a huge bag of clothes just recently. I’m sure I could get rid of more things but at least this is a start.

Blog

-Write at least 1 week’s worth of post ahead of time. I will say I somewhat accomplished this. I started off February doing really well but then kind of got busy.

-Maintain my instagram followers. I did this and gained some followers. Thanks to all of you who follow me! I appreciate the love!

-Look into getting a Twitter account/learn more about using Twitter. I can’t say I completely accomplished this because I did not get a Twitter account yet. However I have been doing some research on it.

-Continue to connect with more bloggers. Considering that I just attended my first blog conference, I was able to accomplish this. I was able to connect with a lot of wonderful bloggers and the best thing about it was being able to find bloggers in my area.

-Have a link up ready to go by the end of the month. I somewhat accomplished this. it is currently still in the works but there has been progress made. I can not wait for the link up to start!

-Write a beauty post. I did not post a beauty post but I have taken some pictures of a review that I plan on having up very soon. I’m excited about it!

-Continue to increase my page views.  I have consistently increased my page view in February. I am so excited about it. This blog would be nothing without all of you who read it and support me. I appreciate you all so very much!

Goals for this month:

Personal

Start saving for my trip to Cancun.

-Continue to work out 3 x’s a week.

-Finish reading Why Not Me by Mindy Kaling

-Read one book

-Have at least two date nights

-Not let work life stress me out so much. It is just a job. Not going to lie, this is going to be hard to

do.

Blog

-Have the link up that is currently in the process completed by the end of this month

-Write a weeks worth of post ahead of time

-Update old blog posts

-Meet up with some local bloggers that I met at the Thrive Blog Conference

-Collaborate with more bloggers. If you’re interested in collaborating with me let me know! 🙂

-Potentially get a Twitter account. I’m thinking of just getting an account and going from there.

-Host a giveaway. Seeing that my 1 year blogiversary is tomorrow I really wanted to do a giveaway for it.

-Continue to improve my photography skills. 

So there you have it! I hope that I am successful in accomplishing my goals for this month. What are some of your goals for this month?

    One Year! Hooray! That is awesome. You did great last month, and it looks like you’ve got some great stuff lined up this month too. Just jump in with Twitter. I don’t get too many referrals from it, but it’s super easy, and allows others to share your posts easily.

      Thank You Shann!!! I am very excited! I am hoping to be able to accomplish a lot this month as well. I figure I will probably just jump into Twitter. I heard it varies for bloggers as far as the traffic they see from it.

      Thank You Tiffany! I can’t believe it’s already been a year! I hope I am able to do well with meeting my goals this month. Updating old posts really is a great thing to do but it really is time consuming. I am slowly but surely trying to update it.

      Thank You Kalyn! I could also improve on getting posts done ahead of time. Most of the time on the weekends I have so much going on and during the work week, I seriously have no energy. Thank god this weekend is a low key weekend. So I am hoping to produce some posts ahead of time.

  12. Good luck not letting work stress you out! That is the hardest thing for me to do. I’m on maternity leave right now and trying to figure out how I will balance having a baby and going back to work when I know that work causes me so much stress. I loved both of Mindy’s books. If you’re looking for something else really good, look at Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. I loved that book and had trouble putting it down.

      Meghan I try so hard not to let it stress me out and just say it’s only a job, but as you said it’s so hard to do! I do not have any kids but I can just imagine how stressed out you are. I know a lot of my friends hated having to come back to work after being on maternity leave. It’s taking me a little while to get into Why Not Me but I think once I have more time to sit down and actually read, I will enjoy it more. I also have her other book. I have not read Big Little Lies but it is on my kindle to read soon! I loved the Husbands Secret. If you haven’t read it you should. 🙂

      Thank You Lindsay! I have been doing a lot of cardio right now. I do Dance Fitness With Jessica. I love her workouts. I also do go to the gym and lift weights,etc. Nothing overly exciting really. I also love Tone It Up & Doing barre exercises. I am trying to tone down and lose weight before summer comes along. I am looking to have a beauty post up very soon! I am hoping the weather is good this week, so I can finish up my photos in natural light and get them ready to post. 🙂

And I totally support you getting a Twitter; even if you don’t use it, at least you have your name/handle taken and if anyone shares your content there, they can tag you!
