Hello February!

One month of 2017 down, only eleven to go - can you believe it?! I feel like I blink and miss a week recently, I don't know where the time is going. It's now six months since I started my new job and whilst it feels like a lifetime on the one hand, it also only seems like yesterday that I started... It's crazy! So with time disappearing on me, it seems doubly important to set myself some goals and try to make the most of each month.
Hello February
Use ten sample sachets. This was one of my goals last month and, although I didn't quite manage to meet it, I did find that it made me use way more sachets than I usually would - which can only be a good thing! So I figure, setting the same target again will help me in my battle to use up all my samples.
See friends at least twice. Standard monthly goal! I don't know about anyone else but I find that, especially now I'm older, life can just get so busy that I suddenly realise weeks have passed without me seeing anyone - it's not good!
Finish the two books I'm reading. I was meant to finish one of these in January but didn't really commit to either one, so I read a bit more of both but didn't finish either... Which is shameful to say I used to read about a book a day at school. So I'm going to finish them both in February!
Start practising for selection tests/interviews. One of the courses I've applied for uses a selection test to choose applicants to interview, so I need to get practising on those! I won't find out til mid-March whether I've got any interviews, but I figure it's never too soon to start preparing just in case.
Sort my diet out. I planned to do this in January but ended up getting side-tracked with giving up caffeine instead... So it's time to give it another go! I need to stop eating my way through share-sized bags of chocolate buttons on a daily basis, for a start. I'm thinking less white bread (I've actually been taking salads instead of sandwiches to work for dinner so that's a good start right!?), less sweets and cake, and more vegetables.
February 2017
February is looking like being a fairly quiet month for me, with nothing exciting planned as yet... Which should give me plenty of time to work towards my goals! Don't forget to have a peek at how I got on with my Janaury goals, if you missed that. Have you set yourself any goals for February? Do you have anything nice planned?

  2. I seriously can't believe that the first month of 2017 is already over! I also would love to finish two books this month as I have not been reading a lot lately :)

  5. Seeing friends is a lovely goal. I think some people get too caught up with fitness or diet related goals and don't think about other things that make them happy.
