Before I say a single word guys, I just want to apologise for this post being soooo late. We’re already a week into March and time is just flying by. I am usually incredibly organised I promise, but with me getting into work and trying to put that first, I have struggled to piece this together. But, here we are and lets do it!
Again, this month I am going to be focusing on my personal development and just growing as a person. So to begins, I’m going to review my last months goals to see where I have achieved.
Daily Task Sheets
This really healthy routine has really helped me get through February efficiently, especially in terms of my blog and wanting to network more with fellow bloggers. As I discussed in my February goals post, this method of work was to help me stay motivated and interact with others. I thought I would share with you my progress for the month, as you can see below;
This method is definitely something I will be carrying on with from month to month as I feel it has really helped me stay on track daily.
Use my new weekly planner
One thing I wanted to achieve last month was more productivity and organisation. I think that has definitely been hit! This AMAZING little weekly planner has been soooo helpful when tracking when I’m next in work even down to my contraception. Again, definitely something I will carry on using to keep me on track.
Find a job
As you may have seen already, I GOT THE JOB AT COSTA!!! So in my last post I spoke about the interview I had at Costa for a supervisor role and I got it. I couldn’t be any happier! I am feeling a lot better in myself and almost a little more ‘normal’. My confidence has grown with speaking to people on a daily basis and at the same time I’m earning these pennies to pay the bills. Fingers crossed, the only way is up now.
Eat more consistently
Being totally honest with you guys, I have smashed this goal. I’ve been eating a lot more consistently and actually put on a bit of weight. With my partner training for his bodybuilding competitions later on in the year, I have been training a little bit with him and picked up some really good habits so I’m grateful to have such a positive influence in my life.
Moving on to my goals for March then…
I understand that this may sound absolutely ridiculous, but to me, this is kinda important. Talking is something that doesn’t come easy to me, especially in times of anxiety or when doubting my own opinion. Sometimes I feel as though my opinion isn’t valid or somewhat necessary when talking to my partner or family members. One thing that I need to remember is to believe in my own feelings and thoughts and ‘talk more’ to help with my own self acceptance.
One thing I genuinely haven’t done since school is read a book and even then I found it very difficult to actually take in what I was reading. I’d tend to just ‘skim-read’ and not process anything.
I have decided to buy two books which I saw in Tesco a few weeks ago and had a little bit of a burning desire for them. They really do look incredible. So, basically Fearne Cotton has a series of books which are aimed at personal development. The first being named, “Happy” and the second, “Calm”.
I’m not going to say that I have to finish one of these in March as I feel this is a little unrealistic for myself and my history with reading. But, one thing I am going to do is at least read a little every day just so I’m almost programming my brain to want to read and actually enjoy it. I think it may help with winding down at the end of a long day.
My health comes first
This is a bit of a weird one I guess. Basically, so many people keep telling me to look after myself and that my health comes first and I feel as though it’s really difficult to just sit and and accept that maybe sometimes I’m not going to be okay. I am that person who will keep going and going until I literally can’t stand anymore. E.g. I will push myself at work even if I aren’t well and yeah I’ll more than likely be worse off for it.
With my undiagnosed issue of fitting and having seizures, I really do need to be careful not to overwork myself. Most of the time I feel totally fine and it takes me by surprise but I think if I just take it easy from now and again then it might help. The worst thing about it is that I am literally sat in limbo until August when I get to go to the hospital to see a neurologist. What do I do till then? Am I supposed to just carry on like everything is normal? How are me and my boyfriend supposed to live a normal life where he isn’t worried about leaving me on my own?
Anyway, enough of me ranting about my health, that’s my goals for the month and I’m really hoping to smash them. As for last months goals, they will not be forgotten and I will still be using my weekly and daily trackers, as well as eating properly too.
I hope you lovelies have enjoyed reading, any questions or feedback would be highly appreciate so feel free to leave below.
