January Round Up & February Goals


If you've been following this blog for any length of time you'll be familiar with my usual monthly round up posts. I wanna continue these this year as they're fun to look back on, but I also wanted to shake things up a little bit too. So moving forwards I'll be pairing them with my monthly goals too - hopefully it'll be a nice way to reflect on the month that has passed while also thinking about I want to achieve in the coming weeks. I hope you like the new format!

February Goals

1) Write

One of my overall goals for 2017 was to write something longer than a blog post and I haven't made any progress on that in January. So this month I'm determined to get some words down on paper (or y'know, in a Word document).

2) Eat less, move more

I definitely did a good job on the moving more this month and got to the gym 12 times, but I definitely ate far too much deep fried stuff! With my wedding dress fitting fast approaching and a few extra Christmas pounds still hanging around, I'm determined to make healthier choices this month.

3) Keep saving

My no spend month in January definitely opened my eyes to how much mindless spending I do and how much bigger my savings could potentially be if I put a bit of focus on them. I want to keep being money savvy this month and get closer to finishing our wedding savings.

How has your month been? Do you have any goals for February?
