5 Goals for February 2022: An Update

Hello everyone.

February is over (finally!) and so I wanted to check on my goals for the month.

We’ve been thrown a few curveballs this month, so I don’t think I worked hard enough on some of my goals. Let’s check them one by one.

One

Follow our weekly meal plan.

Well, this definitely didn’t happen. Between my husband getting covid, us being quarantined for a week and me getting recently diagnosed with gestational diabetes (I’ll update on that later), our meals have been all over the place. Hopefully, we’ll do better in March.

Two

Follow our budget.

Not sure. Still need to check with my husband and do our monthly budget meeting but I’m pretty sure we overspent on a few categories.

Three

Walk every single day.

Definitely not. We were stuck at home for 7 whole days and then I didn’t really manage to do much walking the rest of the month because I simply wasn’t in the mood.

Four

Visit both our families.

We were able to see Rui’s family twice and some of his extended family (unfortunately, while attending a funeral) which was quite lovely as we don’t see them often. I saw my sister a couple of times too. Didn’t see my mom but I’m meeting her later this week for lunch.

Five

Keep up with my journaling.

Not at all. I’ve been on a journaling block for the last couple of weeks. I’ll do my best to get back to it this month.

After reviewing my monthly goals and the month of February in general, I have to say it was pretty meh. I’m hoping March will be better.

Love,

Cheila

5 Goals for February 2022

One

Follow our weekly meal plan.

We eat better, save money and don’t waste food when I follow the meal plan I have set. I’ve been enjoying cooking and trying new recipes too, so it’s something fun to look forward to. Mostly, I like how in control I feel when things are planned and organized.

Two

Follow our budget.

Even though we budget for every euro we spend, it’s still very easy to go off track and overspend if we’re not careful. It helps if we keep a close eye on our spending so I plan on doing just that.

Three

Walk every single day.

I have to “train” for this 5 km walk I’m doing in March (shame on me, my husband is running a half marathon and I actually have to practice to walk 5K), meaning I should be walking every single day for the month of February. My plan is to walk 3 km a day for the first two weeks and then 4 km a day for the next two.

Four

Visit both our families.

We haven’t seen them since Christmas and they’re missing out on my pregnancy with their first grandchild so we’ll try to make it happen.

Five

Keep up with my journaling.

I got The 6-Minute Diary from Amazon and absolutely love it.

What about you? Any goals for February?

Love,
