February 2017 Goals

Happy February, friends! January was filled with the building of new routines and healthy habits to start the year off well. Last month taught me the positive impact of drinking enough water, consistently taking my vitamins, eating more greens, stretching, and simply being mindful of what my body needs each day. I also quickly learned the value of making the most of my free time, as my schedule was suddenly much more full than I’ve been accustomed to.

On Sunday morning, I lit a candle, poured myself a warm cup of coffee (with cinnamon added into the brew process – yum!) and worked on my PowerSheets for the month ahead. It was such a joy to read through all the big picture goals I set for 2017 and break them down into manageable pieces to work through, little by little. Before I share my new goals for February, let’s review last month’s goals.

January Goals in Review:

– read Mark and Proverbs
– send thank you notes for early wedding gifts we’ve received
– grocery shop for healthy food by Sunday each week
– buy a programmable coffee maker
– listen to podcasts or scripture on audio during my morning commute
– write a budget for February
– choose a scripture to memorize
– implement my daily healthy habits (more on that in an upcoming post)
– read The Compound Effect
– publish my first wedding planning post (YAY!)
– read How to Win Friends and Influence People

I’m really happy with how January turned out. I’m proud of myself for sticking to most of my goals and learning what I am capable of accomplishing in a month’s time!

February 2017 Goals:

– send thank you notes for early wedding gifts we’ve received
– read Hebrews
– bake treats to bless others with on Valentine’s Day
– memorize a new scripture
– pray through my prayer journal each week
– read Weird
– create inspiration boards to guide the decorative style for our home
– buy more food storage
– read Galatians
– listen to a TED talk each week
