February has been determined as the month of giving up; it is the month during which most people throw their hands up and admit defeat--giving up on their resolutions before the year has even started. It is for this reason, along with Valentine's Day, that Gala Darling deemed February Radical Self-Love Month. I thought a personal analyzation of priorities and progress would be wise.
I wanted to read more.
Steps I Have Taken: I've purchased a good majority of the books I hope to read. I have also done a lot of research and developed a lengthy to-read list.
Steps I Need to Take: Pretty self-explanatory; make time to read, and actually do it.
I wanted to focus on school more.
Steps I Have Taken: I have paid much more attention in math and it looks like--if I keep heading in this direction--I will earn all A's (with the exception of math, most likely) this semester. I have also enrolled in online and summer courses so I can create a schedule that I will enjoy for my senior year next year.
Steps I Need to Take: I need to procrastinate a bit less and work ahead so I experience less stress.
I wanted to stop drinking soda.
I have completely given up soda and haven't had a drop to drink in 2011. Wahoo!
I wanted to get to the point where I am comfortable in my own skin + love myself.
Steps I Have Taken: I have done a lot of positive things, i.e. my cleanse, taking care of my body, and focusing on my interests and academics over romance.
Steps I Need to Take: I need to get back on track in regards to health and wellness. It isn't that I'm eating unhealthily--I'm just intaking more dairy + processed foods than I would like to. I would also like to severely cut back in my coffee intake.
I wanted to blog more often.
Successful so far!
As far as goals for February, I have succeeded in avoiding fast food completely. I still need to work out more often, cut back my Starbucks intake by quite a bit, + find a job. But I realize and accept that change is a process, and I am giving myself the time that I need to adjust.
How are your goals coming along?
