March Goals

So, Carnival has come and gone, and now March is in full swing, which means it's time to share my goals. February brought a lot of consistency, a virus and tons of Carnival prep – I even shared more about Trinidad Carnival on my Instagram Stories, and it's all saved in my Highlights, so if you missed it, go check it out!

Now that Carnival is finished, life is a little slower in some ways and definitely more hectic in others. I won't be hitting fete after fete anymore, but I'll be working a ton more trying to get my April issue out on time, as well as helping with three other publications coming out in the next two months. So it's going to be crazy - but fun - as always!

Now let's get into this month's goals and last month's recap!

Check out last month's goals and recap post HERE


RECAP OF MY FEBRUARY GOALS

1. READ SIX BOOKS // I really wasn't sure I'd be able to do this one, because February was so hectic, but I'm happy to say I managed to read 6 books in time! I knew the first week or two of March would be Carnival and recovery so I wanted to make sure I was ahead of my reading schedule (link to goodreads challenge) and i'm proud to say I did it!  

2. EXERCISE 5 DAYS A WEEK // I definitely exercised way more in February, and even days that I missed training, I'd make the effort to go to the gym and do an hour, wake up early in the morning, or go to a lunch-time yoga class. However, two weeks before Carnival, I got super sick with a virus and I was out for three days straight, making it that much harder to workout 5x that week. Besides that week though, I met this goal, so I'm giving myself partial credit here!  

3. FINALIZE MY CARNIVAL ACCESSORIES // Of course, this happened super last minute – but I somehow managed to get it all together in time: my Monday Wear, boots, tights, accessories and even glitter spray to make sure I was looking extra sparkly on the road! 

4. GET TO SLEEP EARLIER // I feel like this is always going to be a yes and no for me, because it was really dependent on the night. Sometimes, I stayed up til 3 am, and others I was passed out by 11:30 pm. I've accepted this is just who I am, although I'm always trying to get to bed earlier regularly!

5. TRY SOMETHING NEW // This is super tiny, but was something so totally new for me. If you know me, you'll know I'm so boring with my manicures: they're always gel polish, either in a bright red, a pale pink or trusty nude, and sometimes if I'm feeling exciting I'll do a deeper red. That's it. Four shades! Lame, right? So, last month I tried both white nail polish AND rose gold chrome nail polish, which I did to complement my Carnival costume. I shared them both under the NAILS highlight on my Instagram, so if you're looking for nail inspo, I gotchu! 

TOTAL: 4/5: Overall a great month, considering I hit most of my goals! 


MARCH GOALS

1. GET BACK ON TRACK WITH EATING HEALTHY // Carnival was last week Monday and Tuesday, and after months of being super strict and eating super clean, I gave myself the rest of the week to 'cheat', and eat all of the cravings I had while I was hardcore. Now that the last few days have passed, I need to re-commit to the healthy lifestyle I'd been following and it's a massive goal for my month to get back on track. I've seen in the past how easy it is to continue 'cheating' after Carnival (especially because there's no huge goal in sight: Carnival you're literally half-naked on the street so you're super motivated!). 

2. SCHEDULE MORE BLOG CONTENT // Now that I'll have a littleee more free time, I want to commit to blogging more often than just twice a month. Really trying to become more regular, especially as I approach my 6-year blogging anniversary at the end of the month! I'm trying to work on creating more content for TCD. 

3. BOOK MY FLIGHTS FOR E'S WEDDING // One of my besties from my sorority is getting married in the Fall! I know that I don't want to miss seeing her walk down the aisle to the love of her life, and so I've planned a quick little trip for her wedding, and to visit some friends in Boston and Connecticut. This month, I want to book flights while they're still affordable, book my hotels and finalize the details so I can officially RSVP YES to Erica and Matt!  

4. WAKE UP EARLIER // In the last few months, I've been making an effort to be up earlier, and at the start of the year, I was up consistently by 6 am. But obviously, as time passed and as I've gotten less and less sleep, I've found myself hitting the snooze button more and more. I live 5 minutes away from my office, and I definitely take advantage of that sometimes, so I want to get back to waking up early and enjoying my slow mornings before the work rush begins!

5. START BACK POSTING ON INSTAGRAM // Instagram has definitely been the platform I've been the most hesitant to jump back into since returning to TCD, and I've been really slow starting back. In the last few months, I've started to post more on Instagram Stories, even creating a few highlights and showcasing some things that are important to me! But I want to find the motivation to post more photos to my feed. So, if you have any advice or suggestions on content you'd like to see, let me know!


So, that's it! My goals for March! They're a mix of personal and blog goals, and I think that they're gonna be hard to accomplish! Let's do it! 

What are your goals for this month?

  4. Ugh posting on instagram consistently has been SUCH a struggle for me lately. I am excited to see your posts though, you are always so creative and post such pretty content! I am also trying to eat cleaner this month, with room for some splurges here and there of course.
