January Goals!

So, today I'm just sharing my January Goals. But next week, if all goes to plan, I'll be sharing my goals for the year ahead. So keep an eye out for that if that's the kind of thing you're interested in! But for today, let's recap on December's goals and see how I got on with them before setting a few goals for the month ahead.

1. Spend time with family. Smashed this. Spent the Christmas period with family; Christmas Day at my in-laws and Boxing Day at my grandparents, where my mum joined us. 

2. Have a festive day out. Chris, his mum and I went to Cribbs Causeway in Bristol for a day of Christmas shopping. We had a blast, and even got to meet my grandparents for a coffee while we were there.

3. Take some time off work. I was kind of forced into this as a result of a serious chest infection that saw me put on steroids and antibiotics, but I had quite a nice break from work and blogging over the Christmas period.

So now, here's my goals for the month ahead. Self-care is my priority for January, as it can be a brutal month.

1. Have a Lush bath at least once a week. Baths are my 'safe space.' A guaranteed way for me to relax. I want to make sure I'm taking one at least once a week to give myself an hour window to relax and unwind this month. And also to use up some of my Lush stash; it's gotten pretty big again since I got the Lush Advent Calendar for Christmas from my husband!

2. Work out my monthly budget for 2020. One of my goals for 2020 is to not spend more than I can afford, and to reduce my debt considerably. But I can't do that if I don't know what I['m working with. So before payday in a few weeks, I need to work out my monthly budget for the next 12 months.

3. Eat all the Christmas chocolate. Yes, the diet's meant to have started already but who can diet when there's boxes of chocolates piled up everywhere. Gifts from well-meaning friends and family? So the plan is to get all the Christmas chocolate eaten this month and enjoy it, so we can go back to starving ourselves and being miserable in February!

So tell me, what are your goals for January?

  1. Great goals, Aimee! Glad you smashed them in December, and hope the New Year is a good one for you. I’m not sure what my goals are yet, but I will have a think. Sending my best wishes for 2020. :-) xx
