Motivational Monday: Monthly Goal Wrap-up

The first month of the year is gone, just like that. I don’t know about you, but that didn’t feel like a whole month!

 

BOSSBABE

In the beginning of January, I set a few goals for myself and hoped to achieve them all. Well, I am happy to say that I did! If you are curious to know what they were, I am about to share them with you.

 

My first goal was to start Wedding and Event Planning blog posts here at the Bakersfield Beauty Blog. So far I have two Wedding Wednesday’s posted and they did quite well!

My second goal was to hit 1,650 followers on my Instagram page. Once that goal was achieved, I then set a goal for 1,700 followers and we currently stand at 1,709. I still can’t believe it! If you’re not following me, you totally should be! I am going to be doing a giveaway very soon! You know what, I will even do you a favor and leave the link right here for you! I know, I am such a nice person.

Goal number three was to take social media photos for two companies. Goal checked off! I had so much fun doing it too!

This last goal, I have been working on for quite some time now. I can’t even begin to tell you how I feel. This goal was to collaborate with Torrid. Yes, you heard right, Torrid. I still don’t believe it, when I received the email, I was almost in tears. The collaboration isn’t up, but be expecting it!

 

That wraps up all of my goals that have been achieved! I would love to hear some of the goals that you achieved for the month of January! I also would like to let you know how much I appreciate you!

 

Stay Beautiful!

 

Start 2018 Off Right: 5 NEW HABITS FOR THE NEW YEAR

They say that it takes 66 days to create a habit.

HABIT NUMBER ONE – WAKE UP EARLY

This habit is very hard for me, I love sleeping in until 10am or 1pm (shhh). I always tell myself that I am going to wake up two hours earlier every day and guess what never happens. So to trick myself, I will set my alarm 30 minutes earlier, than the two hours earlier. That way I don’t really notice the difference. Little by little I will keep adding the 30 minutes until I reach my goal hour. My goal is to be a morning person, and you bet you ass that’s happening this year!

HABIT NUMBER TWO – DRINK MORE WATER

Honestly, I have been drinking more water and I feel amazing. My skin has cleared up, I have been in a better mood, and my hair feels so soft! Water does the body good. The best way to drink more water is to carry an adorable water bottle around. That way drinking water is exciting.

HABIT NUMBER THREE – EXERCISE

This one is an obvious habit that needs to take place in 2018. I have downloaded a couple of workout apps, that way the work-outs are already there, no thinking. I will set alarms for working out, even if it is for 15 minutes a day. Something is better than nothing. #squatlife

HABIT NUMBER THREE- EATING HEALTHIER

I hate to say it, but it’s time to give up pizza. Meal prepping for the week is actually a lot easier than you think. Before the week starts, I will go to the grocery store, find some healthy and delicious recipes, cook, and separate. It really is that easy. I even bought some cute containers to make meal prepping fun.

HABIT NUMBER FOUR- READ

In order to create a reading habit, I will read 10 pages a day. If I tell myself that I am only going to read 10 pages, I will get into the book and won’t stop there! Before I know it, I will be done with a book in a few days.

HABIT NUMBER FIVE- SET GOALS

Setting goals are so important to me, they help me get a better idea of where my life is going. Every day I am going to write down a different set of goals; yearly goals, monthly goals, weekly goals, and daily goals. If I am constantly writing them down, I am constantly reminding myself of the badass that I am going to be!

 

 

I hope that you are just as excited about the new year as I am. I would love to know some of your habits that you are going to create this year. Do me a favor, share this blog post with someone that needs some inspiration for creating habits. As soon as I hit 2,000 I am going to be hosting a huge giveaway, so make sure that you spread the word. As always, stay confident!
