February Goals Update & Goals for March

At this point, if you’re a regular reader, you have seen how crazy my February was and how much I was away from home. Therefore it should be no surprise to anyone that I FAILED MISERABLY AT MY FEBRUARY GOALS.

Monthly Goals | Perks of Being a JAP | www.perksofbeingajap.com

As a reminder, I set both yearly goals and have been setting monthly goals for myself. Here’s how (badly) I did:

Use a face mask once a week (at least) – I did this once. I don’t even remember what mask I used… I think it was a Nugg mask? I do use a Lush Cup O’ Coffee mask often to wake up my under eyes but I don’t really count that as full face masks.

Fix five things – BIG OLE FAIL. I actually tried to fix my favorite American Eagle jeans that had ripped at the thigh but it failed after one more wear. The “To Fix” drawer is still full. ๐Ÿ™

Drink water every day – I’m actually going to give myself a decent mark on this one. When I was home or at work I made sure to drink at least 40oz of water every day. HOWEVER, I’ve learned when I am not stationary or I don’t have a decent water bottle with me this goal is harder to hit. So I’m going to make sure to have a good bottle with me at all times. (I love this one, but need a travel one I can throw in a bag too – something like this?)

Don’t let the house get crazy – Ehhhh small pass. The house wasn’t TOO crazy and I definitely helped myself by keeping on top of the laundry throughout the month and my crazy travel schedule. Still need to do a deep clean though!

Now onto March goals and hopefully better results!

March Goals:


Try to accomplish some of the February goals I missed – Mainly fixing five things and continuing to drink water daily.


Make something โ€“ I like to think that I’m pretty creative but I don’t have an outlet (outside of this blog.) While I’m not very artistic I like to make things with my hands so I want to make something. I love making macrame bracelets and I purchased this subversive cross stitch book and supplies awhile ago but haven’t touched them.


Organize my recipe binders โ€“ This is a relic from the pre-Pinterest days but I put recipes I have tried/want to try from magazines (and print outs) into binders separated by categories. I have to go through the binders and weed out old recipes I haven’t made/don’t want to try anymore and add in some new categories like InstantPot recipes, etc.


Institute Game Night โ€“ We love playing games but don’t do it often enough! We have always talked about having Game Nights but haven’t put it into practice. While our schedules won’t allow for them often, I want to try. We were able to sit down and play Zingo with Sadie last week and had a great time!


Try Yoga with Adriene – I have heard a lot of good things about the YouTube yoga program with Adriene and want to give it a shot!


Pause before speaking in anger/frustration – I have a bad habit of letting emotions get the best of me, and I speak out while in that state of mind and often regret it. I want to be able to remind myself, in the moment, to stop and think about what I am about to say before I say it.

How did your February goals go? Did you set new ones for March?

  1. Great goals! I have totally improved on water drinking thanks to a bottle marked with the hour of the day so I know when I need to drink. I recently reorganized my recipe binder! We do game nights on Friday nights usually! Good luck!

    • I’ve seen those water bottles with the hours but they’re usually wide mouth which I don’t like! So glad you guys have game night – we just need to make it a priority. Friday nights are a good idea as our weeknights are usually packed.

  2. I love the goal you set about organizing your recipe binder. I really need to do that! (Plus print out recipes I use frequently off Pinterest.) Good luck on your goals this month. You got this!
