After a positive start in January, here’s a look at how I got on in February with my ten New Year’s Resolutions.
1-Start to exercise more
I didn’t get to go to the gym or do much exercise in February due to late work finishes and a holiday. However, I’ve just started getting back into the habit of exercising.
February wasn’t a great month for healthy eating. What with Valentine’s and Pancake Day, as well as eating out on holiday, I pretty much ate what I wanted. I’ve started to get back into a healthier eating pattern, so March should be a better month for me.
3-Read one book per month
A resolution that I’ve done well on! In February I finished two books, meaning I’m up-to-date with my aim to read one book per month. I read:
-Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2016
-Lonely Planet Iceland
4-Watch 50 films with my partner
In February we watched two films. They are:
-Eat Pray Love (DVD)
-Fifty Shades Darker (Cinema)
5-Getting into a better sleeping pattern
I had good and bad moments with my sleeping pattern last month. I think it’s something that will take the whole year to properly work on.
6-Do 2 new things per month
In February I did and saw a lot of new things on my holiday to Iceland.
I saw the Northern Lights for the first time.
I had a spa day at the Blue Lagoon.
I saw waterfalls.
And so much more. I’ll be doing a series of posts all about my holiday to Iceland soon.
7-Visit three new places (Country, City, Town or Village)
In February I visited Iceland for the first time and stayed in the capital city Reykjavik.
8-Start learning to drive
I haven’t started to learn to drive yet, but in the next couple of months I’m hoping to start lessons.
9-Use up what I have before buying more
I’ve done really well on this as I received a lot of makeup and bath bits for Christmas and Valentine’s Day. I also won a giveaway and did a product swap with the blogger Stashy, so I already have a lot to try out.
10-Take time to enjoy life’s simple pleasures
Despite a busy month, I did focus on being grateful for the small things in life. In Iceland I took time to appreciate the culture, nature and beauty that surrounded me.
Let me know how you’re getting on with your New Year’s Resolutions.
