February Goals and Highlights
Happy February friends! Even though this is the shortest month of the year, it always seems to last forever. Let's see if that's still the case this year! January for me was a very meh month- I'm still staying in and really only left my house for my daily walk and occasional run. I managed to only make one grocery store trip, and also dropped off a few items to donate or sell (see that below!). Otherwise, it was a cold month so I was happy to have an excuse to stay in, especially when I started to feel a little sickness coming on.
My highlight of the month has to be the Inauguration. I thought it was a really beautiful ceremony- I loved all of the bold fashion choices, the musical acts that were chosen, and the poem by Amanda Gorman. I'm not usually an emotional person, but I definitely shed some tears when Kamala Harris got sworn in - it seems like such an important and huge step in our country's history. This graphic really put things into perspective for me-
And now I'm feeling inspired and ready to take on a new month! But first- a look at how I did with my January goals-
No Dairy January
I got rid of SO much this month! I didn't really follow the schedule of getting rid of 1 item on January 1, 2 items on January 2, etc...I went room by room and got rid of a ton of stuff in each room. I sent off my clothes to Thred Up, sold some books and DVDs to Half Priced Books, and dropped off donations to a local thrift shop. It feels great to have more space in my drawers and cabinets!
Try All the Signature Series
I did pretty well with this goal but didn't completely finish... all of the series that happened live I was able to join, but didn't fit in all of the classes to my schedule. I was able to cross off all the series except for XOXO, Cody (which kept getting cancelled) and Cultivating Courage. Will make sure I get these in soon!

Get Ready to Sell!
I definitely took some good strides in this area in January. I finished repainting the final room in our house- the basement! Dan also built a new box around our water shutoff valve- about a week after we moved in we noticed a leak, so someone came in to replace the valve and had to break up the box (and part of the drywall) and we just now fixed it. Soooo much better and I wish we did this years ago! I wish I got a "before" so you could really see how bad it was, but it's beautiful now thanks to Dan.

28 Days Challenge
I like to borrow magazines from my library (I find them on the Overdrive app which is connected to my local library), and in January's Good Housekeeping I found a challenge that promised 28 Days to Change Your Life! You can find out more about it here, and I'll also be sharing each day on Instagram and wrap it up with a post at the end of the month. There are a lot of fun challenges and nothing that is too intense, so I'm really looking forward to it!
A few weeks ago, I ordered a planner. It's been a few years since I kept one, but I was having a hard time keeping my workouts organized and kept missing live rides that I wanted to do since I had no where to mark them down! So, I decided to order the Passion Planner, which has been AMAZING. This month, I decided to print out a habit tracker to add in the monthly spread and want to work on each of these little goals in February. Here's hoping this will be super colorful by the end of the month!
