March Goals | Winter 2023

You guys, it’s March 2023! I’m feeling excited to see what this month brings, but I’m also a bit overwhelmed. There’s so much I need to do and the days are flying by! It feels like I barely have enough time to check in with everyone and make sure you are doing well. To be completely honest, I’m still unsure if I will continue with these blog posts in the foreseeable future or not, but for now I will try to stay consistent. These monthly goal blog posts go hand-in-hand with my daily updates of what my life is like, which I will continue to post on Twitter. If you’d like to follow me and get a glimpse into what my day is like, please feel free to click the following link:

Turning Over a Renewed Leaf

This is not exactly a new season or month for me, instead, it is more of a continuation of the last two months in terms of my monthly goals. I have made some small adjustments to my diet and have been exercising regularly, so I am not making any drastic changes or starting a new diet, etc. In fact, I intend to remain consistent with my current habits and continue to make subtle improvements that will help me ultimately achieve my goals. This month is a particularly busy one for me, as I am juggling my work commitments and parenting responsibilities, while also trying to get ready for an upcoming vacation next month. The pressure of having to finish all of these tasks in a timely manner while still having the time and energy to prepare for the trip is causing me a considerable amount of stress and anxiety. Unfortunately, I cannot provide you with any details about my travels yet, but I can assure you that I won’t be very active on social media while I’m away. All I can say is that my destination is a warm and sunny place! 🏝️

  • Publish 1-2 articles on Medium + share articles on blog

And there you have it! My goals this month are very similar to those of last month, with an emphasis placed on getting fitter and healthier so I can feel more comfortable in my own body and potentially even wear my pre-pregnancy clothes again. My goal is to build a positive self-image, not only in regards to physical appearance, but also for my mental health. It is not only about accepting your body but also feeling good about it and not waking up every morning with self-hatred. Mental and physical health are equally important and should be given priority in order to achieve inner peace.

I am curious to know what your goals are for the month of March. Feel free to let me know in the comments section below ↓ Also, I would really appreciate it if you followed me on Twitter (@serene_hilz), that is, if you aren’t already a follower. Though it is often a struggle to gain traction on that platform, I still find it really enjoyable to establish connections with fellow bloggers.

Thanks for stopping by! ♥

    Wishing you a lovely March & vacation. Don’t ruin the surprise but I do hope that warm sunny place is Jamaica 🙂 for me, March will be a month of home renovations + moving. I just closed a sale for my first home. It’s a fixer upper but shows promise. Hoping to complete each project with as little anxiety and stress as possible

      Hi Rochelle! Thanks for catching up with me. Sadly, it’s not Jamaica. I would love to visit Jamaica one day – it looks lovely! Similar to Jamaica, it is an island located near the equator ☀️🌴

      Congratulations! That is exciting that you purchased your first home! It’s an exciting time. Fixer uppers can be stressful but rewarding at the same time. You can personalize your home add the Rochelle touch to it. It would be cool to see some of your home reno projects! 🙂

        Tbh I didn’t make a blog post about our last vacation because I don’t have much photo storage on here. The plants are so pretty and photogenic and I would be posting a hundred photos if I could lol This might be a good opportunity to post again on IG which I haven’t used in years.

        P.S. for DIY project ideas, I highly recommend looking at Pinterest. There’s lots of great ideas to be found there. Good luck on your home Reno projects! 🙌

    March goals? The same as any other month… Make it to the next month. Lol. March so far has busted in with a roar! Yesterday a snow storm and today, clear blue skies in which to view the snow capped mountains. Busy person you are and you deserve some time in a warm place.

      I’m leave for vacation near the end of the month but I’m working a lot this month. There’s not much time for anything else. I’m trying to post monthly goals each month – and yes they are repetitive! I figure they might be a bit boring for my readers, but it keeps me accountable if anything. Thanks for reading!

      Thank you! So far I broke the first goal and missed a day of work… I felt so dead and burnt out. Also, I haven’t been sleeping because of a chronic cough. On Sunday, I was like “nope, not today.” I was naughty but at the same time, I rather not be coughing at work. Friday and Saturday were bad because I was symptomatic and staff were like, “are you okay?” I guess I wasn’t okay. I’ve had this cough for a very long time now…. Sunday was more of a “I need a break” day than anything.
