Make a Habit / Break a Habit Link Up

The Pinnacle Project

I’m participating in the Make A Habit / Break A Habit Link Up (with Lauren at My Passion Journey and Britt of The Pinnacle Project) again this month.

February Re-Cap

Habits to Make – January

  1. Substitute unhealthy snacks for healthier options – nope cannot be done! I do try though but boy it’s difficult!
  2. Substitute my tea for decaff tea – DONE-ISH! I’ve managed it at home but still not quite at work since they don’t provide decaff tea. I have asked for them to buy me a box though so hopefully I’ll have cracked it next month!

Habits to Break – January

  1. Biting my nails – DONE! As evidenced by this photo! Ok they might not be the prettiest nails but they’re way better than they used to be!
  2. Leaving my desk untidy – my desk is currently full of bits of paper and files and I really need to start filing more often!

Habits to Make – February

  1. Make my own lunch to take to work – saves a bit on the pennies! – DONE! Well mostly at least. I now take my own lunch 4 days a week and have been pretty consistent. I may have lapsed one week in February but that’s only because I was out on audit.

Habits to Break – February

  1. Leaving the dirty dishes overnight – yes I am that lazy! – DONE! I really didn’t have an excuse for not doing them since we have a dishwasher!

March Goals

Habits to Make

  1. Brushing my teeth and Little Miss’ teeth twice a day – I already brush them once a day but really I ought to be doing it twice a day
  2. Cross-stitching for at least 30mins everyday – especially since I have a project that needs completing ASAP!
  3. Plan meals ahead for the week – which should see me break a habit also!

Habits to Break

  1. Eating unhealthy snacks – must cut out the chocolate!!
  2. Leaving my desk untidy
  3. Leaving junk mail all over the house
  4. Wasting food – this is linked to the Habits to Make above

How about you? Is there anything you want to achieve this month?

    Leaving mail all over the place is something I need to stop once we move! And I also need to try and keep my desk tidy since I’ll be using it to work every day.

    Well done on the nails… I know how hard it is!

      I’m not sure why I leave post everywhere. It’s all junkmail anyway! Should really just be putting it straight into the recycling.

      I think I might have an easier time with the nails whilst I’m pregnant. Apparently you get stronger nails whilst pregnant! I’ve had to cut mine back now though. So not used to having long nails!

    These are great goals! Way to go on the dishes. If I wake up to a dirty, full sink in the morning, I am already off to a bad start. I’m linked up at the make-it break-it party too. Following on g+

      Well the dishes was getting on my nerves! I really didn’t have an excuse considering we have a dishwasher! Thanks for following!

    I, too, am trying to make twice a day brushing a thing. I never built that habit as a child, and I think I really need to start.
    Good luck!

      I did do it as a child but seem to have forgotten it as I grew up!
