October Goals and Mantas
“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers” – Anne Shirley, Anne of Green Gabels
Hello friends! Happy October! I’m not even going to talk about how fast September went by. Instead I’m going to focus on October. I really enjoy this month, it’s when the leaves really change here, we get some of my favorite weather and I’ve learned to love Halloween more now that Ollie is old enough to enjoy it. I think it’s going to be a good month. Today I’m going to look at my goals from September and how I did and share my goals and mantras for October. I’m hosting this link up with my Peaceful Posse sistas, Charlotte and Lindsay. Join us if you have a goal post for the month! Anyway, let’s look back at September.
~Clean up the basement – I’ll give this a check mark, we have a little more tidying up to do, but we got rid of a sewing machine, put away Nate’s drums and overall it’s in pretty good shape. ~Finish kegging the beers – DONE! We have five beers ready to go. I’m getting so excited for our party this weekend. ~Get organized for the JBF sale – YES! I did so well with my little tagging gun. I’ll never do it any other way. ~Start getting ready for the Collective Market sale – Yes, although I’m going to take some things to Style Encore first and if that goes well I may pull out of the Collective Market sale. It’s kind of close to Oktoberfest and I didn’t realize that when I signed up.
~Visit the apple orchard – Nope. I’m sad about this, we had weather woes and headcolds and it just didn’t work out yet. We still have time to make this happen though before Fall is over.
~Pass my Wellness test at work to earn extra days off – YES. But, it was a close one. More thoughts will be in this month’s goals.
Get back on track with my 100 Dreams Project – Yes! I got another post up, so I call this a win.
I think I did pretty well on my goals for this last month. I think it helps that I set myself up for success and didn’t choose anything that was too much to handle. Now on to the goals for October.
~Workout three days a week
~Strength train five days a week
~Go to the pumpkin patch
~Figure out and make Ollie’s Halloween costume
~Go to the apple orchard
~Make some Fall crafts with Ollie
~Bake some Fall themed goodies
~Go on a date with Nate
So, I’m really going to be focusing on getting back into shape this month. My wellness test at work was a bit of a wake up call that I’m not taking care of myself physically as well as I can. My word of the year is “nourish” and I’ve really been focusing on my mental health as part of that. I’m doing well with my mental well being, so it’s time to focus a little more on nourishing my physical self. I’ve started a “tabata” routine, a ten minute set of exercises where you work hard for 20 seconds and rest for 10 seconds. Also, Nate’s been doing some light weight lifting, so I’ve joined him and have been doing that with him as well. I’m not looking to lose a ton of weight, I’m almost 37 and this is my body and I accept it, but I can still take better care of it.
My other goals are just to have some Fall fun! We were so consumed with getting ready for our Oktoberfest and then as I said, headcolds and weather got in the way a bit of us doing a lot in September for fun, that we just really need to step it up this month. Nate and I also didn’t get a date night in September, so we’re committed to scheduling one this month. So anyway, my mantras this month will be focused on getting my booty in gear so to speak with working out and also to try to have more fun!
Let’s make it a great month everyone! Feel free to link any goal posts up with us below!
