A new month brings new goals!

October Goals/Dreams:

– Attend at least one yoga class per week.

– Celebrate my birthday in a meaningful way.

– Run my first 5k in about 3 years.

– Cook at least 2 dinners a week.

– Read 4 new books.

– Attend a sporting event.

– Run at least 60 miles this month.

– Spend much needed time with family.

– Continue to spend serious quality time with BF and the pups.

– Finally sort through my clutter from my move.

– Continue to stress less.

– Bake something new and adventurous!


Here’s a look back out my September goals/dreams:

– Finish the Couch 2 5k program and begin the Bridge to 10k program. Win! We finished mid-month!

Attend one yoga class at Cleveland Yoga per week. Almost win. I attended three classes. I was away in LA rather unexpectedly for one week, so I missed class that week.

Spend less time adding events to my planner and spend more time just living at home and spending quality time with BF and the pups. Most definitely a win. My priorities were very straight this month. Lots of QT with BF and the pups.

Cook more food at home and spend less time and money eating unhealthy food while I’m out. Definite win. And I actually cooked this month! I never cook. BF does. But we shared this responsibility well this month! In fact, I smell something delicious cooking now.

Go to the Akron Zips vs. Syracuse Orange football game. Lose. It rained that day, so we decided to stay inside that day. Not the worst thing that could happen, right?

Sort through the clutter from my moves and sell/giveaway the unused items. Lose. I didn’t find (or make) the time.

– Learn to utilize all that my Mac Book has to offer. Lose. I didn’t even begin to do this.

– Find direction and put together a plan. In my own way I most definitely did this.

Keep myself organized. I did OK at this. It could still use some improvement. Work in progress for sure.

– Read at least 4 new books. Lose. I didn’t even finish one! Ugh! Not cool.

– Stress less. Win. Definite win. I made every conscious effort to keep myself grounded and in the present. And it helped.

All of those goals sound great! I was just making my to-do list for the week and I hope to get a lot accomplished before our trip to Indiana this weekend 🙂
