OK… So I know its TECHNICALLY the second month of spring but not it is really beginning to feel like spring. The days are longer – bless daylight savings – and the weather is getting warmer! It really has a way of just improving your mood ten fold!
Now, onto my goals for October and how I went with achieving them….
- Complete the A to Z Reading Challenge
One that I am making progress on. I finally got another letter knocked out and will get at least one more done in November. Yay for reading progress!
- Post at lease 3 times a week
I have stayed really consistent with this over 2018 and I couldn’t feel prouder of that, next step is to really focus on WHAT I’m posting and then maybe move into posting even more frequently.
- Exercise 3 days a week
This is one I have 100% improved on. I was struggling to get to 3 days a weeks on September but have consistently hit 3 days and then some weeks even been able to do more!
- read 30 book in 2018
So I completed this goal and have upped it to 35! I’m currently sitting at 33 books with 2 books that I am currently reading so will most likely need to increase my goal before November.
- Try a new recipe each week
We really haven’t been good at this one, however we are starting to develop a list of meals to make because each week when we make our shopping list both of us seem to blank as to anything we can cook with what we have. So who knows maybe next month!
- Practise positivity and optimism
Things have been getting super stressful in the last month and a half both and home and work, I have been actively trying to focus on the positive and not let the stress overwhelm me. Although if I’m honest there has definitely been some stress cleaning and stress organising going on.
- Less technology more reading before bed
Ok so this is a goal I really do struggle with. I did do some reading last night while I ran an update on my computer, which I don’t think really counts.
- Focus on what I am putting in my body and work towards maintaining being gluten free and dairy free
I’ve definitely been better with this. I am working on having heathy weeks and then letting my self chill a little on the weekends. It is definitely a more maintainable approach for me.
Overall a pretty good month! What a great way to head into the end of the year!
How are your 2018 goals going?
