I wrote a post in September talking about my goals for the month. Now that it’s October (WOW) it’s time to look back and see how I did. I decided to only set 3 goals for September, I have been really busy so I wanted to set some “mini” obtainable in a month goals as opposed to more long term ones. To review, here are the three goals I made:
1.) Run 4 days a week
2.) Drink 8 glasses of water a day
3.) Stop negative thinking/pessimistic attitude
aaannnddd here is how I did:
1.) Run 4 days a week (A-) I did this all but one week, where I ran three times. I am happy to say I finally feel like I am starting to get back on track with my workouts. Let’s hope this trend continues and I stay injury free!
2.) Drink 8 glasses of water a day (A+) It has been very hot and humid, so this goal was pretty simple to follow. I think I drank nearly 8 glasses just during and after my runs! I only had a glass of sweet tea at dinner on Friday or Saturday nights, and other than that and sports drinks, it has been water all the way, and not going to lie my face has cleared up a LOT. I have always been that girl that struggles with acne her whole growing up, but between not wearing makeup every day and drinking lots of water, it’s looking pretty good!
3.) Stop negative thinking/pessimistic attitude (B-) Not going to lie, this is still tough for me. It kind of comes and goes in waves. I will do really well for a few days, and be really positive, then something will happen and send me into a temporary tail spin. I am really going to keep working on not letting little things set me off and ruin my day or week, and instead try to learn from the situations and use them as an opportunity for growth.
1.) PR in a half marathon. I have two halfs this month, the first I doubt I will PR in, but the 2nd, I think it’s possible if I continue to work hard to get back to where I was. Reason why I won’t PR in the first one…ok, I guess it’s time to spill the beans. I am going on a cruise right before the half marathon, so Bobby may have to roll be through the course. I am of course VERY excited about my trip (got a great deal!) but the half…oy.
2.) Actually make a craft from Pinterest. I always see and pin the cutest things (especially for the holidays!) but never actually make anything. I am so not crafty, it’s kind of sad. Must remedy this.
3.) Read a book. October is pretty crazy with travel, but reading a book relaxes me, and it also means I am taking time for myself, so this is a good goal for this wild month.
4.) Vlog more. I vlog here and there, but I want to do it a bit more consistently, at least once a week. I think that’s a good starting point.
