New Month // October Goals

October Goals
October! How are we here already? These months keep on flying by. I am pretty happy to be here though, I must say. I think that this month is going to be a good one. Things are a little busy with school, but my classes are pushing my creativity and I think that positive energy will spill over to my blogging life as well. We have a trip planned for the end of the month to attend a wedding and some fun things sprinkled in between. Plus, it is officially fall and what's not to love about that?!

Here's a recap of last month's goals and some goals for this month!
+ 30 Day Smoothie Challenge
I will admit, I did not make a smoothie every single day, but I did make them pretty often and am happy that I added that nutrition into my diet :)

+ Start my new job!
Check! I'm in my third week and things are going really well. I'm so much happier in this area of my life than I was just a month ago!

+ Create a budget.
Completed! I'm feeling pretty good about this and actually kind of responsible ;)

+ Consistently spend time reading/commenting on other blogs.
I really wish I did more of this! I'm still working at it, but I have been consistently reading blogs again like I used to. Now I just need to set aside the time to leave comments! 

+ Get back to blogging!
Still working on this one, but I have a pretty great month planned ahead!

+ Resume outfit photos!
I did one outfit post in September, but I've been inspired to do more and I think I have Dai on board to help me out with this again, so look out for more of those this month :)

+ Work out at least 2x per week.
Guys, this is something I am suuuuper awful at. I just don't make the time for it and then instead make excuses. Dai and I have both been wanting to be more consistently active and get our booties into shape. It is never too late and we should definitely start now! So, I'm gonna go ahead and give myself the realistic goal of working out at least 2x per week to start with.

+ Treat myself to a few new pieces of jewelry.
It's a new season and I would love to add a few new jewelry pieces to spice up my collection! Helloooo Forever 21 haha.

+ Drink 1L of water per day.
I love water, but I have noticed that I haven't been drinking as much as I should lately, so it is time to get back in the habit of that.

+ Spend time with family.
My family is very important to me and now that we are all a little more spread out we don't spend much time together. I would like to make an effort to do more of that this month!

+ Send a friend something in the mail.
It is always nice to get fun things in the mail and I always think about sending people things, but rarely do. Well, that changes this month!

What are your goals for this month?

Ahh! The water one's a good one. x_x I really need to drink enough water per day (+ also get back into a regular workout schedule again)!

Jess said...

I love lists! These are great goals! And most of them are totally fun, which helps! ;)

I love your goal to treat yourself to some new jewelry. Have you been to a Charming Charlie's? I think there's one in Berkeley... oh my gosh. Your life will never been the same. :) I also love the goal to mail something to a friend! Getting "fun" mail (you know, not a bill or advertisement) is always so exciting!

Jess said...

So glad that you are getting back into the swing of things...
I... am not... hahah its been like full time baby prep on this side - as D day is just around the corner... try less than 30 days away.

Here's to a memorable October, eh?

p.s. I'll shoot you an email with my address - as I know that I am the aforementioned friend ^
bahahahha just kidding.

Jess said...

Yay October! Pumpkins! Colorful leaves! I'm also awful at exercising regularly, and no, I never drink enough water. Good luck with the challenges!

Jess said...

Oooh what a fun series. I just did a list of 23 things I want to do before 24. This is a good alternative to do a mini goal lists. I like that the things you did were great goals but still reasonable.

Jess said...

Way to go girl. I always set work goals, but never personal. I need to do this!

Jess said...

I love the send a friend something in the mail goal! I think I will add that to my list too! Sending snail mail is fun.

Jess said...

I love that your goals are actually realistic. Some of these bloggers crack me up with "cook a new recipee every night bla bla bla" haha. And speaking of snail mail....;)
