Inside: What I accomplished on my September goals and my goal plan for October.
It’s hard to believe we are already starting into the last three months of this year. It seems like this year really went by quickly. We’ve gotten back into our regular school schedule and things are going well.
Now it’s time to start to get ready for the holidays. I like to get an early start so I have more time to do baking in November and early December.
The Goal Plan for October
This month I’ll be working on 5 main areas. Home Projects, Healthy Habits, Blog Growth, Family Time, and Using my Online Calendar. I’ve updated the progress I made on each goal as well as my plans for this month too. I would love to have you share in the comments below what your goals are for this month.
I was able to finish the last of the painting I had to do on the house. The only areas left are up really high, which I can’t do on my own. We need to borrow a 25-foot ladder to reach those areas and my husband doesn’t want me working in those areas when he isn’t home to help. I’m hoping we can finish this project up while my husband is on vacation this month, if it’s not raining.
The weather has turning cooler and we are doing less outside and more inside for our family time. This past month we were blessed with a few days that were really nice and we spent time outside planting our fall garden and doing a few other things.
This month we will spend our family time watching movies or playing games. If there is a good day here and there we might get outside to do a few things in the garden too.
I continued exercising regularly with the kids. I was able to get in 15 minutes of exercise 4 days a week. I also was able to limit eating after dinner to only once in a while, which ended up being about 1 night a week. That was a big improvement for me and it cut down on my calorie intake without me feeling I had really cut back at all.
This month I’ll continue exercising with the kids 4 days a week and keep working on cutting back on my eating with smaller meals and less or smaller snacks.
I’ve been working through a blogging course and I’ve kept up with all of the lessons. But for my blog design, I only made a new logo. I’m still working on the rest of the design which is taking me forever. But with slow steady progress, I’m hoping to get it done soon.
Organizing my Time
I’m continuing to use my online calendar. It’s an adjustment for me but I’m trying. I started writing out my to-do list each day and prioritizing it too. I think it’s helping.
I’m going to try using a notebook to write down the tasks I need to get done each day, this is a something I learned this month. I’m hoping with the notebook and the reminders on that come through my calendar I can get a good system down for tracking what needs to be done each day.
Those are my 5 main goals for this month. I’ve been keeping on track with my goals using the steps I learned in the Make Over Your Year Course (affiliate link) It has really helped me to break down my goals into steps for each week and each month to reach my goals. So far it’s been going really well this year.
If you need to set goals of your own I would definitely recommend Crystal’s Make Over Your Year course. You don’t have to wait for the new year to start to make over your year, you can start today!
