October 2017 Goals

I've been waiting for fall for quite some time. September was so full of events, so I'm hoping October brings a bit more calm and cozy nights and weekends. I'm also going to give the no-shopping-for-the-month another shot, since last month wasn't too difficult. And of course, I'll continue tackling my fall bucket list too!

WHAT I READ IN SEPTEMBER:

REVISITING MY GOALS FOR SEPTEMBER:

  • Run more miles than I ran last month (34+ miles) - Not trying to come up with excuses, but I had an awful cold for the last week of September and did not move one bit.
  • Put together an emergency preparedness plan - We actually did this! I'd still like to add a few more items to the box, but we could definitely survive an emergency with what we have.
  • Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day - I was really bad at tracking this, so I'm going to give it another shot.
  • Plant new veggies for fall harvest - We did not do this, but we did build a fence and have continue to harvest our summer tomatoes and peppers. That has to count for something.
  • Start (and finish) our marriage prep course program - We'll give this a try this month since we have about 9 weeks to go until wedding day.

OCTOBER GOALS:

  • Run more miles than I ran last month (9+ miles)
  • Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day
  • Start (and finish) our marriage prep course program
  • Put together my work and home DIY Halloween costume
  • Have a successful bachelorette party in Nicaragua

There are a lot of last month's goals that carried over but I'm really hoping that I can get it together this month and complete them. 

Fall 2017 Bucket List

Fall is slowly becoming my favorite season. It means crisp mornings with a soft knit sweater and a warm drink in hand. Since tomorrow is the first day of Fall, I'm sharing my bucket list for the season. 

Fall 2017 Bucket List

  • Pumpkin carving — because tis the season
  • Make a fall weath
  • Kayak trip
  • Bake a homemade pie
  • Farmer's market haul for fall veggies
  • Host Friendsgiving 

September 2017 Goals

After a much needed mini vacation and a bit of extra time on my hands, I decided to start documenting my monthly reads and goals. Hopefully, this will help me stay on track see progress (or lack thereof) throughout the year. And don't worry. I'll keep it short and sweet.
