Just like that it’s October. It’s Halloween month, pumpkin time, and HOPEFULLY cooler, crisper weather. Today I am sharing my October Goals, as well as a look back on how I did with September! Let’s get to it!

October Goals

October Goals

In September I wanted to…

  • Read 4 books: I read 3 so it was better
  • Have 2 more dates with Andrew: Well we did manage to get it in RIGHT under the wire. We went to dinner Saturday night for the first time since Liam was born. One is better than none!
  • Decorate for Fall: Yes we did that Labor Day Weekend! I love the way our house looks.
  • Go through my shoes and donate ones I don’t wear:Β Yes, I did that!
  • Re-fold items in our linen closet (driving me nuts): No, but I did manage to organize every single other thing in our house!
  • Keep up with working out and try to wean myself off tracking food but still eating well (close to my goal weight so I really want to try to not obsess over it): Yep, I stopped tracking but I’m still maintaining weight!
  • Try a new workout class at the gym: I did a new at home barre workout. Does that count?
  • Work on posting more to Instagram: I did post more! I want to do better though.
  • Write blog posts for October: Almost done!
  • Take Liam somewhere new in the city: This was a fail but we are taking him to the Arboretum and State fair the week after next!

In October I want to…

  • Read 4 books
  • Enjoy Halloween with Liam and Andrew
  • Take Liam to a pumpkin patch and the Arboretum
  • Keep up with workouts
  • Really focus on drinking more water
  • Work on Twitter growth
  • Get blog posts written and scheduled for November
  • Spend some time with my mom
  • Have 2 date nights with Andrew (it’s our wedding anniversary this month!)

      I love this. It inspires me to make a list of goals every month. Some l want to achieve are to take my sons somewhere we have never been before and start writing my e book!

      Your site is so cute! Also, I LOVE writing out goals!! I write out my goals for the year and put them on my site too.I have a list of monthly goals in my journal as well, and there is just something so powerful about putting goals to paper (or blog post πŸ˜‰ ). You can totally do all of this girl!

      I love these goal posts! I write down goals in my planner book and keep track that way, but this is even better. With October here, I have several for this month!

      Awesome that you are putting your goals out there, it really helps you want to be more accountable! One of my goals relating to my blog for October is to grow my pinterest…I really have put minimal effort into it so it’s time to shift my focus a bit. πŸ™‚

      Yay for another month of goals! You got this, good luck and cannot wait to see how you do by the end of the month. I am pretty confident you will meet or exceed your goals, you usually do pretty well!

    6. Katie

      Those are great goals for October! And I definitely think a new at home class counts even if it wasn’t the gym! It can be scary trying something new, especially when it comes to our fitness so that’s great!

      Wow, you managed to complete so many of your goals and your almost done writing for October, awesome! That’s my goal actually, to get all my October post written and scheduled.

      Sounds like it was a great September and you are going to have a great October. In October I want to spend more time reading to my kids and get out and enjoy the cooler weather, before it gets to cold!

      I love your site! This is the first Blog that I that I have subscribed to and I am excited so far! I am starting to write my goals down and it makes it seem like a challenge for me as well as being more accountable for myself. My hubby and I have our anniversary this month as well, and hopefully we will be able to go out on a date! Happy Anniversary to you and Andrew!
