Goal update & Oct. Goals

Happy October! Can you believe we are here? I cannot believe we are already in the month of October! Time flies  by... I wanted to check in with my September goals and see how I did... I am not a huge goal person, but I always want to strive to live the best life possible and goal setting helps me stay focused...

Let's see how I did with my September goals...

Goal 1) To read an entire stack of books...

Goal not met..

Goal 2)  Spend time taking care of myself!
I have done much better at this.. Goal met! 

Goal 3) Spend more time with my husband.

Goal not met.. His job has been giving him tons of overtime.. It didn't happen this month..

Goal 4) Set up a better budget.

Set up a better budget, but haven't done much debt paying.. 

5) Spending more time with people and being less concerned about my personal agenda!
I can't say this has happened.. I try to be more present with people, but sometimes I can't slow down or my job does not get done... 

September Fitness Goals:

1) Get two long runs in for the month.. Would like to accomplish a 11 mile and 13 mile run! 

Did it!! Goal met!

2) Try out a Yoga class 

Goal met! 

3) Lose 3 pounds

Goal not met.
