It’s the start of a new month which means it’s time to talk about the last month, which means multiple posts wrapping up the previous month, this time we start with my overall wrap-up of the month of September and my goals for the month of October. I can’t believe it’s already October again, this year seems to be flying by, the month of September was gone so quickly, it was like a blink of an eye.
September wasn’t a particularly exciting month but it was a pretty busy month, which I think is some of the reason why it seemed to have gone by super quickly. The only thing that I can think of off the top of my head that was somewhat exciting this month was that I turned 24 during the month of September, which you can read all about here, that way I don’t bore anyone who has already read all about my birthday. I had a really great day.
Another thing that is somewhat exciting is I got my wedding dress back, it’s all altered and fits perfectly, I’m super happy that I decided to let it out a little bit instead of trying to fit in it, which I’m sure I could have, but now it fits pretty comfortably and I’m not itching to take it off. So, even if I actually do lose some weight, I will fit in it if I don’t as well which is nice. I did sit in it for the first time and I really can’t bend and there is so much fluff around me, but still, I’m happy with it and very excited to wear it shortly.
I’ve been working a lot this month, working a lot on my blog, cleaning and just the usual things really, there isn’t a whole lot of exciting things going on. As I’ve said probably way too many times, I’m pretty boring but I still like to keep up with things here in case there ever is something exciting for me to list.
Now, to talk a little bit about my goals from last month and how they went, let’s start with Driving, which is something I failed at yet again. I do not know what is wrong with me but I just don’t ever drive, I really need to push myself to drive more often but September wasn’t a good month for that apparently. Getting Ahead With My Reading Challenge, I’m so disappointed in myself, I was ahead for most of this month but as of right now I am on track, which is better than being behind but I was hoping to get ahead. Social Media, is something I think I’m endless going to be working on better myself at, but I think I’m doing alright with this one. Losing Weight I was doing so good, I had lost four pounds since the middle of August, as of the middle of September, but I fell off a bit and I’ve gained a little bit of the weight back so I have lost some but I’m not where I wanted to be. It’s just nice to have finally seen some change on the scale. Decluttering, I have done a really good job at this, I went through all of my makeup and now I’m working on going through it once more, a little more in depth this time.
Drive More. This one is returning because it is something that I really need to do and it’s going to be here until I actually start doing it, here’s to hoping October is the month of driving for me.
Read Five Books This Month. I want to challenge myself a little bit, though I did just get a bunch of graphic novels for my birthday so I’m not sure how much of a challenge it will really be, I want to read five books, which should put me ahead one book at the end of October.
Lose Five Pounds. This goal is back, it’s not the end of the world if I don’t and I’m not super focused on it, but I would love to lose five pounds this month.
Get Back To Working Out. I have fallen off the wagon a little bit during September, so it’s time to refocus and get back to working out six days a week, I know I have it in me, I just have to get back to it.
Continue Decluttering. I want to continue on with the decluttering and have a really in-depth look at my wardrobe this month, it might take some time but I’ve got all of October to finish it which I think will be plenty of time.
No Buy. I already know that I’m going to fail this, but then again maybe I won’t, I probably will but either way I’m going to attempt a no buy for the month and at the very least I’m hopefully going to fall into the category of a low buy.
Relax. I want to make sure to make time for myself to relax, so I’m hoping to do this once a week and hoping that it will help me out in the long run, because sometimes I just really feel overwhelmed and need to remind myself it’s okay to slow down.
And those are all of my goals for October, I think I did alright with my September ones and I think I’m going to crush the October ones, I can just feel it already. Here’s to a fabulous October!
How did September treat you guys?
