I guess where I'm going with all this is my October goals ended up being kind of a joke, I write them down & do more frequent check-ins with myself to make sure I'm on track, but, that's been pretty much a NOPE all around. I hate to admit it, I probably could have tried harder at a few of these, but just didn't. In my world, that means it's time to regroup, set myself up for some easy wins & not make crazy goals since the holidays are coming.
Even if I didn't crush my goals, I'm here to be honest, so this is me, checking in with how well I didn't do in October. If you missed my original October goals post, you can find it here.
Celebrate 2 years | Nailed it
I'd say this one was the one we managed to really rock. Like literally. Our 2 year celebration ended up with me and a ring on my finger. And a great long weekend worth of hiking & exploring.
Jump into 5K training | FAIL
I didn't start, I haven't registered for my 2 x 5K (though I still intend to) & I don't think I ran 3 x per week a single time in October.
Decorate the MacMod estate | Pass
We hung up one picture, though it's huge & is my absolute favorite. A print of the US made up of license plates. And a coffee sign in the kitchen. We're still sorting through frames and prints for the rest, but, I'm actually going to consider this a win because we're making progress. I had grand illusions that we'd hang everything on the walls in one afternoon & then our house would look like it leapt off the pages of HGTV magazine. Which is silly, because 1. Hanging pictures is tough shit & 2. None of our artwork looks like it belongs anywhere near HGTV.
80,000 steps per week | Fail
I didn't even hit 70,000 steps most weeks, I hit 80,000 the first week of October & it has been downhill since.
Track all meals in MFP | 30%-ish
I tend to not bother attempting to track when I'm eating meals out or drinking more alcohol than normal. It's just a pain to do, and if I'm going to eat the damn food anyways, I tend to have a "why bother" mentality. I've been back on track since getting back from Roanoke. I like it as a tool to help me plan healthy meals for Mr. Sass & I.
What am I going to work on in November?
Jump into 5K training | Like for real this time. Time to put up or shut up. I'm running out of time.
Unpack // Trash 2 more boxes | I live here now. It's fairly permanent. We don't have any plans to pick up and move in the next few years, so it's safe to unpack. Clearly I don't need anything that's in those boxes or I would have unpacked them already. But I can handle 1/2 box per week. Unpack it or pitch it.
Send out Save The Date's | I would like if people actually showed up to our wedding.
Maintain Weight | This one is
That's it - simple, to the point, get that 'ish done goals.
What are some of your November goals?
