October Goals

Today is the last day of September, which means I should probably look back and evaluate my progress and figure out what I need to focus on in October.  Here are my September goals, and how well, or not so well, I accomplished them:
1. Lose 8 pounds – Well, this was half accomplished, but to me that’s pretty good.  I lost 4 pounds, but definitely wish I would have lost 8.
2. Sing more often – So I really have only continued to sing in the car, and have failed to do the research to find a choir…but it’s still something I want to do!
3. Skype more – I can check this one off my list!  I have definitely skyped more, and hope to continue to do so.
4. Start training for RAGBRAI – TOTALLY! But again, not as hard as I wanted to.  But I love my bike and I love riding it, but we need to hang out together a little more often J
5. Make the most of every day – Yes and no.  Some days are great, and some days are still not so great.  But I am definitely trying.  And I am totally appreciating every moment and friend and family member I have been blessed with.

So here we go, October goals:
1. Join the Y, and use it at least 3 times a week
2. Lose 4-8 pounds – just being realistic!
3. Write more letters/cards
4. Weekly girls night – this is SO needed
5. Ride bike twice a week, one long ride, and at least one shorter (1 hour) ride.
6. Be able to run two miles by the end of the month – not necessarily 2 miles straight, I can walk in between, but I ran 1 mile the other day, broken up with a little walking, and now I want to work up to 2 miles.

As you can see, a lot of these are driven by trying to be healthier.  Any encouragement or suggestions you can give, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you so much and Happy October!!

  1. are you listening to music when you run? that will probably help you run farther without really thinking about it... Just listen to something fun and upbeat! :) Proud of you for being healthier! Inspiration for us to do the same!
