A new month, a new set of monthly goals.
In October I will…
Get to bed by 11p. I’m a perpetual night owl and while Ethan is sleeping through the night finally, Adam and I tend to stay up late doing work, puttering and sitting in front of the TV which I hate. Needless to say, I want to make sure I focus on getting to bed early all month. So far…I have not been successful. But! I have time to shape up!
Run 40 miles. I did horrible with training last month. I’m not focusing on a half since deferring and after the 10 miler, most of my races I have on tap for the rest of the year are 5 and 10k races. So 40 miles should be doable if I can fit in at least 10 miles each week.
Make my home festive. I want to celebrate Halloween with Ethan – I know it won’t matter since he’s so little, but I want to decorate and make things festive around these parts. I’m not sure where to start so I think I need to pin a whole bunch of awesomeness and go from there.
Get 2/3 of the way through the 100 pushup Challenge. I keep starting but rarely make it through the first week. I finally want to get through week #1 and down to week #4 by the end of the month.
Try four new seasonal recipes. Should be easy – that’s one new recipe each week. I want to make these one night this week since i have a spaghetti squash left and I want to try to make a roasted pumpkin soup sometime soon!
How’d I do in September?
Eat more locally. We did m’eh on this. My trip to SC threw everything off but I did get a whole bunch of squash’s from Larriland farms recently that were delicious and gave us ~4 meals! I could have done better but I’ll give myself a C+ on this one.
Six Stroller Strides Classes. Check!
Stick with long runs. Nope. Nope, nope, nope. Thus. The deferral.
Give up the Dr. P. Close to check. I’ve stopped ordering them every day – I’m not fully off the caffeine, but I have cut back. And by cut back I might have been relying more on Starbucks caramel frappuccinos. So maybe not as close as I thought.
What are your goals for October? Intentions?
