Goals might have to slow down this time of the year to keep things realistic. Or I might change them to things I know I can do like decorate trees and eat cookies. Before we set new goals let’s take a look at how we did in October.
Continue blogging 4-5 days a week.
Participate in the Count Down to Halloween Link-up weekly
Launch a new blog design by the end of the month
Participate in a new link-up
Things have been pretty busy around here so posts have not been an issue. I managed to join the Count Down to Halloween link up 3 out of the past 4 times, so I’ll call that good. My new blog design launched mid October, a couple weeks earlier than I expected, I LOVE it. As for new link-ups I began co-hosting a monthly educational blog hop/link up, Teaching Together. Our first month was a blast and we would love to have you join us for round two on November 5th!
Exercise at least 5 days a week
Begin and complete Stage 5 of the new rules program
*Try again to keep a written food journal
Complete The Pumpkin Run
I have officially resigned the idea of food journaling. At this season in my life, it just isn’t for me. I’ll talk more about why when I finally update on some fitness stuff later this month.
I think most weeks I hit the 5 workouts per week goal. As for the ‘New Rules” program I am half way done with stage 6 and expect to finish the last stage in early December. The Pumpkin Run was so much fun. It was great to run a race again, it had been way to long.

Try to make connections at a church we have decided to attend weekly
Keep up weekly meetings with Sarah
I read a chapter or two and met with Sarah a couple times. We need to meet again soon though. I think we have decided that meeting every other week is more realistic for us right now.
Making real connections isn’t really my thing. I always feel so awkward around people I don’t know well so I end up talking a lot, which I am sure can make me appear annoying. I did attend a womens event so I am putting forth effort. UGH! It will all work out. These things just take time. I know, I know.
Stay on track with lesson plans
Plan one field trip
Plan a fun picnic lunch
Not only are we on track, we are one week ahead in math! But don’t tell a certain 7 year old that. A field trip that involves a picnic lunch is planned I am just hoping the weather cooperates!
Fun photo shoot with Anna
Decorate for Halloween
Make Halloween costumes
*Stay on top of keeping the budget done, weekly!
Weekly budget balancing, ugh. I think in order to stay on track with that someone would have to use drastic measures and force me to do it every week. I thought making it a goal would help, no luck.
My photos with Anna were a blast. Decorations were made and put up and Halloween costumes will be shared tomorrow!
I’d say October was a success!
