It’s finally my favorite season of the year, and I’m so excited for sweaters, loving that football is back, and downing some homemade salted caramel mochas. (Sorry, I like them better than pumpkin. Yes, I went there.) I love the feeling of newness that comes with fall – I almost feel like there’s a reset button. It probably comes from all those years starting school in the fall, but Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) is this coming weekend as well. On that note, I wanted to set some goals for myself for the fall!
Lose 15 pounds by Thanksgiving. Of course, I start with the hardest one. I slacked a bit in my eating and exercise this summer, and I desperately want to get down to my goal weight. 15 pounds equates to about 5 pounds a month, which is totally doable. Plus, we’re taking our family pictures on November 22, and I want to have an excuse to buy some new clothes for that!
Continue to blog a minimum of 3 times each week. We have a crazy busy schedule these next few months, but I love that I’ve gotten in a routine and I want to stick to it. It also helps my mood when I have the time to write.
Do something active on my lunch break every day. Fortunately, with all the errands I’ve had to run lately, I’ve been doing really well with this. There are two malls and a few shopping centers near my office, so even walking around window shopping helps. I’ve been much closer to meeting my WW activity goal for the day when I do this. Also, once I find my gym bag, I may start utilizing the gym in my office on lunch breaks – walking on a treadmill gives some activity and won’t make me need a shower afterward. Every little bit helps!
Clean/unpack for 15 minutes each day. There are still boxes lying around from our move. Our bathrooms REALLY need a deep cleaning. Enough said.
Celebrate my 30th birthday! I’m less than two months from 30 now (October 22, if you’re curious), and I’m half scared, half excited for this milestone. I feel like I’m in a good place in my life, and am excited to celebrate my first birthday with my little girl.
