Thursday Thoughts: October Goals 2015

Good Morning Everyone, 

Happy October 1st! 

This year really is flying by but honestly I love the fall so I am very happy that we have arrived at this time of the year! 

Since it is a new month and since I've been needing to make some changes I decided that today I would share my monthly goals with you all. 

1) Make time for myself- This one is pretty big. If you read my confession post yesterday you probably know that I've been struggling with Mommy Guilt and feeling pretty bad about asking for any kind of help. However I know that it is in the best interest of my family and myself to start making a little time for just me. My mom offered to take Kyra a couple times a week so that I could go and workout for an hour and start getting her used to the idea that I don't have to be with her 24/7. 

2) Step up the blogging game- I felt like I slacked of in September a lot. I really didn't post that often and when I did they were just mostly fluff posts. So this month I am going to try and really put out some good content and blog everyday Monday through Friday this month. I hope to get one or two weekend posts up as well. 

3) Make a "big" goal list- I feel like I need to refocus on the things that I really want in life. Everyone needs to have a goal that they are working toward and I really feel like I need to figure out just what it is that I want and start making steps toward achieving those things. 

4) Make Meal Planning a priority- Budgeting is something that I am still learning but I know for a fact that meal planning makes all the difference in our budget and in my daily stress level. If I have a plan for dinner it feels like the rest of the day falls into place. 

5) Write- Write, Write, and Write some more. I felt like last month I was pretty much shut down in the creative/writing department. I need to get things moving again in my brain. I need that creative outlet. Even if what I write is never seen, even if it is pretty much crap, it won't matter. Any word written is better than the one not written. 

So there you have my goals for the month. Do you have any goals for the month? Is there something in particular that you are excited about taking on? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I'm feeling a little creative this week. I should channel that into writing.

  2. I've been doing a lot of the same things lately! Trying to meal-plan and blog more--it actually is SO helpful to have these things done ahead of time!

  3. I try to make meal planning a priority because stopping at the grocery store after work just slays my schedule. Also, I like knowing that whatever I'm preparing is going to take this amount of time so I can coordinate that with my running/workout schedule. I don't want to be standing in the kitchen after doing 8 miles. Nope. Or after a crossfit workout, which means that I'm going to get better about having meals already prepared, or just preparing more of some meals so we have leftovers.

    Writing helps me clear my brain, so I totally understand wanting to write.
