I linked up with Erica for some September Goals in hopes that it would keep me accountable for the goals I set for myself. Hoping, shmoping. I don't think I've ever kept a new years resolution, during lent I'm the one that gives up fast food only to eat a cheeseburger on a Friday (double whammy), so I was being super optimistic about this blogging about goals business.
September Goals (that I better stick to!) I was so positive on day one.
Workout 5 times a week in the AM before the kiddos wake up. Lord help me with this one. I start working out and do really well, and then I stop and do that really well too. So yeah....working out in the AM before the kiddos woke up did not happen ONCE. I did however workout in the PM when Ian got off of work, and it was more 3x a week. Super bonus, and I didn't even make it a goal, was that I did get rid of 6 lbs this month. Woot woot!!
Jog the entire Color Run 5k. Yeah I said jog. I haven't been running, and if you remember the good eye doc told me I shouldn't. I don't want to walk the 5K though. So I'll jog slooooow. I'm super excited for this!! Pshhh...yeah that was crazy thinking, because I did not prepare myself for flipping hills. Lord, I thought I was going to fall in defeat after the first hill which was right at the beginning of the run. Who decided the course, because those hills were miserable. I was so sore afterwards, and not the oh I feel good sore. It was the oh my legs hurt so bad I'm not going to move at all sore. AND I didn't even get super colored like I've seen in pictures. I finished colorless.
Have some me time. This is really hard for me. I always feel guilty being away from Max and Emma, but I need to make this a priority. I need to take care of myself to keep me sane. There's a yoga place near by that offers 7 classes for $7 (total) for new students. Crazy! I'm excited to try it out! Well...I did not check out the yoga place...yet. I did manage to have a couple nights of reading upstairs by myself, and I went grocery shopping by myself which was amazing.
Cook at least one new meal a week. I have my staples that we love and I like cooking every week, but I need to spice up our dinner meals. Pinterest here I come! I added 3 new meals to our dinners this month! (pictures for Mexican Pizza and the Chicken will take you to the recipe I followed. The manicotti recipe is the one from the back of the pasta box.)
