I love October, I think it’s one of my favourite months. It’s where everything starts feeling like autumn, and things start to get colder. Now that I have my own flat I can’t wait to start buying cosy blankets, and dare I say it, getting ready for Christmas!
Similar to last month I’ve set myself a few little goals. Here’s what I want to achieve in October:
Lose half a stone
I briefly mentioned in my September goals revisited post that I’ve joined Slimming World. I started off really well, but I’ve had a few slip ups as well. I don’t have many big plans for the rest of October so I’m hoping to be able to stick to the plan 100% and hopefully achieve my half a stone award.
Read two books
I set myself this goal last month, but only managed to read one book. This month I want to actually achieve this!
Get into a regular gym routine
Since my mud run I’ve had bit of a rest as it was quite a physical challenge on myself, which means I’ve got out of the habit from my usual gym routine. I want to get back into visiting the gym regularly, and hopefully build up my strength.
Finish my current knitting project
At the moment I’m working on a big knitting project, and I’m quite slow at finishing my crafty projects. This month I want to be able to finish what I’m currently working on, mostly so I can start on my Christmas crafts!
Try some new recipes
Last month I got to grips with cooking regularly, but my skills are rather basic. I want to try a few new recipes and hopefully improve my cooking skills!
That’s what I want to achieve this month, is there anything you want to achieve in October?
Recently crafts have been my new favourite hobby. I spend most of my evenings sat in front of the TV, usually with a blanket and a cup of tea, with my knitting. I’ve turned into a right little old lady, but I’ve found it a nice way to relax after a long day at work….
So everyone does their #ff’s on a Friday on Twitter but I thought I’d start writing about my favourite bloggers/vloggers every Friday as well. I love hearing other peoples blog recommendations, and I’ve found some great blogs that way, so I thought I’d share my current favourite with you. 1. Lucyy Writes It’s Lucyy’s fault I…
It’s been nearly two months now since we finally completed on our flat. The whole process took around 5 months, which I know might seem quite quick, but we were told it would only be 8 weeks, so it felt pretty long for us! The past two months have been spent packing, unpacking, painting, buying IKEA…
The other day I met up with some of my lovely blogger friends Bex, Shona and Hannah to do what bloggers do best, shopping! We all met up in St Albans and had a good look around the shops and got some food at Wetherspoons. At the time I planned on being good, as…
It’s been a while since I’ve done any monthly goals, in fact October was the last time I set any, and even then I failed pretty badly on them. So with a new year, and a new month, I thought it would be a good time to reset some goals for the month ahead, and hopefully I’ll managed to…
I’m sure it was just the other day I was writing my last weekly update, this week sure has flown by, which is typical because I’ve had the past week off work. On Monday it was my mummas birthday, and not just any birthday, but her 50th birthday. In true style of my mum, she’s…
