I hope the weather cools off in October. I love the crisp leaves & lower temperatures!

Here's what I'm hoping to accomplish this month.


  • Stick to our budget
  • Save $2,500, in addition to our stock vests. 
  • Put $100/each in the boys college funds

  • Have one date night with M
  • Donate, sell or toss 50 items in the house.
  • Clean the garage!
  • Plan one family fun night, potentially a movie, popcorn, game night.
  • Try a new recipe that everyone (including my little guy) will eat. 
  • Find a new nanny. MUST DO.
  • Get our plans sorted out for our Hawaii trip.

  • Lose 2 pounds. 
  • Eat 5 servings of fruits & vegetables 
  • Complete 5 stretching workouts (yoga or pilates)
  • Complete 7 strength workouts
  • Complete 900 minutes of cardio. 
  • Average 1350 calories/day

  • Maximum of one late night/week
  • Work from home at least one Friday this month

  • Read four books
  • Get together with one friend
  • Plan my next girls trip

What about you? What are you hoping to accomplish in October?


  1. Lose some weight needs to go back on my list! Good luck and welcome October.

  2. I love to read other people's goals and yours are so nicely thought out. I've got lots planned this month, which makes a change, but my main goal is to NOT spend as much money as I normally do. I read a lot, so perhaps download my new yoga app and start a beginner's course, hopefully plan for Nanowrimo which starts in November. I'm doing some walks in the New Forest which I'm really excited about, too. Filling my weekends if not all my evenings, and that's something to look forward to for sure! x

    1. That sounds great! Let me know if you find a good yoga app that you enjoy.
