September Goals

Goals button

This summer was all about survival mode, but I am tentatively dipping my toes back into the water here at my beloved little blog, and of course that includes my monthly goals post. In the first draft of this post, I started by brainstorming all the goals that I might want to work on for the month, and I came up with over 15!  Umm…. that’s not good.  Apparently I’m a bit of a jack-rabbit when it comes to setting goals.  (You know, those runners that start out super fast, but they’re walking by the halfway point?)

I don’t want to set myself up for failure, so I’m forcing myself to pick one area and really focus on it for the month.  My blog-friend Steph is hosting a Choose your Own Adventure goals challenge, so I decided to pick a simple goal that goes along with their theme for the month (September — fitness), and actually try to do it for 30 days, instead of letting my jack-rabbit brain go off in a million directions.

So here it is: a simple fitness goal for September. I want to walk or run for 30 minutes a day, and do Mutu ab exercises every day.  (There may be a sticker chart involved.)

I’ll report back at the beginning of October to let you know how I did!

    • Ha – I had to laugh when I read your post! I know, I go a bit overboard on setting all those goals, don’t I? But how else does anyone ever get anything done? =)

      I have to admit though, even though my “goal” this month is fitness, I’m pretty proud of myself. We got our house on the market, most of our stuff moved out, and tons of other moving-out related tasks (cancelling cable, trash service, getting insurance for our new place, etc.)

    • Oh my gosh, it’s true, isn’t it? I thought I’d have so much more time to exercise on my work-from-home days, but somehow never moving further than a 100 ft radius from my bedroom all day makes me into a sloth. (I don’t have a home office set up so I’m working at the dining room table.)

    • I posted it on Instagram – I couldn’t find any stickers so I ended up just drawing a chart on a large index card and coloring in the lines for each day that I met my goal.

  1. This is awesome! I will join in on Friday 🙂 I totally have a goal in mind woot woot 🙂 I wish you the best of luck and hope you can stick to your goals! I’m the same way, if I come up with too many tasks/goals I won’t accomplish them. My mind gets overwhelmed and can’t handle the load. I started working out 4 months ago so I can definitely say it was hard getting into a routine but I started with 3X a week and I’m up to 5. So I’m happy with that, at most 6 when I do body pump on Sundays and minimum 4. So I’m good with that, as long as I’m conscious of my need to stay physically active all is good. 🙂 Hope you have a great one Sarah and enjoy the challenge! -Iva

  2. Jack rabbit brain? I love the term and I can relate. I always say that I have way too many browser tabs open in my mind and that I want to look at them all at once.

    I’m pretty sure that I have two jack rabbits in my cabeza. Or maybe it’s just a really fast porcupine…

    • Glad to hear I’m not the only one! I’ve been checking out your new site, it’s very cool! I’m not really in a place where I have much time to learn new things right now (unless you want to start a podcast) but hopefully someday I’ll be able to put your great ideas into practice.
