It seems like everyone updates their goals, net worth and other similar posts all on the first day of the month and honestly it is a bit much when I read through the hundred plus blogs I follow so I have moved my update to mid month. Hopefully this works out better for everyone!
Lose Weight, Eat Healthier, and Exercise
According to my last update I had lost 5 pounds total and weighed 220 lbs. My goal was to maintain my weight or lose up to 5 lbs in September because I had a lot going on and not gaining weight would be a big accomplishment.
I kind of did well but kind of stunk as far as eating healthier went. I have quit eating quite as much prepackaged food for meals. I haven’t had hardly any frozen meals in September which is a good thing. The bad thing is I have been eating a lot more sweets, especially candy corn which I love!
I haven’t been doing great with exercising but I have been walking our dog almost daily and I do the yard work every weekend now so that helps at least a little bit.
I wasn’t sure how my weight goal was going to go this month because our old cheap scale finally broke. I got a new one on the second to last day of the month and when I weighed myself on September 30th I found out I had lost one pound and was 219 lbs! YAY!
For the next month my goal once again is to not gain any weight. I have quite a few things going on once again so not gaining any weight would be a huge success.
Quit Being So Lazy!
I’m was hoping to have my motorcycle fixed by the end of last month and I just didn’t get around to working on it at all. I mentioned that I might need to pay to get it fixed but I really want to try myself first.
My other goal for last month was to get my last 2 regular doors cut, painted and hung. I did get them cut but the weekends were either jam packed busy or threatened rain so I haven’t had a chance to paint them yet. Once they’re painted we’ll be able to hang them and get them hung pretty quickly hopefully.
As a reader has pointed out recently I work very hard on this blog and it is where a ton of my free time goes. For that reason I’m going to get rid of this section of goals. It isn’t that I’m lazy by not getting these tasks completed, I’m just choosing to spend my free time in different ways.
As of my last update I had 211 twitter followers. Last month my goal was to reach 275 Twitter followers. I barely squeaked by last month and ended up with 277 twitter followers.
I think a reasonable goal by the next update is 350 Twitter followers. With any luck I should be able to obtain this. So, if you haven’t followed me on twitter yet I’d really appreciate you helping me to reach my goal!
Feed subscribers are much harder to gain. As of my last update I had 111 RSS feed subscribers and hoped to have 150 RSS feed subscribers by this update. This one was a close call but as of September 30 I had 156 RSS feed subscribers!
This isn’t my main goal but I definitely like seeing the numbers go up. For my next update I hope to have 200 feed subscribers by mid October. So, again, if you haven’t subscribed to my RSS feed yet I’d really appreciate you helping me to reach my end of October goal!
That’s a Wrap!
That is all I have for you this update! It feels like I just gave my September update but I guess time flies when you’re a blogger!
What goals have you set or accomplished recently? How have you been doing on them?
