My Only October Goal

I usually start each month with a recap of my previous month's happenings and some goals for the upcoming month, but frankly, those posts are becoming repetitive.  If I am boring myself,  I know how you must feel about it.  I have very similar successes each month, and likewise, similar short-comings.  I'll spare you the specifics, or if you really do care (so sweet) can read last months post here, not much has changed.

Honestly, I only share my goals with you here because I hope it helps you to think about your own personal goals.  

For October, I only have one goal, and it is to never allow myself to use "I don't feel like it" as an excuse to not do something, and I am not just referring to working out.

This rule will apply to all aspects of my life, goals, and responsibilities.

Studying for my personal training certification.
Cleaning my house.
Washing my hair (don't judge me, it is a lot of work).
Working on my husband's business.
Cooking a healthy dinner.
Going for a long run (or a short one).
Packing my lunch for work.
Emptying the dishwasher.
Putting the laundry away.
Going to bed early.
Getting up early.
This list could go on and on.

Let's just call it what it is, wish me well on my October endeavor to not be lazy.

I do have some exciting things coming up in October that I want to share with you:
  • This coming Saturday is the Dirty Girl Mud Run in Cedar Hill State Park in Dallas, TX!  I am so excited to get dirty, this is my first mud run.
  • I finally signed up for a personal trainer certification online course.  I learned this year, that self-study is not for me.  I need some structure in my life.  This time it is really going to happen.  No, really.
  • I joined Crossfit!  I am signed up for the two week on-ramp course and then for two months. This is both scary and exciting.  I've just been to one class so far, it was good, and I am not too sore (yet, ask me tomorrow).  Looking forward to what is to come.  I'm sure I will write a blog post about it soon, whether I feel like it, or not
  • I will finally film that planking Vlog that I have been talking about for months.  No, really.

As am typing this, a giant pile of hubby's business expense receipts is staring me down.  It is almost as if they are asking, "What don't you feel like doing now?"  Gotta get to work.

Keep Running,
