September 30th - Another Month Comes to an End

Friday, September 30, 2011

I can't believe how crazy September has been. It's been full of ups and downs (and still is). The goals I set at the beginning of the month were:
- To complete at least 30 minutes of cardio 6 days a week.
- To do strength training at least 5 days a week.
- To blog everyday.

I was doing great at meeting all of those goals up until last week. After doing photos for a wedding for the first time, I totally lost focus of everything while I was going through the editing process. It wasn't until I was done that I realized it's okay to take my time and push the process out to closer to the deadline rather than to forget about everything and get it all done as quickly as possible. There's a reason I tell the Clients a certain timeframe in which I will have their photos ready. I've been back on track this week, though I haven't been blogging daily. There really hasn't been much to blog about, or at least nothing I haven't said 50 times.

I will post my goals for October tomorrow. I'm so glad the weather will be cooling down again. It's supposed to get down into the 50s overnight thanks to a cold front that's moving through. I'm so excited! :) I finally got out and hit the trail yesterday and did a little bit of jogging. I had my daughter with me so I didn't get to push as hard as I would have liked.

I have a family photo shoot tomorrow so it will be time to challenge myself in doing what I said - working on editing without putting everything else on hold. It should be interesting to see how I do. I'm also working on building my website. Tony bought me the domain name for Sophisticated Snapshots Photography and the site is up, though very much still under construction. For anyone who wants to check it out, here's a link: www.SophisticatedSnapsho

Like I said, there's not much to see yet, but I'm hoping to work on it more each day. I'm using a Website Builder until I relearn HTML. lol

    So proud of you. You manage to keep us all in line and run your own business, oh and be a wife and mother. YOU GO GIRL!

    I know that it is hectic and you might feel like you are blowing it (ok, maybe I am just talking about myself emoticon ), but from an outsider....you are doing great.

    Keep up the good work and let's kick some major badunk in October!

    There it is...life just getting in the way again emoticon I think you did a wonderful job...consider everything that you had on your plate. I think that as you do more shoots the editing part will start getting easier and not feel so time crunching.... emoticon

    time management is one of my biggest hurdles too! I took a clue from another SP member who tried planning out her day - hour to hour - I haven't been able to do the hour to hour thing YET, but I am making a priority list of what has to get done first, etc and what time I need to first and when I MUST have them done. It has helped a bunch. The month has flew by so fast though. I'm glad you got out to enjoy the weather yesterday! I LOVE autumn - the colors, the temp, just everything! hope you have a great weekend!
