Sept Recap, Oct Goals and wedding update

Wednesday, October 02, 2013

Another month come and gone SO fast. Amazing how fast time flies by these days. It doesn't help that I have a wedding to plan for! Eek! We finally found our DJ and I think I found our photographer last night. I also found my dress and it wasn't one of the two that I posted on here! I just wasn't really feeling either of those like I wanted to. I wanted to feel some sort of pull towards one of them and they were both just kind of "blah" for me. This one I tried on and I didn't want to take it off! That's a load off!

Well, goals for September partially worked and partially didn't. My goals were:

2000 fitness minutes for the month of September - I got about 1900 - only 100 minutes off, not too shabby!
1300-1400 calories a day, including weekends. - This one was pretty close as well. Mostly closer to the 1400 calorie range.
Limit the alcohol intake - The beginning of the month wasn't so much alcohol free, but happy to say that the end was!
Limit the sweets... NO BAKING!! - This is the one that I stuck to the most! IT didn't help me lose any weight, but it DID help me to not gain any! It was HARD too... I love baking and making sweets. I doubt I can do No Bake October, with family trips coming up, but I'm gonna try!!
Goal for 9/30/12 - 179. - Nope. 183.8 as of Saturday, 9/28.

So goals for October:
Pretty much the same ones as for September...
2000 fitness minutes for the month of October
1300-1400 calories a day, including weekends.
Limit the alcohol intake
Limit the sweets
Goal for 10/31/13 - 179

Gotta stay on track, I can do it.

Work is messing up my schedule again. I used to work a straight shift, 7:00-3:30, then they changed it to M,Th,F 6:30-3 and T, W 7-11 then 2-6. Which was fine, I got my work out done in the middle of the day instead of after. But now... They are changing those two T and W to 10-4 then 6-8. I'm a creature of habit and routine, so this is thoroughly messing with my eating and workout schedule. I hope it doesn't throw me off.

Have a great October everyone! :-)

    I'm glad you found a dress that was just exactly right for you! I look forward to seeing the pictures.

    Your goals look great - we aren't perfect, but at least with goals we have something to work towards!

    Sounds like your wedding plans are taking shape. That in itself should help lower the stress level. It also sounds like you are on the right track nutrition and exercise wise. I wish you success with your wedding plans and your healthy lifestyle. emoticon emoticon
