Last month I wrote about my resolutions for September, as I tend to think of this time of year as a fresh start, and I wanted to update you.
Eating better -This is going well. No alcohol since September 1, and no nighttime snacking, other than some popcorn this weekend. Those are my two weaknesses and the things I find the hardest to give up. I definitely feel better and stronger, so it is worth it, and also it feels good to be disciplined.
Bring my lunch - well, since I am eating healthy foods and following a reset meal plan, I am pretty good about not buying food at work. I did meet a friend for lunch last week, but I think I made a pretty wise choice - a fish and shrimp cake with roasted cabbage and carrot salad.
Fitting in an extra workout/continuing to ride my bike - I am still riding my my bike a few days a week, even though it is getting cooler in the mornings. That has been my extra workouts for now.
Not scrolling through social media - Not as good with this one. Since our election has started, and TIFF was going on in Toronto, I have been very interested in Twitter lately.
Start thinking about Halloween and Christmas - We have Q's costume, and E knows what he wants to be so I need to get those things. No thoughts towards Christmas yet, but my goal will definitely be to minimize the toys!
So I will continue with all of these and a few more as we continue on this month and into October:
Get E back into doing his chores.
Finish up decorating the kids' rooms.
Print some photos for our photo wall.
Read more books.
Keep up to date with the election coverage.
