September Goals

Dreams aren’t goals until you write them down.

Write shit down.

Decide what it is you want. Write that shit down. Make a fucking plan. And work on it. Every single day.

September Goals:

  1. Participate in a third Two Pretzels fitness accountability group (where I’ll set the goal of 21 daily workouts)
  2. Finish my Business Blog Plan so I can be a millionaire (#snort)
  3. Write and post on Eleventh Street eight times, hoping to initiate at least three conversations with my readers (I like to talk; let’s start some conversations!)
  4. Write two book reviews to begin catching up on my Bibliophile page


What are your September goals?

Living in a sports bra

Every day last week I made my fitness and my healthy eating habits a priority. It also means I’ve been wearing a lot of different workout clothes and almost living in my sports bras and sneakers. They aren’t the most flattering styles I have, but they do the job for my 21 days of jumping and running around. It works.

I haven’t seen a change (it’s been, but I feel a change. It’s not the easiest thing I’ve ever done (in fact it might be one of the harder things I’ve tried), but I’m TRYING.


One of my biggest changes is that I’m concentrating on portion sizes while I work with nutrition. I’m using a specific set of containers to help me measure, and I’m pleased with the heaps of vegetables I’ve been cramming into my body (so. much. spinach.) and thrilled that raspberries have become a staple as my snacks. I’ve been avoiding the ice cream, cookies, and JUNK that Coop brought home almost completely, which is a huge victory for this sweet toothed lady.

I still drink too much coffee (though my water intake is now HIGHER than my coffee intake) and I’m modifying my workouts as I need to; but I’m TRYING.

I want my body to look different … so I have to do something different to my body. Little steps will add up to a long marathon, and eventually I will see the difference.

What are you doing this May to help your body be the best that it can be?
