I love October, I think it’s one of my favourite months. It’s where everything starts feeling like autumn, and things start to get colder. Now that I have my own flat I can’t wait to start buying cosy blankets, and dare I say it, getting ready for Christmas!
Similar to last month I’ve set myself a few little goals. Here’s what I want to achieve in October:
Lose half a stone
I briefly mentioned in my September goals revisited post that I’ve joined Slimming World. I started off really well, but I’ve had a few slip ups as well. I don’t have many big plans for the rest of October so I’m hoping to be able to stick to the plan 100% and hopefully achieve my half a stone award.
Read two books
I set myself this goal last month, but only managed to read one book. This month I want to actually achieve this!
Get into a regular gym routine
Since my mud run I’ve had bit of a rest as it was quite a physical challenge on myself, which means I’ve got out of the habit from my usual gym routine. I want to get back into visiting the gym regularly, and hopefully build up my strength.
Finish my current knitting project
At the moment I’m working on a big knitting project, and I’m quite slow at finishing my crafty projects. This month I want to be able to finish what I’m currently working on, mostly so I can start on my Christmas crafts!
Try some new recipes
Last month I got to grips with cooking regularly, but my skills are rather basic. I want to try a few new recipes and hopefully improve my cooking skills!
That’s what I want to achieve this month, is there anything you want to achieve in October?

Now it feels like we’re in full blown autumn weather with the dark evenings, golden leaves on the ground, I’ve even dug out my winter coat. I think autumn is probably my favourite season, where I can break out all my old favourite jumpers, and sit under cosy blankets and no one can judge me….
Every year I make new years resolutions, with things I hope to stick to, and usually don’t. So this year I thought I’d try something different, and share what my wishes are for the year ahead. HomeLast year we moved into our flat in July, and still we haven’t finished decorating or getting it to…
This Christmas I’m really into burning festive smelling candles. In fact, I sat burning a few, watching Christmas films whilst I did all my Christmas wrapping. I’ve always been a bit of a scented candle addict, but there’s a few that I’ve found very fitting for this time of year. As I have a few favorites this year…
About three weeks ago I posted Mission Healthy Eating/Loose Weight So I thought I’d give you all a little update. So for three weeks now I’ve been on this project. I’ve been hitting the gym quite often, although I could probably do more. But I do feel like my fitness has improved. When I first…
