Back in the beginning of September I blogged about my goals for the month, with a few little things I wanted to achieve. Now that it’s the beginning of October I thought I’d revisit the goals I set myself to see how I did.
Go to the gym three times a week
I managed to half achieve this one, sometimes I’d make it three times a week, other times I’d only make it twice. I’m still a regular gym goer so I guess that counts!
Finish my 5K mud run
I’m so pleased with myself that I managed to do this one! A few months ago I couldn’t even run, so the fact I managed to even do this was a big achievement. I did however struggle a bit with some of the obstacles during the run, and did lose my shoes about 4K in, but I finished!
I’ve recently been trying to lose a little weight, and in September I signed up to Slimming World, so I’ve definitely been starting to eat a lot healthier.
Read two books
I only managed to read one book during September, but that’s one more than I’ve managed the month before!
Cook four times a week
I’ve gone from not cooking at all, to cooking pretty much every day in September, which is helping a lot with the healthy eating!
Start saving for a holiday
Chris and I have never been on holiday together so thought we’d start saving up for a holiday. We managed to save £100 in September, but then due to an unexpected bill we had to use that money so we’re now back to zero.
Overall I’d say I managed to achieve half my goals in September, which isn’t bad going! I feel like I managed to achieve some big things, like completing my run, and cooking and eating a lot healthier, although I didn’t complete all of my goals.
Did you set any goals in September? How did you do?
Everyone loves kittens. You may have seen on Twitter all my tweets about getting new kittens! After weeks of moaning and convincing my Dad, we were allowed to adopt these two cuties! The black and white boy is called Branston, and the tortoiseshell girl is called Pickle (inventive names right?). Both of them are rescue kittens from…
The other week it was my birthday, and I reached what I felt like was a big grown up age, 24. 24 is an age where I thought I would have had ‘my shit sorted out’ by. 24 sounds like an actual adult age. I still think of myself in my teenage years trying to sort…

It’s been a while now since I started the Slip Into Summer challenge with DW Fitness and Weird Fish, so it’s about time I wrote a really overdue update post! To be honest I’ve been doing well with the challenge.. until two weeks ago. I had my birthday, then I had a few nights out, and then I pretty much…
A few years ago I discovered Japanese food and since then I’ve been obsessed with it. I love visits to Yo! Sushi and Wagamama, but I’m always on the look out for a new place I’ve not visited before. When I was looking for somewhere new I came across Inamo, an oriental fusion restaurant based in Soho. I…
