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?

Quite a while ago I set myself a 25 before 25 challenge, which completely managed to slip my mind until recently. In three months time I will be 25, so I thought now would be a great time to revisit what I set for myself, and see how far I’ve got on. 1- Move Out I wanted…
Since I bought my little flat last year I’ve had a little obsession with all things interior design. The minute we started looking for our own place I started annoying Chris with clippings from home magazines, and by the time the sale had gone through, I had a whole Pinterest board full of ideas of…
Every year Winter Wonderland comes to Hyde Park, and last night me and a group of friends went for my friend’s birthday. We wrapped up warm and went into London for an evening of festivities, and food, mainly food. I’ve only been briefly once before a few years ago, but my friend who’s birthday it was was…
