October Intentions

I checked my blog today and I’ve posted 5 times this year. This post will be 6. Who am I? 

Things since my last post are very different. I’ve really been focusing on self-care and things that make me happy. Trying my best to really get a grasp on what I was put on this Earth to do and how I’m supposed to leave my mark.

Whoa. That was a little deep. 

For the month of October I’m being intentional about how I spend my time, my finances, and my focus. So, I figured I’d share. 

I was successful once in completing the Whole30, and failed a number of times since then. One of my best friends convinced me to do another one with her, and I feel like with our competitive nature this one will definitely be a success. Although I love the idea of starting October 1, we’re kicking it off September 30 since it’s a Monday. 

I’ve been more open about my faith and how I spend my Sunday mornings. But, I’ve noticed that it really stops with Sunday. I decided to join a small group through my church as a way to grow deeper in my faith and to meet new people. Additionally, I have a daily devotional that I’m going to continue (I used it for a few months but stopped). 

I follow A LOT of coaches from BeachBody and they’ve all been following along with the Morning Meltdown 100 program. It officially kicks off to the public on October 1 and I cannot be more excited. 100 workouts, all 30 minutes or less, and the results from consistency are incredible. Since taking dating out of the picture, my nights have included cooking at home and then walking 3 miles with my mom and my dog. Thanks to that, I’ve taken 5 lbs off and kept it off. I know adding this program in will help me drop even more. 

I must say, I’m killing it lately at work. I’m overwhelmed with all of the projects I’ve been put on but I continue to get “you nailed it” comments back so I guess that means I’m doing something right! For a while I was a part of an MLM, and still am. Actually, I’m connected to two and really not working either of them. I’d LOVE to really get one of the two businesses off the ground, but I’m been slacking on putting in any effort. For the month of October, I’m really going to get more focused as to which one I want to put the effort into so I can watch it soar. 

I really found it therapeutic to put all of these intentions down in writing so I can focus myself. If this is something you guys want to read about, how I’m planning out my month, let me know and I’ll keep it up!

What are your intentions for October?
