Goal Check In: September 2018

Tuesday, October 2, 2018

September was a quick and super fun month! I started off the month with a cruise to Cozumel, took a weekend trip to San Antonio, started a new job, and ended the month with watching Taylor Swift on her Reputation Stadium Tour with the girls. With such an eventful month I didn't do as much reading as I would have liked, but thankfully I didn't let anything else slip. Here are my goal updates for the month: 


  • Drink eight glasses of water a day 
  • Journal everyday
    • Keeping up with both of these daily goals! 


  • Workout four days a week
    • Getting into a workout routine has been the best thing I've done. I workout out almost daily because it honestly makes me feel good, gives me more energy, and helps set a positive tone for my day. 
  • Cook a new meal once a week
    • We still cook all our week day meals at home, but I haven't tried any new recipes. 
  • Work from a coffee shop one day a week
    • While I haven't made it out once a week I have been better about this! 
  • No TV or Social Media one day a week
    • This has been so hard to accomplish. Trying to disconnect for an entire day every week was a little ambitious. I am going to try to disconnect one day a month for the rest of the year.   


  • Read two books a month
  • Try a new restaurant
    • Houston
      • Night Heron: I'd been to Night Heron before for drinks but this trip I tried the food. I had a burger and it was delicious!  
      • Flower Child: I met up with Grecia for lunch after work one day and we had a yummy and healthy lunch. The line during lunch time was long but it went by quickly. The restaurant itself is bright, happy, and oh so cute. 
    • San Antonio
      • Liberty Bar: We had brunch at Liberty Bar before heading the the UTSA game. Everything I drank and ate was delicious and it didn't hurt that the restaurant was in a cute pink building. 
    • New Braunfels 
      • The Downtowner: When we showed up they had a long wait list which led me to have high expectations. I ordered a steak omelet and it was tasteless. I ended up not liking my food but Steven loved his chicken fried steak. 
  • Plan a girls night
    •  Spent the first couple of days of the month on a bachelorette party cruise with all the best girlies. 
    • Had a girls night out at the Taylor Swift concert. 
  • Send birthday cards
    • Got the cards out this month! 


  • Run a 10k - Completed on February 24, 2018 
    • Finished my first timed 10k in 59:15.6 mins! 
  • Run a half marathon
    • Finally ran my first half marathon on July 15! I completed 13.2 miles in 2 hours and 20 minutes! 
  • Complete a Whole30 - Completed April 13, 2018 
  • Plan our 30th birthday party
    • Slowly but surely working on this! December will be here before I know it!
