October Goals

* Treat my body better - As you may remember from THIS POST, I've been getting migraines/headaches a lot lately.  Since this is no medicine to prevent them, he suggested some lifestyle changes that could help: exercise for 30 mins EVERY DAY, vitamin supplements, drink more water, and eating proper meals and enough snacks during the day

* Join the Blogtober Challenge over at Helene In Between.  She has a blog prompt and link up for every day of the month, and I thought it would be a great way to meet new bloggers.  Especially since I met a lot of great bloggers through the Blogtember Challenge last month.

* Check off some things from my Fall Bucket List

* "Unplug" more - Sometimes I feel like blogging takes up a little more of my day than it should.  Paige is growing up FAST and I don't want to regret missing this time with her.

* Organize/Declutter my closet - My closet is currently stuck in this weird in-between season phase right now and I need to get it organized before my OCD goes crazy.

* Create more art - I'm so disappointed in myself...I haven't created any new art in over a month!  That's terrible! The last one I posted was the Wolverine watercolor painting at the end of August! Yikes!  I'm going to make it a goal for myself to try to create something new once a week and post it every Friday.

*  Try not to freak out TOO much about turning 30 at the end of the month.  YUCK...  I told my husband I was going to lay in bed and cry all day with a bottle of wine. hahaha!  He said I'm not allowed because "he has plans..."   Hmmmm...

What do you hope to get accomplished this month?

    Hmmmmmmm I wonder what those plans are?!??! :) Girl ... I am STILL depressed since SOONER than I'd like to admit, I will be 43 . get the walker ready for me :(

  2. haha awww They say you are only as old as you feel! Which isn't too comforting to me sometimes because I swear I feel like I'm 80 some days

  3. I am with you on unplugging more! I moved my laptop to the dining room table, so I can't sit on the sofa and mindlessly waste time! Having my phone/iPad are good for quick google searches, but I've been enjoying being away from the laptop!

  4. Lemongrass water is a natural painkiller.. I took it despite hating the smell and it worked for my knees.. so I hope it works for you too!

    And oh! I'm in the Blogtober too.. ^^

  5. oh really?? I will definitely give that a try. Thank you!! Can't wait to see your Blogtober posts too!

  6. Yeah, I hear you! I feel like I'm always attached to my laptop.
