September Wrap Up!

Dang, where did September go?  This week has been crazy busy, that is for sure!  I did the orientation for my literacy tutoring yesterday and it has been a mad scramble to get in work – although I caught up nicely.  Enough to be able to watch Project Runway last night! (Josh M go home already!)

I made up some yummy oats for breakfast today.  This was banana custard oats topped with maple cream and toasted pecans!

I managed to flip most of this bowl into my lap while at the computer (because I admit, that is where I usually eat breakfast)  I saved most of it, but that was annoying because I had to go change.

After breakfast I took a walk and then spent at least an hour on the phone with the photo shoot coming up on Monday.  That is causing me some stress, and I am stress eating a bit.  It will be fun, but I also feel fairly self conscious about it.  At least it is being done in my home and I can feel relaxed there.

Lunch time:

It kind of looks like dinner, doesn’t it?  Dinner out tonight, so I wanted to make sure I got in my broccoli!

Are you ready for a complete cuteness overload?

Ms. Pixie sleeping on me today.  I really wish I could market her cuteness.

Anyway, here were my goals for September and how I did:

1. Do 1 new recipe and post it each week. I did 3 meals.  Pork with Peppers and rice, GF Banana Bread,  Country Captain Chicken. I just got too busy to do the 4th one.  I actually did do a GF sandwich bread, but I never took pictures or did a post on it.

2. Keep going with Couch to 5K. I did into week 8.  It was just feeling wrong.  I was hating it and how it was hurting me.  It really bothered me that I used to run and now it doesn’t work for me. I realized, though, that I don’t need to run. I just don’t need to do it when there are a lot of other things that don’t hurt me.  It doesn’t make me any less of an athlete.

3. Volunteer for something or join a book club/something like that.  I went to the orientation to start literacy tutoring.  The rest of the track will happen in November, so good to go.

4. Celebrate 15 years of marriage on the 28th. Done and done!

5. Do Pilates 2 times a week.  Sqeeeeaaaakkkk!  Did you hear that? I just barely eked in 2 times a week with it. LOL.

Not a bad month.  I now have to think of some things for October.

Are you ready for a latte? I was!

Please ignore the bowl of chocolate chips and pretzels.  I am not sure what that is doing there… really…  😳

Dinner time we might my parents to take my mother out for her birthday.  Happy birthday Mom!!

We went to the Anvil.

My pictures were horrible in here as it was very dark inside, although quite a  neat place. It is a building from the 1840s.

No garden pictures today as my busy butt just didn’t get out there to take any pictures this week!  My mums will be in full bloom next week, so you can all look forward to that, as will I.

I will return with a recap Sunday night of our champagne breakfast cruise (rain and all, most likely) to celebrate our anniversary.

Question: How was your September?

    September SOARED past!

    I’m kinda hoping that February and March are the same way. 🙂

    Great job on your goals. It can be hard to stay on track. I need mine really simple or else written down on the fridge where I see them constantly.

    Have a blast on the cruise. I bet even in the rain it will be fun. Rain bouncing on the water is pretty cool.

    Glad you enjoyed a good month! And belated happy anniversary to you & John! (Maybe not *too* belated, since you didn’t go on your dinner cruise yet…)

    Loved the Pixie photo! And I’m curious, what did you think of the Pilates? Will you be doing more, or moving on to something else?

      J – I love Pilates. I used to do it quite a bit before I really got into lifting. I like it much, much better than yoga. I hope to keep on with it.

    Sounds like you had a great September, Even though I have been eating healthy, I started back on an eating and exercise plan. only walking right now, but hoping to add lifting in this week. So I think my September has been a success too.

    Photo shoot?! Wait…where did I miss that?! Okay, gonna go back and read a few posts 🙂 So exciting!!!

    I agree with you on the running, Lori. Any exercise that you hate and hurts your body is NOT worth doing!

    Have an awesome time on the breakfast cruise!

    I think you had a great month. As for the running: you gave it the best you could, you tried and it wasn’t right for you. You did 8 weeks where others would have stopped earlier. I’m very proud of you.

    I hope you have a great day at the cruise and hope that it doesn’t rain. Im happy to send some sunshine your way, bit too warm here for the time of the year.

    OK, did you tell us what the photo shoot was for yet & I missed it? I am so eager to know what it is all about!!!! I use up all my patience with my exercise & eating plan! 😉

    Great month for you with goals! No shame in the running. Man, if I could do what you do with biking, although I have no desire, ;-), I would pat myself on the back big time!

    YES, Pixie is too dang cute!!!!!!!!!!! A blog of just Pixie & then cat food product ads on it would make some money I bet! You already have enough pics to go for a while! I would read AND read you here too!

    Happy bday to your mom & have a wonderful time this weekend with all else!
