September Goals

Image result for september

Here is a quick rundown of my September goals and BTW this September picture makes me so happy. I always consider September pre-fall and sometimes the anticipation is almost as good as the real thing.

September Goals

1. Read two books. I'm currently reading The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo. I love books by comedians. I'm also reading The Energy Bus which I love!

2. Cook more. I actually made tacos last night which isn't original but it did get me back into the kitchen.

3. Work on potty training Jack. Seriously, thorn in my side. I've had to learn to breathe and let it go at times. He is just stubborn. He knows what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. He is just lazy most of the time.

4. Putting together some fun work outfits. I'm looking forward to scarf weather!

5. Make our fall bucket list. I enjoy making this every year. I get out the calendar, call my sister to coordinate, and put the plans to paper. It always gets me excited.

6. Have fun at the beach. My friends and I are going next Wednesday and will be back that Sunday. It is the longest I've ever been away from Jack. I know it will be difficult but I'm going to do my best to not bore all my friends with my misery of missing him. They all have older kids, who of course they miss, but it is different when your baby is a toddler who doesn't grasp where Mama is going.

7. Make my decision about Weight Watchers. I'm thinking about joining WW once I get back from vacation. I'm worried with the holidays approaching that I'll gain weight. Over the summer I lost ten pounds but I have at least another 30 I want to lose. I've had success in the past with WW so I'm thinking about going that route again and a friend wants to join up with me. Any thoughts on your experience with WW?

8. Get into a happy after school rhythm. I almost wrote routine and that isn't what I want or need. Life is crazy and messy and there will never be a tried and true after school routine. I just want to add some more happy into that space of time.


  1. I lost 50 lbs on WW in 2005-2006 and kept it off until E was born in 2011. I'm currently sitting 20 lbs below my highest weight ever. When I lost the weight it was on the original points plan and I loved it. I have done WW a couple times with the newer plans and I didn't like them as much.

  2. Look at you...two blog post in a row!! :) Yay!! I hope you have a fantastic beach trip! You deserve it!

  3. My boy is stubborn too. He just started walking and he's 19 months. He decides to do things when HE wants to, and not a minute sooner. Oh mothering, it's something else, huh? Lol.

  4. Great goals!! Your beach trip sounds like so much fun. You'll have to snap pictures of fun things while you're away to show Jack when you get back. Sounds like you've got a good game plan for the month. Tacos are one of our favorite dinners so that sounds delicious :)

  5. I'll have to add The Energy Bus to my list of to-reads.
