October Goals Check In

Wow, can you believe we are already halfway through October?!? My coworker informed yesterday that it's only 5 weeks until we decorate the office for Christmas (our boss likes it done in time for our family Thanksgiving lunch). That's just crazy talk, I tell ya!

Anyway, I thought I'd do a quick check in and let you know how I'm doing with my goals that I set for the month.

1. Include at least 1 fruit/veggie with every meal. So far, so good! I haven't been quite 100% (sometimes life happens), but I have been A LOT better with this than I have in the past. One thing that has helped me a lot while at work: I bought a big container of already cut up cantaloupe and keep it in the fridge at work. For examples, my 2 remaining bananas at home were just a little too brown for me this morning, but I still had some cantaloupe left at work to eat with my Kind bar. I've also gone through about 2.5 pounds of spinach (I buy the big 16 oz containers of organic baby spinach); I've been making a ton of salads and having sauteed spinach with chicken sausage for lunch. So easy and delicious!

2. Go to Starbucks no more than 3x per week. Yeeeaaah... not so much. Haha. I'll just leave it at that :)

3. No more than 2 dessert-type treats per day. I've been doing great with this! It's definitely helped me become more aware and mindful of the choices I'm making, and helps me think twice before absentmindedly grabbing a cookie or something.

4. Drink at least 100 oz of water per day. I think I've been good with this; I haven't religiously been tracking, but I'm making an effort to refill my 24 oz cup more times per day. I try to finish 2-3 cups while at work, and 2 more after work. When I run in the morning, I usually have at least 24 oz before work.

So there you have it... not perfect, but definitely progress! Oh, and a fun NSV to report...

Don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't done so already!

How are you doing with your goals? Any NSV's this week?

On Thurs, I was filling in my tracker for Tues-Thurs (oops)... this morning, I realized I completely skipped Weds!
