October 2017 Goals

October 2017 Goals

{ S P I R I T U A L }
September 2017: Attend church every Sunday.
Well, we tried. We had conflicts almost every weekend, but we went while we were in town and able, which actually turned out to be one week unfortunately.
October 2017: Join a small group.

{ F I N A N C I A L }
September 2017: Create an in-depth wedding budget.
We've been so bad at wedding planning this month. We didn't spend any time focusing just on planning the wedding like we intended, so we'll have to be better next month.
October 2017: Open a bank account.

{ R E L A T I O N A L }
September 2017: Start Marriage Prep Saturdays.
Oy. See above.
October 2017: Have a phone-free date night.

{ S O C I A L }
September 2017: Create Dinner Club and host the first gathering.
We approached two other couples about starting it and they were both in and excited. We just haven't nailed down a day of the month that will work for everyone and set a start date. Here's hoping for October.
October 2017: Host our first Dinner Club.

{ M E N T A L }
September 2017: Read 2 books.
I finished Why Not Me? and I started Rising Strong this month, but I guess that doesn't really count.
October 2017: Finish 1 book.

{ P H Y S I C A L }
September 2017: Go for a walk once a week.
Yikes, it's been quite a month for goals, hasn't it...? Although, my friend Taylor and I started working out together and did a few loops around the park, but that was all within a week and a half, I think. Still, I have been more regularly getting at least 10,000 steps a day, so that's SOMETHING.
October 2017: Go for a walk once a week.

{ P E R S O N A L }
September 2017: Practice watercolor once a week.
Nope.
October 2017: Eat paleo 4 days a week.

{ P R O F E S S I O N A L }
September 2017: Get more familiar with Lightroom & Photoshop.
I'm certainly getting better with Lightroom, but I have yet to open up Photoshop. I need to make sure that it downloaded properly actually.
October 2017: Start looking for a job.
