Reality Check Wednesday – September Goals Edition

Happy Reality Check Wednesday! Thanks to Teresa as always for hosting!


Today I would like to use my Reality Check to talk about my September goals. I am huge in goal-making, but I have never really written my goals down, let alone really expressed them for others to see. I have been totally inspired by so many other bloggers’ September/monthly goals that I really want to write some of my own.

I love September for many reasons, but especially because it’s not technically the beginning of the new year, but it represents a new start in more ways than one. A new season, a new school/work/dance year. Going into my fourth and final year of my undergrad, it will be a year of firsts and lasts and September is really where I will set the tone and get the ball rolling.

So here are my “REALLY REAL” September goals:

  1. Really stick to my long runs for the next month so I have a great base for my half marathon on October 11. School/work will be a whirlwind but I really want to stick to my long runs so I am ready for my race – PR or no PR!
  2. Start the school year off by completing ALL of my readings. As an English major, I am constantly bombarded with readings, so I really want to start the year off on a good note and not brush off any of my readings.
  3. Continue going to yoga classes. Yoga is not as popular in North Bay as it is in Ottawa, but I really want to commit to attending as many yoga classes as I can, simply because I love it and it makes me feel amazing.
  4. Call my Nana once a week, I think that one is self-explanatory.
  5. Spend less money on these things:
    Also self-explanatory. There also isn’t a Starbucks in North Bay so that makes things easier. But man, am I going to miss my iced coffees.
  6. Get back on the meal-prep wagon. I think this one will be easy once I settle into my new schedule and routine. I crave routine. I can’t wait.

I think I will stop at 6. So there ya have it! I hope you all have a great Wednesday!


Share some of your September goals with me!

    • I definitely agree. It gives a sort of ownership to them, because they become more than a thought in your head! I really wanted to try to expand my goals outside of just running or just school. Thanks so much for reading, Angie!:)

  1. Oh my gosh I was just thinking this morning how I need to spend less money at Starbucks! AND I was craving those Justin’s PB cups yesterday too! I’m on the same page as you when it comes to sticking with my long runs–right now, I don’t want to focus too much on my pace but instead want to work on building up my mileage so I feel comfortable when it’s time for my half marathon in March.

  2. That is a lot of goals all at once. However, I recommend you stick with the long runs first do em slow enough to really relax and enjoy and not tear yourself down. Good luck on the race and all the goals


    • Thanks for the advice and the good luck!! I really want to focus on those long runs so I’m not too uncomfortable come race day. Thank you so much for reading:)
