September 2015 Goals

Let's see how I did in August: 

{Spiritual} Get back into the #Bible365 reading plan. Well, now I'm almost 3 months behind schedule.

{Financial} Reevaluate my finances and my financial goals. I did. And it'll help me not feel like I'm failing every single month with where I should be in paying off my debt, but it sucks that I had to give myself so much leeway since I did so terribly at that the first half of the year. I really just need to stop using my credit card altogether.

{Social} Actually enjoy my birthday this year. Yes! It wasn't exactly how I pictured it would be, but I got to spend my birthday in Grand Lake, my favorite place in Colorado!

{Mental} Set aside a half hour of quite time every day. This was an absolute fail and probably the goal I'm most upset about. I really do need to turn everything off and just be alone for 30 minutes a day. It's not that hard, yet I can't do it for some reason.
{Physical} Use ClassPass at least 10 times this cycle. Unfortunately, I didn't succeed at this either. Since I late cancelled one class (big mistake!), I only went six times during the first cycle. Even if we pretend that three of the Pure Barre classes I took were on ClassPass, it's still only 9 times. However, I did sign up for a full 12 months of ClassPass at a discounted rate. We'll see how it goes!

{Personal} Cut back on eating out. I did spend less than I did in July, but I still need to cut WAY back.

{Professional} Find a rhythm and routine at my new job. This last week has been a little crazy, but other than that, I think I'm getting the hang of it!

Moving on to September: 

{Spiritual} Get back into a routine at church. This summer kind of got away from me. Starting in July, I felt like I was busy most Saturday nights and when Merge took a break, I really fell out of my routine at church. Now that Merge is back into the swing of things, I need to start making church a priority each week.

{Financial} Be honest with myself about my spending habits. I write down "everything" I spend money on, but a lot of time, I'll skip things, big or small. For example, if I spend a huge chunk of change shopping online, I'll leave it out when I go to write down where all my money went that month. I need to write down E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. so I can really see where all my money is going and hopefully be smarter about each penny.

{Social} Win at least one of my first three fantasy football games. Yeah, maybe this is a stretch for a social goal, but I play against other people (some of whom I know), so that makes it social!

{Mental} Set aside a half hour of quite time every day. I'm serious about it this month. I just need to set a schedule with myself and stick to it.
{Physical} Try at least three new work outs. In my first month of ClassPass, I really stuck to three different work outs: spinning, megaformer, and paddleboard yoga. I'm already signed up for Orange Theory next week (even though they're not on ClassPass), and I need to try out at least two more things to get more variety. That's why I wanted ClassPass to begin with!

{Personal} Stop cussing as much. I just find myself cussing way too much, and in situations were it's particularly not appropriate. I really need to be more aware of what I'm saying and who I'm saying things too. I hate that I cuss as much as I do now.

{Professional} Get at least 18 squares on my Bingo board. In September, we play Pure Barre Bingo at the studio and all of the staff members participate. Since I'm at the studio 5 days a week, my goal is to finish at least 75% of my board.
