September Goals:

Sit down and review my week every Monday. – I was able to do this every week! It really helps with the flow of my weeks, and being able to see what I accomplish (aka where all that time goes.)

Blog for The Shattered Worlds Read Along, and Read A Book/Buy A Book day Yes and yes, plus several other blog posts in Sept!

Log my meals for 1 week. – Big fail here. I never managed more than one day, and mostly I just have a log of what I ate for breakfast.

Sept 22nd is Hobbit Day. One of these days I’m going to celebrate by having a party under the party tree with cake and lights and fireworks. Maybe for my one hundrend and elevendy birthday.
Sept 29th is National Coffee day. I celebrate it each year by delivering flowers to the barista’s at my favorite coffee stand.

Log my meals for 1 week.
Why? I need to do this for my health. I’ve just got to figure out a way to make it work.

Write Review for The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly and Mary Poppins.
Why? Because I loved one and hated the other and both deserve a good review.

What a fun rating system! I’ve never seen anyone use those little emoji things to do it before–I like it 🙂

I’m also tracking what I eat, and it’s very hit and miss for me, too (and breakfast does seem to be the easiest!). It always helps when I eat something that’s already in the system (rather than having to input recipes and stuff), and it also helps when I just do it at the same time as I practice my French every day (since I’ve working on that all year through Duolingo). It can be kind of a pain, but it is a habit worth forming, even if just for long enough to get yourself on track or make you realize the rough nutritional value of everything!

Best of luck on your October goals 🙂

I tracked everything I ate for a week or two. I need to get back into it. I also tracked all my bathroom habits. I have Crohn’s Disease, so the point of writing everything is to notice any patterns in stomach problems based on food.

I’m on day 3 this week and so far so good, however tonight’s planned pineapple teriyaki pork and rice might be a little harder to enter, but it’s oh so yummy! If this were a lifestyle blog and not a book blog I might share the recipe 😀

Part of the reason to track my food is weight loss, but also to workout any additional migraine triggers. I already know that aspartame, alcohol, and dried fruit (with sulfate) are major triggers.

Spoiler: Minnow Bly was the book I loved. Hopefully my review will be posted next week. So check back!

Reviewing the past week is such a good idea. For some reason, I have a lot of resistance around things like that, but I can definitely see where it could be helpful.
