I’m convinced that the later into the year we get, the faster the months fly by. Although, October started out well, with a lot of tasks getting completed and crossed off the very first week, which helped propel me through the rest of my list. November is about slowing down a little. Simplifying more. Being more focused and intentional on how I spend my time and doing the right things well instead of all the things okay.
October in Review:
1. Update editorial calendar for Neat & Nutritious.
Since the start of Celebration Nutrition, I was running two blogs, which, combined with having a baby, meant content was sporadic on both sites. In order to streamline and make life simpler, I merged the two and am migrating content over to Neat & Nutritious. Which means more access to nutrition-related topics, more consistent content, and more recipes (down the road!)
2. Finish my first postpartum/stroller race.
My goal was to finish my 3rd Run Free Texas 80s 8k in under an hour/beat my pregnancy time from last year. Right at the end I realized I could even beat 55 minutes if I pushed hard enough, but ended up barely missing that and finishing in 56:10. Still, with a stroller and monster hills, I am super pumped with that time. Ready for another one soon!
3. Complete phase 2 of Celebration Nutrition services updates.
This got completely scrapped. Going in a whole different direction. My focus right now is on doing a few things well and not ALL THE THINGS, even though all the things are super awesome and I really want to do them. They will come, in time.
4. Plan WEEKLY date nights.
The husband ended up being gone for half the month, so this did not happen. But the weeks he was home, we snuck out, even if just for a quick lunch to catch up.
5. Walk 10k steps every day (work days make this surprisingly difficult!)
Averaged about 5 of 7 days each week, which I will take. Some days are so taken up with client appointments that I don’t get a run in, let alone a stroller walk. And I’ve noticed my body loves having one day completely off, so on Sundays we rest.
- Pick and sign up for Marathon #6.
- Set up a new meal prep routine that works.
- Network weekly to build brand awareness.
- Donate milk to Mother’s Milk Bank.
- Outsource and time manage better to maximize work days.
