Goals for September

I am going to start a new Monthly Goals Posts to try and get myself motivated and accountable…

When thinking of what I wanted to include, I struggled.  Do I want this out there for family, friends and strangers to see.  Despite already posting most things that enter my mouth, and the lack of exercise I have been doing lately I am still nervous. It just puts my journey right out there, and possibly openly failing.  So I thought about it… during the month of August when I realized, isn’t that why I started this blog?? …but I decided to put it off for another month… wow, I am super-motivated 😛  

So here it is… My goals for September.

  • re-enter the mid-180s
  • Work out a minimum of 5 days a week, for a minimum of 30 minutes of JM Circuit training video, or longer doing different cardio such as bike, reformer, or treadmill, or 30 minutes combined with weights
  • Drink my minimum of 10 glasses of water a day
  • Log all calories onto www.myfitnesspal.com again.
  • Wake up at 6:30 am
  • Go to bed before Midnight
  • Go through my office and furnace/hoarding room and get rid off all that we do not use, or need…
  • Finish chicken coop!!
  • Post a clean recipe 2x/ week to try and get some more recipes on my pages
  • Spend less time online… well after blogging 😛
Wish me luck… does not seem like a lot, but for me lately it is!

Pumpkin Oats and Tea!


I feel like crap… my Dad shared his cold with me!  Nice parting gift Dad!!

Since my throat is on fire, and I am cold… a smoothie wouldn’t do!

Oatmeal is my other soft favourite for breakfast, and since the leaves are turning, and and I feel like it is Fall (I know, I know…it isn’t the 23rd yet) I went ahead and had me some PUMPKIN!!

Pumpkin oats pre-water and chia seeds

In the Oats I put some canned pumpkin puree, a scoop of chia seeds, and some cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.  I also added 6 drops of vanilla stevia.  I made about 3 servings of oats that I can heat up at a later time :)

I topped the oats with some Nature’s Path Pumpkin Granola, and a teaspoon of Marantha Almond butter. 

On the side I had some Tim Hortons’s Pumpkin Spice tea… 


Goal post will be posted later today!
