September was a mess, to say the least. Not only did school crank up, but sickness rocked our house, well mostly just me! Spider bites, nausea, and an appendectomy made it a rough month for me. Despite the craziness and busyness, September was still a pretty good month with a lot of accomplishments.
12 in 2012. Out of all the accomplishments, the one big thing I was unable to do was try the 30 by 30 program. Once I finally picked out the clothes, I never had a chance to take pictures, let alone try using them in my wardrobe.
Reading. I have completed 66 (and a half) books so far this year, which means I read an impressive 10 books this month! Tomorrow Mark of Athena comes out, which will kick off this month's reading pretty quickly! While I have 34 books left to read this year to hit my goal (which seems a bit out of reach), I am excited to have made such progress this year.
Cooking. In the midst of all the school and sickness, I was able to try making some new things, including a few versions of Mac and Cheese. This month should be full of baked goods, since we love apple and pumpkin flavors!!!
Health/Fitness. With being sick and busy, I was only really able to keep up with my daily stretching/yoga without getting to spend a lot of time at the gym or working out at home. As I recover from surgery, I should be able to get back to my normal yoga routine soon and add in some walking until I can begin using machines/weights.
The goal for October is to begin preparing for the holidays -- Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas -- especially by setting up plans to see family and friends and begin baking lots of yummy snacks!!! School gets a bit of a break this month; one class ends in two weeks (gasp!) and I get a week-long break before beginning a new class. Greek continues through the month with another exam looming at the end of the month.
