Welcome to October! (aka my birthday month!)
Q4 of 2017 is here and I’m ready to see the year out with a bang... despite the blog post title.
September felt a big sluggish for me - there was lots of rain around and some of those nights on the couch I wrote about last post. But thanks to Brooke Castillo’s September Self Coaching Scholars topic of ‘How to get it done’, I still managed to get a lot done!
So let’s look back at the month and talk about the plan for Q4.
Start regular Pilates practice
This one went really well for me. The practise of paying for and booking classes ahead of time has been a big motivator for me, rather than having a gym membership where no one minds or notices if I don’t turn up.
If you’re struggling with consistent exercise, I’d recommend booking and paying for classes ahead of time to help you get there.
I’ve been going twice a week and it’s been great for my office desk body in terms of both strength and flexibility.
I’m booked in for another fortnight’s worth of classes so will see if I continue beyond that, but I think the answer will be yes.
Tackle life admin
So much life admin for me at the moment! Sadly I forgot all about my tax return until I re-read last month’s post (oops), so will get on to that in October.
I did follow Brooke’s method of writing a big list of what needed doing and putting it in my calendar. I got around 80% done I’d say, and the rest of the time my brain talked me out of it.
I’m not feeling too bad about that though, since I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have even gotten that 80% done without this intention.
I’m planning on being pretty busy with work, coaching, Self Coaching Scholars and life in general for the rest of the year so won’t be setting any specific monthly intentions here on the blog.
I am going to focus on blogging about the topics you readers like the most - time management, routine ideas, good old imposter syndrome and relaxation.
Let me know in the comments below if I’ve missed any topics you’d like to hear more about in late 2017.
Otherwise, have a fabulous October!
