October Goals

October already... and what a year it has been so far. I am feeling so much like my old self its quite incredible. I procrastinated so much during my cancer journey and I let so much go. But now my home is back to its organized state.. Im cooking homemade meals again... and even doing a bit of baking.
During my illness I only had one goal.. To kick cancers butt. Well I did that alright. So now its time to make a few new ones. Not too many.. as I really want to achieve all of them.. so I think we will start slow. I think it will help to get my life back on track. Here goes....

  • Take a brisk walk outside for at least one hour... 4 days a week ~ stopping to take photos is allowed. God's World is beautiful
  • Drink eight 8oz glasses of water a day ~ you may hear me sloshing as I walk...but I need the hydration
  • Eat more raw veg .. in salads or snacks ~ I do like them but prefer cooked. But I do love Souplantation
  • Put down my reading book and pick up my bible more often ~ an extra 10 minutes a day is no hardship
  • Learn  4 new bible verses or review old ones ~ one a week should be easy

  • Continue with meal planning and look for healthier alternative recipes
  • Stick to the Housekeeping/food budget ~ recently this has been difficult because we ate out  or had takeaways because I stopped cooking...not good
  • Build my food storage ~ it pays to be prepared 
  • Research how to can and preserve food ~ I would love to start canning etc.. but not sure where to start and I haven't a jar or any other equipment to my name. But..Christmas is coming.. hint hint Santa :)
  • Remember my old motto.. A place for everything and everything in its place

  • To write blog posts at least 6 days a week
  • Go back and check my old posts as sometimes they disappear.. lose their photos or revert to draft...Not quite sure why..and these are memories I would like to keep
  • Visit my Fabulous Friends regularly and read their posts... and find some wonderful new blogs too

So thats enough for now....dont you think? I will go over it in a month and see how I've done. It should be an interesting read...to me anyway!!

Love and Hugs

  1. First of all...WooHoo! So good to have you back and what a blessing to know you DID kick cancer's backside. Your list of goals is awesome, hope you get them all done. Maybe I need to copy that list for myself!

  2. Hi Phoebe~

    Sounds like you have been through a lot the past year or so...I'm so happy that you are feeling better!

    Great list of things to work on - I may just use a few of them myself. I can see that you a great photographer - so I can't wait to see some of the photos from your walks!


  3. Those are great goals! It's so good to hear how enthusiastic you are! Blessings, GM

  4. I think those are great goals!

  5. Phoebe...those are worthy goals!! Cheering you on!! And so glad you are feeling much better. I have a dear friend who just received a stem cell transplant for multiple myeloma and she is starting to feel better as well. So happy for healing for my friends.

  6. It took me a long time to come back from my cancer. You are doing great! Those goals are not only worthy, but achievable. I often frustrate myself with setting goals there is no way I can reach. I think I am going to borrow some of yours.

  7. So thankful you are feeling more like yourself. I have many of the same goals, so I will join in with you in achieving them. One good way to meet new bloggers, is to look thru the comments of blogs you follow and click on a few each time you visit - so many of us have common interests.
