I have to say, September has probably been my favourite month of the year so far! It just felt like a month of pure joy and it was the happiest I’ve ever been I think. So I’m definitely hoping this feeling continues into October, but lets see how I did with my goals first…



Don’t be as hard on myself. Granted this was kind of a tricky one to manage, but I tried hard this month to go easier on myself and calm the negative self-talk. Obviously this is something to still work on, but I feel I have achieved it at times and I’m also trying to include more positive affirmations in my everyday life which I always think helps too.

Keep up running. I feel very proud of myself to say I kept up with Couch to 5k this month, and I’ve just started week 5 which is exciting! I’m only one run in so far but it wasn’t as awful as I thought it was going to be. I think my stamina has improved a lot whilst doing it so far.

Spend more time on the blog. I FINALLY got all our wedding posts up, and it was such a nice thing to share on the blog. They seem to of went down a treat, so thank you to you guys for following along and reading them!



Listen to my body more. This is something that I’ve been on quite a journey with, but in October I want to focus on listening to my body more. Seeing if it wants to work out, rest, and what type of foods I’m really craving instead of just heading to get biscuits as soon as my tummy grumbles (I don’t do that all the time, but sometimes I swear you can’t stop me!)

Re-do our bedroom! We’re not planning a total massive over-haul of our bedroom, but we want to change our bedside tables into ladder shelves, and maybe mix up the decor in there a little. I think October will be the perfect month to do this.

Declutter and change up my Autumn wardrobe. I’m a bit flaky when it comes to clothes, they aren’t my favourite thing in the world but I do like to feel nice and look good, and I’ve spotted a few stuff hanging up in my wardrobe that I’m not as keen on anymore, so I need to have a good sort through. I always give my clothes to charity once I’m done with them. With giving things away, I’ll need to pick up a few bits to replace them and I’m looking forward to seeing a few newer pieces in my clothes stash.


Do you have any goals for October?

  • I love the sound of all three.. especially listening to your body more. That’s definitely something I want to work on too!

      I feel like I’m doing well with it 5 days in 😉

  • My goal for October is just keep up with my blog schedule and keep doing couch to 5K too! I’m only on week 2 but already so proud of myself for going out and doing it. And go you for making it to week 5! xx

      Thank you! It’s definitely getting harder now which I struggle with but I try and do 2 a week 🙂

    Oooh I’m excited to see what you do with your bedroom! I started running again last month, would really like to start couch to 5k again cause I think it’s great for motivation!

      Ooh did you complete couch to 5k? I feel like it’s getting harder now!

  • Oh that’s so lovely that you had a fabulous September! I wish you a wonderful October too.

    I need to start Coach to 5k. I still haven’t! Im so awful, I just have NO motivation in the evening. I just want to curl up and binge watch Suits! xx

      To be fair I don’t run in the evenings, it would definitely be too hard for me to push myself out on a cold dark night!

  • Understanding and being able to listen to your body really is a goal worth working towards!

    I’ve got such an exciting and joyful October ahead that I can’t contain myself! But my goals are going public on Sunday so tune in to my blog then to figure them out 😉

      It feels so good doesn’t it? And once you get around to it it doesn’t actually take too long!

  • You’ve just reminded me to set my goals for October! Loved reading this x

    • NatalieLeanne

      Ooh I’d love to see what your goals are!

  • I need to try positive affirmations. I’d be really interested in a blog post about this hehe! I love your goals. They sound really lovely ones. I’m also thinking about decluttering at the moment as I want to be a little less clear headed and it helps me cleanse the mind! You’ve inspired me to write an October Goals for my blog!

  • Hey Nataliele Anne,
    Your goals are Interesting. Grat
