My Goals for September

So I saw that Erica is hosting a monthly goals link-up, and I think it's an awesome idea! I've wanted to become more purposeful with my time right now while I am searching for a job, so setting a few goals for the month should really help with that. Without further ado, my goals for September are:

One. Lose 10 pounds. This is totally do-able, as I did it already last month, but will entail working out 5x a week (I am doing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred) and sticking to my daily calorie count with less carbs and less added sugar (I use Lose It! the app and I really like it). 

Two. Get some part-time work. Searching for an entry-level attorney position in this job market, especially where I live in semi-rural PA, is not an easy task. I am applying for everything that semi interests me within a 30 mile radius, but unfortunately there really are not that many jobs out there right now. I am trying not to get discouraged, but it is really hard. So for now, especially until we get the bar results in mid-October (when I am hoping more job possibilities open up, because, assuming I pass, I will actually be a licensed attorney and therefore more employable at that point), I am going to try to somehow make some extra money on the side. I will have to see how this pans out. 

Three. Finish my first knitting project. I just bought this book and now that I have put it out there for the world to see, I have to take the plunge and actually start my first project! 

At the end of September I'll do a follow-up on these goals, so wish me luck!! What are your goals for this month?

  1. Good luck accomplishing your goals, I know you can do it!

  2. Maybe I need to set some September goals. I think making more time for just me and not school etc. would def. be on the list!

  3. Love your goals!! I just got the loose it app and I LOVE it! Awesome job loosing the 10lbs pounds!! And good luck with the jobs! Can't wait to see how well you do at the end of the month!

  4. Good luck with accomplishing those goals! My September goals are to finish the sketches for two kids books that will be coming out next year. I'm already behind the deadline (just a little). I'd love to hear how it all worked out for you at the end of the month! X Jane
