October is such a lovely time of year. Autumn is my favourite season and I love the feeling of the colder weather appearing, the seasonal fun making an appearance and thinking about the differences I can make to my life during the final months of the year.
This October I’m getting started with my newest adventure, a masters degree! I never thought I’d be saying that by the summer of 2018 I’ll be a 2 time graduate with a masters degree. I’ve challenged myself so much these past 5 years and I love who I am and who I continue to become. This is exactly why this October, I’ll be spending the month focusing on myself. Regularly exercising, keeping up with uni work, hanging out with friends, going to work, treating myself to a gift or 2 occasionally. Essentially, during October I’ll be doing anything and everything that makes me happy. Hopefully by the end of the month I can honestly say October has been the best month of 2017 yet.
In regards to fitness and health, I want to continue to go to the gym at least 5/6 times a week and continue with my healthy eating! Hopefully losing a few pounds in the process but really not keeping track of the numbers on the scale and just with how I’m feeling. I’ll measure my body once a fortnight to see whether there has been any changes but really, I just want to be healthy. I’ll be cutting down on drinking during October to really help boost a loss but still continue to have my cheat meal once a week.
During the month of October I’m going to try (really try) to have several makeup free days during each week. This is mostly because I want to really improve the condition of my skin which means giving myself the opportunity to clear my skin without clogging up my pores!
Most importantly, I’m going to really focus on my course and getting into the swing of being back at uni. Having less nights out and drinking less to make sure I help boost my immune system to go to all lectures and my part time job.
Really though, my only goal this October is to be happy, really truly happy.
With love, Beth x
