October is here!! October is a notoriously busy and fun month. Between embracing the change of seasons, Homecoming and other events, and squeezing in all of the fall activities, there is hardly time to enjoy it all before the chill of winter arrives. I also view October as the unofficial kick off to the holiday season. After Halloween, there are so many holidays that are centered around enjoying time with your loved ones.
All that being said, here is what is on my bucket list for this month:
How could someone who enjoys all the #basic fall things go this long without ever going apple picking?
Visit a Pumpkin Patch
Is it really October without pumpkins? Last year, I experimented with some pumpkin seed recipes and I hope to do so again this year!
Themed TV or Movie Marathon
Stranger Things!? Harry Potter!? Scary Movies!? The possibilities are endless.
Complete “Move” Activity Ring
Fitness goal of the month! I have an Apple watch that I wear every day. I love taking note and trying to complete the different activity goals daily…but sometimes it just doesn’t happen. I have never had a “perfect” month so I want to challenge myself to complete my move activity goal every day this month.
Read One Book
Now that I am in grad school, I feel like I have less time (and desire tbh) to read for pleasure. I always feel guilty, like if I time to read, then I should be reading course material and not fun books. However, I’m hoping to squeeze at least one book in this month.
No Spend Weekend
This is hands down going to be the hardest goal on this list…we’ll see how this goes.
No Fast Food
My fast food intake has been extremely high lately. I’m hoping to curb that craving by completing this challenge.
Try a Lentil Recipe
I’ve never had lentils before, but I have heard that they are a good source of protein and fiber. Decided to give them a try!
Take one of these challenges with me! I could definitely use someone to hold me accountable for completing the No Spend Weekend. If you have any ideas of activities that I can do to survive the weekend without shopping (my FAVORITE activity…next to eating) please comment below!
