Insane Goals for October~Reviewed

November 2, 2011

Last month I had so much fun doing this meme hosted by   Simply Rebekah that I have decided to do it again this month.

Here are  were my goals for October

Weight Lost Goals

My weight is still stuck at 63/64kg . I am aiming to bring down the number to 62/63kg by the end of this month.

( Still aiming for this for November.. as STILL STUCK.. I blame it on the fact that I’m still breastfeeding Tiger girl and

My routine would be

    • Stair climbing (x2) 5 times a week ( Not done faithfully)
      Zumba WII 3 times a week ( need to do it !!)
    • Increase intake of fruits and water.
    • Eat smaller portions of baked products or only a bite size and pass on the rest of the bakes to others to devour  Have been sharing all my food with all the kids.
    • Try to get more sleep at night if possible (still a dream as she still wakes up alot!!)

Household maintainance

  • Organize the kids library and sort out the books. (3/4 sorted out)

    When you master the manual settings on your camera, then please pass on the knowledge to me! I take all my own pictures for my blog (and don’t usually think they are that bad), but I could certainly use a lesson.

    Good luck for November and thanks for linking up!
