Monthly Goal Check In

And just like that another month has flown by. The weather here is starting to feel like fall, and fingers crossed it stays for another 8 weeks (a girl can dream). At the beginning of every month I recap my goal progress from the previous month. Publicly sharing holds me more accountable and I believe has helped me stay on better track this year. You can check out my previous goal check ins:  January / February / March / April / May / June / July / August and my original post here.


The good:

  • I’m still absolutely loving training with Annie. Her workouts push me way harder than I would push myself and I’m feeling strong
  • Made it to hot yoga twice with friends (thanks Al + Nat!) and it kicked our butts both times!
  • I finally took progress pictures again
  • Feeling better about my nutrition – and also working

What I need to work on:

  • Cooking @ home more
  • Swimming laps – finally got back in the pool last week after a month off. Going to try to make it a weekly thing!
  • Keeping up with 2-3x a month of yoga


The good:

  • I finally finished You Are a Badass (loved it) and now just started Extreme You
  • Finally back to donating, and sent money to Puerto Rico via UNICEF
  • Gratitude

What I need to work on:

  • putting all the positive out into the Universe. [probably just going to re-read You Are a Badass until I feel calmer]
  • stopping the comparisons


  • We spent a few days up at Sleeping Bear Dunes right after Labor Day and the weather could not have been more perfect. It is SO gorgeous up there.
  • I headed down to Cincinnati again to visit my sister and best friend and it was a great girl’s trip!


  • I’m hoping to visit my other sister (hey Shannon) this month as well as head to a small local music festival to celebrate B’s birthday
  • I would love to make it over to Chicago this month or next, we’ll see!


Alright friends, I think that’s about it! How are your goals progressing for the year?

xo, Maddy
