I can't believe it's November !
- CrossFit 3x per week.
I went to CrossFit three times during the entire month of October (I feel so guilty even admitting this). It was a combination of being busy, being out of town, and being lazy, and now my clothes are all too tight and I feel like all my muscle has disappeared. And I really missed it! I forgot how much I enjoyed the workouts and all my CrossFit buddies.... Who were so happy to hear that I passed the bar exam!
Especially now that I have a car again, which means I can leave 10 minutes before I need to be there instead of 30 minutes before when I had to take the bus... There is no excuse not to go!
- Eat out less.
I spent WAY too much money this month on going out to eat. I am bringing my lunches to work way more often this month and ordering pizza and sushi way less. I've been making a serious effort to get my debts paid down (I cut up one of my credit cards at the end of September), and seeing how much money went to Subway/Cosi/McDonald's/Taco Bell that could have gone to paying that off makes me so mad. I'm going to shoot for only eating out twice a week at work and bringing lunch at least 3x per week.
- Eat more veggies.
I always say this. But for real. More veggies! Less crap!
- Be a better CASA
I volunteer as a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate), and I've been a crappy volunteer lately! This month I'm going to make a visit to the girls at their foster home at least once and attend family mediation at the end of the month. I haven't been to visit in a while because the foster home is wayyyy far on the south side and I had to borrow a car to get there... Problem solved! (noticing a theme?)
- Go to Mass!
I won't admit how many times I went in October in case my mom reads this, but let's just say I need to make it more of a priority this month. Especially now that I have a car again... No more excuses! (Can you tell that I blame stuff I don't want to do on not wanting to take the bus?) (also - I know a lot of people say you don't need a car in Chicago, but it sure makes life a whole lot easier if you have one)(Also - not sure about these new changes to the Mass going in to effect at the end of the month. Have a feeling it's going to be really hard to get people to change what they say!)
- Get Sworn In
Not really a "goal" because it's definitely happening, I just felt like mentioning it as something I'm excited about coming up this month. :)
- Write a blog post (or several) about bar exam stuff
I know I keep saying that I'm going to do this and I really will! I just don't usually put a lot of time in to what I'm blogging (yeah yeah yeah, I know that's probably really obvious since it's just always rambling stuff I type out on the bus), but I actually do have a lot to say and I'd like it be a coherent post that is actually helpful to people.
Okay - I'll revisit these goals at the end of the month and let you know how I did. Because you care.
I don't anticipate having too many problems, except for the eating out thing.... I just love crappy food. WHY IS FAST FOOD SO GOOD????
