WOOHOO! After 3 long weeks away, I'm finally on my way back to the US! Plus, I'm stopping through DC for a little much needed R&R and some quality time with the bf. Even better than giant plates of smoked meat!
Since it's the last Friday of October, I'm sharing how I did on my October goals and setting five goals for this month as usual on the Friday Five Link Up.
Oh and the check-in people had witches hats on, so I guess it's also Halloween! Kind of missed the whole lead up here in Asia so I don't have a festive theme post or anything like that. But yay go eat some candy and pumpkin flavored things! Anyhoo...
Smashed this with 16 workouts in 21 days, despite one still-not-built yet hotel gym.
2. Eat delicious food in moderation
I definitely did the first part though. Partial credit?
Ok so my average was technically juuust shy of this magic number. But if you take out the 3-4 nights when I only slept 4-5 hours because of crazy early morning flights, I definitely hit this mark most of the time.
Nailed it, thanks to some awesome guest posts. Thanks so much for all the awesome content guys!
Still didn't get out a TON but I did do a little Jakarta sightseeing, and even took a (terrifying) carriage ride around Monas. And if wading through a sea of whizzing motorbikes and taxis in a tiny horse drawn vehicle isn't fun, then I don't know what is!
1. Cook at least one new recipe
Since I've been gone so much lately, it's been ages since I cooked anything new. Got to get back in that kitchen!
2. Lift weights 3 times a week
I started following this strength training plan and advice on sticking with it from Greatist and I've really liked how it feels to have a consistent lifting program again. Going to keep it up at least 3 times a week.
Still not a morning person but this is going to be more important than ever with it turning into fall and the days getting shorter while I was gone.
4. Enjoy Santa Barbara
It's almost 9 months after my move! But, since I've spent a lot of that time traveling, I still feel pretty new in town. Have to spend more time exploring, settling in, and and enjoying everything the city has to offer.
5. Take some down time
In a frantic last-minute rush to do ALL THE THINGS, I played in a volleyball tournament, ran a race, visited friends out of town, or all three four weekends in a row before my trip. Some lazy weekends spent with reality TV, books, or nature are definitely in order.
Q: Any big plans this month? Or big plans to do nothing?
