1October was the start of a new me.

That’s what I told myself, anyway. I wanted October to be a month of new beginnings.

I would run 3 times a week, I would lose 7lbs and I would be my best.

October wasn’t all it cracked up to be.

I only started running last week, I didn’t lose any weight and I was almost never my best.

After the whirlwind that was my new job – things are starting to settle. But settling was never my strong point so I’m getting that itch for something busy, demanding, something that will challenge the hell out of me. S

I have some goals between now and December 25. Extravagant goals, cunning goals, goals that will keep me occupied.

Time to man the fuck up and get over those opportunities that I lost in October. We’ve a new month, a new start and I’m going to make the most of it!

The best parts of October:

  • I re-launched my fitness blog, moving it from Blogger to WordPress.
  • I wrote a successful blog post about taking your blog to the next level.
  • I started eating right again.
  • I spent a lovely evening at the cinema with Christine.
  • I bought the iPhone 6.
  • I have lots of bloggy type events to look forward to in November.

What are your highlights and lowlights of October?



  1. Some of those food pictures have made me hungry – just keep going Corinne πŸ™‚

  2. Ooh I will have to take a look at the healthy eating blog, good job on moving it to WordPress. Your pictures of healthy food above looks wonderful. I love healthy food but most of the time am lazy I need to try more. You sound like you have a fun month ahead Lucy x

  3. Love all these pics (your kitten is so damn cute! :3) Don’t worry Corinne…There’s plenty of time for changes! It’s all a matter of strong will…Do your best and even if there isn’t loss of weight or afternoons of jogging, you’ll be happy because of what you are! πŸ™‚

  4. I promised myself to gym more in October and I’ve stuck to it for the most part. I’m going on holiday at the end of the month so I need to get beach ready for that haha. Lovely pictures. xx


  5. You’re not the only one. October’s usually the peak of my year. But, after my birthday, I told myself I will attempt to live a life with no complaints… It’s a work in progress. Wishing you the best. (:


  6. I want to start ticking off some goals between now and the new year too, mostly to do with health and blogging! It would make a change to go into the new year with some goals completed under my belt instead off a twice as long as my arm list of resolutions and I will never complete!

    1. Yeah – that’s fab. Rather than waiting for the new year, let’s see what we can do in the next 2 months πŸ™‚

  7. Great attitude for November and onwards. We did like your ‘ taking you blog to the next level’ post. How come you moved your fitness blog to wordpress?

    For us October has just flown by…as with most of 2014 to be honest! Wishing you all the best with your future goals πŸ™‚

    1. Glad you liked the post!

      I moved it because I wasn’t enjoying blogger and since I’ve moved this blog to wordpress too, I wanted to move that across so I could use the same layout so it looks more ‘me’ πŸ™‚

  8. Corinne this was a lovely post. FYI, just as an outsider…You have accomplished SO much this month! From looking at your list, you have achieved more than one thing per week – and that’s not even counting all of the teeny tiny gestures you go about in your every day life, either! I always find that when I’m kicking myself for not doing enough, It helps to write down a list and read it back as if first person wrote it. At which point I realize that I have indeed got SO much more done than I could have ever expected…they just aren’t the things that I *planned* on doing. But I’ve come to embrace this – it’s spontaneity. Sure, it springs out of procrastination, but HEY it’s where all of the best ideas come from. I believe most of my best bakes were done on mornings where I cba to take a walk or write an essay. Hell, my blog was even born in the peak of exam season. These kind of achievements are all signs that we are putting too much pressure on ourselves and we can see it in the way we run away from our to-do lists. To do lists are great reminders, but don’t have any “expectations” for them. The skill of the perfectionist is running away from everything they know they can do because they want to do it so well that they fear everything screwing up…just go easy on yourself and you will work great w/out any pressure πŸ™‚ You are AMAZING and November will see your achievements unravel out even more <3 October was a revival. Love Tash! xx

    1. It’s always easy to forget the good things we’ve done and focus on the bad things, eh?

      I hope this month is a lot better!

  9. I need to shake things up a bit as I feel like I am at a standstill. I go to the gym at least once per day but I don’t eat enough so I’m pretty rubbish at making any progress lately and it’s making me sad. πŸ™
