October Goals – September Update 2020

Here’s how my September Goals went….

To plant oregano, parsley and cilantro in the pots that have dead plants in them #RIP

GOAL MET: I planted parsley and cilantro. I couldn’t find oregano seeds for some reason. BUT, in place of the oregano, I planted a salsa mix which contained, tomatoes, jalepeno peppers and green peppers. Making your own salsa is soooooooo much better than store bought. If you are starting off with a garden, I recommend planting veggies for salsa before anything else. As you can see, the salsa mix have yet to grow but hopefully there will be more progress when I do my October update.

To get more Vitamin D via sun

GOAL NOT MET: It’s just been two fricking hot for me to go out in this humidity. But by the looks of it, the first week in October should be niiiiiiice! Guarantee I’ll be soaking in some sun in October!

Get back to Yoga

GOAL NOT MET: Although I barely did any yoga this month, I did get some cardio in. I have been walking at least 1.5 miles to 3 miles, doing 20 crunches, 20 arm and shoulder exercises and 20 leg squats each day. I’m starting to see a difference in my body already and feel really good.

OCTOBER GOALS

Publish one post on my blog a week

I am soooo inconsistent with this blog! So my goal is, one post, once a week. It’s not like I don’t have stuff to say because there’s always weird crap going on in my head that I feel comfortable sharing, I’m just lazy. There I said it!

To clean my car!

Guys, the inside of my car is a total mess and it needs help. I just put 4 brand new tires on it and got it serviced. It’s got about 91,000 miles on it and drives like a champ, so it’s time for it to get a nice detailing.

Exercise

To continue with my exercise routine that I have now and maybe bump up the yoga.

I’m Back

Well it’s been a while since I’ve posted on my blog and during that time there’s been some crazy crap going on. Covid-19 has taken over our lives and has also taken some lives unfortunately. During this time, I’ve done a lot of thinking and realized a few days ago how much I hate that I’ve neglected this blog for so long. It wasn’t really on purpose because most of my posts are about trips I’ve taken or concerts that I’ve been to and since that is not happening right now in our world, I never thought to go back to my roots of posting my savings, my supermarket trips, how to save money, my garden, couponing, stock piling, food, drinks or anything else that does not involve concerts, sporting events or travel in general. Soooooo, I’ve said all of that to say this, after a long hiatus and beating myself up, I’M BACK!

Also, during this time, I have been working hard on Stacy’s Patio Tunes and learning so much about the radio/music business. When I was a kid, I always wanted to be a DJ. In fact, that is what I wrote as my “what I wanted to be when I grew up” answer in my 8th grade yearbook!  It ONLY took me 30 something years to actually DO something about one of these dreams of mine but someone took a chance on me, Cate Meighan, and after I had messaged her inquiring about how I could become a part of Boom Radio, which was totally out of my comfort zone by the way, she messaged me back, gave me the opportunity and I’ve been learning from her ever since. I’m forever grateful to her.

I also cannot forget to mention that we bought a few acres of land in North Georgia and I guarantee that there will be posts and videos as soon as we are able to get up there. This is our experiment to see how rogue we can go (with Wifi, of course!). We are not leaving our permanent residence but if the world keeps getting weirder and weirder, you never know!

Hope everyone is well and staying safe!

See ya soon!

Five December Goals

Five December Goals

Here are 5 goals that I want to reach for December.

1. Stick To My Christmas Budget

Okay, I don’t REALLY have an actual “budget” for Christmas gifts but I’m going to think outside the box for some of my gifts this year.  For example, gift bags filled with little items such as candy, chapstick, candles and special gifts that that particular person may use.

One of my favorite bags is the Littles Carry All by Thirty One.  You can fill it up with all kinds of goodies and the bag can be used for many things such as a tissue holder or an organizer for your remote controls to name a few.

2. Walk 2 Miles A Day

I found this cool app called Pacer.  You can keep track of your steps and you can do daily stretches and challenges with your friends.  I know that there are a lot of other apps out there that do the same thing but I like this one and I like that it has daily stretch videos.  If you want more features I think it’s $3.00 a month and you can have coaching and guidance to reach your goals.  My walking has been around a mile a day since I’ve started and KNOW I can do better.

3. Get Back To Yoga

I used to do yoga once a week with an instructor but she is no longer teaching yoga on Saturdays and hasn’t been for over a year.  I’ve done beach yoga a few times but honestly it is way too hot in Florida for me to do yoga on the beach.  I’m very sensitive to heat (mostly humidity) and sometimes feel like I cannot breathe if I’m accelerating myself too much in the heat.  When wintertime comes in Florida the weather is usually perfect for me but still prefer being inside while doing yoga.

So…..I’m going to get back to yoga and do it in the privacy of my own home.  We have decluttered our spare bedroom which has given me room to start back up!

4.  Continue To Declutter The House

We’ve been doing a good job with going through crap that we do not need or want anymore.  It’s been therapeutic to be honest.  In December, I want to declutter to the point where our tiny house looks bigger than a mansion!  Okay, maybe that’s a little far fetched, but we can sure as hell make it feel like it!

5. Pay Half Of Our Cabinet Bill Off

We spent $3200 (with shipping) for our new Malibu White Shaker Cabinets from Cabinets To Go and they will be delivered this Friday.  We still need to purchase the countertops but I would like to pay at least half of what we purchased the cabinets for to pay for our countertops.  Hubby and I will be demolishing and installing our new kitchen ourselves,  May the force be with us!

So there you have it.  My December goals.  I’m going to try everything in my power to achieve them all.  Follow me on Instagram for updates on our progress.

What are your December goals?

Till next time..I’ll see ya soon!
