Well Halloween is in a week, and that means that there are only two months left in 2018. I can’t say that I will be sorry to see the year-end; it has been a rough month and year. I know that in theory those moments are meant to be “growing tools”—things to learn from, and when I can reflect back without the tears—I might try to do that. Currently I’m out in Boston to attend a couple of networking events, so we shall see how this goes in terms of networking & trying to move into an industry position. The moon is going to transition into Taurus next—a lovely earth sign.

But in terms of my goals for the Aries full moon, how did I do?

I totally fell behind on starting a workout routine. I managed a week of LIIFT4 earlier this month before everything fell down the drain. Also with traveling, I’m counting my walking as my workout, though I have the room in my hotel room to try to do PiYo or some other low impact workout.

Still working on my transition plan; I have an idea of the positions—but never wrote any posts on why I picked certain positions over others. This is something I still need to work on.

Have totally failed lately at trying to mediate nightly. I know that it is helpful with trying to manage stress & anxiety—I just have been in a slightly depressed mood & wanting to “escape” with reading at night instead of trying to calm my mind for a while and then read.

I’ve been trying to be more active in the various groups (both fitness/nutrition and the science side of things). I know that I’ve posted several times in one group asking for suggestions on my linkedin account and in another with hopeful non-scale victories.

One thing I’ve realized is that I also am going to rework my 101+ goal list with a “new start” & “finish” date. This isn’t to say that I’ve given up on trying to reach the goals by the first date (9/28/2020), but I’ve realized that I’ve fallen behind on a lot of them and if I want to have a good finish (not necessarily perfect, but better than half) I need to take another look at the list and rework things.
