I am quite pleased with the way September has gone in terms of my Operation Gamer Girl goals. I notched four goals this month, including all three of the September-specific goals I set.
Goal #1: Get Ears Pierced
I completed this goal right at the start of the month, and thirty-ish days later they’re healing nicely. I’m afraid to take the initial piercings out — I may give it the full six weeks to heal before trying to. There’s still some crusting around the holes.
Goal #2: Save $75
This one was budget-dependent, but once the budget was assessed it was pretty easy: I took $75 out of the bank and put it in the personal safe in my closet. I wanted to physically stash the money; just putting a line item in my budget for “Gen Con funds” would just be an invitation to spend it on something else.
Goal #3: Lose 6 lbs.
I didn’t think I could pull this one off, but a concentrated effort to count calories and get to the gym four days a week really paid off. I know that when weight loss begins, those rapid first 5 – 10 lbs. are mostly water loss, but it still felt good to make this goal. With an entire month of good habits in October, I hope to continue this trend.
Speaking of October, I’m going to set those goals in another post. I’m still not sure what all I can accomplish next month.
