Monthly Update for September

I've completed my first month. Not my first full month, but my first calendar month. Every month I will update everyone on my challenge progress. I'll go over everything I've done over the month, including any updates since last time.

016. Don't eat fast food more than twice a month, each month [1/34]
One month down! For September, I included the whole month because I didn't want to cheat myself by only counting the days of the challenge.
021. Take multi-vitamins everyday for a month [18/30]
I haven't completed a whole month yet because I started my challenge in the middle of the month. I have 18 days so far, so I should be finished by the middle of October.
027. Take 10 whole-day breaks from the Internet [1/10]
I completed one break this month. I'm thinking about taking at least one break each month, even after I've completed my goal. I think its healthy for me. Maybe for my next list, I'll make myself take a break from the computer, instead of just the internet. What do you think?
028. Wake up before 10am every morning consecutively for a year [0/365]
I am definitely not a morning person. This one is an unrealistic goal, I might have to end up not completing this one. Ugh. I can wake up early every once in a while, but I don't think I will be able to do it for a whole year.
034. Send 50 postcards via http://www.postcrossing.com/ [18/50]
I've sent 18! I love sending postcards! I've received seven so far. I sent four today and I will send two tomorrow, so hopefully I will get some more postcards soon! Remember to check out my postcard blog, to see my postcards I've received. And if you want me to send you a postcard, then make a profile on Post Crossing, and then send me a message! Here is a link to my profile: http://www.postcrossing.com/user/missleilanie.
035. Donate 100,000 grains of rice at http://www.freerice.com/ [850/100,000]
I want to accomplish 2,000 by the end of October. Hopefully I'll have more donated soon.
047. Visit all counties in Washington (old visits may count) [10/39]

I haven't visited anywhere soon since I started this challenge. I've only listed the ones that I visited before the challenge. 
061. Watch 26 movies starting with each letter of the alphabet [6/26]
I've only watched six so far. I want to get half done in October.
063. Watch all 8 seasons of Charmed [2/8]
I completed season 2 today! Woohoo! I will probably watch some more tomorrow.
065. Hang out with friends at least once a month [1/34]
I hanged out with my friend, Stephanie, on September 29th. She had a baby in the beginning in the month. This was my first day that I was actually able to see the baby. He is so cute! I wasn't able to get any pictures though. It sucks.
068. Watch 101 movies [2/101]
Only two movies so far, Bride Wars and Marley and Me. I need to watch some more movies.
078. Put $5 in savings for every task completed [$10/$505]
I've only completed two tasks so far so I only have $10 in savings.
080. Earn $100 from blogging in one year (previous money earned does not count) [$2.69/$100]
This is only half a month's worth so its not much. Hopefully I will have a lot more by next month.
082. Write a letter to myself to be opened on the last day of the challenge
This one was accomplished in the beginning of my challenge.
087. Own at least 50 piggy banks [8/50]
I haven't bought any since last time, but so far, I have eight piggy banks. Yay!
091. Add 100 more playing card sets to my collection [4/100]
I haven't gotten any more since the last time.
092. Add 200 more DVDs to my collection [10/200]
I haven't gotten any more since the last time.
096. Reach 50 followers on this blog [10/100]
I have 11 followers so far! Yay! Keep on following, please.
097. Blog about every completed item on the list [2/101]
I've only completed two goals so far, so I only have two here, but I have blogged about everything that I've progress on so far.
099. Create weekly goals and checklists to keep myself motivated
This one was also completed in the beginning when I created my notebook that I'm using for this challenge.

I think I've done a good job so far, don't you think?
