A list that's related to fall (AKA heaven)

Sarah over at Vitamin G inspired me with her post yesterday about her fall health goals. (Read it here). It got me thinking about what I want to do this fall for me - whether it's health, fitness, or just in general. 

Here's what I've come up with:
  • Make an optometrist appointment - I'm usually very good about going to the eye doctor every year but I realized the last time I really remember going I wasn't married yet. We're coming up on our 2nd wedding anniversary - not good.
  • Along with that, I need to get back to the dentist. I had a root canal done last summer (my first) and it wasn't a horrible experience but I get so freaked out about the thought of the dentist I just push it out of my head. I definitely need a cleaning and I'm sure I have a cavity or two. (Ugh, the dentist - maybe this is why I hate it so much?)
  • Find a new general doctor for Ben and me. The guy we see now is nice but I feel like he always hurries me out of the office and gives me advice that is not worth my co-pay.
  • Treat exercise as something good as opposed to something required. (Lisa and Amber have been inspiring me with all their running). 
  • Take more walks - yes for exercise, but fall is my favorite season and I really want to enjoy the weather this year - and not just on the way to and from work every day.
  • Read more! (More to follow about the 2009 Busy Bookworm Challenge)

I'm sure I will think of more as I go along, but I think this is a good list to get me started. What are some things you want to do or accomplish this fall?

I'd definitely have to say taking more walks as well. I love the fall with the changing leaves and cooler temperatures. And I'm sure my dog would love the extra time outside as well.

I agree with Nicole, having a dog really makes me find the time to get outside and walk. If you ever need a walking buddy, Bella is always available :)

Fun! I definitely want to spend more time outside soaking up the last of the warm weather and watching the beautiful leaves change colour! Fall really is my very favourite season!

Well, I joined WW last October, right before Halloween, and I would like to reach goal by Halloween, which is the day I run my 1/2 marathon. I am about 8 pounds from goal, so I am getting close, but I know these last 8 are going to be tough to take off. And if I'm not at goal by 10/31, I am going to try to not be disappointed with myself!

Other than that, I just want to get off to a good start at my new job. I want to come in and prove that they made the right decision when they hired me!

Your list is great, though. I really should try to find a general practitioner, too. I go to someone right now but I don't love her. It's really freaking hard to find a doctor. I get overwhelmed by all the choices I have by living in a really big city. I have a OB that I go to, but need to find a Gp that I like as well!
