August Goals

This last month was crazy busy and wonderfully summery. It was a great month filled with memories for us.

But I will be honest, I did not get much done from my goals for the month. However, I think I nailed the one for me which I think dictated not getting anything else done.

But for giggles, let’s see how I ranked up.

  • Fitness-
    • Do BodyPump once a weekend. I didn’t do this one. We had so much going on during the weekends that I just couldn’t find an hour that I was able to do this realistically. In taking my last goal to heart, this took a backseat to reading a book on our patio every weekend. I do want to do this though because I think it will help with my running. 
    • Start 10K training. I did this, and it has been going really well. My weekend workouts were more focused on this than the BodyPump.
  • House Tasks-We did nothing on this list. What can I say, we enjoyed our lives this month.

    • Finish Living Room Wall
    • Fix the flower beds around the trees
    • Clean the craft room
  • Something with George-Introduce him to sidewalk chalk. I honestly forgot about this until this weekend. He had a lot of fun at swim lessons though! And we took him to a tractor pull which I think can replace the chalk experience.


  • Something with Tom-go to dinner and a movie. We were going to go this last weekend, but the movie times never worked out for us. The downside of living in a small town.
  • Something for mepermission to be lazy. We did have a lot of plans this month, but anytime we had a free afternoon, I spent it out on our porch reading books. Our house is barely clean (I just did laundry and dishes…) but it has been so great to just enjoy myself and give myself some me time that isn’t at 9pm in the evening.



  • Fitness-
    • Do cross-training a couple times a week.
    • Keep up with my 10K training.
  • House Tasks-

    • Organize George’s toys-its time to go through them again. We just have too many out, and so many that he doesn’t play with. We need to pair it down.
    • Build a new porch-We want to get this done before fall and before we have a pit of leaves in the trench.
    • Stain the deck-Once the porch extension is done, we need to stain the whole thing.
  • Something with George
    • Introduce him to sidewalk chalk. Trying this again…
    • Celebrate him turning TWO!
  • Something with Tom-We had a great month last month, but maybe this will be the month for a dinner and a movie? This rotating schedule is the pits in the way of making plans. When Tom has a free weekend it’s like we are trying to make up all the lost time and pack everything in for George and Tom to bond, which leaves our bonding out on the limb. Not this month! (Right?)
  • Something for medo some research to purchase more natural make-up. I use a tinted moisturizer right now, and I am wanting something with a little more coverage. I have been super cheap about my facial care. I think it is time for me to splurge a little with what goes on my face. I haven’t purchased foundation in a looonnng time since I have been using just tinted moisturizer for probably the last decade so I don’t even know where to start. I do know that I want a little more than drugstore and something natural, but also easy to do. I am not into any of that contouring business.  Any suggestions?

  1. It sounds like you guys had an excellent July, so who even cares if you didn’t meet your goals?! Good luck this month, and have fun 10K training! I’m doing a new workout challenge right now, but I am hoping to start running when the 90 days are up and I’m in better shape to run than before!! I’m almost half way through it now, so here’s to hoping! 🙂

I would love to hear your thoughts!
