I can’t believe it’s August! I mean, really. Where did the year go? We still have one more month of summer before my son starts school, and we’re going to make the most of it!
I’m really happy to be settled enough that I can actually set goals that I think I’ll accomplish this month. First, my fitness goals.
I’m really, really working towards cutting soda completely out…but it is my biggest vice. My mileage goals are small, but it’s the first time I’ve been able to think about mileage all year, so I’m pretty excited. My weight loss and body fat % goals are part of longterm goals: my “happy” weight of 130 and 24% body fat. And I’m researching gyms in the area with class options. When we lived downtown, I got spoiled by having a ton of different classes at all hours of the day available to me, and I’m struggling a little bit to find ones that work for me now that we have moved.
Because I define “healthy” as more than just “fitness”, I like to set “happiness” goals as well–things that make my life better or that make me happy. This month:
I love photographs, so I want to get my favorite ones hung up in our new house. I want to make sure we get some screen -free family time in this month as well as some dates with my husband–we tend to let those fall by the wayside when things get hectic. And I want to plan our winter vacation–we usually travel around the holidays and it gives me something to look forward to!
What are your August goals? Do you have goals for fitness or personal goals as well?
