August Goals? Oops...

Oh jeez... in the beginning of August, I created this post with some goals for the month.  I knew that posting them would hopefully keep me accountable and more likely to get them done.

Yeaaahhh....about that....

I read the Great Gatsby on vacation, but barely even got that finished.  Normally, on a lay on the beach vacation, I read a ton.  I forgot to account for being in a different city every day and being BUSY.  Oh well.  I was able to see the new movie on the plane coming home, and confession: I liked it better than the book.

I came close, just didn't get there every week.  I managed to get around 15 miles in on vacation, but still fell short.  Now that the house planning is slowing and the vacation is done, I can focus more on running.

Meh, I went twice.  Not too broken up about this one.

This is becoming a problem.  I deep cleaned once, and now the house looks like crap again. *Sigh

I'm actually stretching before and after running, and I think I can actually tell a difference.  I've also started doing exercises to help with shin splints too.

I am much more aware of my hunching, and I really try to stand up straight.  There will be no more Hunchy Huncherson in 2014!

I will admit, I was up last night thinking about our master bathroom (one of the few things that I'm unsure about).  Besides that, I'm not even thinking about past decisions.

Alright, so I was honest and accountable, and I'm ready to start on some new goals, and keep up with the others.

What are your goals for September?


  1. It's so hard to keep up on cleaning if you are on the go all the time. I feel like its the thing that can always wait!!

  2. Whoo hoo! Progress! Meeting even some goals is better than... uh no goals. :)

  3. Hi! I just started reading your blog! What stretches do you do for shin splints? I have recently upped my mileage since I am training for my first half right now and my shins have started bothering me.

  4. Yah my house is a mess. I don't clean it as often as I'd like. You already saw my post today about eating better and exercising and I failed at that. And don't get me started on reading! I maybe read one whole book this summer? And I say whole because I started a ton just never finished them. But just like you I'm ready to start some new goals and try to finish the others! It's never too late!

  5. Oh boy the cleaning thing is never ending. Every time I turn around it needs to be cleaned again! Congrats on getting half there especially while on vacation and building a house!

  6. My September goal is to start this weight loss thing. My son in 11 weeks old and I am still wearing maternity clothes because I refuse to go buy fat clothes. I am doing this...

  7. I agree about the cleaning. It is just one thing that I can not get motivated to do!
