My goal for August

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

I can't believe it is August already! My bday is in 2 weeks and I am not looking forward to it. It will mark the last year of my 20's. Not wanting my 30th to come. This is my last month of summer vacation too. I feel like I have not accomplished anything but yet I have gotten lots of stuff done, just so much more to do. Yesterday I made a nice spreadsheet of my to do's for the entire month. At least the major restorations are done (except the backyard, which it has been so darn hot!)

We just book a trip to Chicago for Labor Day weekend/our 8yr wedding anniversary. Plus is falls between mine and Jasons bday so part of our bday too. Then back to school. Yipee! I am not looking forward to 5 days/1 night each week and thats just 3 classes.

Getting to go out and do some yard work, blah! On a good note, the scale moved the right way today...I am down 1.4lbs! Jason and I started working out together yesterday. We got a new Weider Pro 6900 weight machine this weekend. I put it together all by myself Sunday and Monday. It is nice. Hard for me to do some of the exercises but I will get there!

So my goal for August:
Lose 5 more lbs (2 lbs by my bday on the 16th)
Blog 1 a week
Be consistent with ST

Have a great day

    emoticon 30 really -- lucky you -- you are just starting to live!!! Enjoy your last days of 20 and then get ready for your 30's emoticon

You have to be so proud for the weight loss and then setting up the machine all by yourself.
Enjoy your vacation time and once you start school and get back in the swing of things it will be fine!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like you've got a productive August in store. Good for you putting the thing together. Once upon a time I did stuff like that, now I look at the directions, shrug and hand it off to hubby. That doesn't say good things about me at all I think.

Back to school is hard from the other side of the "big desk" as well. Trust me, you're teachers aren't any more excited to be back than you are. You're so close to done though!

Have fun in Chicago!

    I have never minded whatever age I am or have been at, and I'm 73 now! It's all in your mind, and if I want to pat myself on the back a bit I would go so far as to say I've always liked who I am, and how I look.

But Happy early Birthday, and I have a feeling you will reach that goal of yours. And live it up in August, make each day precious, sleep late when you want, as it will be over when August is over -- then work hard with those classes, but keep enough energy to get in a good workout!

    I actually loved turning 30. Then 40...not so much! Now I'm creeping up on 50.

Your goals are good - achieveable! Enjoy your trip and the last of your summer! Make the best of everything ahead of you:)

    I WILL FINALLY BE STARTING MY LAST CLASS. I CAN'T WAIT. HAVE A HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND CONGRATS ON SETTING SUCH GOOD GOALS. I AM TERRIBLE ABOUT SETTING MONTHLY GOALS. I USUALLY DECIDE AT THE BEGINNING OF THE WEEK WHAT I THINK I CAN DO AND JUST STRIVE FOR THAT.
