August Goals


I have a bittersweet feeling toward August. I see it as the beginning of the end in many ways. Yes, it's still summer, but it's the last month of summer. What follows will be cooler weather and eventually, God forsaken winter. I dread winter. I could live my whole life without it. If I could, I'd chase summer around the globe. But alas, I can't. And I'm destined to live through yet another cold season. But for four more Mondays I'm determined to soak up every last bit of summer and accomplish a few monthly goals while I'm at it.

+ Eat more fruit. Somewhat vague, but I want to avoid being over ambitious. I've never been big into "healthy foods." But I do want to incorporate more fruit into my diet. I bought grapes at the store yesterday, and I'm going to make a conscious effort to pack them in my workday lunch box. And maybe I'll eat a grape or two during the weekends as well.

+ Advocare?! Have y'all heard of Advocare? Like, everyone has, so I don't know why I'm asking. But anyway, before the holidays started I talked to an old classmate about the 24 Day Challenge and said that I'd be in touch after the new year. And I'm thinking now's the time. I'm not necessarily trying to complete the challenge this month, but at least get started. And you know, technically it's still "after the new year," so it's not like I bailed or anything... Better late than never, right?

+ Complete the butt and thigh challenge. I've oh so inconsistently been exercising alongside Cassey Ho and her fitness challenge, and this month I really want to see these two 30 day challenges through to the end. I'm on day 3 and doing well so far...

+ Go to the chiropractor. This goal is made out of pure need. I haven't been to the chiropractor in a year, and my back is about to fall apart. I can't tell you the last time I felt "good." I've gotten a recommendation for a chiropractor up here in Knoxville, and if I don't do anything else this month I at least want to make an appointment to get myself adjusted, like, before I die.

Is it painfully obvious that I'm incredibly discontent with my health and well being? If you didn't know before, now you do. I'm so unhappy with the fitness side of my life, and it's about time for a major tune up and just overall lifestyle change. I keep talking about it and attempting to make small changes, which I never stick to for long, but something's gotta give... Maybe August will be the month.
