Some Fall Goals

Over the summer I realized I never made any New Year’s resolutions back at the beginning of the year. I figured I would make some July Resolutions and work on them for the rest of the year. I just checked them out and realized they needed a little upgrade so this fall, I am making a commitment to concentrating on a few fall goals.

Fall Resolutions

  • Run another half marathon

This is on my July list and includes running 4-5 more races. Since, I have run (kayaked and biked) the GAC, run the Yankee Homecoming 5k, and I have the Brickman Triathlon at the end of the month. I just need a add a couple more races to the docket and I will have this goal fulfilled.

On the half marathon front – I really want to run the Half Merrython in December I just need to sign up. It is run by the same event company as the Twin Lobster was and if you volunteer to work at a race, you get a free race entry…boom! Sounds like a plan to me.

  • Check in on Mint.com weekly

Saving money is always a goal of mine but now that SL and I are getting married (!!!!) I really want to make sure my hard earned money is not being blown on stupid things. Logging in to Mint.com on a weekly basis (at least) will help keep me accountable and keep my spending on track.

  • Be more gluten, dairy and sugar free

I wouldn’t say my diet is bad but there is tons of room for improvement. I find that I don’t feel my best after eating these things so being more conscious of them will do nothing but help. And on a selfish point, SL and I are hoping to schedule our engagement pictures this fall and I want to look stunning!

  • Schedule my life better

This was also on my July Resolutions list and it was something I totally failed at this summer. But that is what summer is for, spontaneity and randomness. Now the easy, breezy days of summer are coming to an end I have to get back on the scheduling bandwagon. I have a triathlon coming up in a few weeks that I have done nothing for. Time to get my act together friends.

So there they are, my resolutions/goals for the fall. And since the fall technically lasts until the end of December, these will be my goals for the rest of the year. Come 2015, I will have a new set of  things to work on which may or may not be all wedding/honeymoon related (can’t wait!!).

Have a wondering Monday Tuesday and enjoy the fact that it’s a short work week!

What do you want to accomplish as 2014 winds down?
