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?

July Resolutions?

I don’t think I made any New Years Resolutions this year. Oops! In my defenses I was REALLY busy in the beginning of the year with getting ready to finish school, starting up this blog and a bunch of other things.

2014 goals

I figured now that it’s July (WHAT?!?) it would be a good time to make a few resolutions or goals for the rest of the year. I have a few on the food, fitness and fun front that are worth noting.

1) Run another half marathon and a 4-5 more races

  • I have already signed up for the Great Adventure Challenge which I am really excited for and I will be signing up for a 5k in August that one of my besties is running (it’s her first race ever).

13.1

2) Get back to scheduling my entire life

  • I was so good at this while in school. I scheduled everything from workouts to meals to homework/class work time. Since graduating I’ve fallen off the wagon a bit a lot and need to get more schedules back in my life.

3) SAVE SAVE SAVE

  • I made big moves at the beginning of the year and shredded my credit card. I was using it as a crutch far too often and needed a reality check. I am going to put a HUGE effort into saving as much as possible this year because with a wedding coming up in 457 days!

4) Play around with new recipes

  • Cooking is fun, I just don’t do it enough, especially in the summer. For my own good health, I want to discover new and fun recipes and cook my little heart out. I’m sure SL will get on the bandwagon with this resolution.

I will check in on these as the months continue to fly by. I hope to make some progress on each and every month. This week has been weird with starting my new job and the holiday coming up on Friday (yay!) so starting next week get ready to see more food and fitness on this here blog.
