Where did July Go?

Is it me, or is summer flying by WAY too fast?!  Even though it’s not officially August until tomorrow, I’m doing my goal ‘check-in’ today.  I know once the work week starts there will be no time for self-reflection and even less for blogging.

 

July Goals Round Up:

1.Meditate more-with all of our travel this month, it has been hard to get to a yoga class. I did make time for mindful breathing, but need to continue to add quiet time each week.

2. Finish Sprint Tri-DONE!  See full post HERE and HERE!  Completed the TREK Women’s Tri and LOVED it!

3. Continue to decrease consumption of HFCS, artificial sweeteners, and soda-I am drinking more hot and iced tea and less Crystal Lite every day and avoiding foods with HFCS and other white sugars.  I made it until yesterday without soda when the BOY ordered a root beer float after a round of tennis.  Since I hadn’t had soda in two months, it tasted great!

4. Eat something new each week-This has been hard with all of our traveling. I have had less time to play at the farmer’s market or in my kitchen.  I will definitely try to find new foods and the time to share them on the blog throughout the rest of summer and into fall.

5. Work on the blog-I updated some headings but still need to work on my Eating Well and Recipe sections.  Always a work in progress and never exactly where I want it, but still having fun!

 

Overall, an ok month in terms of goals. I have definitely been eating consciously and following my Tri exercise plan despite the busy and quick moving month of July.  I am looking forward to a more relaxed August with some quality time in the kitchen.  Fun News…it’s my turn for TREAT DAY again next week!
