Living Well

So I only set one goal for the month of July, and it was a good one!

Mostly this is because I was so busy prepping for my Israel trip that I couldn’t think too hard about the month ahead.  But also, I really wanted to live well on my trip abroad.  And live well…I did!




This was a super active vacation with walking and hikes almost every day.  Yet, I still attempted to run (two short runs in the crazy heat) and did yoga in the mornings when I could.




Since we were typically on the move, there wasn’t much downtime for snacking.  But there was plenty of fresh and colorful veggies at every meal and I can see why the Mediterranean diet is so popular. 




Mentally, I was able to stay present and journal every day.  This made for a fantastic vacation which started the month off right.  Since then it has been all about marathon training with a little Bikram yoga thrown in for fun!




I have been catching up with my family and friends and the BOY and I hosted a Mediterranean BBQ with some of the best food we’ve ever made!




It’s amazing to me that tomorrow will be August.  How does summer always seem to fly by?!


What was the highlight of your July???




August Goals

My main goal is to support my marathon training so that I can stay healthy and happy as the miles increase! 

The plan is to do this by…

-Finishing Hal’s Book


-Eating Clean

-Sleeping Often

-And Living Well!




My secondary goal is to raise money in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as a St. Jude Hero!

  1. I can’t believe it is August already!! Summer goes way too fast. The highlight of my July was visiting DC!

  2. Love that goal to live well! Such a great reminder for all of us 🙂 Your July was fantastic… here’s to super August, too! The highlight of my July: Hmm… IM training and my first solo century ride!

  3. Summer is going by way too fast. How did you like the Bikram yoga? I did it for the first time a couple of months ago, and I really enjoyed it.
    The Medeiterrean diet and lifestyle is incredible. Such good zen vibes and colorful food.

    • Yes I did well with Mediterranean eating! I thought that the Bikram was interesting. There were parts that I liked but overall I found it a little strict and found that I like a vinyasa flow class better because it’s different each week. I still have some free passes though so I’m going back again!
