August Goals and July Recap

Okay, I epically failed at July Goals! It was bad, it was real bad!

These were my July Goals.....
1.Try 8 new recipes. 
Oh I got so close on this one. I tried 7 new recipes in July. If I had realized I was that close, I would have made something on July 31st, just so I could have accomplished this goal!
2.Finish my vintage metal chairs I have been working on since last fall.
Haha, yeah right! What was I thinking when I made this a goal. I have made progress but this project was way bigger than I ever thought!
3.Finish painting the deck
Nope didn't finish then one either.  There was some good progress made.  I've got about 1/4th of it painted. I should probably quit typing this blog post now and go paint!
4.Read 2 new books.
Hey guys I actually did do this one! This month I read 90 minutes in heaven, and Room.
 5.Run 3 days a week
I don't think I actually ran 3 days a week, so I technically didn't complete this goal. However I have been running and I can almost run a full mile with no walking. I'm sure someone is laughing at this but considering I couldn't run 10 feet when I started this is pretty amazing in my book haha!
6. Write at least one blogpost a week.
Bada-bing Bada-boom baby! I wrote 12 posts in July so check I completed that goal!

So here it goes....

August Goals
- Paint an accent wall in my room
-Finish Painting the deck 
-Read 3 new books
-Get my office a little more organized
-Keep running
-Write at least 2 blog posts a week
Maybe I can do a little better on my goals this month! Classes starts back up, two co-workers are on maternity leave, and I have a trip planned but I can make it happen right?!?!

Linking up with The Nectar Collective


  1. What did you think of Room? I've been looking at that book. Good luck on your goals this month!
