I hate making excuses. Usually when I make a goal for myself, I complete it. Without the goal, I might not be super motivated, but I’m very competitive and don’t like to fail.
But as for July and those goals I made…I have to make an excuse. At least it’s a decent one! Within the space of two weeks, right near the middle/end of July, we went from hearing about a job opening to moving to a new town to start said job! Needless to say, I was hella-busy packing and making arrangements and trying to keep up with my running schedule (half-marathon training). As it is, I missed three runs, including my 11-miler. :(
Let’s take a look at what my goals were for July:
Establish a routine
This transition hasn’t been easy, and the kids have had an especially hard time with their sleep schedules. I want to take our time during the month of August and focus on getting settled in our new home, but by the time September rolls around, I want to have a regular daily routine worked out that works for me and the kids.
