I love summer because it brings a ton of sunshine and reasons to spend a lot of time outside. With that, I also feel like it keeps you super busy!! There’s nothing wrong with that, but seriously, June went by in a flash!
This month was filled with lots of great things…
- Remembering that we all started somewhere…
- Celebrated National Running Day!
- Started seeing a difference in my “off-season” training plan
- Went to the Summer X Games!
- Shared my Ladder Track Workout (be ready to sweat!)
- Experienced the Alter G for the first time
- Signed up for my next race… with a very special person!
- Shared tips on how to find a running coach
- Went to EDC Vegas!
- …and didn’t recover from EDC Vegas…
- Shared some of my current favorites, including my new standing desk
And time for the… goals update! Can you believe we are already halfway through the year?!
1. PR in every distance
- No races this month… but BIG plans for the fall. Just wait and see. 🙂
2. Strengthen and stretch
- I finished up a strength training challenge with a friend and once our summer vacation is over, I’ll be hitting the strength workouts 3x a week… or so the plan goes.
3. Read one book a month
- January: Doctor Sleep by Stephen King
- February: 32 Candles
- March: I started reading one of the books I bought in Australia!
- April: Hamster Revolution | Oz Principle | Revenue Disruption
- May: Slacker central.
- June: Finished my Australia book: “The Gentleman’s Garden” by Catherine Jinks (I would give it 3 stars out of 5… it was a slow read — hence why it took me three months to read! — but the ending took it from two stars to three.
4. Continue to embrace my craftiness
- I FINALLY finished a baby blanket for a friend… it was a LONG work in progress but happy to have it done.
- This may seem bizarre, but I finally made a plan of attack for some of my crafting supplies. I used to be WAY into scrapbooking and had this machine called a Cricut. Now there’s been a turn to digital scrapbooking and it’s time to get rid of some supplies… you know, part of #5 instead of just collecting dust! But it’s been hard to admit that I will likely not use this stuff and don’t need it… sound crazy? I know.
5. Get in a better financial state
- Remember that debt snowball that we kicked off in April? Going strong… in fact, PAID OFF A CREDIT CARD this month!!
What was your favorite part of the month? Do you have a hard time selling your old things, even if you don’t use them anymore?
