Monday Motivation and August Goals

Today is shaping up to be quite the day.  We have to run to the hospital for an appointment and labs at 2 different clinics. Then its to the gym for some sweat and swimming. Then it's home for meds and recovery.

This weekend really did a number on me but I really am determined to keep my chin up and face this week down like I own it.  Afterall by the end of the week I will officially be 5 years from 40. Ohmygod. Don't worry Im not one of those girls who are afraid of getting old, I made it this far, you better believe Im thankful for that!  And I hear that 40 is the new 30 so Im practically still 25.  Prime!

I am down 5 lbs this month. One doctor was a little worried that it seemed to have happened over night, but it hasn't come back either so we are calling it a win. Another doctor tells me if I just move more I will be less fatigued. Im moving, Im even more exhausted but Im still pushing through it. 

I was going to just nix the goals for this month.  I already know it's going to be September in the blink of an eye and there won't be time to do much. But Im a glutton for punishment, so Im setting them anyways. Nothing too wild. Realistic but still goals to try and reach.

Get 6 hours of sleep a night.
Read 4 books.
Lose another 5lbs.
Post 4 times a week.
Make one new recipe a week.
Try something new.

It might seem silly but the sleep is the one that terrifies me the most.  I think Im on a 5 hour average these days. Im actually scared to check my fitbit app. What's one more hour right? I think getting back into our school routine will do the trick though. I have four books already lined up so all I have to do is actually read them.  Five if I include the book Im reading with the boys.

What's on your goal list for August? Id love to know! Are you ready for the end of Summer or are you going to squeeze everything thing you can out of the month like I am?

Happy Monday! Cheers to a smooth and productive week!
