August Goals

And so begins August. Another month, another ten goals. I had a few leftover from July, so I’m carrying them over to this month. And I’m not sure what makes me think I can complete 11 goals this month, when I haven’t been able to complete 10 over the past few months, but I’m going to try! The majority of my mini-goals are fitness focused, since that’s the area where I’ve struggled most. Eventually it will become habit, right?

As always, I’d love for you to join me! Pick a few goals from my list, or come up with your own, then share your list in the comments below.

    I loved the 30DS….but it didn’t love my knees : ( I think that I’ve now lost 35 lbs, I’m going to try it again. I REALLY want to try her body revolution, but I’m waiting to hear more reviews and I’m hoping the price will drop after the holidays. I’m currently doing Power 90 (the precursor to P90X), and it’s done wonders for me, and I recommend it to ANYONE and EVERYONE!!!!
    As for Zumba…..DO IT!!! It is so much fun! I have no rhythm what so ever, and I’m sure that everyone watching me chuckles to themselves, but it’s a fun way to work out!

    • I love your goals! So ambitious. YOu definitely have to let me know how you do! 30 DS is a definite challenge and it’s pushing (and punishing) me in ways I never expected–that must mean it’s working, right? 🙂
