August is basically over folks!
Is this year just flying by or is it just me?
I am going to start doing this at the end of every month to reinvest in myself at the start of each month. I think it’s a great way to keep focus and to center myself in the ideas that i want to keep in the front of my brain.
- Drink More Water. I want to drink about a gallon a day which is roughly 128 ounces. I have a water bottle that is 16 ounces which means I need to refill it 8 times throughout the day. Challenge Accepted. It’s no secret that water helps your body function better, and my skin could surely use it.
- Exercise 5 times a week. This shouldn’t be hard as I tend to go to the gym almost everyday anyways, but I don’t want to become complacent. I want to also try new classes at the gym…. may be zumba… who knows. I miss spin but it isn’t available when I need it, and I refuse to go to the crazy Cycle Zone class…. they are insane.
- Putting Money Away for Savings. My husband and I used to be vikings when it came to saving money. We had a robust account and felt pretty secure. When I left my office job, I was technically unemployed for a year so that savings went straight out the window. I’m starting September by putting $1000 away in our savings account and not touching it unless we absolutely need to. We aren’t saving up for anything in particular, but it’s nice to have a cushion.
- Try 5 New Recipes. Other than Blue Apron. We will be trying 3 new recipes a week with that, but I want to use the many cookbooks I have to branch out. We always get stuck in the rut of cooking the same things and frankly there is no need to be bored with our food. I feel that boredom leads to eating out too much and that is where the unhealthy habits live. Boo unhealthy habits.
So there are my goals for September. What are you changing up in your routine to reinvest in yourself?
