August ...already?

Well, this year just went from zero to 60 in 1.2 seconds.  I have no clue where it went and the funny thing is I have a perfect little kupcake to see a timeline grow.  Easier when they are little to see that.  In August lots of big big changes headed my way and while I'm excited about, I'm also nervous about but that's for another day to chat about. 

  Let's talk about personal goals.  I'm really needing to focus on working out and running to get rid of the fall season.  I have
  • Duathlon Sept 12
  • RAD Run 10k Oct 6
  • Conejo Valley Half Marathon Oct 14
  • Halloween Mud Run Oct 28
  • Santa Barbara Half Marathon Nov 10
  • Turkey Trot (Thanksgiving)
  • Santa Run (in search of one)
 For August goals, I'm focusing on numbers.
  • Miles ran/walk:  100 (big number...eek)
  • Miles on Bike: 50
  • Classes taken: 8
  • 30 day shred dvd: 15
  • Weight loss: 6 lbs
  • Meals any cooked at home: 30
One of the other goals is to push forward with eating clean and unprocessed foods.  I've done a good job to do so but I know I can do more and am excited to clean the cupboards and start fresh!

Will have to do updates on how this whole goes...wish me luck!
