August goals

I'm late to the party again this month (a recurring theme, it feels like), but I always like to get the goals set for myself. It really does help with my motivation. :-)


  • Stick to our budget
  • Save $1,500, in addition to our stock vests. This will be tight this month, as we are back to having a nanny.
  • Put $100/each in the boys college funds

  • Have one date night with M
  • Donate, sell or toss 50 items in the house.
  • Clean the garage!
  • Train nanny. Mostly hired. ;-) 

  • Lose 2 pounds. 
  • Eat 5 servings of fruits & vegetables 
  • Complete 5 stretching workouts (yoga or pilates)
  • Complete 7 strength workouts
  • Complete 1200 minutes of cardio. It's a big month with my adventure relay 
  • Average 1350 calories/day
  • Successfully finish my relay!

  • Maximum of one late night/week
  • Work from home at least one Friday this month
  • Explore other work options at my existing company

  • Read four books
  • Get together with one friend

That's it for me. What about you? What's on your list of goals for August?


  1. Yeah-nanny resolved! Get goals. Biggest goal besides the same targets is to stay on budget for vacation. 75%covered by MIL but still hefty expenses on our plate plus want to treat her to some extras on board.
