August goals

Getting ready, it's back to school month! I'm confident it will be an adventure, as we adjust to 8th grade & 9th grade online learning. Here are my goals for the month.

1) Financial
  • Stick to the budget
  • Pay down our mortgage to the next milestone
  • No clothing/shoes purchases for me
  • Make $500 in side hustle
  • Work through freezer/pantry clean out (10 random items out)
  • Call to set up will/guardianship appointment
2) Family
  • Find time to take the boys to one socially distanced activity per day (walking, tennis, etc)
  • Off the computer by 7:30 each evening (not counting reading)
  • Have a weekly half hour alone with M
  • Schedule a call with M's family
  • Two hours of practicing Spanish or Farsi
  • Finish kitchen remodel
  • Compliment M every day
  • Build a plan for the new school year

3) Fitness/health

  • Lose 2 lbs
  • Work out every day, minus travel day home. Do 2 daily doubles to offset.
  • Track calories & aim for 1440 calories/day
  • Complete 1400 minutes of cardio, 10 strength & 5 stretching workouts
  • Meditate 20 times
  • Run 15 times

4) Personal/creative
  • Do something social at least 2x/month (virtually is okay)
  • Volunteer
  • Journal 25 times
  • Improve myself
    • Judge less
    • Listen more often (talking less)
    • Reduce/eliminate swearing
    • One kind deed/day
  • Read one non fiction book
  • Complete one project/day (taking advantage of WFH)

What about you? What are you hoping to accomplish in August? Please share, so we can cheer you on.

  1. I did so poorly in July, most carried into August. It’s my husbands birthday month and his mom turns 80, plus moving college kid back. I’ll be happy to be smiling on the 31st.
