August Goals

 I'm a little late getting these up, but better late than never! These should look very similar to July - I'm keeping on with the positive momentum. 


  • Pay off our mortgage!
  • Resolve outstanding vacation house item (it's a long story. One day I'll post all of the drama)
  • Stick to the budget
  • Make $300 in side hustle
  • Have a date with M
  • Help the boys get back into school & soccer, particularly with Nick starting high school
  • Help the boys with potential new job opportunities
  • Plan our anniversary (October)
  • Lose 3 lbs
  • Start half marathon training
  • Complete 12 strength workouts
  • Meditate 10 times
  • Continue doctor's stuff for lupus


  • Go through all clothes (minus M's) & get rid of anything that no longer fits, we don't wear, etc
  • Give away or donate all items put aside for Buy Nothing group
  • Stay on top of garden. Try a few new recipes
  • Write, for at least 30 minutes

What about you? Have you set any goals for August? 


  1. I always love to see your goals at the beginning of the month and then see how well you did at the end.

  2. I am in awe that you will be abel to pay off your mortgage this month. Congratualtions to you! I have not made real goals in August either-just plugging away at the overall for the year, but little by little life is getting sorted.

  3. The biggest one is paying off that mortgage!

  4. Congratulations on paying off your mortgage, that is fantastic! Wow, what a major achievement, not to mention in tje Bay area/Silicon Valley.

    I hope whatever the issue is with the vacation house is easily remedied. 😕

  5. Great goals for the month. Mine are mostly related to crafting and the garden.

    God bless.
