August Goals

I work better with goals, even if I don't achieve them.  At least I work in that direction.  I want my goals this month to be reasonable, yet I want them to push me just a little.

1 - make 4 Grinch blocks

2 - Start a new project

3 - go to the gym 8x

4 - lose 8 pounds

5 - try a new recipe

6 - read a book

7 - unplug once a week (no games/blogging/facebook)

8 - take a Saturday walk somewhere new/different

9 - do something kind for someone "pay it forward"

10 - make improv blocks and mail them out

That's all I am coming up with now.

Here's my July recap:

1 - make one Grinch block -- didn't happen

2 - start a new project - started and finished (though I finished it in August).

3 - take a hike - I didn't do this in July but did talk a long walk this morning.  I guess that doesn't really count ...

4 - lose 2 pounds - I lost one pound so that's half way there.
