August goal checkin

I didn’t do a hell of a lot this month; I worked some crazy hours coordinating a project. Over that time, basically, my life consisted of work, coming home, eating and collapsing. The state of our house was a shocker at times, but I did my best to make sure we had semi-healthy dinners and daily showers. After that, I was a zombie for another week until my body finally caught up on rest.

Save 20 per cent of my income. Done, in no small part thanks to my tax refund.

Try one new (to me) dinner recipe each week. Fail.

Run once a week. Of course, it rained on all the days I had off after the 12 days from hell. I hate the cold, I hate the wet, and get sick at the drop of a hat.  (In fact, I was sick the first day I took off after that stretch. Ugh). But thanks to the way the dates fell this month, I still got in three runs. Who knows, maybe I’ll step it up to twice a week come summer (I just know all you fit freaks out there are laughing at me. Thanks for keeping it to yourself).  I know it sounds like I’ll use any excuse not to run…but I can physically feel it when I miss one.

Donate to charity. Done – at the start of the month. Now to decide on a cause for September…

My baking challenge went decently well, by the way. Photos here if you missed it!
