So Alan and I were talking about a week ago and we realized that we had to make our hotel reservation for our friend's wedding in September. It blew. our. minds. that September was just around the corner and now here it is! I really do think that time goes faster and faster the more kids you have and once they're in school, it's going warp speed. Seriously. WHERE has this year gone?!
Here's how I did in August:
Fit in my runs whenever I can.I registered for the half marathon in October and have been doing well with training until I went out of town last week. I was supposed to run nine miles yesterday and it was a struggle to run a 5k. I'm also suffering from plantar fasciitis again since I've been running more and more. I ordered a foot sleeve to help and I cannot wait for it to get here this week. I have ten miles coming up and I desperately need the foot support. Meal plan, meal plan, meal plan. This has gone well the weeks I have been home. Yard work.We got all of the yard work completed that needed to be done early in the month except for one shrub in the backyard. Of course it's grown back now and we need to do it again and we'll be out of town for the next several weekends.
- Clean the house. We cleaned for a cookout we had early in the month and since then we've both been out of town so it's a mess. Again.
Here are my goals for September:
- Continue training for the half marathon. It's October 3rd and I know it will be here before I know it. Since I'm going to be out of town the next couple weekends, I'm going to have to run double digit miles during our trips. This is a must, no ifs ands or buts about it.i
- Clean the house. This isn't always easy since we're single parenting during the week and out of town on the weekends, but the clutter and mess is affecting my anxiety and I NEED it to be clean.
- Start planning Cecily's birthday party. Her birthday is at the end of October, but I don't want it to sneak up on me like everything else has seemed to this year. I have ideas of what I want to do, but I need to put them in motion.
Aaand that's it really. It's going to be crazy around here until after Ewan's birthday in January and I just need to get through without losing the rest of my sanity.
