This is what August looked like according to my SparkPeople Calendar and my magical spreadsheet:
I think, physically, August was a resounding success. I was very active, and it capped off an awesome summer. In the time between the end of my teaching contract for the last school year and the start of my contract for this year, I was physically inactive for a total of 4 days. WOW. There's a statement I never thought I would make!
Because I feel pretty solid about my level of physical activity (and am sure I will maintain it), my September goals are going to be about balancing other parts of my life:
- GET MORE SLEEP. I'm notoriously nocturnal, which often ends up with me falling asleep on the couch late in the night and having a hard time waking up in the morning. My goal is to go to bed by 11:00pm 4 days a week (when I have school the next day, that is.) This is going to be a serious challenge for me!
- Eat breakfast and lunch 4 of 5 days per week. It might seem silly, but when I'm stressed out I forget to eat--which leads to an energy crash, irritability, and all kinds of no-good nonsense.
- Make time in the schedule for quality time with Duff Man. We've already talked about "reserving" Mondays & Wednesdays for each other, since we both have outside commitments on the other days.
- Continue making progress towards my goal of 10 workouts a month, every month. This one should be a "gimme."
How was your August? Do you have any September goals?
