Happy (almost) August! Just checking in to log my progress regarding my New Years Resolutions. In order to keep myself accountable this year, I'm doing monthly reviews, in which I share my successes--or maybe failures--of the past month.
Here's how I did for July:
- Start and/or maintain healthy habits... check! I did the TaeBo videos several times in June; even though TaoBo is INFINTELY more fun than Pilates, I still longed to get outside and RUN! Finally, after receiving the green light from my bodyguard (Love you, Nate!), I've been running nearly every day since. It's just around the block--most of it is a busy main street--but it's better than exercising in front of the TV! The block is .6 miles, and I'm running it three times most mornings.
- Go one one date per month...check! We went out last night; a big thanks goes to Justin & Kelly for babysitting.
- Spend less...check, I think! I threw out a whole wad of receipts, without realizing that they hadn't yet been recorded. But we've not splurged on anything, so my guess is that July was fairly typical.
- Host guests once per month... check! We had Nate's brother Ryan and his family over for dinner, along with Kathy (my friend who taught me to sew).
