Hi friends! Hopefully, everyone had a fabulous weekend. Mine was super busy, but I accomplished a lot so I’m happy.
Since we’re into a new month, I’ve got a new set of goals I’d like to work on.
First up, a recap of how I did for my goals in June.
1. Plank a day.
Honestly, this one was a fail. I did pretty good for the first 2 weeks, but then it fell by the wayside. But, I did keep it up whenever I did strength training – so 2-3x a week. Maybe I’ll focus on keeping it as a practice then, rather than trying to do it every day.
Still didn’t get any new plank pics so you get this one from a few years ago again.
2. Get a massage.
Yaaaa another fail. With trying to get myself situated at my second job I never got around to booking one. Sooner or later though.
3. Be more active on the blog’s Facebook page.
This one is still a work in progress. But, I did make the effort to link to more outside articles that I found interesting/relevant, which is a start. Now I want to work more on asking questions/generating discussion. Like the page here!
4. Balance the two job thing.
This one is also a work in progress. There were weeks where I definitely worked more than was good for my mental health or pulled some insane hours, but I think I did ok. I’m feeling more settled into job number 2, which helps.
So now, as for what I want to accomplish this month:
1. Go to Stampede.
Of course. I can’t live in Calgary and NOT go to Stampede! I’m not a country music fan in the slightest, but even I can get behind a big festival like that. I can’t promise that I won’t get a cheap wicker girly ‘cowgirl’ hat for the occasion.
2. Stop the clothes shopping.
I’ve been doing a lot of unnecessary clothes shopping and my closet is getting a little too full. So, I want to cut back on that and work with what I already own when it comes to putting outfits together.
Although I do need a new pair of sandals because I broke the ones in the picture there. Oops.
3. Make my way up to Kananaskis/Canmore for a day trip.
I haven’t been back since I moved on March 1st and I could seriously use some mountain time. The Rockies have a crazy calming effect, and being around them and in nature just makes me feel centered and peaceful.
4. Stick to the training plan (as much as possible).
I’m into my Canmore half marathon training, and so far it’s going well. Naturally, I want to stick to the plan as much as possible! But I’ve learned that flexibility is definitely necessary, because life does happen and sometimes you can’t always get a planned workout in.
So far, so good.
That’s is for me today – have a good one!

<— Do you get massages often?
