Now as far as I'm concerned, August is the last month of summer. Back when we were kids, August meant the last of summer vacations, the last night of staying up late, picking out school clothes and supplies and starting school at the end of the month.
Now that we are grown ups and "summer vacation" is a thing of our childhood past, I think of August as that final month to get in just a little more sun, enjoy the beach a few more times and say goodbye to summer.
Personally? I'm more of a fall person anyway and I'm looking forward to sweaters, boots and rain.
However, I've heard in San Francisco, September and October are our "summer months".
Guess I'll have to wait just a little longer.
So for the last month of summer, I want to accomplish a few certain things this month.
Here are my goals for August.
++ Lose 10 pounds- I'm starting my 12 week program with my trainer and the first 4 weeks are going to be the toughest, hands down. Her meal plan is strict and her workouts are tough. I'm excited but I'm also a little scared. I can't decide if I'm scared of the workouts or scared to give up wine for 4 weeks.
++ Visit Alcatraz- We keep saying that we are going to go, and here we are, 8 months after moving to SF and we still haven't been. I'm thinking night tour.
++ Save more money- In August, I hope to save a little more this month. I have been slacking in this department the last few months.
++ Read more books- I have also been slacking in this department (thanks to Pinterest). I bought a few health and wellness books on my Kindle and I plan to get through all 3 of them this month.
++ Go to yoga more often- I have only been going maybe once a week, and I'd really like to make it more of a permanent thing. I'm shooting for 1-2 times a week.
++ Go to a concert- We haven't been to a concert all summer. I love concerts.
What are your plans for August?
