Monthly Goals

july 2014 goals

I always get excited when July 1 gets here.

To me, its kind of like January 1, minus the countdown.  I guess its because its the second half of the year, and is a good point to evaluate how your year is going, if you haven’t already.

There are somethings that I started at the beginning of the year that are working, somethings that have been edited, and somethings that have been removed all together.  I try not to get discouraged when I don’t do things perfectly, but rather learn from them, remember grace, and try again. Easier said than done sometimes, but I’m getting there.

Here’s how my June goals worked:

  • get out of bed by 6:30 on weekdays – Well, let’s just say I’ve got some work to do.
  • exercise for 45 minutes a day I did it! Woohoo!
  • drink 72 oz water a day After 3 months of trying, I’m finally hydrated!
  • run 40 miles Checky, check, check! I actually did 52!
  • sew a round tablecloth – Didn’t happen. The fear of breaking my sewing machine is still paralyzing me.
  • catch up on monthly reading – Still behind. Hopefully I’ll catch up during our upcoming travel adventures!
  • finish planning out one year anni and begin packing Only a few days until we’re on our way!

And here are my goals for July:

  • celebrate our one year anniversary
  • create a grateful list from our first year of marriage
  • take a picture on our anniversary {with and without a photo from our wedding day}
  • explore a new city

That’s it.  Not my typical to do list of monthly goals, but rather a month of celebration and expressing how gratitude for the gift of marriage to my sweet G.

Do you have goals for July?
