a birthday month overhaul.



Happy August, everyone! As we welcome in the final summer month, I am getting ready to celebrate my twenty-seventh birthday [well... not until almost the end of the month, actually]. Many people like to celebrate their birthday all month long, & I thought, why not? In the spirit of celebration, I've created a list of goals to carry out over the next thirty-one days. What are your August goals?

+ work out every day of the month (cardio every single day, at the bare minimum).

+ blog every day of this month. taking a note out of jenni's book, i'm doing something i've decided to call blaugust. i was so happy with how i felt at the end of may, when i had thirty [yes, i missed a day] posts, so i wanted to replicate that feeling this month. 

+ eat healthfully, try recipes, & enjoy eating & drinking. lately, i've had the tendency to rush through meals. i want to savor them.

+ do some crafting. i have some projects up my sleeve that it's time to start on, as well as some residual projects that need to be finished!

+ work on organization, generally.

I think that's enough to focus on this month, don't you? This morning I've had a cup of hot chocolate, written in my journal, watched some ultra-inspiring videos on YouTube, & painted my nails birthday-girl-red. Here's to the eighth month!

Yes, your goals are impressive! I'm moving this month (which is so time consuming!), but I'm hoping to get a lot of half finished work projects tied up and to hopefully lose a couple pounds (which is what I've been saying for the past year, but maybe this will be the month!). Good luck!

I want to try and blog a whole month too! These are great goals!

Happy birthday month to you:) I love the idea of setting goals for the month! I should totally be doing your second goal! I am always so impressed with all these bloggers who get so many posts out in a week!

I LOVE BIRTHDAY MONTHS!!!! Always always always get as much celebrating as your family and friends will allow (I've been limited to birthday week for the time being...)
Such good ideas and goals for the month, good luck with them! And I look forward to reading a post everyday and seeing what you are up to; good luck :)
