It is back to school time for a good many people.  This is the first September in two years that it's not for me too.  Strange...

But, I still feel like it's a time for new beginnings.  Why, I'm not sure.  For some reason when I woke up this morning I felt like it being September 1st was an omen...a good omen.  One in which things might be turning around for me.  There's really no reason to think this, it's just a feeling, but it's a nice one to have.

The last few days were rough on the motivation.  I don't know why.  Just got in a funk.  I slacked on the exercise and good food choices.  Guess those two weeks of maintaining hit me harder than I thought.  I kept a calendar of the days I exercised

Yea, it turned out pretty sad.  I'm not thrilled with my lack of dedication last month.  I don't know what happened.  I was all revved up when I got back from Vegas.  But as you can see, the last few days of the month kinda sucked.

But, I have a new calendar for a new month and I have new goals.  Here's this months calendar:

And what's this month's exercise goal?

I'm hoping the calendar will help make things move.  I also have a goal of 8 pounds by Oct. 9th. (which is my birthday).  I have officially 39 days to get there.  Doable?  Hope so.  Especially if I hit my goal of 20 days of exercise in Sept.  I have one 5k scheduled this month - Sunday, September 19th in Baltimore.  There's one day down...19 to go!


  1. You are so much more dedicated than I. This morning my husband and I woke up randomly around 5:20-ish. He nagged me to go exercise. I was tired and refused. Sometimes you just gotta sleep.

  2. I hear ya! I am so not a morning exerciser. I do much better doing it in the afternoon or before dinner. Though I do go for my Sat. runs in the morning, that way I have the rest of the day. But yea, getting up early to exercise? Nope. Not happening. LOL!
