Goals - August report

August is done! Let's review the goals:
  1. Lose three pounds each month.
    Fail - but hey, I DIDN'T GAIN any weight this month for the first time in aaaaages.  Shockingly, I gained a bunch of weight after a long weekend with a LOT of working out, but so happy to see a little green on this chart finally.
  2. Work out at least 20 days a month.
    Smashed: 27 days, including several multiple workout days and three days several hours of workouts!
  3. Hit my 10,000 steps a day average over the month.
    Smashed!  Average 13.4k steps a day - including five days over 20k!  Insanity :)  I need to take an honest to goodness rest day more often though - my body is definitely showing its age.

  4. Cook one new (and healthy!) recipe a month.
    Met: Just one, but at least that's something.
  5. Make gratitude a priority.
    Met: continuing my nightly journaling on this.
I met my informal August goal of not gaining any weight, so that's awesome.  I need to do that again, but hopefully lose a pound or two.  I'm not sure what is causing this struggle, but with kiddo now in kindergarten, I have more time to focus on my nutrition and exercise.  Hopefully progress will be made!
