Let’s Talk Goals

Ok, where did the summer go? Can we start there? I feel like just yesterday I was lacing up my shoes to run Santa Cruz Marathon and now I am perusing through my closet for long sleeves and pants (eeeeek)  I don’t know how I feel about this considering summer is my favorite season and I am a bit of a winter baby.  However, I will set aside my angst about the shortness of the season and enjoy the last few day(s) or week(s) left of summer bliss.

We are now gearing up for back to school, hibernation, and of course, back to, revisiting goals from a summer filled with __________(insert your descriptor for your summer here)

  1. Thanks for the reminder that I need to get to work on my September goals… it just doesn’t seem possible that it’s already the 12th! Rock your goals this month, girl! Can’t wait to hear what you’re up to here in Minnie!

  2. Well argued, It has aaywls been an obvious argument you put on weight when you eat more than you need excercising will never reduce weight on a body badly nourished.Eating the right food is more difficult nowadays with modern habits as against old -time habits when food was made from fresh ingredients and you knew what was going in the pan and then in your stomach, not so nowadays. Keep up the campaign it is much easier to eat healthier with all that is available but knowing what is best needs to be learnt and all processed food should be put to the sword, apart from corned-beef and baked beans !!!!
