August Goals: I'm Really Bad at Bucket Lists



Remember that time I created a Summer Bucket List and I was so excited to do all the fun things this summer? Yeah, about that...

Things I sort-of Accomplished:
Go to the beach: we haven't gone three times, and we actually haven't even stayed at the beach. Both have just been day trips, but it's been fun nonetheless. We're both in a wedding in September and the respective bachelor/bachelorette parties are at the beach so I can actually cross this goal all the way off!

Visit some place new: we went to Canada! Technically, it wasn't a new place for Derek, but it only had to be new for me. I talked about Lake Louise last week, and on Wednesday I'll be sharing some more about our trip.

Go camping: I'm going to count part of our stay in Canada as camping just because the bathroom wasn't located inside the cabin. Other than that, it really wasn't primitive at all.

Get back on track with my fitness goals: Last month was definitely better than June. I don't know what happened in June, but me and the gym just didn't get along. I'm back to going 4-5 times a week, and have even started trying Zumba once a week with a co-worker. It's so much fun! 

Things I haven't checked off and probably won't before the end of summer:
Read the Harry Potter series. I decided to finish Outlander instead. I'm going strong, half way through the seventh book, An Echo in the Bone.

Practice Skiing: every time we've gone boating, it's just been more about cruising and having a good time. Who knows though, I may get a wild hair and give it another go before summer ends.

Make smores. I just don't see myself building a fire anytime soon.

Other Goals for the Month:
Create a monthy budget, and by "budget" I mean that very loosely, because we like to be spontaneous. I guess I should say that I want to create a "savings goal" instead of a budget. We've replaced the money we took from our savings account when we bought my car in December, and we are ready to get back on the real-estate horse and looking at homes again.

Continue updating my prayer journal. I did a really good job of it in the spring, but started slacking off this summer. It's my goal to be intentional with scripture reading, prayer, and worship time. 

Re-finish my bar cart. I got my hands on an (old, rusted, paint peeling off) bar cart from some friends of my in-laws and I'm half way done updating it. It's going to be a great addition to our den, mainly because there isn't a lot of room in our cabinets for our alcohol. And also because this pretty painting needs a home. 

Pack and take my lunch to work every day except Fridays. I'm trying to make healthier choices when  it comes to my meals, and this is so much easier to do when I pack my own lunches. It's always so tempting to just go through a drive through and eat the spicy chicken sandwich when I don't have my meal right in front of me. I'm taking Fridays off because sometimes I meat Derek for lunch, and a girl can't live on salads and chicken breasts, ya know?

What are your goals for this month?

I think goals are just harder to accomplish in the summer!

Christine Everyday said...

Harry Potter!!! No matter when you read them, that's a great choice. :)

Amanda said...

I am the worst at all bucket lists. I don't think I ever finish anything I plan to. Your summer doesn't sound half bad though, and a cabin without a bathroom definitely counts as camping!

Elizabeth Than said...

Sorry Kalyn, I can't help but giggled at "I meat Derek for lunch". XD

Once I found the suitable saving method for myself, it has been slightly easy. Pretty excited for your house hunting! Salad and me aren't the best of friends. I've tried having it for lunch once, felt so deprived for the rest of that day. Yikes. Good luck for this month!

Oh man... packing lunch for work is a real struggle. May the odds be ever in your favor. But good job on the met goals!

Macy said...

Last night, I went water skiing for the first time this summer. I wish I would have been out more often, I have some tricks to accomplish!

Kels @ BlonderSide said...

You and me both. I've had a bucket list for years and have maybe crossed one of two things off. Mostly because I forget about it or the things i end up doing should have been on my list but I didn't think of it haha

Megan said...

OMG you're STILL reading the Outlander series? Impressive! I recently downloaded the fourth audiobook but haven't been able to fully commit haha. I read the first three in a row, but then I decided to take a break. And the break keeps going.... ;)

You have GOT to read Harry Potter! :-) I love it.
