How can it be the last day of August already? I still think it’s June in my mind.
(Side note: Calvin and Hobbes was the best part of my childhood. They practically raised me.)
I’m wrapping up my Whole30 this Friday (woot!) and now that the end of this challenge is in sights, I’m looking forward to the next one. Right now it feels good to be challenged, so I’m rolling with it. So for September, I’m going to get back to the gym and running again. What will be nice is having a whole week in Alaska that I can use to “reset” some habits. Do you use vacations or travel to try and adopt a new habit or mindset? I find that getting out of Dodge helps me to put things in perspective, and when I get back home I’m usually pretty recharged to tacking life again head-on. And it’ll totally be do-able to work out in Alaska given that we have no real plans or schedule yet. All I know is we’re flying into Anchorage, and if we don’t get eaten by wolves or bears or something we’ll fly home the following week. Real vacations don’t do plans.
I also want to knock out some goals for the month:
- Work out six days a week (one rest day in there)
- Do one pull-up (assisted somehow)
- Do a two minute plank
- Squat, deadlift, and bench 100# (this one might be tough for a month, but we’ll see)
Okay, now I feel really pumped and want to run like 10 miles now. But instead I’ll go to work and sit at a desk all day. That’s fun, too.
Go make it a great day!
