After a jam-packed summer, I am looking forward to settling back into a serious routine. First and foremost, I need to kick my butt into gear in the gym again. I definitely got a little lazy towards the end of the summer and I can, quite literally, feel it.
September is also the month that kicks off my busy season for work, which I’m already itching for. I always have to remind myself that summers are slow (every.single.year) and to relish it before the crazy fall/winter.
Some fun things I have to look forward to this month:
Even though Labor Day is the unofficial last day of summer, I have a feeling we’ll be still enjoying the beach for weekends to come. We’re going down the shore this weekend and then we’ll be back in a couple of weeks for a wedding. I’m going to an afternoon tea with Katherine McGee (author of American Royals!) that my friend Grace is co-hosting and then I’m going to the premiere of the Downton Abbey movie with Meghan. I don’t have official plans for apple picking, but Wightman’s Farm is in the next town over and offers PYO apples– and I’d love to make a cobbler with my bounty!
PERSONAL GOAL: Workout 4x a week! I’m going to be starting a new round of BBG, which will keep me busy three times a week and I want to push myself to try some new classes at the YMCA in between those workouts. I joined the same week we moved, but with my summer travel schedule, I haven’t been able to commit to finding classes that suit my preferences.
THIS MONTH: September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. I make automatic monthly donations to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, but will be making a larger donation for September.
