It's back! I know you spent most of July wondering, "What happened to Fess Up Friday?" But just in case this wasn't on the top of your list, or it isn't even sounding familiar - back in January I promised to post about meeting goals and celebrating indulgences on the second Friday of the month. My primary goal has been to exercise regularly, but in June I confessed that I was falling off the wagon. I didn't even bother writing about it in July because I was too busy indulging in summer.
Our summer has been ridiculous, filled with once in a lifetime opportunities and memories. The beach, Paris, and an abundance of quality time both as a couple and as a family - indulgences, all.
I am so grateful.
But like all good things, these too have come to an end. I've learned a lot about appreciating and finding the quality time - enough for a post later, I'm sure - but what I mean is, these summer indulgences have been special because they cannot last. Summer is ending, and it is time to get ready for the next season. It is time to get back to a regular routine. It is time to take down all the coloring pages that Mom let you hang on your walls.
While my kids are cleaning, it is time for me to remember my goal - and do something about it. So, last Friday, I finally - after a six year hiatus - joined a gym.
That's been my view three times this week. Goal!
What about your summer? Has it been goal-oriented, full of indulgences, or somewhere in the happy middle? How are you making the transition out of summer and still keeping an eye on your goals?
