Goal Check In: August 2018

How is it September already?! I can't believe how quick this year is going by. It feels like I blinked and summer just disappeared before my eyes. I can't complain though, because this summer contained lots of fun trips and I am ready for a little less travel and a little more routine this fall. Below are my goal updates for August! 


  • Drink eight glasses of water a day 
  • Journal everyday
    • Keeping up with both of these daily goals! 


  • Workout four days a week
    • Aside from not working out while I was on vacation I've kept up with four+ days a week of working out! 
    • I also started doing P.volve workouts this month and am going to keep doing it for another month or two to see how I like it. 
  • Cook a new meal once a week
    • We still cook all our week day meals at home, but I haven't tried any new recipes. 
  • Work from a coffee shop one day a week
    • Finally made it out! I worked from my favorite coffee shop in Houston, Boomtown Coffee. 
  • No TV or Social Media one day a week
    • Well I completely disconnected for a day while on my cruise! Granted I didn't have service but I am voting it still counts! 


  • Read two books a month
  • Try a new restaurant
    • Houston
      • Present Company: Met up with Grecia for happy hour and this place is an Instagram dream! There are fun wallpapers, neon signs, and pretty decor around every corner. I enjoyed my drinks, but thought that the food was fine for bar food. 
      • Gelazzi: Yum! I had the blueberry gelato and it was delicious!  
      • Oishii: I'd heard a lot of people rave about this place and maybe I just didn't order the right thing because my food was just ok.  
      • La Fisheria: Tried this place for Restaurant Weeks and was let down. My margarita was terrible and the food was mediocre at best. 
      • Maison Pucha: Wow, this place was amazing! We went for Grecia's birthday dinner and everything I tasted was delicious! This was another restaurant where we did the Restaurant Weeks menu and we were delighted.  
    • San Diego 
      • Fig Tree Cafe
      • Por Vida 
      • Parakeet Cafe:

    • Los Angeles 
      • The Henry
  • Plan a girls night
    • Spent a week in San Diego with my sister and cousin so I am counting that as my girls night for the month. 
  • Send birthday cards
    • Got the cards out this month! 


  • Run a 10k - Completed on February 24, 2018 
    • Finished my first timed 10k in 59:15.6 mins! 
  • Run a half marathon
    • Finally ran my first half marathon on July 15! I completed 13.2 miles in 2 hours and 20 minutes!
