Simple Saurus Returns… with Goals

After a long hiatus, I’ve decided to attempt blogging again. Does anyone else find blogging more difficult that it should be? It doesn’t seem like it should take so long or be a lot of work but somehow I always run out of steam. So I’ve made a goal for myself to blog weekly – just once a week… it can’t be that hard, right?

Anyways, I’ve decided to return to my blog as a way to track some goals. Here’s my July Goals as well as some long term goals that are carrying over from when I first started this blog.


July Goals:

  1. 30 minutes exercise daily
  2. Vitamin, fish oil, and allergy medication daily
  3. Drink water upon waking plus 3 water bottles full (mine holds 18oz) each day
  4. Start #100HappyDays
  5. Start #40Bagsin40Days
  6. Reconnect with a friend each week
  7. Try something new each week
  8. Date with husband each week
  9. Blog once a week
  10. Daily brief walk with dogs after dinner (when weather permits)
