Achieve in August

I’m so excited to share this post with you guys! I was thinking about it all weekend!

(Side Note: I realize today is the 2nd day of August and I should’ve written this yesterday, but I was fulfilling a goal by participating in date night ūüėČ )

I decided that August is going to be all about Achieving goals. 31 days to set new goals, make new dreams, and the possibility¬†of a whole new YOU! That’s fantastic! I have a few goals in addition to my GGH Bucket List that I’d like to share, and I’m also going to share some amazing goals sent in by some GGH followers!!

1) Acquire a bike and start riding  at least 3 days a week (Accomplished today! We went on our first bike ride this evening!)

2) Land the writing gig I interviewed for last week

3) Eat super clean! (cut back on bread products, sugars, and drink more water!)

4) Get into the gym more! Try to commit to the Wednesday night Zumba class!

5) Raise as much money for Autism Awareness as possible! There is a local family that needs our help desperately! I refuse to let this child with an Autism diagnosis go by the way side! Visit: and HELP!

6) Gain at least one client via my Meal Planning launch! (See the Meal Planning tab for details)

Now to share some awesome goals sent in by readers!!!
