Considering last month's poor grades, an already-hectic schedule, and the fact that we're going out of town for the last week of August, I'm gonna take Ryan Adams' advice and go easy on myself. Hopefully that will help as I try to catch up in blogging and other areas.
Thankfully, our vacation money is already set aside, so my lack of budgeting last month won't put us in any jeopardy there. But this does need to be a priority because like I mentioned last month, our quarterly taxes went up - I haven't yet accounted for that change in our budget, so we're saving a lot less each month than we'd like.
Very clean. I didn't do such a great job of this last month, and boy is my body letting me know that. I feel like I'm on some sort of pendulum, going between two extremes. I wish I were more disciplined!
This includes healthy food choices and sufficient preparation so I'm not rushing at the last minute. Road trips can be stressful for me. Since I have Crohn's disease, if I don't plan ahead in my food choices, I'll get sick on carb-heavy, sugar-heavy, heavily-processed fast/travel food. I'm also triggered by stress and lack of sleep, so I have to be extra intentional about all of these things. I know it can be done :) It just takes a lot of planning.
Get Back Into a Blogging Rhythm
I'm not going to give myself a number of posts per week like I have in the past, because that tends to overwhelm me (I've found that I try to reach that number with BIG, time-consuming posts). I'd like to start doing more off-the-cuff blogging between my bigger posts, so we'll give it a try and see how it fits.
Does anyone else struggle with eating clean/healthy traveling? I'd appreciate any and all tips!
Yesterday, we shared our July Report Cards, so it just makes sense that we should share our goals for August, too. That means another link party today! It's easy - just write up a quick post about the things you'd like to accomplish in August. It doesn't have to be anything crazy - this is just a motivational tool to keep us accountable in our goals. (I forgot to mention this yesterday, but I would appreciate it if you would include a text-link back to She Learns As She Goes in your submitted blog post.) Once you're finished, come back here and add yours to the list by clicking on the blue "Add your link" button at the end of this post. Please be sure to link to your post (not your blog's home page). This link-party will be open for a week (closes August 8th at 11:59 PM CST).
Finally, make sure you visit the other links and leave encouraging comments! :)
