Happy September! August was a busy month with lots of moving parts, and with Fall and the end of the year fast approaching, things don’t look to settle down anytime soon. Last month’s goals were fairly ambitious, so September is about slowing down, simplifying, and focusing on what is most important. Namely, rest, family, and some big work tasks!
August in Review:
1. Clear out clutter.
This started out in one drawer in my kitchen, and slowly took over cabinet by cabinet, room by room. If we hadn’t used it since we moved in 2 years ago, out it went. So much open space everywhere now! Hopefully it stays that way for a while.
2. Start marathon training plan.
I’ve made progress since our California adventure with completing my couch to 10k plan, but I decided to completely forego a marathon this year. My heart just isn’t in it. And the thought of figuring out how to pump or nurse mid-race solidifies the decision to wait until breastfeeding season is over to tackle this goal again. I have signed up for an 8k in October and am now targeting a December 13.1 goal. Training plan is ready to go!
3. Batch cook meals.
This technically didn’t happen until this past weekend, but I am SO SO glad this got completed! I tacked 12 recipes over 2 days. I spent $140 and made over 50 individual servings for meals for the coming months. The last thing I like to do on busy nights now is cook, especially with trying to get a fussy, teething baby to sleep!
- Read 4 books.

What are your big goals for this change of season? How are you slowing down and simplifying as we move toward the end-of-the year, holiday madness?
