It’s hard to believe it’s already September, and 2016 is winding down. Apparently, I didn’t even set August goals, so I guess I’m winding down too! The good news is that I have set goals for September to get me back on track, so let’s get to it:
- Re-interview for the Navy Reserves and NAIL IT. This is a goal I have spent the last 7 months working on. Ever since I found out I didn’t get selected, I have been taking online courses, securing letters of recommendation (new ones), and replaying over and over interview questions and better answers. I am as prepared as I can be, and I’m looking forward to showing all that I have done to this year’s board.
- Have a better health screening. My weight was excellent during my screening last year, but my good cholesterol was too low. My weight will be higher this year than last year (not by much), but I’m hoping my cholesterol is better.
- My daughter released from cardiology care. She has spent the past 6 months on complete cardiac rest. We are very hopeful that when she sees her pediatric cardiologist on the 19th, he will say her heart is healed and release her from his care.
- Must. Start. Running. Distance. Ok seriously, I’ve put this off for FAR too long. I have a freakin’ marathon in 12 weeks. 12 WEEKS!!! I haven’t run further than 3 miles in months. This is a massive problem. I’m going to be hurting way more than last year if I don’t get off my butt and get moving. Even doing cross training at home has stopped, and I just need to stop making excuses. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had some good excuses (dental surgery anyone?), but that won’t help me cross the finish line of a 26.2 mile race either. *sigh*
That should be more than enough to accomplish this month. Bring it on!
