August and September Goals

So August's goal was to read religious texts daily, and I've improved, but I haven't been perfect.  The plan was to wake up when I feed Axel at 6:30 and then read scriptures after I put him back in bed (He only wakes up the one time "in the night".  It's morning to us, but it's still his night).  Shots + vacation + cold = Axel's schedule really messed up.  It's getting better, but for a while he was waking up to eat at 5am and I just couldn't start my day at 5!  I tried going back to sleep and then waking up at 6:30 but I swear I've been drugged.

Excuses, excuses.  But it's hard to do something daily when you can't get into a good rhythm.  Still working on this one.

September really snuck up on me in some ways (blogging ways) but it others I've been looking forward to it!  (Last September was the best month of my life, mostly because of the gorgeous weather!)

September is NO SUGAR!!!!  I really really need it this time.  Back in May I decided I was going to lose the baby weight.  Soon I realized that when I lost weight, I lost my milk supply.  And since I wasn't trying to lose weight, I swear I started eating like I was trying to gain.  And I did.  Most of my problem is sweets.  Actually that's pretty much my only problem.  I don't like junk food (chips, or. . . see I can't even think of non-sweet treats!) but I love candy and desserts.  The rest of my meals are like oatmeal, beans, rice, quinoa, salads, whole wheat pasta, veggies, the occasional chicken or turkey. 

Do you want to join in with me on this one??? (Here are the rules.  Feel free to make up your own though!) It's a fun time of year to drop the sugar because soon we'll have Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas thrown at us and getting it out of your system now can help make those holidays a little easier!!

I think I'm going to do a giveaway on Monday, so make sure you check it out!


  1. I really like this idea of focusing on one thing during the month. I don't know if I could do no sugar for a whole month!! Ahhhh!!!

    1. It's super hard for a few days and then you just stop craving it. Promise! But then Halloween comes a long and ruins everything :)

  2. I should do no sugar all month, but I'm running a marathon in 2 weeks so I know that won't happen. I'm going back to no sugar weekdays. It's time for me to get a grip.

    1. I totally fell off the wagon for sure. I need to get on the ball.
