Summer 2014 Goals



Summer is not my favorite season. Heat makes me short-tempered and lazy, two character traits that I hate. I was tempted to skip over summer goals completely, but that's not my style either. So I'm keeping it simple and general. Ta da, mofos:

1. Exercise 3x/week and write it down.

2. Purge t-shirts, nail polish, basket near the front door, and beauty samples. 

3. Make sure I hit 100 ounces of water a day on weekends. I do it every weekday but suck badly on weekends and am rewarded with headaches.

4. Ride a roller coaster. 

5. Go to the top of City Hall.

6. Visit The Barnes.

7. Make three new recipes. 

8. Try three new restaurants.

9. Watch three new to me movies.

10. Read 10 books.

11. Picture Practice every Monday with Kelli at Just Beachy. Do you like to take pics? You can share your interpretation of her prompts via Instagram, FB, Twitter, or in a blog post using the hashtag #PicturePractice. Check the prompts out here.

Welp...summer is here.
Excessive heat is not sweet. 
Nor are stinky feet.

  5. Haiku for the win!! I need a summer to do list.... I think vacation takes the top though!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I am bad about water on weekends as well. Today's haiku is my fave, I think!

  7. I have to fix my water intake as well but daily not just on weekends! I'd love to ride a roller coaster but never have, I hope you post about it if you do it!

  8. Water I'm okay with on weekends. Food, on the other hand, is out of control. Which is why losing weight is one of my summer (and very long term) goals.

    I also want to get through my summer reading list but thus far, the library is not cooperating so I think it's just read 14 books, whichever ones they may be.

  9. Pics at She Crab Soup?
    or are they at Just Beachy?
    Maybe we'll do both?

    ReplyDelete
  10. I have no doubt you'll hit the purge goal! I suck at water intake all the time. How do you remind yourself?

  11. I would love to lose my baby weight 20 lbs! My"BABY" will be 20 in September. #longtimegoal
    I am attempting a garden a la Dalai Momma with unconventional gardening. It is an experiment. So I want to have a successful garden. Eating all this good produce. Being more strict with sugar and try and eat "better" sugar.
    Dedicated exercise regulary- #anotherlongtimesituation. I do love my life and would be content if I went to the other side tomorrow. I would rather call goals- things that I want to do that make me happy and healthy. Reading is a bonus along with crosswords. Merle Reagle are my favorite. I seem to putter around happily in my home and am forever grateful, baking, some cleaning- not like Steph LOL, tbt-ing. Just having a lovely, grateful life. Oh, I am rambling. Back out to my bountiful garden. Carpe diem!!! Love your Momma

  12. Love these goals! I'm just the opposite it's so easy for me to drink all my water on the weekends, but so hard for me to drink my water on the weekdays!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I kicked goals to the curb for the summer, my only goal is to get in as much beach time as possible. If I drank 100 oz of water a day I'd be in the bathroom every 5 minutes.

  14. I love all of these except ride a roller coaster. i just cant!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Why is drinking water on weekends so hard?! I'm permanently attached to my Camelbak when I'm out but for some reason when I'm at home I totally neglect it. I've never ridden a roller coaster before!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm indifferent about summer. I'm all about September and October. I was doing 150 oz of water a day for awhile there. I'm trying to get at least 100 a day and it makes me feel so much better!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I suck big time on consuming enough water on the weekends too! I think these goals are perfect for summer!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I was just talking about going on a roller coaster this summer with my girlfriends, it is totally on my summer list too!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I nodded my head to all of these except riding a rollarcoaster- they scare me to death!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm not just bad at water on weekends I'm bad at water when I don't have to work...which means all summer long, when I should be drinking more. Good luck with the goals!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Good solid goals. I suck at the water on the weekends too.

    ReplyDelete
  22. these are great goals. i do the same thing with water - while i'm working, it's easy to sip water all day and then i slack on the weekends!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I try to force myself to at least have two glasses in the morning before we start doing stuff on the weekends. It's hard...I also forget some days at work too! I'm gearing up for some major purging of stuff at our house...half of our guest room/office is just storage junk.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hooray for goals! And lists! Mine are mostly about being more active and actually getting out of the house (beach trips, camping, and the like). The picture challenge sounds fun - I'm going to check it out now.

    ReplyDelete
  25. No roller coasters for me. Trying to stick to a regular summer workout schedule is number one for me. Since i just paid for the next five weeks should be easy... I won't waste $99... aww hell naw! I also would like to work on cleaning out my house so I can really seriously start figuring out my next step towards downsizing. That's it for me, cleaning up my act basically!

    ReplyDelete
  26. How fun! Where do you plan on riding the roller coaster?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love your goal list! I really need to make my own but until then I'll live vicariously through hours ;) except! I too need to jump on that water bandwagon I don't know what's up with weekends! xxo

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am not so good at drinking water when I'm not at work either. Makes summer difficult, but it's one of my summer goals too! Will you please review your recipes and restaurants?!

    ReplyDelete
  29. GIVE ME ALL YOUR NAIL POLISH AND SAMPLES!
    Any idea what books you're going to read yet??

    ReplyDelete
  30. I am the exact same with water - I need to step my game up. Keep me updated on the books!

    ReplyDelete
  31. New restaurant - I want to join you for one of those. I want to find a weekend in August (or maybe sooner) so i'm going to email you and Marla when I get back from my midwest adventures :) Also, 100 oz of water is insanely impressive.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I like the 3 you have going on! And I am with you on the water. It must be the different schedule on the weekends, but the headaches are killer. Good luck with these goals!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Haha, love the Haiku! Yes, the summer makes me feel lazy too. I think those are good goals. Purging is in my near future too.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Walked out this morning to a blanket of mugginess that makes my mood the same as when it is below zero. Extreme weather not my cup of tea.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love this! Such a great idea. I want to make new recipes and exercise more this summer!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love this list! My summer goal is to make it out alive. Lol. I've been so stressed out!

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is a great list...when you ride the coaster (if you're not a coaster rider) scream your head off...it will release the adrenalin and make you less nauseous....if you're prone to motion sickness, that is. :-) Have so much fun reaching every one of these.

  38. The top of City Hall is on my list of things to do when I visit. Let us know how it is!
