Summer Goals - how did I do?

Summer 2015 ends calendar-wise in a few days. Here's how I did with my seasonal goals:

1. Make homemade cinnamon ice cream. Made on 7/11 and sweet Jesus it was delicious. 



4. Read an Agatha Christie Hercule Poirot book. I read The Mysterious Affair at Styles on vacation at the end of June. 

5. Purge and organize: utility closet. Done - second weekend in August. 



8. Conquer fears: cook on the grill and swim in the lake. I've been grilling like a champ, mofos! I made myself do it once a week to truly conquer the fear. I was in the lake on two different weekends on floats but not swimming. I'm counting it. 

9. Increase weights and maintain exercise schedule. Fail. I actually had a falter with weights in general and dipped down to twice a week for the fuck it phase. I battled back into my routine but am still not as fluid with it as I was going into the summer. I'm working on it though.

10. Watch a sunrise and sunset in a beach town in the same day. Sunday 6/28 in Emerald Isle.

Did you make summer goals? How did you do?

Happy happy birthday today to my longest time friend Jen. We've been friends for going on 36 years. And tomorrow to my youngest brother Sean, who turns 21. Be safe and enjoy your first truly legal beer, brother. Love you both! 

I am travelling, please forgive delayed replies to comments. I'll catch you on the flip side.

  3. You did great! I didn't really make any so I succeeded in winging it all summer long. Perhaps Fall is a good time to start back on the goal train for me!

  4. Kickass! You did great. I was looking at some old goal posts and missing doing them. What are the chances the themed goal linkup will return?

    Enjoy your travels!!!

  8. Pretty sure you nailed it this summer. I don't even want to review what my goals are because I know I didn't come close. Also, did you post the cinnamon ice cream recipe? Because I feel like that since it's cinnamon I can totally transition that into a fall treat.

  9. Wow! You did great! (and lake swimming is actually quite pleasant. Wear footwear if the bottom creeps you out.)

  10. Nice work!!! You nailed so many! I'm really dying to make cinnamon ice cream by the way. Enjoy your weekend of your trip, according to Instagram- you're surrounded by beauty!

  11. Wow, good for you! I'm feeling so...unaccomplished. I love the idea of making a list like this, though - an attainable one - not like, "Go to the gym every day" which is laughable. But there are so many things I always say I want to do & I'd probably be more inclined to do them if I made a list to stick to. Congrats! Sounds like an eventful summer.

  14. I'm loving your pictures of your trip so far. Go Pro for the win! I sucked at my summer goals, but I still had a great summer so I'm calling the whole thing "a fuck it phase." Maybe i'll be more realistic for my fall goals. Have fun!!!

  15. Congrats on achieving all your goals except 1 and that one is completely understandable with all your traveling which seems to throw off your schedule, at least it does to me. Have fun on your trip!

  22. You did a good job! Maybe I should think of some fall goals.

  23. Wow, you kicked some major ass with these goals! I'm especially impressed that you managed to conquer a couple of your fears. It can be so hard to push yourself out of your comfort zone, so that's seriously awesome.

    I need to try making homemade ice cream. I've seen a ton of recipes on Pinterest, and they all look pretty simple. I have no idea what's stopping me from at least attempting it.
