August Goal Confessions

Well, August has come and gone and I'm still just slacking on my goals.  I'm not even going to make excuses for myself.  Here's the damage:   
  • Do a project, mostly sewing - nope 
  • Work out 3x a week - I probably worked out 3 times total.  Fail. 
  • Tackle a project around the house -Operation Closet Clean-out is in progress and I hope to get a lot done this weekend. 
  • Cook a "real" meal at least 3 days each week - not even close
  • Stick to a clothing budget -  success!
  • Read 50 books in 2013 - I'm falling behind, partly because I abandoned a book that I had started.  I've read 30 books this year, but I should be at 32, to be on track for 50.  I'm not too worried, because I tend to read more in the fall and winter.  I'm sure I can catch back up.  
 I don't even know what to say about this.  I've got a million excuses and none of them are worth whining about here, so I'll just say I hope I can get my act together in September!  

How are you doing on your goals?  Any advice on how I can do better?

Outfit note:  I must give credit to Kate for the idea of putting a navy tee with coral/pink floral shorts.  The cardigan was necessary, because my office gets cold sometimes.  

Top: Gap
Cardigan: Old Navy
Shorts: Loft
Necklace: Dillard's
Sandals: Love Culture


  1. I like the navy with floral, such a pretty juxtaposition! And goals are made so that you know where to focus your attention, but when life gets in the way I think we can all understand that. I keep meaning to start working out more, but I just don't. My list of excuses is a mile long but even I know they're lame. Actually meeting goals is great, but I think as long as you are at least working towards them, that's something to be proud of! Hopefully next month it'll be easier for you. :)

  2. Haha, I am a genius for pairing floral with navy, aren't I? Just kidding. i like your outfit, and I actually think it looks even better with the white cardigan. Hope your goals for August go better!

  3. AH! You and Kate are geniuses for wearing navy with these shorts! I'm always so freaking literal when I get dressed...since there is no blue in the print, I never even think to grab something blue to wear with them...I love the result, and I agree with Kate, the white cardigan looks great with it! I'm sorry to hear your August was not as productive as you would have liked...I can certainly relate. Let's make September better!! :)

    PS. I've been catching up on blogs in alphabetical order and I just got to the I get ready for like a million comments...sorry in advance ;)

  4. I love navy with pretty much everything! It's such a fabulous, but sadly overlooked color. I really like it with your shorts!
