Why hello there! It’s been a while – over 1 full week – but let’s just continue on from the vegan avocado basil pesto recipe that y’all seemed excited about.
I know this is old news, but August already!? I don’t know how it can be. I start classes again in less than 3 weeks; it’s time to soak up the last of the sunny summer relaxation. I’m all about balance, so as much as I plan to continue the late, summer nights socializing with new friends, I also have a few plans to keep the productivity wheels turning.
The Fitnessista’s 10 Ways to Make August Awesome post gave me instant inspiration Monday morning, as I did my daily blog reading while eating a peachy bowl of oats. Miss Gina is always good for a dose of motivation.
I’m a fan of goals, so I came up with a few for the final month of summer:
FIND MY INNER YOGI AGAIN
My yoga practice has decreased significantly this summer after a revitalizing spring semester of sun salutations and savasana. I haven’t found myself wanting to go to yoga much (perhaps because I’m exhausted from lifting heavy sandbags and swinging 26lb. kettlebells), but I am definitely missing the benefits (read: Ode to Yoga) of practicing regularly.
It’s been a blast adding the pool into my fitness routine; especially with the summer heat, I crave water workouts. I’m also not complaining about the little golden glow I’m getting on my shoulders from the outdoor activity.
register for 1 fall race (half #6!?)
Unfortunately, I don’t have any plans that compete with the epic August 2010 adventure that was the Healthy Living Summit last year, though I am dreaming BIG for Summer 2012 :)
