August was such a whirlwind. I was able to teach a lot of yoga and reconnect myself to my personal practice, but I seemed to have a lot of commitments going on. Now September is already here and it seems like I have another busy month! 😊 Before jumping into another crazy month I want to recap some favourites from August.
Food: I have made several healthy snacks lately and they are husband and baby approved in our house. I tried my hand at homemade granola bars and no-bake energy balls. Yum!
Music: I have been into the more soulful, songwriter stuff lately. I am bumping Ria Mae and Birdy a lot lately. I can get my fix more often lately, especially having my headphones in as I get work done, since my husband is NOT a fan of all my eclectic tastes in music. 😀
Movies: I was able to get out for a movie date with my girlfriend and watch Bad Moms. It was hilarious and I loved the time out of the house as well as the comedic relief.
Books: I am reading Wanderlust and Aim True. Both books are a great read and have been my inspiration to reset my personal yoga and meditation practice. These books are pushing me to focus on my goals with more gusto.
Clothes: I bought a flannel shirt from Costco that I am in LOVE with 😉 Fall is at our heels and I am preparing for tall boots, leggings and my cozy flannel.
Activities: We were able to visit the Fringe Festival this year with Lily and my family. It was a great atmosphere and I love that it is right by the Strathcona farmer’s market. Two in one for the day. I was also teaching yoga in the park and prenatal private lessons all month which kept me busy. Lily likes to tag along every so often. I love that she can join me; it is a special feeling to have her accompany me as I do something I love.
Wishlist: I am planning/saving for a family trip in the winter. My husband and I have things we want to complete around the house before we spend funds on a trip. I see this as an opportunity for me to get strict on the budget to fit this into our plans!
Goals and planning are important when checking things off the Wishlist. What are some of your Septmeber goals? Any good strategies for planning and saving?
