Alright August, Let's Do This

Thank you all for your advice on Tuesday's post! I have been using my spare time this week to really try and get myself organized and find a system that works! I started by getting a new laptop! 
We only have a desktop computer at home and since a lot of the work I do is online it has been difficult. Being able to have all of my stuff on my own computer and to be able to work anywhere is one HUGE step in the right direction in terms of getting myself back on track. 

I've decided that August is going to be my month to really rock it! I want to get stuff done, be productive, dominate life and have some fun! I'm setting some goals for August and hope that sharing them will keep me accountable. So here's what's going down in August...

 
  • Take advantage of my super cute blog planner from Breezy Organization to plan/brainstorm posts
  • Post EVERY week day in August {woah!}
  • Clean out mama and mou inbox {currently 506 emails - yikes!}
  • Catch up on blog reading! 

 
  • Attend/plan an Essential Oils event
  • Meal Plan & Grocery Shop EVERY week
  • Run a 5k
  • Train for the 5k {3 runs a week?}
  • Find time for at least 4 yoga classes
  • Do a 2-day Zula Juice Cleanse 

 
  • Update Budget & Create a financial plan
  • Organize photos!!!
  • Create a cleaning schedule {and stick to it!}
  • Create a work schedule {and stick to it!}
  • Set up new laptop for optimum organization {whatever that means}

  • Celebrate Scott & Kelly's Shower in Okaboji
  • Celebrate Sarah's Bridal Shower
  • Celebrate Aaron's 30th Birthday
  • Celebrate Jason's Birthday
  • Start a Book Club!
  • State Fair
  • Tim McGraw Concert
  • Kick off Gopher Football! 
  • Start brainstorming ideas/Planning Kenley's 2nd Birthday!!!

I am going to try this cleaning system this month, it's 20 minutes every single day, I printed it out and put in on my fridge.
