Fall = New goals

How has everyone been? I am doing great!  The weather is beautiful.  I am sort of sad that summer is over.  I really enjoyed it this year ( maybe because of lack of humidity!! ).  This past week was vacation for Dan and I. We spent the week camping in VT (and freezing my butt off) , hiking, taking Allyson back to Dartmouth for her sophomore year and then more camping and hiking in PA.  It was a very laid-back week.  There was a lot of down time which is just what we needed.  We agree that this was the best vacation we have had in a long while. No Stress. No worries.  No schedule.  Perfection!  BUT…. all good things must come to an end. It’s time to get back to work.  AND time to usher in my favorite season, FALL!

Dan and I will be busy this season with our community’s annual Crop Walk ( more on this in a future post ).

Garden clean up happens.  I have really neglected the weeds and there seems to be some invasive mulberry or something sprouting up all over.  I am not looking forward to all the pulling and digging.  We also need to find a home for a birdhouse I received as a birthday gift.

I also want to get rid of more stuff that we have laying about in boxes taking up valuable garage and closet space.

As for fitness goals, I want to: 

Keep up with running. I need to get a pair of knuckle lights ~ STAT! I want to get my 10K under 1:15.

Get back in to strength training (I have really gotten away from that).

Progress further in my yoga.

I am most looking forward to:

All things pumpkin and spice

Sweaters / boots

Changing leaves

and Crisp cool evenings

Do you have new goals for fall?  What is your favorite part of the season?

  1. Yay for fall! My birthday falls just a few days before fall, so I do like this transition time of the year 🙂 Someday I’d love to visit VT, sounds like a gorgeous vacay you and Dan had! Always great to set goals, I know that you will accomplish them 🙂 Mine is to get a job once my fellowship ends, means I have to do lots of research and networking now since I only have about 4.5 more months….

    Oh, that walk sounds fun! And you have a great list of fall fitness goals! As for your fall faves, I LOVE PUMPKIN, AND SWEATERS, AND FALL COLORS. I am fall obsessed, I can’t wait to go apple picking and pumpkin picking 🙂
