August Sliced

With August behind me and a couple of weeks into my new work schedule, I am starting to settle into a routine. Not only is my house unpacked from my recent move, I only have a couple of areas to organize. I still need to get some pictures on the wall too. Maybe I’ll get that done this month. I know your curious to how my August stacked up through all this transition, so I won’t keep you waiting any longer.

0 – Books finished. This work thing is getting in the way of my reading goal! Good thing I enjoy my job and the people I meet.

1 – Article written for Today’s Mama.

1 – Pound gained. I did so good in July, I was hoping it was permanent. I’m still doing good overall for the year, so I won’t let this small set back slow me down.

2 – New story ideas. I need time to finish the ones I started so I can get to them!

3 – Potlucks at work. That’s another thing I enjoy about my job; I work with people who like to eat as much as I do!

4 – New tires on my car. It was necessary after one of them blew out and I realized how bad the rest were.

9 – Falls roller skating; three for each of us. I think I’m the only one still hurting. Darn tailbone!

28 – Countries visited blog

45 – States visiting blog

306 – Words added to my book

1071 – Page views

Another month gone and September is speeding after it. How did your August go?

Slices of August

Labor day traditionally marks the end of summer, but here in Arizona most of our kids have been back to school for weeks and the heat will stretch out for weeks more. Regardless, August was a good month so let’s recap how it sliced.August scale

2 – Recipes on our Real Food for Real People blog. I actually posted one of them this time.

3.0 – Pounds lost! I already met my goal for the year.

5 – Books read. I finished Where the Heart Is the night of the 31st, but I still made it!

8 – Article posted, including our Princess Academy Family Book Club.

9 – Days logging my food. I’m surprised I did so well on my weight loss goals; it must have been the reduction in my treat intake.

15 – Projects completed. It felt like a very productive month.

25 – Blog posts. Now that’s more like it!

1091 – Page views. Thanks to you, I have a new record!

1597 – Words written during WOW, ANWA‘s Week Of Writing. I exceeded my goal and I’m very happy with my progress as long as I don’t think about how a few people did twice as many in one day!

Share your August successes. It so much more fun when we cheer each other on!
