Goals for August 2017
We are about to start the last real month of summer which makes me a little sad about how quickly the season is going. I guess it is just all the more reason to soak it up and ENJOY August. First though, I wanted to share what I did in July.
Do a freaking Ironman
YES! It was a perfect first experience and you can read about it here.
Kick off some marketing innovation in KW
It has been a pretty big month of personal development for me. Beyond meeting to establish the groundwork for a number of marketing and local initiatives, I have begun some blog coaching, life coaching and executive coaching. It is a great use of time since I have wrapped up heavy training and it is a good way to balance out all the other areas of my life at the moment.
I had kept it pretty short for July and I am going to keep this same focus for August. Here’s what I am wanting to do in August:
Have a vacation in BC and compete in ITU AG World Championships
Mid August, I am headed out to Penticton to compete in the ITU AG Duathlon World Championships. I am looking forward to a fun event and the adventures and exploring around BC that will follow. Mark and I are road tripping through the mountains and doing lots of trail running, hiking and biking. I am really looking forward to it.
Enroll for a course this fall
The last couple years in for work, I have been just catching my breath and adapting to changes. Now that some of the dust has settled, I am going to pick up a few courses and keep getting better at communicating!
Read more books
When I read a book, it means I am relaxing somewhere (often outside) and my feet are up. I have not done much of this lately so basically my goals are to relax and vacation for August. Rough life.
This is a short one today! I hope you all have a sunshiney, awesome weekend. I will leave you with a much-requested recipe on my insta-stories this week:
So I’ve been getting a lot of requests for the post workout brownies recipe I posted on my insta stories last night. I’m the furthest thing from a food blogger but these little gems are worth sharing. (This is my version of @chocolatecoveredkatie ‘s recipe – go to her blog for more delicious comfort food) INGREDIENTS: * 2 ripe bananas, ? smashed * 1/3 cup cocoa powder * 2/3 cup peanut butter * 1 serving of @hammercanada chocolate protein powder *1/4 cup maple syrup or honey * 1 tsp vanilla extract *dash of salt * chocolate chips (you can leave these out but I couldn’t imagine why…?) INSTRUCTIONS: Place in a greased pan and in a 375 F preheated oven for 15-20 minutes. Because you are a multitasking super hero, make the icing while they are baking by smashing a ripe avocado with 1/3 cup cocoa powder, 3 tbsp of maple syrup, a dash of salt and 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract. Ice the brownies and either burn the roof of your mouth off by eating them immediately or put them in the fridge to cool. They actually taste even better the next day. Not that mine last that long… ENJOY!!!
