June Recap + July Intentions

July Intentions - Sunset in Austin, TX | kaileenelise.com

Hello, lovelies. I hope you are well and enjoying a great start to July! The turning of a new month always delights me. A fresh page on the calendar, the completion of 4 weeks, and the beginning of something new.

But first, I have to say that June was a total blast! My blogging bestie visited and we finally shared stories face-to-face. The next weekend, we drove up to Dallas to see some friends and I ate my bodyweight in queso. Perhaps as a reaction to over-eating chips, My Mister and I started going on long Saturday morning runs.

We went tux shopping and found a band that matches my engagement ring! I started wearing a Fitbit, took my first Barre3 class, and went to rooftop yoga. We enjoyed happy hours, brunches, dinners, and soccer games with friends... and we even went tubing down a river one Saturday.

June was also my "testing ground" to decide if I wanted to start blogging again. I posted every Thursday for 5 weeks, and really loved it. Thanks to all of you who shared support in the comments, on Twitter, and by email. Posting my 30 before 30 list gave me a fresh feeling of commitment and excitement about blogging, which is all I can ask for!

In July, I am looking forward to staying put. We don't have any travel on the calendar (at the moment) and I have my sights on enjoying weekends around town. Austin is such a fun and active city. There are tons of sporty things to do, and just as many delicious restaurants to try. And staying in is fun too. This past weekend confirmed that my Mister & I are very content on our balcony with some margaritas, chips, and salsa. Yum!

This month I want to continue focusing on gratitude and the things that make me happy. I have been eating healthier, working out more often, and (trying) to sleep more. Ultimately, my goal is to have fun this summer while still pursuing a healthy, active lifestyle.

Here are my July intentions — what are yours?

Have a fun + relaxing 4th of July Go to 15 yoga classes Try 3 more Barre3 classes Make 4 new recipes Meditate daily Journal often Finish The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg Run/walk a total of 50 miles this month Give #30EarlyMornings an honest try Spend time by water
