September Goals

Ugh, August was such a crappy month.  I hardly read anything, work was insane, dealing with the new place sucked and I kind of turned into a giant slug.  Now that September is here, I am feeling much better and decided to set some goals to try to get back on track.  I usually try to keep an unofficial reading list for the month but lately I have kind of been reading whatever sounds good at the moment so I don't have a list for this month.

Reading Goals:
1.) Read one challenge book this month.-I only have 4 books left not including Les Mis, if I read one a month for the rest of the year I will be able to finish my challenges.
2.) Read at least 300 pages in Les Miserables.-I definitely won't finish this in a month but if I try to break it down, I should be able to get through it.
3.) Get caught up on Library Books-I need to decide which I will read and which are getting returned because I am overwhelmed.

Personal Goals:
1.) Exercise at least 5 days a week-I am training for a 1/2 marathon in October and I am nowhere near as ready as I was in the spring.  I ran a 5K on Monday and felt great doing it though my time was significantly slower than I would have liked.  I know my next 1/2 marathon time won't be a PR but I really need to get moving or I won't be able to make it all.
2.) Stretch every day-Not only am I not as ready as I would like to be, I have been having issues with my IT band.  Stretching helps a lot and I just need to stick to doing it everyday.
3.) Work on a cake for October-I have a cake design in mind to make for my anniversary on Oct. 2.  It's going to take a lot of time to make all of the pieces and I am hoping to have time to work on it some this month.

I am hoping I will be able to meet my goals for the month and am just looking forward to September being way better than August!

Do you have any goals for the month of September?
