Aloha Summer

September is National Self-Improvement month here in the states. It’s also the month where the northern hemisphere has to say “Aloha” to summer.

goodbye summer

I spent a lot of my summer working on self-improvement, from volunteer work to finally adding some credentials to my degree in the form of my insurance  & annuities license to become a financial advisor with WFG.

My self-improvement continues this month with me returning to some routines abandoned over the summer (and years). Here’s the short list:

  1. drinking lots of water daily (want my glowing skin back)
  2. eating healthy (taking vitamins to fill in the gaps hasn’t been cutting it lately)
  3. exercising daily; it was the summer after all but follow Ms_ME on Fitocracy and I’ll follow back
  4. following my personal budget (busy making budgets for others necessitates that I’m actually following mine)
  5. and of course  my blogging schedule

What will improvements will you make this month?
