I know that Fall is quickly upon us, but I am really going to miss you summer. You’re my favourite season and I just don’t know how to quit you. (wait, wasn’t that a line from Brokeback Mountain?) Anyways…..
Get ready for the Pumpkin Spice invasion. Kind of like the British invasion, only doused in the scent of pumpkin spice. Gum, lattes, muffins, air fresheners and candles. No stone is left unturned in this marketing madness. What will be next? Pumpkin spiced underwear? Well? Everything else is going pumpkin spiced. It doesn’t feel like it’s almost Fall because it has been very hot and humid this week but there is no denying that changes are coming. You can’t avoid the flora all around that solidifies the obvious. Fall is coming and soon.
With a new season, I think about my goals. What I hope to achieve and how will I achieve these goals? I have a bunch up my sleeve and I am really looking forward to getting started.
- Hatha Yoga. I didn’t get in much Yoga in the summer, except with the Yoga Collective at home. I was focusing more on Pilates. I am planning on taking the 8:00-9:00pm Hatha class on Monday’s at the gym. It does wonders for my balance and keeping in tune with my body. I will also continue with my Kundalini meditation that I learned from Tenille’s class. This does wonders my for stress, anxiety and fretty Betty tendencies.
- The new plan from Fitpeel! I will begin a training program with a personal trainer. I talked about my plateau in a previous post. Not only does this include a full program geared to my goals, but it will also include help with meal planning.
- Thanksgiving Dinner. This year instead of cooking and endless dishes, we have decided to enjoy a full course turkey dinner in wine country, Ontario. I am really looking forward to that. So yes, I am already planning a cheat meal.
- 5K perhaps? I might be doing a turkey trot race with my niece if she doesn’t have to work that weekend. This goal is still on the shelf until further notice.
I really look forward to the coming season. Fall is up there in my favourites, right behind summer. When I say I love winter, hell will have officially frozen over.
What are your Fall goals?
