Goals: Hello June / by Rachel Nordgren


Sharing goals on a Monday that also happens to be the first day of the month is just fantastic. Maybe it's the goal setting junkie in me, but the new week/new month/new goals combination feels lovely and fresh and ahhhh-mazing. It's like a mini January 1st.

While I definitely did better on my overall May goals than I have in the past few months, there were still a couple things I didn't get to. One of my overall goals for 2015 is to bust off some serious poundage, which isn't coming along as quickly as I'd like, so summer is my excuse to get outside more and have more green smoothies for breakfast. Because you know what makes an icy, dark winter morning even more depressing? Shivering under four sweatshirts as you're drinking a freezing cold kale smoothie.

Onto the goals, shall we?
