Maximize My Month - September, 2017

September is here. Kids are back in school, tourists from Arizona have gone home, and it's still feeling hot as ever in San Diego. With a new month comes a new challenge. And this is a simple one, but one I'm excited about. 

However, first we review August. The goal for August was to be more present: meditate daily, practice more yoga (even if just at home), and leave my phone while doing things like walking Arlo. I'm pretty pumped to say that I knocked this month out of the park. 

I made time to meditate (thanks Headspace!), I had the honor of leading my second retreat of the year (all about yoga and meditation - and a little wine), I spent lots of QT with Arlo, and I practiced more yoga (mostly at home). It feels great and this is a kick I will not come off of any time soon.

So on to September...

A few weeks ago I ran a 15 miler with some trail running friends (hi Lou, Megan, and John!) and we got in a convo about hydration. I fessed up that I'm terrible with drinking water before bed and in the morning. And that I felt like it might be inhibiting my exercise abilities to start my day off dehydrated. 

So this month I pledge to drink a glass of water before bed every night and one first thing upon awakening. I started this a few days early (overachiever, I know). I already feel better and even though I've been waking up once during the night to pee, I think it's totally worth it. 

So join me? Let's fight dehydration together!

PS John Nagib, this one's for you. I know you're in.
