Fall. My favorite season. I love the color of the leaves. And I love the cooler weather. I can be in shorts, jeans, etc., and a jacket and be comfortable. However, Fall means Winter is around the corner and that I do dislike. Oh well. I will enjoy it as long as I can.
I was looking at my Spring bucket list and realized that I will include some of those items on this list. Nothing wrong with it, right?
🍁 Leave work stuff at work and leave at 3pm. Back to school is a lot of work and exhausting. I need to find a balance between work and my personal life. I start work at 8:30am but usually get there between 7-7:30am so there is really no need for me to stay late. Many times I do too much – more than I should and then I resent it.
🍁 Continue to use the Peloton bike. I am not training for a race but running here and there so I might as well use the bike. Still working on taking all of Camila’s classes. She has 206 classes and I’ve taken 91 leaving me with 115 more to go. I am leaving the 45 minute classes till the end. Those intimidate me.
🍁 Read more books. With the extra time that I will have from not staying late at work nor working at home, I can do this. I’ve been going through Wendy’s books from her reviews and am almost finished with the books she reviewed last August. I am really amazed at the amount of books she reads on a monthly basis. As much as I love reading, unfortunately I haven’t made time for it. Pleased to say that I’ve read 7 books this year. Currently I am reading “Landslide” and have already put on hold 3 more books.
🍁 Have fun! I plan to do more things with family and friends. Yes, that involves food and laughing!
🍁 Of course a . And that is all I will say about it. 😀

Reducing your work stress by drawing a strict line is a great idea, Zenaida!
After getting some good rest from work, you will come back with a lot more energy for the next day.
I also plan to read more books!
That is the plan! I don’t want to stay too late anymore. It is tiring and exhausting. The work will have to wait till the next day.
I like your goals.
Especially leaving your job at the office.
But I hate the darkness. I do love summer.
Hope you have a great Fall.
I do like Summer but hate the heat and humidity. 😀
These are good goals! Sounds like you have a nice fall ahead of you. Yes- Wendy reads a LOT of books and they all sound so good. It always makes me happier when I find time for reading.
I hope you’re successful adjusting your work/life balance. Life is too short not to enjoy your leisure time- but easier said than done, I know.
Reading relaxes me. It takes me to a different place and sometimes to a “better” place. 😀
Definitely make time for yourself after work! You put a lot of work into your job so you deserve to head home at a reasonable hour! I LOVE Camila and I’m bummed that her live teaching schedule changed as I used to take her Monday morning classes live. I catch up as much as I can with her classes on demand.
I rarely take any of Camila’s live classes so I had no idea that her schedule changed. I am glad the classes are available on demand for those that cannot take the live classes.
I must have missed a post-thought you were training for a 50K in Chicago? I do hope you can leave work stuff at work but I am sure that is no easy task
I was. Work was just too much and I was too tired to run much less do the longer runs. Plus add in plantar fasciitis in the mix and that meant no race.
Leave work stuff at work, and logging off on time, is a bucket list item that I will try to do this Fall as well!
Let’s do it Kim!
