2019 Goals: 3rd Quarter Progress

Four goals done this quarter!  Not as many as I’d like, but still, not totally made about it.  Some are ones that are basically just on-going to the end of the year, and I am doing well on most of them 🙂   I do suspect I won’t make the strength training goals, mostly because we’ve switched up our work out again so we’re only doing those exercises once a week.  No new goals to add this quarter,
