In lieu of the craziness that is happening in America right now, I thought I’d focus on something positive today: goals. Monthly goals are always fun to write and help me focus. Even if I don’t accomplish everything, I still want to continue to move forward.
My October goals were ambitious, especially since we had a lot of traveling on our to-do list.
Read Two Books. Nope, not even close. I didn’t finish one book. I’m embarrassed.
Work Out 5 – 6 Days a Week. Sorta. I will say that I have been very good about my workouts lately. I have been doing a lot of intervals and a lot of weights, mostly high intensity interval training. I don’t think I technically worked out 5 days a week every week, but I did many times. Win!
Purge my Closet. Check. I finally donated a lot of items that were in my closet. A lot of things were just too big or something that I didn’t even like. I would put on a sweater and look at myself in the mirror a few hours lately and just think, “Why do I own this? This is so ugly and unflattering.” Into the pile it went. The best news is now I can go shopping.
Try at least 1 New Recipe. Win. I made a healthier version of chicken fried rice and it is so good!
And now, onto goals for November!
Write 35,000 words for my book. I’ve wanted to write a book for as long as I can remember. I (clearly) love to write and I feel like I have a story to tell. I’ve started writing it several times but haven’t gotten very far. This month is the month to get a chunk done.
Decorate for the holidays. Admittedly, I’ve already started doing this. With no Thanksgiving, I feel like there’s nothing holding me back. The Christmas markets are amazing here, so I feel like some new decor is in my future.
Try a new restaurant. We love going out to eat and have found some really great restaurants in our area. But now that we’ve found some great ones, we keep going back. It’s not a bad thing, but I want to branch out and try something new this month.
Get to 30 burpees in one sitting. I love/hate burpess. They are intense, but effective. They get your heart rate up and are super toning. I want to do 30 in a row, no breaks.
What are your November goals?
Tuesday was my half-birthday. I’m halfway to 29…and that feels…
Wow, it’s already the end of July. I can’t even believe…
