Dec 1, 2017


It's time to look back on November goals and set a few new ones for December.  

First up, an update on my 6 goals from last month: 

1 / Improve my exercise and eating. (Partial success.)

My goal was to improve upon my numbers from October.  Number of days I hit 10,000 steps and total number of steps for the month were both losses.  Not terrible numbers, but less than I did in October.  Amount of time exercising was also a fail.  I wasn't too far off, but I didn't quite make it.  I did succeed in improving the number of days I "ate well."  And overall, I feel like my exercise and eating were okay - just not as good as I would have liked.    

2 / Complete Christmas shopping.  (I think so???)  

My list looks good.  Brian and I are planning a wrapping night (while we watch Christmas Vacation) for this weekend.  So, that will be the true tell.  Right now, everything is tucked away in our closet and I'm not 100% sure what's in there.  

3 / Order Christmas cards.  (Done.) 

They arrived in the mail on Wednesday and I have about half of them addressed.  I also had the forethought to buy stamps while we were visiting Brian's parents over Thanksgiving.  I was pretty proud of myself for that, as getting stamps at their house consists of a two block walk while getting stamps at home always seems like a huge hassle.   

4 / Post three more blog posts. (Yep.)  

5 / Watch and take notes on one workshop from the Read Aloud Revival membership site. (Done.)  

I completed a workshop called Poetry Teatime.  

6 / Finish my 2017 reading goal.  (Yes!)  

This one makes me so happy.  When I set the goal at 40 books, I imagined that I would be reading like crazy the last couple weeks of the year to get 'er done.  Instead, it looks like I'll end the year between 45 and 50.

And onto December goals:  

1 / Improve my eating and exercise.  

It's going to be another month of crazy schedules, so I will be happy if I can meet or beat my November numbers.  

2 / Hang photos in the living room.

I recently purchased three big photo frames with the intention of hanging family photos above the couch.  It's been a few weeks and I've made no progress on getting the prints ordered.  Hopefully, making this goal public, will push me to accomplish this.  

3 / Watch and take notes on one workshop from the Read Aloud Revival membership site by 12/15 and then cancel my membership.  

There is one more workshop that I really want to watch, but I feel like the bulk of the value that comes with membership is aimed toward families with slightly older children or who are currently home schooling.  I definitely plan to join again in the future, but want to cancel my current membership before my next monthly payment is due.  
4 / Post two more blog posts.  

5 / Finish my goal planning for 2018, so I can start the new year off  on the right foot.
