So remember my November goals? It’s time to see how I followed through with them.
1. Drink more water.
This was a hit or miss. Some days were better than others. I carry my water around everywhere I went but sometimes I just don’t feel like drinking water. I’m still gonna work on this. But it’s getting better I tell you!
2. Have a better sleep pattern.
This has been good! Now, I go to bed between 8:30 and 9:30 (I know. That’s totally grandma status). Then I wake up at 5:30 to head off to the gym. If I need to, I’ll take a nap in the middle of the day. This has been working out great. I have basically been doing this every night…except Wednesdays because American Horror Story is on at 10. I have my priorities.
3. Add more strength training to my workouts.
Winning! Now that I’m doing Jamie Eason’s Twelve Week Trainer, I have been doing strength training 3-4 days a week. And I have been loving it! As of right now, it hurts to sit. Or stand. Or just lay down. I think it’s working.
4. Procrastinate less.
So what are my December goals? I’m glad you asked.
1. Continue with November goals.
2. Finish reading a “fun” book.
I have had zero time to read a book for myself which sucks because I love to read. But since I will have four weeks to do nothing (holla!), I plan on finally finishing a book! Up first: Michael Pollan’s In Defense of Food.
3. Make homemade ravioli.
I’ve always wanted to do this. Obviously, I’m not gonna make it in the dorm. I’ll have a lot more time at home to make goodies so this will be on the top of my list. And what recipe do I want to try? Mama Pea’s Ravioli in Cashew Cream.
4. PR in a race.
I have a half marathon on Sunday. Then another half next Saturday. Then a full on December 26. So I am crossing my fingers that I PR at one of them. The one this Sunday is super hilly, so if I PR at that one, even better!
Animals. Did you really think I wasn’t going to use a picture of my cat? Pshh it’s as if you don’t know me at all.
