November Goals

    Only two months left until the end of the year! Time to get serious about keeping my weight in check. :-)

    Here's what I'd like to accomplish in November. We have two vacations currently planned, so it's going to be a quick month. ;-) We're going to Hawaii, & going to the Oregon coast after Thanksgiving. Yeah for time off! After the wild & crazy October, I'm ready for some relaxation time with the family.

  1. Lose 3 lbs. I'm currently at 145, so I'd like to close down the month at 142. This will definitely be a challenge with our vacation & Thanksgiving.
  2. Continue to track all of my eating in My Fitness Pal.
  3. Complete 1000 minutes of cardio, 6 strength, & 6 stretching (pilates or yoga) workouts.
  4. Stick to our Hawaii vacation budget.
  5. Stick to our monthly budget for November.
  6. Have one date night with M. (This is currently scheduled for our vacation).
  7. Clean my closet + our coat closet.
  8. Meal plan every week in November.
  9. Plan our 2013 calendar.
  10. Finish our 2013 budget planning.
  11. Research flooring for basement.
  12. Take care of emissions testing & car renewal tags.
  13. Get together with 2 friends.
  14. Revisit plan for charitable contributions in 2013. We have money automatically deducted from our paychecks each month, but we'd like to up our yearly total & review the charities to make sure we don't want to shift things around.


  1. Great goals!! :) I'm trying to meal plan every night as well!! It's my nemesis! ;)

  2. Thanksgiving has to be the #1 diet wrecker! I hate it when I'm doing so well with my exercise and eating, then Thanksgiving just plows through. I need to start looking at 2013 goals too.

  3. Your Hawaii vacation sounds incredible. Great job on the weight loss. From your progress bar, it looks like you've lost a lot of weight. Props to you!

  4. Good luck with your goals! Mine are very similar. I need to especially stop being lazy though and finally have carpet put in our living room.

  5. I'm working on your number 7 now. Not a fun job but I always feel great after it is done!
