November Goals

1 Nov

I cannot believe that it is November! How did that happen? The year is nearly over but I feel like I am just getting started! Next weekend will mark my one year Healthy Living/Weight Watchers anniversary. This all began November 8, 2008 when I stepped on the scale at my very first Weight Watchers meeting! This will all continue …

I have been writing “take measurements” on my to-do list for weeks. Well, today I finally got to it!

Measurements for November 1, 2009 (I used my yellow tape measure and I wore my blue sports bra and undies):

Chest: 42.5

Upper Arm (Right/Left): 14.5/15.5

Waist (Belly Button): 40.75

Hips: 45.5

Thigh (Right/Left): 27/27

*Height: 5’4″

Weight: 198.8

*Height was added at the request of my girl Mary over at A Merry Life

One of my goals for the Hot 100 was to finally have some sort of schedule and to get organized! This month I want to really get that going. I know I need routine! I do so much better when I have a schedule and routine.  This will be a huge part of my goals for the week and month!

November Goals:

  • workout 21 days this month
  • truly follow the healthy guidelines every day (fruits, veggies, vitamins, whole grains, lean protein, water, and activity)
  • track food and activity daily
  • write a workout plan (much like my menu plan) every Sunday
  • start 200 Squats Challenge
  • start 200 sit-ups Challenge

My “BIG” Goal for this month is to push myself!! I want to feel sore muscles!! I need to feel sore muscles! I need to push my body! I have become too complacent and I think sore muscles are the answer! I know this sounds completely crazy but sore muscles are the answer!

Goals for week of November 1st:

  • wake up at 5 am to get some sort of activity in. This is going to be brutal!!! I am not a morning person! But, I let too many obstacles get in my way after school.
  • track food and activity every day
  • use kettlebell this week!!
  • try a yoga or pilates workout from On-Demand

What are you goals? Do you even have goals? Why or why not?

PS~Watch for a Halloween post tomorrow! I know it is a few days late but I felt this goals post should come first!

until next time, keep it real

    I know exactly what you mean about needing sore muscles. It is almost as if that is our badge of honor, letting us know we did what it took. I hope the exercise went well today. And the goals for November – they look great!

    Thanks for sharing your November goals here! I love seeing what everyone is working on :). This month I am sticking to my calorie budget, exercising 5 days per week, and hoping to see the lower 180s on the scale when December rolls around.

    Hey there! Just found your blog today because of us both attending FitBloggin 10. Our stats are similar too and we have similar goals. Definitely try those yoga Ondemand. I just did my first one last week and it’s my goal to try 3 more this week. Good luck!

    Oh man, I am so impressed that you are getting up so early! I am not a morning person, either.
