I'm looking ahead - November Goals

Friday, October 22, 2010

With October nearing the end, I have really been thinking a lot about my November goals. To start I know that my before work and lunch time walks may be a little more limited so I have signed up for 2 fitness classes at the college. They are each an hour one night a week, so I know that my Monday and Thursday evenings will have that workout through November. I will also walk when I can, but with structured classes if I don’t get the walk in at least I will have an hour of class those two nights. I also plan on doing my strength exercises and looking up a couple different ones from what I have been doing. It is time to change these up.

I also need to get more serious about what I’m putting in my mouth during these critical holiday times. I have a long term goal in a few months and I would like to hit it. I have been a bit stalled on the weight loss journey and I would like to at least come close to the original goal. Of course if I have to change that up I will, but I believe I could get a little better at losing some more weight.

So exercise through November is a key goal because I live in the gloomy North East. I do have my eye on some new workout equipment for Christmas so I will stay excited about exercising through the up coming worse months of winter too. It never hurts to plan ahead.

Eating healthy especially during the weeks when there are other gatherings where I may not stay in calorie range is also a key goal. I like to have a plan in place, but also allow myself some leeway.

So, have you thought about your November goals?

    I don't usually have too much of a problem with holidays. I love you for setting those goals. I am going to follow your lead and sit down and plan some goals for myself for next month.

    Thanks for sharing and reminding me about how important goal setting is.

    I know the month is almost over and it seems like it just started so I wasn't even thinking about new goals for November. The months go by too fast for me. emoticon

    Great planning ahead! Of course, we all should enjoy our turkey dinner (or whatever Thanksgiving brings us), one day won't derail our plans. But it's the days after with so much of leftover pies and sweets. Moderation is the key!
    I don't live in the North East, but I too find it so hard to exercise when it's getting colder and gloomier.
    Enjoy your month ahead!

    Boy, you are way ahead of me. I'm lucky to plan two days in advance!!

    It is definitely good to plan ahead! October is just zooming by too... some of my goals mirror yours - to just stay active and keep running through the cold winter months, and to avoid holiday food/party binges by eating what I would like in moderation. I'd also like to lose a pound or two!
    Good luck on your goals!

    Marvelous goals for November! I am trying to decide whether to have turkey for Thanksgiving or fulfill my real desire - a big pizza! (This year to a "off year" for the holidays - family is off elsewhere. But I enjoy the "off years" almost as much as I enjoy the family years! Next year will be full of family - I take my peace when I can find it.)
