Even though it follows the best month of the year, I still like November a lot. And, honestly, I’m getting kinda excited about it. The temperatures have dropped in Houston and it’s on the rainy side, so I can totally squint and pretend I’m in Michigan, thus easing my post-Halloween blues a bit. It’s not perfect — it’s sort of like the difference between getting yourself off and having someone else do it — but it was 88 degrees last week, so I’m pretty happy to end that spell, even if it’s not quite the same.
I do think this month is going to fly by! Not only do we only hath 30 days, but Thanksgiving weekend is something I’m looking forward to because I like taking road trips with Eric and I’m pretty excited for the 10 hour road trip to Kansas.
I mean, if my worst fears are confirmed and Eric’s dad answers the door wearing his Klan hood, well…at least it will make for a good story.
Anyway. Goals! Better late, than never, right?
My October goals went very well! I cooked hard, I blogged hard, and I did Core Fusion like my life depended on it. The four-times-per-week CF goal definitely took commitment but it was worth it — I’m pretty happy with the results. Last week, I was walking around with no pants on (what?) and caught sight of myself in the mirror and wondered if my legs had gotten a few inches longer. My arms are also looking very toned and more trim. I know the changes in my body are a direct result of all the mountain climbers and other hurts-so-good moves I did all month.
I struggled to come up with November goals, but as I did Core Fusion cardio yesterday and my body just went into the next move before I even heard the cue, I knew I had a new workout goal: do no workout more than once a week.
When I love something, I really love it, and tend to go all out with it. But I realized my body is getting used to it and mentally, I could just use a shake-up. So I’m just going to mix it up all month. Running, spinning, kettlebells, Core Fusion, pilates will all have a welcome place in my routine and I think that the change will be good!
That’s all I got for this month! It’s not that I don’t have anything else I want to work on, it’s just that I usually keep up with my goals from past months, and I think that with ten months now behind me, I have pretty much covered everything I want to do to improve personally and professionally. So really, a little workout switch is good enough for me!
How about you? What are your November goals?
