December Goals

I can't believe that December is here already! I'm "borrowing" the goal idea from The Gazelle, so here we go!
1. Get into the gym 3 times per week. I can take a class, run on the tradmill for 30 minutes, lift, spin, anything!! Just get in there 3 times per week.
2. In addition to the gym time, run for 45 minutes (outside if weather allows, or as an additional workout at the gym).
3. Make more progress with getting rid of "stuff" at my house. Wait, that is too "broad". Each week I need to get rid of 1 large trash bag of clothes (donate) or general junk.
4. Would love to lose the 5 pounds I've been carrying around since the marathon, so that means START COOKING AGAIN!!!!!! Get in more veggies and drink more water!
5. For this one I'm just going to say - Do what needs to be done. I don't really care to elaborate on this right now, but I know what it means.

In other news I've got a Happy Hour planned with my TNT Girlfriends on Friday night, and then we are doing the Jingle Bell run on Saturday morning! There is a "Holiday Costume Contest" at the run, so I'm totally working on a cute "Mrs.Claus" type costume!!!

Hope you are all having a great week!

I am finding it sooooo hard to get motivated with no marathon looming in the distance. When is the first of the rock star halves? I may need to borrow some of your motivation for that!

fantastic goals! And I third the "pics of the costume, please" comments! I love looking at people in costume, but the idea of dressing up myself always stresses me out.

GReat goals! Good to have goals - they don't have to be a marathon to be worth doing. :)

Great goals. I am positive you will reach each one. We recently packed up some old clothes and things, but now we just need to get rid of them.

Great goals! Man I need to get rid of "stuff" as well *sigh* Especially with Christmas coming up. Time to get rid of the old before we bring in the new LOL

Don't let your happy hour be to happy or your jingle bell run may not have to much jingle in it.

A nice, fresh set-o-goals!

I have a hunch that last one means you need to dump somebody! Ha!

Laser hair removal question - did it leave your skin discolored at all? A friend told me that she had looked into laser (this was years ago) but was scared that it would leave a discolored mark on her skin. I can't be having that on my girl-stache! ;)

Good luck on your goals my dearest.

"Do what needs to be done." I have a feeling I can guess this one. I, too need to do what needs to be done. But probably won't happen for a while.

Your costume was so cute! No wonder you won.

Words of Wisdom

"Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing will disturb your peace of mind.
See the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
Think only of the best, work only for the best and expect only the best.
Forget about the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
Spend so much time on the improvement of yourself that there is no time to criticize others.
Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you."

"Fall in love or fall in hate. Get inspired or be depressed. Ace the test or flunk the class. Make babies or make art. Speak the truth or lie and cheat. Dance on tables or sit in the corner. Life is divine chaos. Embrace it. Forgive yourslef. Breathe. And enjoy the ride. "
