November was a fantastic month full of exciting firsts (first time hosting Thanksgiving and first time teaching a community class at a studio) and memorable times as the BOY became a lawyer. It was a month of good outdoor runs and intense strength sessions. It was a month of delicious food and sweet deserts. It was a month of gratefulness!!!
As we round the corner into December, I am filled with happiness thinking back on how the year turned out and looking forward to many more exciting times ahead.
I know that December will be a fun way to end this amazing year on a high!
I thought it would be good to check in on my November/December goals if for no other reason than to remind myself what I was hoping to accomplish and refocus for the month ahead. I’ve added in a new study goal too since I am taking a professional test early next year and am struggling to study as much as I want at night after work.
1. Exercise 5 days per week-I’ve adjusted my workouts for the winter and have consistently been getting in 5 per week.
2. Host our first Thanksgiving-GOAL MET
3. Teach a community yoga class- GOAL MET
4. Eat clean (even during the holidays)-Here we go…
5. Study hard
Since we finally ran out of Thanksgiving leftovers, it was time to hit up the grocery store. I let the BOY dictate our menu as he is the one who will be cooking dinner this week.
