We are already one-third of the way into the month and I’m just getting around to posting my goals. I have had some of them written down in different places, but am only now putting them in one list. With Thanksgiving, Christmas, work events, and travels for Will’s interviews coming up, I know the next few months, just like the past few weeks, will be very busy and I want to make sure I am focusing on important things and not just the urgent things. I am looking to these November goals to keep me on track and focused to make this a happy, and not a stressful season
– Drink 90 oz water every day (giving grace for days I am on the road) – I definitely didn’t drink much water on the road, which was much of the month, which made for bad habits on the other days
– Only buy coffee 1x or less per week – Aside from the road trip to Dallas (grace – it was a long trip with early mornings), yes!
– Continue to work on exercises from Designing Your Life
– Help my sister move to Dallas
– Enjoy time with family over an out-of-town wedding weekend
– Spend quality time with friends
– Make a fall fun list – See it here!
– Start brainstorming Christmas gifts – it may seem early, but it was so nice to be done with all of our Christmas shopping by the second week of December last year and be able to focus on the season. – We spent a date brainstorming! :)
– Be present – I think I did a decent job of this, but am putting it back on my list for this month as well as the holiday season starts
– Go on a coffeeneuring date
– Celebrate 11 years with Will (since we started dating)!
– Post two gift guides (I’m excited about these!)
– Figure out all Christmas gifts
– Start buying Christmas gifts (Black Friday/Cyber Monday, anyone?!)
– Find a running routine with the newly dark nights – run at least 3 times a week
– Write down 3 things I’m grateful for each day
– Prepare well at work, home, and with the blog for November and December travels (Thanksgiving, one week away in December, and a post-Christmas trip)
– Help with Thanksgiving dinner/dessert
– Be present
