November was a rocky month for me. I don't think I shined in the ways I planned or reached the goals I set for myself but, overall I am counting the month as a win. WHY?
1. I am still showing up.
2. I am still learning.
3. I am getting physically and mentally stronger everyday.
I am trying new things! Yesterday, I made these 2-ingredient Pumpkin Muffins from Spark Recipes. I also made the Egg n' Oats recipe that was delish! I am gonna keep practicin'
Thanks to my SparkFriends, I am going to attempt to decorate my house for Christmas. This isn't a particularly happy time of year for me but I am changing and maybe it can be different this year. So, I am starting with uplifting my surroundings. This is just the beginning because once my creative juices start flowing, WATCH OUT! My orders will start coming in next week so, I will share more on my theme later (yes I picked
A little twinkling tree in the bedroom that is Bad Kitty proof
While I will continue to weigh myself daily, I am not factoring my success on a number. I want my goals this month to focus on my behavior and actions. I eat my veggies, workout and drink water. It's time to start setting myself up for long-term success:
1. Bed by 10 on weekdays and no later than 11 on weekends
2. Limit processed foods to no more than 3 items a day (includes snacks, dressings and veggies)
3. Daily ME -TIME Activity not related to work or working out
4. Next day meal planning will will be completed daily prior to bedtime snack
5. Ab work 3 days a week.
These are lofty goals but I believe you should go big or go home! I only wear big girl pants whether I am a size 8 or 18 (prefer my 8)
I can do this because I need to do these things if I am going to achieve the next level of success I want.
I am sending you only the most positive vibes that you are satisfied with all your hard work in November and you are ready to continue doing more in December.
Work hard, work smart, work harder! XOXO
