Fitness Friday...November Goals

It's been a while since I have made monthly goals here, and as I sit here ready to crash into my coffee cup, I am doubting I'll be able to keep up.  However, I know myself and I know that goals are just what I need....even through the extra pounds and tired eyes I need those goals to feel like me again!  With that in mind I am going to go easy on myself....this month :-)!  I have my 6 week appointment late November and will hopefully get the green light to begin running again.  Until then it is walking...and walking...and walking!  Gotta Pile on those Miles right?!  So here are my goals for November....
  • Lose 8lbs...This is a big one since I know running will be easier if my weight is down.  Again I am putting it out there in order to keep myself focused!
  • Run/Walk 75 miles....sweat at least once a day.  It is amazing how much lighter my mood is when I sweat!
  • Weights 3 days/week...once I get the ok!
3 simple goals to keep me focused this month...3 simple goals to get me out of my pjs and into my workout gear!
What are your goals for this month??

Thankful Day 2:  Today I am thankful for my inlaws...they have been a blessing to our family in so many ways...most recently they let us crash their house during Sandy so that we could have power...added bonus was when my mother-in-law woke up to feed Aubrey so I could go back to bed!!!  AMEN!!

  1. Glad you made it through Sandy and that you have such a great family support.

    I think 3 simple goals for a month leading into the holidays is a wonderful idea. I too love how much better my mood is after I've done a bit of sweating.

  7. No goals for me, unless you count finishing my Disney half with a smile on my face.

    I'm also trying to decide whether to run a 5k the week after the half and try to hit that elusive sub-30. Not sure I have it in me yet.

  8. Progress, not perfection right? Good for you for getting back at it - don't overdo though.

    I have 3 November goals to do with fitness, food, and behaviors. Have a great weekend.

  9. I do so much better with goals, too. Isn't it great how sweating can boost our mood? It was a lifesaver for me when L was a newborn. You'll see those pounds drop soon, especially when you start running again!
