Personal Goals for November

If you've been following my personal goals on this blog at all, then you know I haven't been doing very well and I've basically kept the same goals for several months and haven't made any progress. Last month, I literally failed at every goal I set except for "read 2 books." I actually read three; Number the Stars by Lois Lowry, The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, and The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. 

Anyway, I've decided to do things a little differently this time. I want to get serious about being intentional in my goals and stop slacking off! I have broken down my life into several categories and set some very specific and tangible goals. Here's to meeting all of them!
  • Go to God in prayer when I wake up and when I lie down and about everything in between. I'm gonna keep a prayer journal
  • Spend some daily time in the Word myself as well as what I do with Pearson as I mentioned on Monday.
  • Drink 60+ ounces of water every day.
  • Record everything I consume on My Fitness Pal and stay under my daily calorie goal.
  • Be active in some way every day incorporating both cardio and strength training (running/elliptical/biking and blogilates). Even when I'm out of town! (We're going to the mountains this weekend, then the next week I'll be in Atlanta for work, then we'll be spending Thanksgiving at my Grandma's in Arkansas).
  • No soda! Period.
  • Be in bed by 10:30 every night with exceptions only for special occasions like holidays or vacation.
  • Get up early enough to actually eat a decent breakfast before starting work
  • Finish Christmas gift shopping. I want to have it all finished by Thanksgiving and we're actually almost there!
  • Don't buy another thing for myself all month. I spent way too much at Harding this weekend and I have way too much stuff anyway.
  • Only eat out on weekends.
Free Time:
  • Put technology away at night as I mentioned on Monday.
  • Spend less time on Netflix and more time reading.
  • Going along with the above... Finish Bridge to Haven by Francine Rivers and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
  • Get most of my blogging done over the weekends or else whenever Pearson is doing homework.
  • Be organized with my planner and have posts planned a week out in advanced.
  • Spend some time (like 30 minutes) right after I get off of work every day reading and commenting on other blog posts.
What are your personal goals this month?
Thanks for reading!
