currently | december + goals


I’m not going to write for the 3rd post in a row about how it’s December. We all know it is. So, without further adieu, let’s just get to what I’m currently up to!

Planning: I can’t say I’m really planning anything except last minute get togethers with friends & what to get my family for Christmas.

Listening to: There are 4 songs I can’t stop playing. Everglow by Coldplay, Love on the Weekend by John Mayer, Love on the Brain by Rihanna & True Colors by The Weeknd. I’m basically playing them over & over again until I inevitably get sick of them.

Drinking: Not enough water lately. I really need to step my game up in that department.

Watching: Holiday movies. This week: The Holiday. What are some of your favorite holiday movies? Or better yet: your must see holiday movies?

Eating: Better for the most part. Trying to get as much fruit & veggies in as possible.

Looking forward to: Christmas with my family 🙂

Loving: My new coat I got as an early Christmas gift. I’m wearing it in my Friday Five post from last week. SO amazing. And SO comfortable & warm for the winter season. I’m obsessed.

I posted this on my FB yesterday & it was received pretty well:

I’ll be sticking to a glass of wine on holidays or special occasions, but other than that, zero booze. I feel good about this choice.

Goals for November:

  • Exercise 3 days a week, at least one of them being a running day. – mostly, yes. Minus this last week & a half or so, I did really well with this.
  • Complete all of my Math homework within 3-4 days after Monday night’s class so that it stays fresh in my mind. – nope. but, I did play catch up over the weekend.
  • No fast food (unless lunch with a friend is Chipotle or something, then that’s ok) – I win. woo! 
  • Read 1 book – TV off at 8:30pm on nights that I don’t have class – definitely no. 

So – November goals, I’d give myself a 75%. My anxiety + school stress has been overwhelming.

Goals for December:

  • Pass my final exams
  • Read 1 book! Trying this again…
  • Devote more time to meditation & working on myself
  • Exercise 3x/wk

I hope that I can manage things a little better once school is over for the semester so I can focus on some fitness goals while I’m off!

What are some of your December goals? How are you ending the year?

    My water intake is horrible lately. I am making that a 2017 goal to get in all my ounces every day.
    I need a new winter coat something fierce!!

    Still harping on the fact that it’s December, ’cause WHAT?

    Also, my water intake has dropped terribly low, and I can tell, but it still hasn’t inspired me to drink more water. I’m adding more tea in too since it’s so cold in my office, but still trying to find a workable system to keep track of how much I’m drinking. But so far, nothing has stuck. I’m accepting ideas if you’ve got them.
