December 2, 2017

I can’t believe it’s December. This year has flown by and I’m ready to close it out with a great month! But first we will review my November goals.


1. Read 10 books.
I finished 8 books this month…so still really good just didn’t quite get there.

2. Be physically active 21 days this month.
Didn’t quite meet this one either, but I was active 19 days this month…so I’m not necessarily disappointed with myself on this one.

3. Make progress on 15 of my 101 in 1,001 items.
I marked one off the list and made progress on 14 other items, so this one is a success.

4. Develop a morning and nighttime routine habit.
Nope…not even a little bit. I will try this one again.

5. Decorate for Christmas.

So overall, I completely finished 2 of 5, and did really well on 2 of the other goals. Just one complete flop in November.


1. Finish all Christmas shopping and wrap all presents.
I’m already at least 75% done with my Christmas shopping, but I still have a few things to get. I’m hoping to have everything bought by next weekend.

2. Be physically active 16 days this month.
I figured 16 was a realistic goal for this month with all of the Christmas parties and vacation happening.

3. Develop a morning and nighttime routine habit.
This is a real struggle. I didn’t do the routines I had written out hardly at all in November. I’m going to try again this month.

4. Make progress on 20 of my 101 in 1,001 items.
I made progress on 15 items last month and I’m going to try to step it up even more this month. With just about 9 months or so left before this challenge is over, I need to make lots of progress each month to finish at least most of these items.

5. Read 10 books.
I need to read exactly 10 books this month to complete my Goodreads goal of 52 books this year. I’ll definitely read several smaller books this month to make sure I reach 52!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas season!
