November 09 Goals

I skipped October becuase I knew I was going to be swamped with wedding stuff. I suck, I know.
Lets start fresh with November, shall we?

  • Send out wedding thank you's. It may seem pathetic that this is one of my goals. I should want to thank all the wonderful people that helped make our big day so special. Instead, I am dreading the writers block and hand cramps that I foresee in my near future :(
  • Read 3 books. Because knowledge is power people! And because so many good ones were recently released.
  • Get back into the morning routine. Now that R and I are married & rested, its time to get back to the grind. We need to wake up when the alarm actually rings, and I need to do simple things like make his lunch & iron his clothes the night before instead of running around like a crazy woman 5 mins before we are supposed to leave the house.
  • Eat Breakfast every morning.  I seriously suck at this- it's only the most important meal of the day! I really need to get my metabolism going in the a.m. rather than waiting til oh... noonish.
  • Start the couch 2 5k running program. I'm stealing this from C at Classically Modern. NEST. Im not a big runner (partly because I'm lazy and partly because I have asthma) but I would like to try this program out. Read all about it here.
  • Walk my dogs more often. Because I love them and they deserve it.
  • Bake something delicious once a week. I'm a much better baker than I am cook, not to mention my boys all love sweets. (furry ones included)
  • Make myself a fabulous header. It's time I fire up illustrator and give my sorry looking blog header a fresh look! 
  • Get a 2nd job. I've been thinking about getting a 2nd job as a bartender when we move to Lakewood a few nights a week. My plan is to spend this $$ only on credit card bills to get rid of them faster.
Wish me luck friends!
Do you have any special goals for this month?

Sending out wedding thank yous will be such a huge weight off of your shoulders! I just put on a couple of movies and whipped them out. Good luck with your goals!

Love the goals, a lot of my short term goals are very similar.

Kristin said...

I'm SUCH a better baker than cook. Probably because I enjoy it more. Fabulous goals. Good luck!

Emily said...

I've been wanting to do the Couch to 5K program, too! Good luck with your goals!

These are such great goals!
How very productive of you.
Mornings are so lame - I'm just bad at them, actually. I'll make that MY goal this month, too.
Plus, I want to get into a daily yoga practice again.

Oh, annnd my blog IS indeed inspired by my favorite song of all time 'Tiny Dancer'. :)
