I cannot believe it’s already time to write this post! Seriously! Haha and I’m even posting it a few days late since it’s now DECEMBER 3RD!!! December is a great month though, well, after those annoying things called finals… But hey, I get a whole month off once they’re over so I’m good with that! Molly is also very excited for the holiday season:


I hope you all had a great weekend, I certainly did! I’ll share more about that with you all tomorrow, but I thought since I’m already late I should do my goals post today! Also, if you’d still like to participate in the November Book Club for A Sweet Life in Paris, remember to send your link to your review, or your review itself to by 5am tomorrow morning and I can add it in!


Here’s a re-cap of last month’s goals:

November Goals

1) Work on my relationship with God. It’s definitely a slow moving goal, but one that I feel like I’ve managed to at least keep in mind every day this month. I haven’t been as great about doing my morning devotionals as I’d like, especially over Thanksgiving, but getting them in 4-5 days a week is a significant improvement, and I think it’s really improved my overall outlook on life. This is definitely a goal that I have in the back of my mind always, so I won’t be listing it on here specifically anymore.

2) Make time for new friends. Done and done! I tried to spend plenty of time with friends both here in Chicago and during my brief stint at home over Thanksgiving. Also, lucky for me, I’m headed back to Charleston this weekend for a little time with OLD friends! Miss them SO MUCH!

3) Do yoga.Hmmm. Yea. I’ve done yoga… zero times in November. More about this on December goals. #epicfail


And now we turn to my goals for the month of December! Here’s what I have going on this month so you can see how my goals will work into it: weekend in Charleston for my friend’s wedding, then 2 weeks of finals and writing my 25-page seminar paper, home for Christmas on the 22nd, and then home for the rest of the month!


1. Focus on SCHOOL. This one is kind of obvious, but it’s really important right now! I’ve been avoiding school work like the plague and I need to just sit down and get cracking. I think subconsciously if I ignore schoolwork then graduation isn’t really happening? I don’t know, but I need to put some serious time towards school this month!

2. Do YOGA! Haha sound repetitive? Well it is. At least I’ve already been to yoga once this month, right? I know that yoga will help me avoid injury in the future so I really need to get back to it. I just wish I had oodles of money so I could get a membership at Core Power Yoga here! Along with doing yoga, I want to keep up with all the exercises my physical therapist has me doing, I do them probably every other day… I need to do them EVERY day, and maybe even twice since they’re strenuous. I’m seeing a wake up/bedtime routine in the works…

3. Take a step back from exercise. After talking with some friends over the weekend and doing some thinking about it myself, I’ve decided to take a much more relaxed approach to working out over the month of December. I think my body is just crying for a break.

My goal is to keep up strength training and yoga, but take a step back from high intensity cardio. For example, on bootcamp workouts if it says tabata workout + cardio sprints, I might just do an easy 20 minutes on the elliptical or a walk instead. And I’m hoping to do 2 rest days a week instead of 1, or at least a much more laid back day, like just walking or easy yoga.

I really need to remove some stressors from my life and the pressure to keep up an intense exercise routine is just not one that I need right now.


I also found another great way to help de-stress: COLORING!

Friday I went to target and picked up a bunch of crayons and some paper. It’s really therapeutic just to sit and doodle. I was a very creative child and took art classes as an after-school activity for many years growing up. Since moving to Chicago I haven’t done much art work (my blog is my creative outlet) so it’s nice to do this, even just for fun!
