November Goals

I kind of skipped the month of October in terms of setting goals.  I figured finished my marathon was an accomplishment enough - I really just wanted to get through that.  The month just few by anyways and I'm not sure where the rest of the month went, but I have been putting a lot of thought into my November goals.  A lot of them will be continued from my September goals, but now that I am not running like a maniac I feel like I will be able to make them more of a priority.  I also want to be better about keeping myself accountable and actually keep track of whether I am achieving these goals.  So I am going to try keep better track - check lists - spreadsheets - whatever it takes to not miss a day.

I actually started the Advocare 24 day challenge on October 27 which has really helped reset my diet after basically eating anything in sight while training for the marathon. So a few goals of mine this month will be following that plan in more detail.  I haven't decided whether I will post my results in any way from the challenge, but I will probably at least do a review of what I thought of it.  I have done the 10 day cleanse before so this will be even more of a challenge to stick to it for much longer.

#1 FLEXIBILITY - This is such a long term goal of mine, but I am really going to try this month to keep myself accountable.  Running those long distances for the marathon really tightened my legs and it is now to the point where it is a constant distraction and something will even wake me up at night.  I would love to shoot for at least 10 minutes a day of stretching.  I think I am even going to print out a calendar just to check off whether I have stretching yet.

#2 STRENGTH - I am so ready to do something other than running. This month I am going to make lifting more of a priority than cardio.  I am just hoping to tone up and make working out fun again. I am going to try to do two days of upper body and two days of lower body per week. I am also going to keep track of this on a calendar - the same way that I used to track my running.  So stay tuned during my weekly workout recaps to keep my accountable!

#3 BLOGGING - I admit - this blog needs work.  More pictures. More creative blog posts.  And everything in between.  I want to keep my staples of fashion fridays, workout recaps and weekend recaps, but I would love to add some more creative posts.  November will be the month for that. So I am open to suggestions!  What do you want to read more about?!  Food? Life happenings?  More specific workouts?

#4 SOCIAL - Be better about connecting with old friends.  I have been so busy with life and work.  We always seem to be going somewhere on the weekends and my weeks have been crazy with work lately.  It is so easy to get caught up with my routine.  I want to make more of an effort to connect and even if it is just through text message.

#5 DIET - I think this one if a given since I have doing this 24 day Advocare challenge. I will update more on this later so I won't get into as much detail, but I am really making an effort to clean up my diet and eliminate a lot of things.

Wish me luck! I'm hoping for a great November!

Oh and Happy Halloween tomorrow!
