I was looking back over the numbers and it appears that November was one of my worst months throughout my journey. I know we had a lot going on with Mr. Bill's declining health and also with family coming in and then of course, Thanksgiving. But, as of right now, I'm determined to make December much, much better. We had loads of eating out and many days where exercise was just non-existent.
In looking at everything, it seems like all I did the entire month was gain and lose the same amount of weight. In fact, I'm at a +.8 which, I think, is the first time I've gained and not lost at least some since I started a year ago.
The weight loss has started to stall again and it just seems like all my body wants to do is hold onto this fat. I am so so close to losing 60 pounds that I will make that my ultimate goal this month. As of last Wednesday's weigh in, I need to lose 2.6 more pounds. Since everything has completely stalled out I'm hoping that goal will be attainable.
I've also decided (in talking with some friends) and especially since my Plantar Faciitis isn't completely healed yet, that I better back down on my running streak. I may pick it back up again next year when I'm *hopefully* closer to or at my goal weight.
Now for the December plans/goals:
1. Lose 2.6 pounds
2. 1800 exercise minutes
3. Run 3 times a week
4. Possibly sign up for the Gingerbread jog 5K
Easy peasy?! I hope so.
We've got a pretty busy day planned. I'm currently working out our grocery list and meal plans for the week and then off to knock that out. Chris and I have a court ressie for 12 noon to practice. And then in between is just a little house cleaning and some laundry. Thankfully I did most of it on Friday so there isn't that much to do. And if I have time, I'd like to put some Christmas decorations up. We need a new tree, because, well cats.... and I need a new outdoor wreath. Last years heat wave and the fact that my house faces to the east in the afternoon, had the sun pelting down on my old wreath and it completely faded. Not sure if we will get the tree up today or not. (It depends on how expensive they are). And then of course tonight is the mid-season finale. I hate the lull on Sunday nights after TWD ends and before Game of Thrones begin.

What are your plans for December? Do you have any concrete goals?
