Monday Monthly Goals

Instead of Monday Mini-Goals I’m doing my November Goals:

1. Intuitive Eating – only eat when hungry, pay closer attention to fullness and night time eating

2. Get 8 hours of sleep (this helps with #1 soooo much)

3. Jillian’s 30 Day Shred Challenge

4. Get organized: Bills, Blog, Personal – all of it will be organized by Nov. 3oth!

5. No gum. This might be the one that kills me.

This morning started off with a small bowl of cereal and a 5.8 mile run. Then, I tried a packet of the infamous Jay Robb’s protein powder. IMG_3041

It made my smoothie a little clumpy (which I hate) but the flavor was dee-lish. IMG_3038

Plus PB&PB toast on the side :)IMG_3037

Ben put our new bed together this weekend. We didn’t move our super old bed from MD to CA so we were completely without. Now all we need is a mattress. And sheets. And a nightstand…IMG_3039 Today is Mexican Meatless Monday and I have a super fun recipe planned!

See ya later :)

Question: What are your November or Monday Mini-Goals?

    Ugh, I cut back the gum habit earlier this year. It’s a lot easier now….famous last words.

    Where did you get your bed frame, I love the super clean design.

  2. says

    Great goals! sleep is one of my number one goals especially because it helps me eat healthier, be less bitchy and focus during the day. I just need more hours in the day!

  3. says

    I used to be a gum addict, but I started reacting really badly to fake sugars. I haven’t had a single piece of gum since March and, surprisingly, I don’t really miss it at all!

    I do carry around toothpaste and a toothbrush in my purse now, though. 😉

  4. Maren says

    Hey, the frame is a start! :) omg I went w/o gum for like two weeks once…and it was so hard! I am seriously addicted. My two goals for the month are (1) track my I can learn to budget!! and (2) NO candy. This means candy bars too, but I can still have other desserts…I’ve just noticed this huge desire for candy lately…and that needs to be put to a halt…we’ll see how long that lasts!

    Good luck with your goals!!

  5. Jennifer says

    My main goal this month is to incorporate “group exercise classes” into my routine-my group might consist of just me, my husband, and my dog. That still counts, right?!?!?!

    Good luck with your goals…you can do anything you set your mind to.

  6. says

    The first of the month is always so exciting. I feel like I am starting over again. I love reading everyone’s goal. My goals are pretty similar… I love sleep, and every part of my life is better when I get my 8 hours in!

  7. says

    Lovely! I love your monthly goals! They look like mine! lol! ORGANIZATION! is my big one and eating only when hungry- thats the key! Love your blog :)

    I know you didn’t ask for help, but if you need help organizing bills, I find a breeze to use. And from there I know what “extra” cash I have and automate transfers across checking into savings :) easy peasy! I also know when checks are deposited into my account so it makes it easy to schedule auto payments.

    If you have non consistent income then mint is GREAT for tracking.

    I also keep a “green” calendar in google where all my “green” events are related to finances, so I have little notes on my calendar that show when the “closing date of credit card” is, when each paycheck is due to come in, gas, elec, cell, cable/internet, water, credit card payment due. I write the amounts in too for instance

    David Pay: $x,xxx.oo
    CC close date
    Wash Gas: $
    Amex: $

    I try to put the bill due dates about 3 days from their actual due date so that I’m not late – sometimes elec needs 3 days prior to due date etc.

    I hope this helps! I can send screen shots if you need more hlep :) let me know.

    I gave up gum! And I used to chew it all.the.time.

    You can do it. Once you get over the hump, you won’t even want it anymore. Hmmm – my goals are all about time management and productivity. (As I sit here reading and commenting on blogs.)

  10. says

    My monthly goals could be pretty similar to yours! Gum drives my stomach CRAZY but I always crave it! I definitely don’t eat well when I’m tired (this is especially bad when I’m travelling on weekends, etc), and I need to do my Shred more for strength training!

    Good luck!
