December 2012 Goals

Well, I figure I best at least address my goals before the world ends the day after tomorrow (12/12/12).  I can’t believe it’s already the tenth of the month.  Between a sick kid and some financial wackiness, December had sort of a rough start.  Further, I allowed myself to ride the wave of a little bit of uncharted calendar land.  I hold that it’s good to do that every now and again.  I may regret it when I dare step on the scale again, but for now, I think it was good to have a little break. 

So, now that December 2012 is one-third over, let me take a look back at November’s successes and shortcomings.

Wow!  So distracted.  I have been all over the internet instead of finishing this.  

I am feeling anxious about finishing out the year and what my goals might be for the year to come.  I am also acknowledging that the holidays can be kinda rough on me.  I am going to go easy on myself. 

Here’s what’s on tap for December:

– Writing everyday

– Finish that damn divorce book or put it away unfinished

– Open new bank account and initiate direct deposit

– D’s school calendar in my calendar

– 2 apple care lessons

– Start ipad

– D monthly pics in books

– Mail holiday presents (Hamiltons, Canyon, in-laws, marshalls)

– holiday card list

– make and mail holiday cards

– organize files

– schedule one two hour writing block per week

– five days a week of exercise

– write one piece about nutrition

– write one bj post

– two Tony walks

–  post October mothup

– 10 minutes focused D time every day

– three days of slim kicker food diary

– finish homemade holiday presents

– continue regular food diary

OK, that’s it for now.  Feels like a lot
