November Goals

Happy November! What?! Yes NOVEMBER! Meaning we have 2 full months left in this year. Nuts. I hope everyone had a great October. We did! It’s finally feeling more like fall, and I’m thrilled about it. Time to share my November Goals and share what all I did in October!

November Goals

In October I wanted to…

  • Read 4 books: I read 2 but better than nothing!
  • Enjoy Halloween with Liam and Andrew: His first Halloween was great! It rained so we only went to a couple of houses, BUT he looked cute in his costume and we got some great pics!
  • Take Liam to a pumpkin patch and the Arboretum: We went pumpkin shopping and we went to the pumpkin village/pumpkin patch at the Arboretum.
  • Keep up with workouts: Yes loved all my workouts this month.
  • Really focus on drinking more water: Getting better but not as much as I want.
  • Work on Twitter growth: I did but not as much as I wanted.
  • Get blog posts written and scheduled for November: About half way.
  • Spend some time with my mom: Yes! It was lovely.
  • Have 2 date nights with Andrew (it’s our wedding anniversary this month!) We did! We found two amazing babysitters and we love having them!

In November I want to…

  • Read 3 books
  • Decorate for the holidays
  • Have two date nights with Andrew
  • Start Christmas shopping
  • Enjoy Liam’s first Thanksgiving and take a family photo
  • Get holiday cards ordered and mailed by Thanksgiving
  • Work on Twitter growth
  • Continue to be better about water
  • Try one new workout class
  • Finish blog posts for November and get most of December scheduled
  • Enjoy more family time

What are some of your goals for this month?

    My goal is to start and FINISH my Christmas shopping by Thanksgiving. I usually do, so I don’t see why it would be any different this year ๐Ÿ™‚

    DECORATING!!! YESSSS!!!! <3 I don't really think we will because we tend to travel for the holidays and it's super sad when you come back from all the travel (after the holidays) yet still see decorations up… Because I tend to really miss all the festivities! HAPPY NOVEMBER!

  5. Drinking water seems so much harder this time of year. When it’s hot it seems more natural. Now that it’s cooled off I just want coffee.

    Love the idea of a monthly target. I used to just do the Resolutions for the whole year, but this year I broke them down to monthly to dos. SO much more gets done, more achievements even if I don’t hit the full target. Great lists by the way.

    You have some great goals for November! I’m hoping to complete yoga every single day of the month. It may get a bit challenging, but seeing as an at-home practice is part of the requirements for my yoga teacher training, I think there’s a good chance I’ll be able to complete it!

    What was Liam dressed up as for Halloween?

  11. I am bound and determined to get ahead of my Christmas shopping this year! I also want to take some photos for Christmas cards (which hasn’t happened in years). But I’m optimistic this year it will happen!

    Great job on your goals last month! We didn’t go to any of the nearby pumpkin patches this year. There’s still plenty of time though!

    Writing down goals is a great way to keep yourself accountable. I love that you accomplished so much and that even if something didn’t quite get done, you have adjusted for the new month. Happy November!

  24. Those are some legit goals. It would do me well to try and set up some of the same ones. And I would literally blow my own mind if I get schedule posts an ENTIRE MONTH in advance. HOW DO PEOPLE DO THIS?!
