It’s the last month of the year and I am so excited because I’ve decided to do a “December goals” post. But why now? Why make goals for the last month of the year? Simply put, I want to set myself up early for success in 2017. I’m not interested in the “new year, new me” slogan. I’m more interested in starting my success in the last month of 2016 and bringing that over into the New Year for more success to come.
All this talk of “December goals” and we actually haven’t discussed what they are going to be, and more importantly, why I chose these specific goals.
Lets get started…
1) Running everyday at least a mile (except weekends):
Why: I’ve seriously been slacking on running. I mean slacking, there’s no other way to get around it. And if I am trying to run next year as much as I did in 2015, then I need to get myself in order from now.
2) Drinking two bottles of 32oz of water daily:
Why: I have also been slacking on water and sadly picked up drinking soda every once in awhile. In turn, my body does feel different, a little less moisturized and a lot drier than I remembered, and also, who wants dry skin?
3) Lose 10 pounds:
Why: I mean who doesn’t want or need to lose 10 pounds, right? Like I said, this is only the beginning to kick-start what my goals are for next year. It’s not hard at all to lose 10 pounds in a month, so why not get started this month?
4) Blog at least six times this month:
Why: I’ve also been slacking on blogging and connecting with the blogging community. Blogging is something I love doing and a hobby of mine and I just let it fall by the wayside. Blogging six times this month is only going to gear me up and keep me on track for next month and year when I want to increase my traffic to what it once was.
These are all my goals for December, small but attainable. I truly believe goals are a great way to keep a person on track and can be used as a gentle reminder if you ever forget what it is you’re trying to achieve. Next year I will set even more challenging goals as well as keeping in mind what I am trying to accomplish for 2017.
Until next time beauties.
