Hello December: Ms. Tiff Looks Backward and Forward
Hello, December! Welcome! November was a great month. It was filled with San Diego, Thanksgiving and healthy, happy experiences. San Diego by far was the highlight of the month. It is beautiful. The people, the beaches, Balboa Park, the boardwalks, etc. It’s no surprise that San Diego is listed as the second most attractive locale (http://www.nbcsandiego.com/news/local/San-Diego-Most-Attractive-City-Travel-Leisure-283206391.html). Travel is so very important. To get out of your element, away from your every day problems and expand your view of the world is critical in maintaining a fresh and happy perspective. When you leave your environment and observe others living freely in another one, it serves as a great reminder that no matter how good or bad things are here you always have the option to build something new somewhere else. San Diego and Seattle are on the top of my list when I tire of the temperamental Texas weather. Saturday I was sweating underneath a beautiful blue sky and scorching sun when putting up Christmas lights. Today it’s nasty, rainy and cold. Go figure.
Now onto December. As I mentioned, the Christmas lights are already up. The tree has been picked out, cut down and upright in our dining room. The fridge calendar reflects the new month and the new plans - graduations, weddings, visits from family and Christmas! Not listed on the calendar are my monthly goals. Here they are below:
* Drop 10 pounds - 184 SW
* Strengthen my knees
* Save money
Luckily, strengthening my knees requires consistency in my workout regimen which will help in dropping the weight. All of the goals combine are to help make a successful Lake Tahoe trip in January. I think I can do it. AdvoCare has been so instrumental in extra income and helping me drop weight. I am confident that I can commit further achieve all of my goals.
What are your goals for the new month? It’s the last one of 2014. Make it count! Let’s do this!
