December Goals


First a recap of November's Goals. I did absolutely horrible last month. 

November Goals
Fitness and Health
  • Do exercise program minimum 3 times a week
  • Lose 5 lbs.  
  • Finish current challenges (squats, lunges, calf raises) 
I failed horribly on all three of these. To be honest, I didn't work out at all in November. 
 
Blog
  • Blog 3 times a week in this blog 
  • Comment on blogs as I read them, not saving them for later.  
I failed at posting on the blog. I did try to comment on others' blog posts as I read them.

Writing
  • Add 5 "prompt stories" or poems.
  • Finish NaNoWriMo. 
I failed at both of these too. NaNoWriMo is 50,000 words; I only wrote 2,000. That was on Day 1. After that not a word. I just didn't have the time for creative writing. 
 
Personal
  • Stay on top of my schoolwork (this is very important! My Masters program requires me to maintain a 3.0 GPA or be kicked out) 
  • Read 2 of the books on the ARC list (that I am behind on). 
I tried to stay on top of my schoolwork. My current GPA is a 3.84. I read 1 ARC book.

  • Add 5 movies to #23. 
  • Add 5 bands to #26.
  • Watch 1 movie for #22.
  • Buy 4  nail polish (#86).
I watched one movie for #23 of my 101/1001 list {The Purge: Anarchy}. I did complete buying 4 nail polish for the month.

Now, on to December. Hopefully I won't be such a slacker this month.
