In a Slump

I'm not sure if it's the time change, the fact that it now is dark when I leave for work in the morning and dark when I leave at the end of the day, or if I'm still a bit sluggish from all the pie I ate over the Thanksgiving weekend, but I have sure been feeling like I'm in a bit of a slump this past month. Heck, maybe it's even the chilly weather we've been having, which is nothing like my family and friends have been enjoying in the great white north, but is still chilly for this area. A couple days is good, but weeks of this? Come on. Give me sunshine and 60 degree days! It's why I moved south! 

Moving on...

To sum it up, I kind of feel like this guy:

In fact, that's almost a spitting image, besides the fur of course.  Good times.  So there you have it, I am in full-on slug mode.  Maybe I need a good workout or to go for a run to snap out of it. Maybe a new goal or challenge to achieve this month. Or maybe I should just relax, enjoy a few more days of sloth and then get back on the to-do list/goal-oriented/challenge-filled bandwagon. Yes, that sounds good.  Time for eggnog.

Weekend Update and December Goals

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend! Brian and I enjoyed ourselves and kept it pretty low key around here.  We had a nice turkey dinner with all the fixins and way too much pie...I swear I ate my weight in French silk and pumpkin pie while watching football.  The rest of the weekend was spent catching up on tv shows, watching a movie or two, putting up Christmas decorations and getting our tree.  Today, I spent most of my day watching episodes of Boardwalk Empire and reading. Got to soak up these last few hours of leisure time before another work week starts up again.

As for December goals, they are very similar to November's goals, seeing as I didn't put much effort into those at all.  So, December looks like this:

  1. Read 3 books.
     2.  Exercise 3 days a week for at least an hour. I would like to           
 push for 4 days a week, but with 3 days of swim classes, it can get to be a bit much.

     3.  Visit a new place in the Charlotte or surrounding area.  Show my family around the Charlotte area when they visit for Christmas.

     4.  Make 2 new recipes.

     5.  A new 30 day challenge?

Keeping it simple for December since there is so much craziness with the holidays coming up and I have a feeling this month is going to fly by just like November did (no wonder I didn't accomplish much)! 

Until next time...
