Monthly Goals, November 2016

I typically try to share/recap my goals within the first couple days of the month, but that doesn’t always work out. However, I did manage to take a look at how I did and plan some new things for the month of November. Today I am finally going to share those with you.

Monthly Goals, November 2016

october
Let’s take a look at what I completed…

* Host or Co-host a giveaway
* Start working on updating my About Me page
* New head-shot
* Work on our fall bucket list
* Attend the Hot Rod Reunion
* Have a movie night
* 4 workouts a week 
* Find some new workouts to try
* Work with the girls in their AWANA books

* Attend small group
* Continue having the week prepped on Sundays
* Get out of the house with our school work once
* Try 4 new recipes
* Use a one photo a day app

* Decorate for Halloween
Pick out Halloween costumes
* Sort through the tubs of kids clothes in the attic
* Doodle at least two chalk boards

And what I didn’t …

* Eat more protein
* Find a daily devotion and do it
* Work with Marissa on memorizing multiplication facts

I failed at consistency on all of these. I was SO close to a completed list y’all. I just couldn’t bring myself to cross them off. 

All in all I am pretty happy with how October went. I ended up getting a lot more done in some areas than I expected, which is probably why other areas suffered a bit. I still feel like I did a good job of staying balanced, especially with the busyness that the last couple weeks of the month brought.

    You totally rocked October! I’d say only having 3 goals that you didn’t meet is a huge accomplishment. I love your goals for November. You can do it. 🙂

    • I just wish one time I could cross all my dang goals off :P. I’ve been setting goals for like 2 years now (almost) and it has yet to happen.

  • Amy Smith

    October was so successful! Way to rock it mama! Let me know if you find a good one picture a day app. You better make sure that girls night is once a week. 😉

    • I really like 1 second everyday. I just need to be better about using it on the actual day. Check it out and let me know what you think. Dude, we totally need to we have SUCKED at having girls nights and once the baby is here…. well, I guess we could still have girl nights with all 3 of us :P.

  • Meghan Flinn

    You killed it in October… Way to go! And I feel like November is all about planning. Making sure I do what I can to prepare for Christmas (otherwise known as all of December) so I can enjoy it when it arrives!

    • I totally do too. I actually really need to start writing things down. I have A LOT planned already and our bucket list made, but I need to prepare advent stuff and I need to plan all the little things.

  • Lizzie Simantz

    I am so impressed with how much you accomplished in October!! I usually give myself like 3-4 goals a month, LOL! November looks like another great month!

    • Lol! I think you have the right idea. Most of my goals are usually things that I usually do, I just want to make sure I do them. Sometimes it feels like a lot when I write it all down but I try to let things happen organically. Does that make sense. 95% of the time I don’t force something to be done just for the sake of crossing it off. That is probably why I never complete a goal list. Baha ha!

  • You got so much done in October!! You rock! You’re November plans seem pretty solid too. Will you share if you find a devotion you like?? I’ve been looking, but just can’t seem to find anything.

    • If I find anything I love I will totally share it with you friend.

  • No kidding, did you ever get lots done in October!

    • It was a pretty full month. Now all I can think of is fala la la la!

  • Wow, you did so well on your October goals! Great job!

  • Great job on those October goals! Lots of protein is hard to squeeze in! November looks like it’s going to be a good one, girlie!!

    • It is the WORST! I have a protein shake on lift days and egg whites at breakfast then things just kind of go down hill. Bleh.

  • You did such a great job on your October goals! Almost all of them completed, color me impressed.

    • Someday, someday I will finish all of my goals.

  • Girl, look at all that you accomplished!! That is incredible! And may I say that I ADORE your new look!! That header is gorgeous! Love love love!

    • Aaaahhhh thank you so much! I was sick and tired of the old theme. I didn’t love the header and found myself going around my landing page. This is the perfect balance. Plus I can change things out really easily to make them more colorful without things feeling like a total redesign. I love it.

  • Desiree @ Macke Monologues

    Your October was awesome!!! Holy smokes, you accomplished a ton!
    And, I know of one pretty sweet giveaway that’s coming up in November. 🙂

    • Me too. OMG making that Rafflecopter was the worst, ever. I have never made one for that large of a giveaway and I kind of wanted to poke my eyes out so kudos to people who put those together all the time!

  • Heather Bramlett

    Holy Moly…you accomplished a lot! Way to go! Love the new look! I know you will do even better in November!! I read Girlfriends and God every morning and love it!! It gets sent to my inbox every morning! 🙂

    • Thank you SO much. For the sweet words and the recommendation. I am totally off to check that out right now! To my inbox is JUST what I need.

  • For not completing your list you sure accomplished A LOT! I know youll be proud of me on this- this year Im so looking forward to Christmas!!

    • I AM proud of you. My girls were having a Christmas caroling dance party last night… so yeah. Excitement is off the charts around here.

      • My friend and I went to Michaels last night- totally put me in the Christmas spirit!

  • Yes, for trying two new recipes….other than that I’m not good on goals. Two of my September goals (yes, two months ago) were to read a book (I’m still on page 20), and paint my toe nails (hey, I’m not ambitious), and I just took the polish off last Saturday…I still haven’t managed to paint them. Can you call me every morning and keep me on task, please???

    • Oh Emily you always make me laugh. Just send me your number and I’ll call you when I wake up everyday at 4:45. Baha ha ha!

  • Thanks for linking up! Ahhh I really want to find a good devotional as well- let me know if you find one!

    • I almost forgot to actually link up! I will definitely keep you posted!

  • Christmas shopping. I just can’t. I don’t know, maybe Santa can just give the kids money this year… You go girl!

    • Not even after Thanksgiving?!?! You know Thanksgiving IS this month right, HA! But hey, I always wanted money when I was older than 10.

  • chall1018

    Loving the new look around here! That profile picture of you? GORGEOUS friend! Girl, you crushed October!! Way to go! I am going to try this goal thing again in 2017 and see if I can keep it up!

    • Thank you so very, very much friend. You totally should I’ve been doing goal posts for two years now and LOVING them.

  • You rocked your goals!! Way to go! I already have some Christmas shopping done. Now to keep the things hidden!

    • Lol! That is ALWAYS the biggest problem, always.

  • For a daily devotion pick up Savor by Shauna Niequest (or something like that).
