December Health & Fitness Goals

This is the last month of the year and I plan on making it a good one.  December is always a time for me to reflect on the year past and work on making improvements for the next year.  I usually do this in a very informal way.  Maybe I'll grab a notebook and write a few things down or I'll put it in my notes app on my phone while waiting in line or something.  But this year it will be different. This year it will be intentional.  I've already scheduled a day for the hubs and I to sit down and talk about 2015 goals.  Everything from finances, vacations, business, and health is on the agenda.  2015 will be my year to organize and make things happen!  Who's with me?!?! 

On to my recap....October was such a good month for me reaching my goals, I really set the bar high for November thinking I could keep it going and really I should have.  But, life happens and I still have a hard time staying focused and disciplined on vacation.  I only ran 3.5 miles that week and that really put me behind on my goal for 60 miles.  I tried hard to make it up that last week in Nov, but I came short 7 miles.  53 miles isn't so bad, right?  Again, that trip to Texas got in the way and I ended up gaining 3 of the 4 pounds I lost in Oct.  Boo...but, I worked hard and lost them when I got back so, I'm back where I was in October, but not where I want to be yet!  The 12K trail race went great and I was really happy with my time.  You can read the full recap HERE ;) And extra core work, well, yea, that didn't happen.

For December I really, really, want to lose those elusive 3 lbs.  Like for real, I have to!! No excuses.  I'll be training hard for the Spartan Beast & Sprint coming up in January and running will help me a ton. I did lower the milage, though, because I know it's going to be a busy month and we'll be going away for a weekend too.  300 burpess? Why not, bring it on!

What are some of your goals for December?  Are you taking it easy this last month of the year or are you gonna end 2014 with a bang?
