December!

Happy December! Now it is officially time to get out the Christmas lights and start shopping! This morning I started by decorating my office with a poinsettia! It definitely adds a little something to my otherwise bland desk.


I also received this cute little catalog in the mail the other day. I just love the Christmas charms Tiffany & Co. came out with this year...if only they weren't insanely expensive. This reminds me it is time to start making my Christmas list!


In the style of Lacey, I decided I would make some goals for December to help me stay on track with my stretching and lifting.

December Goals:

1. Stair Climber for 30 minutes - Previously this hurt too much with my knee and honestly I have been afraid to try it again. Once I am pain free I hope I can try it again.
2. Start running again by Christmas - This really all depends on my PT and since I have another appointment tomorrow I am hoping for some good news! I am still on a running hiatus and I am feeling good.
3. Lift 2x a week - I have been doing this and I want to continue. I can already see the difference.
4. Stretch every day - I already do this as well and I can actually touch my toes now! Only took me two months of consistently stretching but it is worth it!

And as I type this, a co-worker just informed me that it is snowing outside. If I look back to my post from this EXACT day last year, it snowed as well! It really is December!

Have a great Wednesday!

Yay December! Our accountant at work always brings a poinsettia for all the ladies at work and I was so excited to find mine today to brighten up my desk! Sadly, no decorating at home yet... we are painting our main floor next weekend. (BAD PLANNING)

Awesome goals... 30 mins on the stairmonster is INSANE but so satisfying once you're done.

Love the poinsettia! What a great way to perk up your office space. :)

Those are great goals! My goal for this month is to not let the holiday eating get ooc and to make sure i get 3-4 work outs in each week. November was a very lazy month for me so I need to get back on track now!

I am not a huge fan of Tiffany but that Poinsetta is BEAUTIFUL!!!

Molly said...

fingers crossed that you can run by Christmas, those charms are so cute!

The Hungry Runner Girl said...

Awesome goals. I hope so so badly that you can run by Christmas. The stair climber= love/hate relationship. I need to stretch more too!
Gotta love Tiffany's Christmas charms.

Kim said...

I've gotten some fantastic Tiffany knockoffs from evesaddiction.com, so that is an option if you don't want to spend too much!

The Hungry Runner Girl said...

Hopefully you get your pizza next week:) I agree sausage is gross!

Katie A. said...

Anyone who can do 30mins on the stairmaster is a rockstar! Great goals for December, I hope PT starts working soon!
And I'm jealous of your snow! Well, I like snow for snowboarding, but not running! LOL!
Have a great weekend!
