My 2013 Holiday Goals

I've already written two posts this morning, but I wanted to post one more thing before I get too busy with my day and weekend. 

We are two weeks away from Thanksgiving.  And while I may think it's still a tad early the stores are beginning to hang Christmas decor and I've even heard Christmas music already in one store.  

Although I do love baking and sampling baked goods this time of year, it's the busy schedules that get me more off track than anything.  By off track I mean that I tend to kick exercise to the curb in lieu of needing more time to complete holiday tasks. 

Not this year.  I don't feel well when I skip exercise (this last month of hardly any exercise is proof).  And when I exercise I find it easier to stay better on track with my eating. 

So, in the spirit of all things party, holidays and fun…here are my goals for this 2013 holiday season: 

  • I will exercise 4-5 days a week.
  • I will maintain 160, and maybe even lose a few more pounds by January.
I think I'll check in on Mondays so that I can report on the week prior and let you know if I'm sticking to my goals.  

How about you?  Are you setting any goals for yourself during the holiday season?  I'd love to hear about it.  

Meanwhile…I may hang this on my fridge.  :)  


  1. Hi! I continue to plan on exercising every day, but do allow myself one day off each week, depending upon events for that week. I do at least 30 minutes of dancing each day, but try to push to 45 minutes (but don't feel guilty if I don't make it past 30.)

    As I started my diet/life-style change 1/1, and am within 8 pounds of a personal dream weight...I'm trying to drop as much still by 12/31 as I can, so I can say "I lost xx pounds in 2013!" I'm at 62 now...65 would be great, 70 even better. We'll see! :)

    Good luck!

    1. Thanks for sharing, Gwen! Good luck to you as well. :)

  2. My goals are to not gain weight. I am transitioning to more indoor exercise as the weather gets worse outside and I do find that a bit difficult, mostly because I miss biking and the trainer is not the same. I am going to shoot for 60 minutes of exercise most days, though, whatever I choose to do.
