Holy Cow, it's November?!

Weren't we just celebrating the start of September and fall? Now it's November. I can hardly believe how quickly this year is flying by! Does anyone else feel this way? An even bigger shock for me was catching the sight of wreaths in the windows of a store this weekend. I guess the last 10 weeks of 2010 are quickly approaching. Yikes!

One of the great things about having a blog is being able to reference it to see what I was thinking and doing earlier in the year. It's like a journal of sorts. Anyways, early this morning I referenced my new year's resolutions from January out of curiosity. Now that it's November, how am I doing?

This is what I wrote: "I am focusing more attention on how to be a better me in a new decade - mentality, physically, socially, and personally.
While I haven't vowed to "lost 10 pounds" or "cut out all sugar in my diet" this year, I think that I've subconsciously resolved to try to move to a healthier balance and devote some brainpower to other areas of my life. It's a bit scary because I can't check those goals off on a list in the same way. But just like being able to balance well on both sides of a yoga stance, I think that focusing on this other half will help me strike an overall healthier balance in 2010."

Balance. A holistically healthy me. Health outside of fitness. And that's really what I feel like this year has been about for me so far.
So, in continuing to strive for an all around healthier me, I have put together a few goals for November. A few of them I'll be sharing now and a couple of them will stay off of the internet and personal for now ;-)

My November goals:
  • Run the Dallas Turkey Trot 5K in under 40 minutes
  • Try yoga after a 6 month hiatus and do it or pilates 1x per week
  • Try 3 new recipes this month
  • Unplug by 10:30pm on week nights
  • Enhance the content here on my blog and make a few exciting updates
While a lot of these are fitness related, there are others offline that are completely unrelated. I also think that unplugging will help me achieve all of my goals and make smart decisions throughout the holiday months :) Here's to a great month - I'm definitely excited for my favorite November weekend: Thanksgiving!!

What are your November goals? What would you like to see more / less of here on the Gluten Free Grazer?


  1. I did not stick to many of my goals, but always great to try again! I plan to do more yoga too!

  2. I love your blog so I don't have any improvement suggestions :) I need to start unplugging earlier as well. Let me know if you try any week-new-student-discounted-yoga passes and maybe I can join you!
