November Goals – How Did I Do?

Remember when I made some goals back at the beginning of November?

Well, here’s how I did on them:

Starbucks – I only had Starbucks a few times, and most were for good reason.  Once while I was visiting Anne in Denver and hung out in the Starbucks near her house for a few hours while she was at work.  And again when I met up with Katie from Peace, Love & Oats.  Besides that, I think I had Starbucks 2 other times – one Friday night when I went to Starbucks to hang out and read, and only once during the work week all month!  Woo for easily saving money!

Eating out for lunch during the workweek – Boom, saving even more money.  I didn’t eat out at all for lunch at work except for the last workday of the month – this past Wednesday.  I couldn’t help it.  I didn’t grocery shop for the week since it was a short week and I just didn’t have enough food to get me through all 3 days.  And in case you’re wondering what I had – Sopraffina’s.  People from work go there a lot but I never had, mainly because it is right across from Potbelly’s and Potbelly’s is always a winner.  But I’m glad i tried something new because the panini I had was really good – ham and Swiss on a pretzel bun :)

170 Twitter followers -I was at 167 followers at the end of the month, so not bad.  My ultimate goal is 200 by the end of the year, so I think I’m on track.

100 Facebook page followers – My blog’s Facebook page is up to 119 likes on Facebook!

500 unique visitors to my blog this month – I feel a little short on this – 468 unique visitors during the month, but I’m still pretty happy with that!  I’ve had a lot of new traffic, so I can’t really complain.  And I know to if I am patient and write good content, the readers will come.  But I’m happy for all the readers I already have :)  That’s way more than I expected to have when I started the blog!

Run 150 miles – I fell more than a little short on the running goal.  November ended with a total of 69 miles…less than half of my goal.  It was very hard to motivate myself most of the month given the cold temperatures and post-marathon laziness.

Weight training – I haven’t been specifically tracking my weight training, but I’ve been keeping it up pretty well!  And I’ve have started working in the planking too.

I think my November goals went pretty well.  As far as the running/weight training, I’m gonna call November a rebuilding month.  It’s hard to get going again now that the Chicago Marathon is over.  I did a really good job on not eating out/getting Starbucks during the week and am continuously increasing the blog traffic!  I hope my new design changes have helped :)

I’ve been working on the December goals and will have those up soon!  Let’s just say running more consistently is at the top of my list.

How was your November?

  1. Wow. 150 miles is quite a bit. Though I realize it’s only 3 miles per day. I’m not a big Starbucks fan but do like to eat out – that’s a habit I’m stopping!
