I'm doing monthly updates on my New Year Goals.
Here we go with the 11th installment for 2011. I hope you guys don't mind these monthly posts, but it helps keep me from wandering off!
- Get through the month without stabbing anyone. Check. I ended up getting a sunrise alarm clock! Will report back on its effectiveness soon.
- Be consistent with my food tracking. I'm using Weight Loss Resources this month, at slowest rate of weight loss (½ pound per week). Check. Kinda. 50% success: I'd track Monday – Thursday then fizzle out over the weekend. But I lost 2 pounds so I met the weight loss target and though slow, it felt sustainable.
Other November highlights:
- Finishing NaNoWriMo! Ten years after the first effort, it was good fun spewing out 50,000 words of utter bollocks.
- I have something on every day until Christmas, so the aim is to enjoy the remaining festivities but not go crazy with it. The first 10 days of December have been overly indulgent (why did my boss have to make the world's most delicious stollen? I normally hate anything marzipanish but this was bloody amazing). I want to finish 2011 feeling positive, dagnabbit, rather than being a sugar zombie. Woohoo!
December highlight so far: Edinburgh Santa Run (Walk )
