If you’re an Obama fan, congrats on four more years! I ended up voting for Gary Johnson, and while Obama wasn’t my 2nd choice (Jill Stein was), at least we didn’t get Romney. If you’re a Romney fan… I’m sorry, I hope you are not offended.
It turns out that my India trip has been postponed until December (due to the hurricane, most offices were closed for a week we didn’t get all the paperwork in time), so this means that I can update my November goals and do more yoga.
November Goals Update
Go to 15 25 yoga classes this month. I am upping the ante – I want to do some doubles and I want to get in a lot of hot yoga. Unfortunately I have only gotten to 3 so far so I really have my work cut out for me here. I went to hot yoga this morning at 8:30am before work and I did 2 classes last week (Thursday and Friday).
Floss once a day (night). –> So far so good.
Try 3 new restaurants.
Try 3 new dishes at restaurants I already go to. I know I have gotten at least one. I will have to go look at my Mint.com account and see if I completed it yet. (Love Mint for keeping track of expenses.)
Go to a yoga class on my business trip (to… India! More later.).
Stay healthyduring holiday/family gatherings in November. This is the bread v. wine v. dessert choice. Unfortunately I have been very lax with my eating habits lately… I am looking forward to turning them around for the better for the rest of November. I think I’m going to go with Biz’s goal of only fruits and veggies after dinner.
Test and then make a new recipe for Thanksgiving dinner (this year it’s sort of potluck-style). The pot-luck is postponed so this might be off the table.
Read 2 books. I’m in the middle of New York , a novel by Edward Rutherfurd. It’s reallllly long! Almost 900 pages I think. Very good. When I finish I need to pick another one.
Another thing I can cross off my list is getting vaccinations. I have been meaning to get caught up on my shots for… oh, a good 10 years. Well, I finally got up the guts to do it because I had to get them done for India. I had 4 actual needle shots and 1 oral vaccine for typhoid. The shots didn’t hurt nearly as bad as I expected, but my arm is sore from the tetanus one. I think that is a common side effect.
Anyway… that’s what my November is looking like so far. Also wanted to share an inspirational picture/list that Bobby sent me today.
