November Recap and December Goals

I ended the month sick and at 212.4 pounds.  I lost 10.3 pounds in November!  Yes!  The running is doing me good.  I exercised about 1300 minutes in November, which was considerably less than October.  Savannah was sick the week before Thanksgiving, and since I usually do most of my exercise during the day when she is at school, and she was home, my week was thrown off a bit.  At the end of the week, I was feeling pretty run down myself and so I skipped a couple of workouts.  Taking care of a sick little one who only wants snuggles all night and doesn’t sleep really takes a toll!

I exercised right up until Thanksgiving day and even did my own “Turkey Trot” on Thanksgiving day, a quick 3 miler around Lake Mission Viejo.  But I should have known something was up.  I wasn’t hungry all day, only had one plate of food on Thanksgiving, and sure enough, that evening I knew I had a fever.  I went out in the morning to shop (Black Friday) but only went to 2 stores and had to come home and rest.  I lost my voice.  And by Saturday I was absolutely miserable.  I had to have Bryan drive me to urgent care to get a prescription for antibiotics.  I laid in bed for 2 more days and then I had to rouse myself to go back to work.  I wasn’t quite ready, and here it is a week later and I am still not 100%.  I have returned to the gym but not with the same intensity. 

On to my December goals.  My exercise minutes goal is 1000 minutes.  I plan to run 35 miles in December.  My weight goal is to maintain my weight until January 1.  If I lose weight it will be a bonus.

I ran 35 miles in November as well.  I did a challenge with my step-brother, his wife, and their friend.  I freakin smoked them in that challenge, which was to see who could run 25 miles the fastest.  I got nervous because I skipped 3 of my regular runs but I still finished it first!

I have lots of yummy food posts but I just need to find the time to upload all the pictures and the recipes.  With Christmas being so close, I have been working my fingers to the bone at night making handmade gifts for people that there is not much extra time for blogging!!!
