I can't believe its November already!!! October really went by!!! This month I'm really gonna hit the gym even that much more since we only have 2 months left of 2012!!!! So I plan on being in pretty good shape, and slimmer by the end of this year. Its my goal!!! I'm also looking forward to shopping on Black Friday at the end of the month!!!

So what plans does everyone have this month?

Anyone else do the Black Friday shopping?

With your goal to be slimmer, don't forget to consider what you're eating.  Exercising is great, but it does no good if you're putting unhealthy foods into your mouth all day.  There is always room to make healthier changes in ones diet.

As for Black Friday I'm not planning on shopping as of right now.  What I've noticed the last few years is that many stores had better sales the week before or after Black Friday so there was just no need to join the shopping rush on that day.  There are still tons of things I need to revamp and expand my wardrobe, but I'll be carefully tracking sales and coupon hunting.  This year I've done 3 major shopping trips and I need to do at least 1 more to add some winter items.  All that shopping is creating enough anxiety that there is just no need to throw Black Friday anxiety in the mix lol.

Other than that this month will be filled with school work, regular work, volunteer projects, and stress management.  I'm hoping to add a seasonal gig to my schedule to boost my coffers a bit, so we'll see how that works out.

I've backed off Starbucks, Silk and junk food. That part alone had been a big help!!! My mom used to be a health nut, so I know all about that, but thanks for the encouragement!!! Its a little extra shot in the arm!!!! I like shopping on Black Friday and then the weekend after BF as well. I've gotten some pretty good deals on BF. I just go to the mall because then I have everything covered and I don't have to keep getting out and having the pain of finding a park spot and so forth!!! I plan on going to the gym more this month and really eatting healthy because I know when BF comes I won't be too much.
