(Mid) November Goals


I've deemed this month No-Spend November. I was very free with my spending throughout the months of September and October, so it is time for me to get back on track this month. Cutting my spending translates in to two specific goals:
  • Bring my lunch to work 4 out of 5 weekdays.
  • No furniture purchases for the month of November.
So far I am doing pretty good on both goals. 

During the first week of November I brought my lunch 3/4 days (I didn't work on Monday). Week 2 went the opposite of well...The plan is to regain control this week. 

Also, I have been continuously furnishing my apartment (a post for another day) since moving down here, this month the goal is to be content with what I've got. As a reward I've told myself I can pick one thing for next month IF I don't buy anything this month.

My last goal for the month of November is to go to spin twice per week. Already very behind on this one... so we will see if putting it in writing here will give me some motivation.

I recently heard about a new indoor cycling studio that is going to be opening up in Dallas soon. It is called Zyn22. The location at The Shops at Park Lane is pretty perfect for me considering I have to drive past them on my way too and from work. Although their website doesn't give too much info regarding what to expect out of their classes, I am looking forward to giving it a try when it does open.

My hope is that putting these goals down on (virtual) paper will help keep me accountable... 

What goals do you have this month?


  1. Great goals love! So happy to see you back in the blogging world!!!

  2. I should have done this! I need a no spend november in my life… maybe i'll jump on that idea for the second half of the month!!


  3. Ditto Joey's comments. Love the goal's and the accountability.


Your comments make my day!
