November Review / December Plan

It's December 1st already, time to start a new month of tracking, but I don't want to lose my record of November, so I'm posting it here. Seems like a good time for a review/summary.

I didn't have a specific plan for November, I decided it would be fun to open up my exercise schedule to include anything and everything. Part way through, I decided to see if I could get through the month without repeating a DVD.

I have quite a DVD collection - I can never resist perusing exercise DVDs and often find new ones that I think look interesting. Lately I haven't been using them as much since I have been setting specific workout plans. When I do decide to pull out a DVD, I have a tendency to gravitate towards favorites. My little "no repeats" challenge forced me to pull out some DVDs that I haven't done as often, which also helped me to identify some areas that need work. So I think it was a good month.

I think for December I will continue on with my DVD-palooza, and try to concentrate on some of the DVDs that I haven't used as much in the past. I may also try to throw in some of Sagan's 100 rep challenges, time permitting; we'll have to wait and see how it goes.

Oooh, DVDs I don't have yet!
Taking notes

Glad I'm not the only one with an extensive collection :)

Merry - DVDs are great...You get to choose your class and do it in the comfort of your own home. It's a good thing.

Sagan said...

WOW you worked hard in November!

Thanks for the shoutout:) I'm excited for the challenge.

the Bag Lady said...

I second Sagan's remark - you DID work out hard in November! Good for you!

JavaChick said...

Thanks Sagan & Bag Lady. I think it was a pretty average month, but I don't often see it all listed together like that. I think I like keeping a list - gives me a nice feeling of accomplishment.

I definitely concur about you working your butt off last month! Wow! You must be made of steel by now. :D

OH... those snow vs. no snow pics are funny. We have been going through a repeat of those continuously here! lol That is why I wish it would just dump and be done with. :)

JavaChick said...

Thanks Gracie & Candlerun...Hoping to have a good December as well, but past experience tells me that there will be a decline toward the end of the month...Ah well, what can you do?

GOOD WORK for the month of November!!!

Sometimes we so easily forget the hardwork we've done, I think it's a great idea to keep track of all our accomplishments.

Keep up the work for this month!
