Last Chance Victories 2011

I have been at a loss since my beloved laptop shit the bed but my nifty little netbook just arrived  to take it's place.  It's really small and light and the keyboard is just the right size for my small hands, though my right pinkie is still getting used to the positioning shift button.  I think it will be just the thing to get my blogging back on a more regular basis.

Can you believe it's December 1st?  Has 2011 been a good year for you?  For us it has been uneven, to say the least.  It's been a year of changes and though it's taken some time for me to digest all the changes, I am hoping end the year on a high note. Although I'll be ending the year slightly heavier than I had intended,  I will NOT allow December go out in a blur of food, wine and laying around watching reruns.  

Since the end of September, I have been doing great with getting to the gym for weight lifting on a regular basis and feeling so much stronger for it as well as getting out and walking.  We're just about a month out from our cruise, I'm going to take on the 28-Day Shapeover weight lifting program that I did early in the year.  It is the perfect last chance victory to make sure my new black dress for New Year's Eve will look fabulous. 

Other than making sure I eat healthy, sleep well and get in my daily fitness, I'm going to make a concerted effort not to get overwhelmed or stressed, which can be tricky at this time of year.  Not sure of my strategy yet, but I will take each day as it comes.

How are you going to make December work for you?


  1. I'm sure you will look fab in your little black dress.

    My plans for December are to just up the exercise. I may need to make a strategy for social events, potlucks at work, holiday parties, etc.. Those situations make me cave. I just need to move more overall though.

  2. Sounds like a sensible plan, Miss April!

  3. Hahaha, since your laptop shit the bed! :D .. that is the best thing I have heard all week!

    Glad you'll be blogging more!
