Hello friends.

Here are the results or lack thereof from November 2023.

Wellness / Happiness

Here's a rundown of my home workout space.

Complete at least 720 minutes of exercise or more each month.

  • I fell short this month by logging only 702 exercise minutes. I completed 8 cycling sessions, 7 weight lifting sessions, 4 walks, and 2 elliptical sessions.

Weigh in under 200 pounds and stay there.

  • Things went off the rails over Thanksgiving and stayed that way when I attended a recent professional development conference.

Complete at least 30 journal entries monthly using a paper journal and Day One App.

  • 31 journal entries this month.

Embrace a Mediterranean / Dash Diet.

Education / Teaching Career

Read at least two education/teaching books this year and write a book summary blog post on each.

  • One book summary to go.

Share at least four education resources per month.

Here are the resources I put together last month. It was a big month.

Write in a paper journal at least three days per week.

Dreams, Retirement, and Money Stuff

Publish at least two newsletters per month.

Create at least two YouTube videos per month - step out of your comfort zone.
