10 Days of Christmas Goals

Today was officially my last day of work until December 28 – whoop whoop! I LOVE being off the whole week of Christmas. It’s so nice to just concentrate on the holiday instead of worrying about work (and my commute). We used to get the whole week of Christmas off as a freebie, but now we actually have to take vacation time, other than Christmas Day.

To maximize my 10 days off in a row, I have decided to set a few goals for myself. Some of the goals are holiday related, while others are just plain goals.

Goals for the Christmas Break…

  • Wrap the enormous amount of Christmas gifts that I have stashed around the house. Seriously, I have like 40 gifts that I need to wrap. I can just feel the pressure building.
  • Go through all my clothes and set aside the things that I want to give away
  • Take a bunch of stuff to Goodwill. It’s a tax write-off ya know!
  • Practice yoga at least once (sorry, Jenna, that’s about all I can give right now!)
  • Study for my personal trainer certification. I’m hoping to take the test by the end of January – yikes! I get nervous just thinking about it!

Ok, I think that’s enough for 10 days. So, what are your goals for Christmas break?

 My sister is in town now and we’ve got a busy weekend planned. I’m signing off for now – have a great night!


  1. I’m kind of addicted to taking stuff to the Goodwill =) Good luck with your goals!

    • Hillary – I FINALLY took my donations to Goodwill – it took me two trips! Have fun with your end-of-the-year cleaning and Goodwill trips 😉

  2. If you’d like a tool for setting your goals for 2010, you can use this web application:


    You can use it to manage your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, schedules and a calendar.
    A Vision Wall (inspiring images attached to yor goals) is available too.
    Works also on mobile.

  3. 40 presents!! Wow 😛 Sounds like a good list of stuff to get done! Have fun with your sister & her family!

  4. Good goals! I don’t really get a break (just one day) but I’ve been doing the 30-Day Shred this month!

    • Hey Low! Wow – the 30-day Shred? Have you seen any results? That program really looks tough – makes running look like a piece of cake.

  5. My goals for Christmas Break are to relax and enjoy time with the family. I also plan to indulge and not feel guilty about it 🙂

    • Kristine – Being a Polish Catholic, I am used to guilt around the holidays 😉 Seriously though, if there was ever a time to indulge, it sure is the Christmas season!
