2013 Goals – How Did I Do?
Posted by Caitie F on December 30, 2013
I just went back to look at my goals I posted in January of 2013. Let’s see how I did!
Book related goals
Read 100 books - Did that one! As of now, I am at 152 and might get a couple more!
Read 10 nonfiction books – Fail! I only read 5. Probably due to all of the reading I did for work. But I really liked those five.
Blog more regularly. I have a lot of discussion posts ideas, but I feel like I don’t get enough traffic to do them. - I kind of did this one. I have a lot of review posts scheduled into next year (one for June already), but my posting for 2013 was down and I didn’t do any discussion posts. Still have the ideas, but feel discouraged.
Get back to 150 pounds. - nope. Lost some weight, but not enough. Got an UP band for the holidays, so hopefully that will help
Now that I have more flexible insurance, get some new doctors. - I am giving this a yes. We got a new primary doctor who we LOVE. I still need a geneticist and a hip doctor, but got over the biggest hurdle. It makes such a difference when we like and trust who we have!
Become stronger. Losing weight is all well and good but I am sick of feeling weak. Since I am all about concrete goals
- be able to bench press more than the bar. This goal may change if I find out the barbell isn’t that hard, but I haven’t done and bench presses since high school. - not even close. I am still a weakling
- be able to do a pull up. I haven’t been able to since I was a kid. - Ha!
Do more active things, especially in spring and fall. It can be going on hikes, playing basketball together, just be outside more. - Another kind of. We did do some more active things, just not as much as I would like
Get our finances in better shape. - It is better, but not where we need to be.
Go on vacation. - Did this one! We went on a cruise to the Bahamas and it was wonderful!
Cook more new things! - Completed! We cooked at least 30 new things this year!
So overall, I think I did pretty okay this year. Could have done better, but we all can. How did you do on your goals for the year?
