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.

Health goals

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

Other goals

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?

    I NEED to read the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson, they sound incredible. I’ve heard a lot of comparisons between The Testing and The Hunger Games but I’ve read quite a bit of positive reviews so I’m curious to try it. Whoa that’s quite the number of books you read, congratulations! I hope you achieve all your health/other goals these year, I definitely need to work on getting fit and planning out a vacation.
