after reviewing my resolutions i made for 2009, i realized i really only met one of the three.
i did indeed end the year living in a different state than i started the year, which is partially why i didnt meet me other two goals. that and the fact that i am i own best demotivator.
one of my goals was to pr in a 5k, be able to do 5 man pushups, and the splits. i did none of those things this year. i did however complete a triathlon and a 10 k, ran 4 straight miles (even though it wasnt very fast, i finished them) and tried bikram for the first time. right now i am the most out of shape i have been in quite a while, since we no longer belong to a gym and it is snowy and icy outside.
the second goal i failed to meet was to be completely off all medication for my colitis by the end of the year. i am still just taking 1/4 of the prescribed dosage, and feeling great, but i would love to be off all medication completely.
which brings us to 2010.
i am going to re-up some 2009 goals: i would love to pr in a 5k (or 10k, i'm not picky), and would love to be off all medication by the end of the year.
in addition to that, i am setting a monthly goal for january: work on my wedding scrapbook. most of you are thinking... wait a second here. didnt you guys get married in 2005? yes, thats right. we are about to celebrate 5 years together and our wedding scrapbook is yet unfinished. january will be a slower month at the theatre so i have more time off to work on these crafty projects that have fallen to the wayside.
i would love to run or walk 500 miles this year. thats less than 10 miles a week. some of you reading this may be very impressed by that figure, and some of you think, pshaw i ran that before breakfast this morning. for me, 10 miles a week is doable but will be a stretch. it is easy in the spring and summer and harder in the fall and winter. i need to find a friend with a treadmill! :)
i havent done my final tally, but i think i read over 500 books for the second year in a row. i will continue to keep track of what titles i have read, but probably will not participate in any reading challenges again this year.
i am going to try to come up with a goal for each month of the year... but first, let's see how i do with january's.
anyone out there have any goals/resolutions they would like to share with the class? making them public is a great motivator. :D
