Last January I found this neat version of a new years resolution sheet, filled it out and shared it here. Today I thought I'd go over it and share what I managed to accomplish this past year.
First off, for the record...
Today's Weight: 166.0
Loss/Gain: +/- 0 from last month, but +6 from my original "maintain" weight.
Seeing that I managed to maintain in December, instead of putting any more weight on I guess that's good.
And now for the 2013 Goals...
My one word was "DO [what's hard]" because I knew I was facing a few things I'd never been through before. I kept this sheet on my dresser mirror and every time I glanced at it I was reminded that I could do it.
I wanted to paint a piece of furniture and ended up painting my bedroom dresser in the fall. I love how it turned out.
I needed to pay off our one credit card. We paid off about 3/4 of it and we still plan finishing the payoff this year.
I planned to continue sharing my weight loss journey on my blog and to share my burdens when they got heavy. I continued to blog and when I opened up to others about my struggles during the deployment I was great encouraged that I was normal and everything would be okay. It made me grateful I humbled myself and reached out when I needed to. Deployment is no joke, but we made it through safe and sound.
I wanted to succeed at reaching my goal weight of 140 pounds and run my first half marathon. I did not lose the extra weight (in fact I think I'm finishing up the year one pound less than last January). However, I DID run my first half marathon, running the entire distance and that was a huge success.
All in all, I feel I had a successful 2013. At times it was a bit trying and I learned a lot about myself, but there were no major tragedies or mishaps. Now I'm ready to see what 2014 brings...and I confess I'm a little more than happy to know my husband will be by my side through it all.
