2010 Goals-How'd I do?

Way back in January I picked some goals I wanted to accomplish in 2010. In July I did a half a year recap. Lets see how I did after one full year!

Goal #1- Meal Planning- I must say this is something that I did keep up on. We had a dinner planned almost weekday this year. Of course, there were few times where something popped up but other than that I am pleased with this goal. It is something that I plan on continually doing. 

One of my favorite meals from this year. 

Goal #2-Get Fit- I must say I have come a long way since 1/1/10. This past year I have ran in 6 races, went to the gym at least 4 times a week, I drank my last pop in March and gave up fast food in February. I am in the best shape of my life. I can't wait to see what 2011 brings me! I have to brag a little. I want to look back on this post next year to see progress(if any)!

Goal #3-Learn to sew- I really, really tried to accomplish this goal. I came to the conclusion that my sewing machine sucks. I hate to say that because it was a gift but it is awful. There is no control over the speed, the thread gets tangled up, and I get frustrated. I plan on selling it on Craigs List  in a few weeks to maybe look into buying a new one. 

Goal #4- Pay off school loans- DONE! The only debt we have is A's car and our mortgage (which we just refi'd to a 15 year loan! Sweet!). I'll take that!

Goal #5- Read 50 books this year. Sadly I didn't get this one done either. I did read 35 books and I am proud of that. It is the most books I have read in one year. Some of my favorites: Emily Giffin's Heart of the Matter, Chelsea Handler's books (funny!!),and Kristen Hannah's Winter Garden.Who knows maybe next year I'll hit the 50! 

Goal #6- Make a 1001 in 101 days list- yea, this didn't get done either and I really don't have a reason why. I think I just kept forgetting about it! I will try for this in 2011!

I must say for never sticking to resolutions in the past I think I did pretty good this year. In the next few days I will have my 2011 goals. Have you thought about yours?

you have every right to brag! i mean look at those ABS!!! ;)

i'm proud and jealous. i know i could do it myself, but i guess it's so easy to think that i'm just not the type of person who could accomplish that. oh, the lies we tell ourselves!

i have no doubt you'll accomplish many a great thing in 2011.

You look great. I think this year I am going to attempt the soda and fast food goals (or something similar). I have a new job that doesn't have travel so I might be able to achieve these.

Also 35 books is a HUGE accomplishment!
