2012 Goals revisited

Thursday, December 13, 2012

Here is a run down of the goals I had for 2012. I know the year isn't over, but it is getting close and time to give account for what I have accomplished in 2012 - good and bad.

Eat 5 freggies per day ~~~~ was NOT consistent with this.
Strength training 3x a week ~~~ I probably averaged 1x most weeks
Run at least 1 5K ~~~ emoticon I did one 5K race in Berlin.
Drink 8 glasses of water per day ~~~Still need to improve - not consistent.
Keep track of actual miles walked and run ~~~Thanks to my Garmin Forerunner, spark, and consistent logging, I did this. As of today, I have run or walked 649 ACTUAL miles.

Read through the Bible ~~~ I finished this early and started over in Genesis.
Read through Proverbs 12x ~~~ I accomplished this 9x this year.
Finish a Bible study with my DD ~~~We are NOT finished. Need to get going on this so that we finish before she moves out!
Memorize at least 2 verses per month ~~~ I memorized Proverbs 4:1-19 - In German. It takes me a lot longer to memorize in German than in English, but I know I could have done better than I did.

Character - All of these need CONSTANT work. I guess I need a way to evaluate this concretely. Any ideas?
Praise my husband
Don't complain
Be more patient

Finish child #4's photo album emoticon So glad to have finished this and bring it to my DS and his new wife when we travelled to their wedding.

As far as weight. I did really well up until the wedding. The 2 weeks in the States I gained - no joke- 9 pounds! Shows how easy it can come back on. I did manage to lose about half of it again, but this is an ongoing battle, as I'm sure all can relate to.

Stay tuned for 2013 goals. They are in progress.

    Setting and reviewing goals is a challenge for me so I admire your organization and commitment. I'm going to have to put some thought into my next steps - thanks for the kickstart! emoticon

    I think you did well! Consistency is hard for all of us. You are am encouragement to me. :0)
    Your blog challenged me to write down my goals for the coming year. I'll have to get busy and think it through.

    I like reading your plan. I need to make up something like this to work on next year.
    I think you have done great. Keep moving forward.
    I can relate to the weight issue for sure.

    I need to look back and see how I'm doing. Looks like you did better than average. I struggle with strength training also. I need to get consistent with it.

    Those are some great goals! And you did really well at keeping up with them, imho.

    I'll have to start thinking about goals for next year. So far, I've done mostly short term goals here on SP. But it would be nice to do a year-end review like you've done.

    You did fantastic in 2012! I can't imagine eating five veggies a day. I do good to eat five a week. I had lost 42lbs, but gained half of that back this year. I haven't weighed in ages because I fear I gained back the other half. I will weigh by the end of the year. You are the example of what can be accomplished if one wants it bad enough. Keep up the good work. emoticon
