Happy New Years everyone! I hope you all had a fun New Years Eve and are not too hung over this morning! Jose and I stayed in last night and like the old people we are, we went to bed before midnight ha ha! But we were woken up by fireworks at midnight so I did get my midnight kiss! We were both exhausted (I’m totally pulling the pregnant card here) and just wanted a calm evening at home because we know we have very few of those left! But we are excited to spend many future New Years with Emilia!
2011 was a great year and we did many great things throughout the year, including getting pregnant! I thought it would be interesting to take a look at last years New Years Resolutions I made on January 1st 2011 and see what I accomplished!
Main Life Goals
My first goal is to get rid of my debt. I’m really going to push that this year and I hope to be debt free soon!I’ve cleaned up about 80% of my debt! I’ve paid off about $30k in debt this year and I have about $10k to go! I’m really hoping to get pregnant this year! That I only have so much control over, so hopefully things will work out for us and it will happen.Finally got the positive pregnancy test in September! Become more organized in my house, office, and life.I did become more organized in my house and life in general BUT not in my office space… so I kind of failed at this one but did do parts of it! So it counts, hehe. Work hard and accomplish great things!I did work hard and made many accomplishments this year! Work on this blog more and grow it into something wonderful.Even though I did stop posting mid-year, I picked it right back up towards the end of the year and it’s doing better then ever! Take lots of pictures and videos so I can remember all the great times I will have.This I really did carry out! We got a Nikon and an iPhone this year, so I have many great pictures of our wonderful adventures. Be Healthy and Happy.I had much happiness this year and got my health back in April when I discovered going Paleo and Gluten-Free!
Personal Fun Goals
Loose the 15 pounds that I have gained from being a lazy butt and not being as active as I used to be a few years back. (Everyone needs a weight loss goal right?)I did lose 15 pounds and more! It took till I discovered Gluten-free/Paleo eating though! Check out my post about it here. Hit the gym more, try new classes, start hiking, and just overall be more physical. Sitting in front of a computer has taken it’s toll on me.I didn’t really start working out much till I found the wonderful thing called Crossfit and became in the best shape in my life! But now I’m pregnant and fat, ha ha! But I can’t wait to get fully back into it once Emilia is born. Get back into my designer jeans that I love so much but haven’t gotten to wear because of my lazybutt-ness.Goal Achieved! Check out a few posts above for proof! Although I can’t fit in them now (6 months pregnant kind of do that to you, haha!), I will work towards this goal again once I have Emilia. Try new things whether that will be activities, food, beauty, fashion, or life in general.I did this as well! I really tried to be fashionable, got into new kinds of foods, and joined Crossfit. Travel more but do it smart and within my budget.We drove across the United States back in March, went to California, Vegas, and more!
- Have more dinner parties at our house! I did have a few dinner parties, but not as much as I hoped for!
Make more friends since most of my friends live on the east side and it’s like an hour away.. I’m taking applications for people on the northwest side of Tucson! Ha ha!Met tons of great people at Crossfit and the Paleo community! And whatever else I decide I want to make a goal but I’m not aware of yet. I like to change my mind a lot so this list will probably change 10x.I stayed pretty well within the list and think I did great!
Now I need to make a new resolution list! What is your new years resolutions? Check back tomorrow when I will continue remembering 2011 by doing a month to month in pictures.
