2011 in review

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

Before I post my 2012 Resolutions, I thought I'd take a look back at 2011 and see what I've managed to accomplish, and what I still need to work on. In March I went skiing for the first time in my LIFE! I honestly didn't do too well, but it's something I've always wanted to try. Last fall (October, I believe) I tried indoor rock-climbing with some of my SparkFriends emoticon - I managed to climb a little, and would love to go again! I also ran in a 5K and completed it, and just a few weeks ago went "tubing" at the Bricktown BallPark, another first! So 2011 was a year of "firsts" for me! emoticon

However, for the 2nd year I got my weight down to 135, a mere 10 lbs from my goal, only to gain back almost all the weight I lost this year. emoticon Clearly I've got some self-sabotaging issues to work out. I also put myself on a 12-week mini-challenge with three goals, and I really met only one - giving up Diet Coke! The other two, healthy snacking & consistent exercise, still need help!

As for the rest of my life, I got a less than favorable performance review at work emoticon But I set some improvement goals, and for the most part accomplished them! My supervisor said she'd write a report for my file, which is VERY good news! emoticon Onward and upward!

    I agree with Cheryl! And you were quite the "rock" star!

    If we didn't make mistakes and keep trying, would we learn? Nope-that's why we're all here. Goes for all aspects in life. Keep those feet moving forward!
