End of the Year Goal Check--2013

Monday, December 30, 2013

I sat down at the first of the year and tried to write some realistic goals for 2013 (both weight related and non-scale goals). They were nothing earth shattering, but small steps toward a better life. I would like to say that I accomplished all my goals, but I am human and allowed health issues and excuses to get in the way of what I wanted out of life. is how I would rate my progress for the year:

To exercise at least 3x a week---2 emoticon most of this year health issues kept me from exercise of any kind. Looking forward to turning this around in 2014.

To drink at least 4 glasses of water a day---4 emoticon This one has always been a struggle, but I am still working on it.

To lose at least 20 lbs (from 196 to 176)---0 emoticon I seriously went in the wrong direction this year...up to 205.

To read through the Bible in a year--- 4 emoticon started out strong and dwindled off as usual...but, small progress is better than none.

To write at least 5 new songs---0 emoticon Zero songs for this year. My heart just wasn't in it...

To write at least 5 new poems---10 emoticon Exceeded my goal. Wrote over a dozen poems and even had one published!

To write at least 5 short stories---1 emoticon Wrote a children's book, but nothing else.

To get A's in all my classes this year---10 emoticon All A's in spring, summer, and fall classes!! One more semester to go...

To keep my home more clean---4 emoticon Most of the time I have not been proud of the way my house looked this has had some "shining" moments and some "wow, what happened in here" moments. Hopefully since I've had my surgery, I will have more energy for housework in 2014.

To do something every week to de-junk my home/life/etc --5 emoticon I am actually okay with this one. I did something nearly every month to de-junk my home (not every week). I have been more aware of the clutter and made conscious efforts to remove it from my home. Small steps, but they feel good.

While the numbers aren't very impressive, overall, I feel good about the progress I've made considering what I was up against this year. Time to think about 2014 goals. Who's with me?
