2013 Goals Review & Weigh-In

Last January I found this neat version of a new years resolution sheet, filled it out and shared it here.  Today I thought I’d go over it and share what I managed to accomplish this past year.
First off, for the record…
Today’s Weight:  166.0
Loss/Gain: +/- 0 from last month, but +6 from my original “maintain” weight.  
Seeing that I managed to maintain in December, instead of putting any more weight on I guess that’s good.
And now for the 2013 Goals…
My one word was “DO [what’s hard]” because I knew I was facing a few things I’d never been through before.  I kept this sheet on my dresser mirror and every time I glanced at it I was reminded that I could do it.  
I wanted to paint a piece of furniture and ended up painting my bedroom dresser in the fall.  I love how it turned out. 

I needed to pay off our one credit card.  We paid off about 3/4 of it and we still plan finishing the payoff this year.  
I planned to continue sharing my weight loss journey on my blog and to share my burdens when they got heavy.  I continued to blog and when I opened up to others about my struggles during the deployment I was great encouraged that I was normal and everything would be okay.  It made me grateful I humbled myself and reached out when I needed to.  Deployment is no joke, but we made it through safe and sound.
I wanted to succeed at reaching my goal weight of 140 pounds and run my first half marathon.  I did not lose the extra weight (in fact I think I’m finishing up the year one pound less than last January).  However, I DID run my first half marathon, running the entire distance and that was a huge success. 
All in all, I feel I had a successful 2013.  At times it was a bit trying and I learned a lot about myself, but there were no major tragedies or mishaps.  Now I’m ready to see what 2014 brings…and I confess I’m a little more than happy to know my husband will be by my side through it all.
