Stay below 230 pounds - NO
In 2013 I finally got below 230, below 220, and even spent a little time below 210. But after my marathon, I let myself go, and that number rose. I spent Oct-Dec above my goal weight. Shoot!
No McDonald's or Reese's Peanut Butter Cups - YES
I said goodbye to my two biggest problem foods. And honestly, I didn't really miss them.
Run a race every month - YES
3 years & counting, and some amazing new experiences along the way.
Run a marathon - YES
June 2, 2013 - Rock n' Roll San Diego Marathon - 26.2 miles of glory!
Run under the following times - NO
5K: 26:00 10K: 57:00 Half Marathon: 2:00:00
I didn't even come close, but set a new PR in the 10K
Run 3 destination races - NO
San Diego gets a point. Moab gets half a point because I've done it before.
Visit 5 new places - KIND OF
I made it to some places I have never been, but many of them involved exploring my amazing CO
Read the Bible - NO
Bits and pieces here and there, and read more of it I have in my life.
Increase savings accounts to undisclosed amount - NO
The first half of 2013 was a struggle financially, but the second half got the ship back on course.
Have zero balance on my credit cards - NO
Close, but no cigar
Volunteer - KIND OF
I did a handful of one-day volunteer things, but I was hoping for a consistent outlet.
Discover/Rediscover a creative outlet - KIND OF
I spent more time drawing & painted a couple things this year, but not to the consistent level I was hoping for.
Smile and laugh a lot - YES
And made a million memories along the way.
I accomplished some great goals, and a lot were left unfinished. And that's perfectly ok with me. I believe if you accomplish all of your goals, then you're not aiming high enough.
For 2014 I'm switching it up. I am putting the finishing touches on my 30 before 30 list - 30 things I want to accomplish by the time I turn 30 (Feb 1, 2015). I will unveil it on my 29th, and I'll have a year to conquer the list. Game on!
Happy New Year, everyone!
What are you going to do to make 2014 spectacular?
