2010 Resolutions Revisited...

Well we're 1/12 of the way through 2010 already...can you believe that?!  It's been great to us so far... lots of fun times and relaxation!  I think it's time to grade myself on the progress of my 2010 resolutions...what do you say?

1- Start a Blog -- A
-->I started it, been pretty consistent, and got 25 followers!  More than I could have imagined...heck I give myself an A+ [might be my only one!]

2- Maintain 115 lbs [well the last 2 weeks haven't done be I have to HIT 115 first!] -- D
-->I have sucked at porportions this month and am still around the 120 lb. mark :(  Spring will be better...right?

3- Enjoy our 1st year of marraige to the on relaxing and improving myself and our relationship each day! -- B
-->I really think I have improved in this area.  I'm learning to not let the small things bother me & we have had a ton of fun!  So far we've had several nights with friends [games & dinners], took the nieces & nephews to Omaha, and went skiing a couple of times.  I still have areas to improve on, but am very happy so far!

4- Work out 5 days per week... Consistently -- D-
-->I have been terrible!!!  I averaged 2 days a week this month :(  Revised Goal...3 times a week in February.  This will be more attainable before the weather gets nice...then 5 days a week!

5- Buy a house -- C
-->I give us a C only because we're actually talking about this and glancing at a few different options.  The Ball is rolling at least...

6- Grow my hair out -- B
-->I'm hanging in there!  I did get a had been almost 4 months! Still working on it and haven't changed my mind yet, so that it good!

7- Find a nice church and go on a regular basis -- C
-->I get a C because I went once...which sounds terrible BUT I only skipped one week.  The other weeks we were out of town or working.  Last week was the only one I was selfish & just didn't go. :(

8- Become a business owner -- N/A
-->I'm putting N/A because we have decided to hold off on this and spend the money for other things *cough*a house*cough*  We have decided to reevaluate this in 2011.

9- Run a 5k -- C
-->I haven't actually started to run [again weather!] but I did tell my sister that I would run it with I think that is a fair step for icy January and no treadmill.

Well....A.B.D.D.C.B.C.C--Rocking the C average!  Wouldn't have made my mama proud, but on the flipside I haven't totally bombed!  They're still attainable!  

I'm going to add a #10 to the list...
10-Spend less money/Save more money!
I'm really proud of us.  We have only been married a couple months and have [almost] no debt.  We still owe on our condo & my student loans but everything else is paid off.  We want to work really hard at saving the extra money instead of squandering it away little by little.  So...Let's see how we do...February is always a tough month for money since it's so short!

What about you?  How are your New Year Resolutions coming?


  1. Gosh, #2 is right up my ally! I am at 119 and trying to get down to 115! 4 lbs! Shouldn't be that hard right?? haha I need to learn to control my eating habits and cut back a bit. I think my portions are out of control and I've actually started using a smaller plate. I've heard it helps with the visual part of your appetite.

    We could totally help each other out on this goal! I'm trying to workout 4 times a week this month, so if that goes well maybe the weight will fall off? haha :-)

    Good luck with your goals!

  2. Hey C is passing!! Yeah I'm 140 and am totally jealous of your 120!

  3. Wow, do you know what happens wen you just glance at a post before you start to actually read it?

    You see that the year is half over instead of 1/12 over and you think...what the hay?
