i know you’re probably already sick of seeing goal check-in posts, but i love lists and seeing how i did on things, so i’m going along with this trend.
i made all kinds of goals for 2011 and broke them into fitness, education, and personal goals. i already checked in on my fitness and education goals (i did ok on them…), so now let’s see those personal goals!
- improve my cooking/baking skills by trying one new recipe from cookbooks or blogs per week
did i do it? yes! i didn’t track it, but i consistently tried new recipes all year and definitely moved out of my comfort zone for preparing food.
- try a new food each month
did i do it? yes! or at least pretty close… i tried all kind of new things in 2011! almond milk (which is now a staple of my diet), tempeh, spirulina, socca, farro, and many more.
- try a new restaurant each month
- start a blog and post at least 5 times per week, hopefully daily
did i do it? yes yes yes! i can’t believe i started this blog a year ago on december 31! blogging has become such an important part of my life – i’m sorry i didn’t start it sooner.
- meditate daily for 5 minutes in the morning OR at night
did i do it? eh. this is one of those goals where i started out really strong, but then fizzled out on through the year. i didn’t keep this one up, sadly.
- get organized
did i do it? yes! i know this was a vague goal, but i wrote it with the intention of getting organized before brad and i moved in together and i definitely accomplished that. i could definitely stand for a bit more organization in 2012 though. we’ve somehow accumulated a ton of stuff already even though we’ve only lived in our apartment for 9 months.
i think i did a great job on this set of goals in 2011! the only one that i didn’t succeed on was the meditation goal. i have a lot of ideas for personal growth in 2012.
check back tomorrow for an awesome 1 year blogaversary giveaway and my goals for 2012!
if you blog, when did you start yours?
what kind of personal goals do you have for yourself?
i’ve got a bunch of them in my head – i still have to decide which are most important to me to concentrate on next year!
