2012 is coming to a close, so that means it’s time to look back on how I reached my resolutions from earlier in the year.
- Learn to cook
Well, I made some pretty good dinners and breakfasts this year at school, and definitely ate healthier. I’d say I met this resolution, and plan to continue it next year!
- Be more frugal
My bank account tells me that this has happened. Wow, has life been easier when I’m not always buying junk!
- Spend more time outdoors
I began this year sticking to this, however, as the year went on, I got busier and wasn’t able to be outside as much as I would have liked. I still want to change that!
- Read more
I read quite a bit over the year. I’m happy with that, and will be keeping it up. I have a hefty “to read” list and and currently 52 pages into reading
- Start a workout habit
This was hit and miss as I began teaching more. I’d say that eating healthier has helped me feel more “in shape”, and I’ve tried to pick this back up recently, as I just signed up for the GORUCK Challenge in May!
- Clean at least once a week
Yeah, I’ve done ok at this. I was much better with this in the dorms and apartment at school than at home. I need to pick this up (haha) back home now that I’ll be living here while I student teach.
- Cut out clutter!
This has happened, for sure. I think I’m gaining a keen sense for what is just stuff and what is necessary. Again, it just makes life so much easier.
So that’s how 2012 went for me, resolution wise! It was a good year, and here’s hoping that the next is even better! 2013 will have fewer resolutions, but there are some big events awaiting me in 2013 that I can’t wait to share! Stay tuned for those on Tuesday!
