- Raise $5,000 for Covenant House Pennsylvania -Done March 3, 2017
- Run the Dirty German 50 mile race on May 13, 2017 – Almost 1 year to the date of giving birth to Bowen. – Ran the 25K it was during a Nor’easter and the conditions were atrocious so I would say 1/3 done but not really done.
- Lose the baby weight – I am over it. I want to feel and look like myself again. Current Weight – 140 lbs/Goal weight – 120 lbs. 20 lbs to go! – Nope not even close. After the holidays I ended up at 136 lbs. So I lost 4 lbs all year. Not acceptable at all.
- Rock climb More – No set amount just get on the wall/outside more. – Done-ish but this lets be honest? This goal was Bullshit. Goals need to be more specific than this shit.
- Travel More – France and Niagara Falls are already on the list. We ended up traveling to France, Florida, California and back to Florida for the holidays so I am happy with our travel this year.
- Blog More – No set rules just simply more – Nope not even close to done and here we have another bullshit goal.
- One small house project a month – complete with a blog post about it. Again a big FAT NOPE.
- Declutter – more donations and selling. I donated a bunch of stuff and sold a bunch more so I did really well with this but not so much with limiting our acquiring stuff.
- Spend less – what’s the point of decluttering if I am just going to fill the house back up with more stuff? Yeah so here is were I feel like I failed miserably. Less stuff was not implemented but I guess the goal was not to spend which I really didnt but we acquired a lot of stuff for free and it was not good.
- Green=Goal completed
- Red = Failed
- Brown = It was a shit goal to begin with so I could say I completed them but I would just be selling myself short.
