New Year's Resolution Recap--sliding into home

Now that there's only about six weeks before I have to start thinking of 2010 goals, I figured I'd do a recap of my 2009 New Year's Resolutions.

Health/fitness
1 Do yoga three times a week. I have not been keeping up with this. I was doing really well for about six weeks in the summer, but I just sort of lost momentum.

2 Go to bed early/get up on time and eat a healthy breakfast at home (starting two days a week). This is second nature now. I have a pretty set bedtime, and I went from buying bagels every single morning to eating at home every day. I don’t even want a bagel anymore; I like my healthier breakfasts so much better and I stay full longer. I also started bringing a piece of fruit as a mid-morning snack, which is awesome.

3 Cook more often and more interesting things in order to stop eating out so much. I think Peanut and I have this one pretty much covered. He’s definitely the better cook, and we’re pretty good about variety and healthfulness.

Personal
4 Handle some things with my family and finish therapy. I don’t know that this could ever be considered “done”, but I did wrap up therapy and I’ve made some big changes in my relationships with certain family members. It’s a work in progress but I’m able to both be more honest and maintain firmer boundaries.

5 Keep GPA above 3.8. I brought my cumulative GPA from 3.85 to 3.87, not including the classes I’m currently enrolled in. After these two classes, I’ve just got a thesis to write, so this is it!

6 Start stepping away from the internet a little more and focus on real life, specifically at work. I think I’m doing a little better with this. At any rate, I’m better with skipping over stuff that I’ve missed, not needing to read every single post in my reader after I’ve been on vacation, unsubscribing from stuff I’m not reading, etc.

7 Update this blog three times a week. I have been doing better about this, but could do better still.

Financial
8 Develop and stick to a new budget and stay under flex spending cap. The budget was no problem, although I did go over the flex spending cap with the unexpected dental work I had this year.

9 Start saving for “future” fund. Started, and growing monthly!

So overall, I’ve done pretty good on this year’s resolutions. I just need to get some sort of regular physical activity in my life.

  1. Oh man, totally not looking forward to the 2009 in review. I actually think I did OK with my financial goals, but everything else...
