Out with 2011, and in with 2012

To say that I failed at blogging the last half of 2011 would be a complete understatement. That is obvious one of my yearly goals I didn’t make. Fortunately, really most of my tasks did get completed, even if I was wasn’t talking about them here.  I really felt like 2011 was an amazing year, so instead of taking away from this year’s major accomplishments (like starting a business) and focusing on what might not have got done (still need to do a wedding scrapbook) I’d rather just focus on moving forward.

To touch on something quickly though, one of the disappointments, really the only major disappointment, is that I did the same thing in 2011 that I did in 2010. I was within 5 or so pounds of my goal weight and then I gained it all back. This cycle is horrible and I am really going to try to break it in 2012.

Talking about 2012, there is a little different format this year. Instead of 100 things in 365 days, many of them not that challenging or things I intended on doing anyway, I decided to do a 30 When I’m 30 in honor of the big birthday I have coming up in May.

So, here is this year’s list:

1. Lose 30 Pounds and keep it off
2. Go on a roadtrip for at least 3 days with at least 10 stops
3. Do 30 things to pamper myself
