1. Leave my old job as well as I can. DONE.
2. Enjoy my month off. Totally done.
3. Get lots done during month off also! Yup!
4. Rock out the new job. I'm gonna go with yes on this one too.
5. Complete the BP MS150 in April. In its shortened state, but yup!
6. Do a triathlon! Yes, two, actually, and a relay!
7. Train for and complete the 8 mile Turkey Trot. (Eg. Running, not walking.) Sorta on this one. I thought I would be in Dallas for Thanksgiving last year in January, but we ended up in Austin, downgrading the 8 mile to a 5 mile. I did complete it, but I definitely didn't train like I should, nor did I run the entire thing. So meh.
8. Start a garden. Yes! Built two boxes. Apparently we are very talented at peppers and terrible at tomatoes. We did eat some broccoli that we harvested just the other day and it was FABULOUS. Goal for next year is two more boxes and more variety of plants. Oh and not to suck at tomatoes because I lurve me some tomatoes. Would also really like some carrots and onions...
9. Start a family game night on Thursdays. Did I successfully start a thing? No. We did play a few times and we did enjoy it. The problem might actually be Thursday... maybe I could try for a different day....
10. Focus on conscientious spending. Well, this one travels on a sine wave and we ended the year on a spending spree as always. You'll see this one pop up again in next year's goals.
11. Lose 20 pounds. Total fail. I really struggled with the job transition more than I thought I would. This one will also make an appearance next year.
12. Cook more, better at home. We did actually improve at this. I've gotten better at planning meals and estimating the correct amount of stuff to buy to not have tons of waste. I would like to continue this moving into next year.
13. Go climbing. Yup, twice! Even had Z's birthday party at the climbing place!
14. Take Zoë camping for the first time! YES! And success! Would definitely like to plan more trips, perhaps locally at the various state parks in the area.
15. Make stained glass things. Nope, fail. But I brought this up with Preston again the other day and we both got excited, so this might make a reappearance next year as well.
That's 10 success stories, 3 partials, and only 2 fails. I'm gonna a call a WIN for 2015!
