2011 Recap!

I can’t believe its already time for me to think about what I want to do in 2012!  I generally forget about any goals I make within a month but I like to look back and see what was important to me and see how I did.  I was going to recap my exact goals that I made on Spark People last year but instead, I want to do a general recap.

Fitness & Health

Life in General

  • I took the huge step to go back to school and completed my first semester!
  • We incubated and raised baby chicks.
  • We grew a small garden and enjoyed the spoils.
  • We moved into our new place Smile (thanks Mom and Dad!)
  • Rob and I (mostly Rob) learned how to really cook from scratch including bread and pasta.
  • I started The Chicken Scoop to enter the real world of blogging!

So its been a pretty good year in general!  There is one major bummer this year though.  As I told you the other day, I gained some weight.  From June 2010-August 2011, I managed to pretty much maintain at about 143lbs with some small fluctuations.  After a long stressful first semester at school though, I am most definitely up in weight.  Blah!  But that is something that I just need to work on, right?  Now that I am all settled with a place at school and no work, it will be much easier.

Anyway!  So the next thing I need to do is work on goals for this coming year.  I haven’t even thought about them really so its going to be a challenge!

How was 2011 for you?  What did you do that you are proud of?
