This year was tough. There was a lot on my plate for the entire year: grad school, then finding a job, then a job that took 14 hours of my day, and now recovering from all the stress (and finding a new job). Despite all that, looking back at my Plans for 2015, I pretty much accomplished what I wanted to this year! Let’s review.
Goal 1: Finish My Master’s Degree
This one was an easy one! I knew I would finish, though it was tough. I am happy to have done it nonetheless!
Goal 2: Prepare for New Adventures
I didn’t know what life would hold for me after graduation. It is still looking shaky but I did embrace a new adventure by taking a job in Chicago briefly. While it didn’t work out, I didn’t let fear of moving stop me from trying.
Goal 3: Return to Regular Exercise
This one was up and down constantly all year. I had absolutely no time for exercise while finishing school, despite finishing a few spring races. In October, I joined an online fitness website (gee, I never blogged about that, note for later!) which got me off my butt again before I had to move back to NJ. Now, I have the new gym and training classes to keep me going so I call this one a success!
Goal 4: Lose Some Weight
This is pretty much the only thing I didn’t succeed on. It would have been nice to lose weight, but life had other plans. I had a lot on my plate and worrying about my weight was not something I needed to think about at the time. Now I have the time to take care of myself and can think about this one again in 2016.
I was pretty realistic with my 2015 goals, which helped me achieve them. While I didn’t lose weigh or run a ridiculous number of miles, I still got some things done. I knew it would be a tough year.
I am not sure what 2016 will bring but I hope I can continue to grow and reach some new goals and achievements!
