2011 Goal Recap

2011 Goals (goals in black, outcome in colors)
*run a 5K in under 30 minutes :(  I did get a new PR but still several minutes off sub 30

*run a half marathon in under 2:45, preferably under 2:30 :( I did get a new PR of 2:49. I actually forgot my goal was under 2:45.  I was thinking it was under 3:00, which I did do!

*do 2 or more triathlons :( I only did one triathlon this year.  Another one that I had planned to do was not put on

*lose weight (which will help a lot with the first two goals) :) yes!!! I have lost about 20-25 pounds this year.

*stop drinking soft drinks (had quit, but during my sickness started again)  :(  not even close to stopping....

*get at least 1-2 more states marked off my list :) I did get West Virginia marked off

*cook more :) we have been cooking much more than 2010 and are limiting our eating out to only 2-3 times a week. 

Even though I didn't meet all my goals, other than my "stop drinking soft drinks" goal I did either meet my goal or made huge improvements! I'll going to call it a successful year!


  1. Definitely a successful year - congrats!

  2. What a great year!!!!!!

    here is something I do, that works for me and might help you with soft drinks. I have it once a week, usually on the weekend. So if I am at work and I want one, is it worth having it now, or save it for later in the week. It works for me

  3. Great goals a year to be proud of.

  4. Visiting from fitness friday, wow 20-25 pounds is impressive! And way to go on the faster races!

  5. sounds like you had a very successful year! Your one triathalon is more than I have ever done...I'm so impressed with people who do tris.

    I've pretty much kicked my soft drink habit, although I still don't drink nearly enough water! great job this year!

  6. it sounds like you have had an incredible year and i am so excited to see what 2012 has in store for you :)

  7. GREAT year!! You should be very proud!
