Newlywed Resolutions–LAST CHANCE!

By | October 25, 2012

In case you didn’t know, there are only 8 more Wednesdays before Christmas.

That means if you haven’t yet accomplished your New Year’s resolutions, it’s time to do that.

Here’s a sneak peak back at our resolutions:

5. Write at least five things that are just for me. I can worry about what to use them for later, if anything.

6. Run more races. I’d love to do another half…maybe a full 26.2? I’m young now, and my knees and ankles and hips will only get worse, right? I only ran 1 or 2 in 2011, and they were fun, so I’m ready for more.

7. Finish reading 8 books that I ALREADY own and have squished into our bookshelf. I’m terrible about buying new books instead of reading ones I already own but haven’t read.

See? It’s full.

8. Use more coupons and take advantage of price matching. I also need to do a better job of keeping track of how much we spend and save.

I can tell you we have NOT accomplished everything on our list yet. Yikes. I’m still working on it. And trying to focus on making measurable progress so I’ll have some things to share with you in January when it comes time to make our resolutions for next year…

Here’s a fun game, which resolutions do you think I have or haven’t accomplished this year? I’d love to hear your guesses!

So what about you? Have you checked in our your resolutions recently? How are you feeling about that progress? Have any you totally gave up on? Let me know!

(Also, as a side note, progress is coming along on the new blog home. I can’t wait to reveal it to you guys, and start getting excited…word on the street* is that there will be a little *giveaway* to help celebrate the opening!)

*And by street, I mean the winding pathways of semi-crazy-semi-organized blog thoughts in my head. 🙂

    I think you have accomplished #8 and #5. As for me I only accomplished 1–went on a 2 week vacation with my Hubby!

      Good guesses! I’ll reveal the answers when I do my follow-up post later. Thanks for playing along! And I’m glad you got your goal accomplished! Roadtrips are so fun! That was on our list, too!

    I only accomplished one of mine. 🙁 However, the first year I don’t resolve to lose weight, I lose 20 pounds. I will take it. 😀 I think I have time to check off a few more if I get on the ball, but the photography and salsa classes are going to have to wait.

      Those are such fun resolutions. I’m sorry you didn’t get around to checking them off, but you should try again next year because they sound awesome! Good luck with the rest of the year’s goals!

    So I’m overachieving here, I looked back at the original post and I know for a fact you completed #4! I’m going to guess that you have done good on #5 and also #7. Even just accomplishing a few is impressive!

      Very impressive! And yes, those are good guesses! Thanks for playing along! I guess I see what you mean about even accomplishing a few, but I’m not so good at admitting defeat for any that I don’t accomplish. Maybe that’s something to add to the list for next year!
