We just finished the year 2010 and I am happy it is over. 2010 was not my favorite year so I am hoping 2011 will be much better.
My New Year's Resolutions for 2010 were:
1 - Lose 5 pounds
2 - Participate in 1 marathon
3 - Participate in 1 triathlon
4 - Be more financially secure by the end of 2010
So did these resolutions happen or not?
The first one to lose 5 pounds did not happen and since I have not run in the past two months, nor done much of anything because of my foot I have gained 2 pounds. I know many people would say that 2 pounds is nothing but I have noticed right away how big my belly is - with just 2 pounds!
The second goal to run a marathon did not happen. I did do 2 half marathons and my longest run to date is 17 miles.
The third goal of the triathlon did not even come close to happening. I think I forgot all about this one.
The fourth goal to become financially secure is one of the reasons 2010 was just awful. We did sell our house and that is a huge relief. But at the same time I lost a great job. Since my new job is not quite full time and the dentist I work for takes a lot of time off during the holidays that I do not get paid for, I have almost cut my yearly salary in half. I was hoping to sell our house and keep my old job and then if that was the case we would be financially secure at this point and we would be paying down our credit card debt. But since 2010 sucked that did not happen. So I am more than ready to say good bye to 2010 and welcome in 2011.
