Happy 2012 everyone!
This is officially going to be my New Years Eve post, as I was in no state to write a blog last night… and I plan on writing another one tonight. So… Happy New Year!
I hope all you lovely people have a fantastic year ahead of you, full of health and happiness and good reading! 🙂
Today I’m going to go over my December Self Challenges (*cringe*) and see what I did with my first official challenge month… I think I need to focus more on the challenge aspects daily… or even just bring them up once a week so I can remember them and keep them in focus.
December Challenges, Recap!
Cook Healthier: Yea, the beginning of the month ruined me. I was in exam mode for the first week and had the largest sweet tooth I have ever had. And the more sugar I ate, the more I wanted. The more chips I inhaled, the more I bought. It was horrible. Then the Christmas rush came at the end of the month, and… well… This was a nice epic failure this month, but I don’t want to give up. I’m more determined now to get back on track, I didn’t really realize how bad I had actually gotten until I look back at this month. The amount of junk I ate was ridiculous.
Tone up for Christmas: Alright, again, the not eating right kind of threw this one off. But I still managed a little to keep it up. Just not as well as I had hoped. The problem with this challenge I think was that it was too generic. I’m going to have to get more specific.
Save Tim Horton’s Money: Hahahaha…. Fail. Enough said.
Write Some Stories: I haven’t failed this one!! I got some of my rewriting done! Yay! I still have more writing I want to do though…
Try at Least Three New Recipes: Check, check, check! Hot Chocolate Truffle Balls, White Chocolate Truffle Balls, Shortbread, Cinnamon Rolls, Funnel Cakes… CHECKMATE!
Read Some Good Books: Umm….
Try Some New Hair Styles: I did this too! Another check! I did pigtail half braids, fancy little updo for Christmas… CHECK!
Take Some Winter Photography: So, I did attempt this. I got some nice shots of the Christmas trees… but we haven’t gotten any snow, so outside winter pictures just aren’t happening yet. But I did get a few seasonal shots… so Check?
Well, I guess it was a sort of win-lose month. Not a complete failure, but I could do better.
