How I did on my 2010 Resolutions

Referencing this post, I'm going to let you guys know how I did on my 2010 Resolutions, and tomorrow, or Saturday, I'll let you in on 2011's Resolutions! Hooray!

2010 New Years Resolutions:

1. Finish the house... all of it... down to the last curtain. - Did Not Happen. However, we did finish the kitchen (almost), all the flooring, and curtains for the front room. We also added massive amounts of furniture. I'm hoping 2011 can make this goal happen.

2. Significantly reduce my sugar intake (i.e. pretty much take sugar out of my diet) - This DID happen! Seriously! I rarely eat sugar (OK I wasn't perfect over Christmas), I mean, we're talking a DRASTIC reduction.

3. Make more time for Akira, teach her new tricks. - I could have done better on this if Akira would stop peeing so she could be with the rest of us all the time. I try though, I really do.

4. Make new friends and maintain old friendships better. - This actually happened. I got rid of the baggage in my life, I have made new GOOD friends, and made most of my old friendships better. I haven't been great with long distance friends, and I do apologize for that. It's hard when you live such seperate lives.

5. Enjoy one of my last childless years with my husband. - I deem this the best year of Marraige yet!!!

6. Take a Yoga class. - FAIL

7. Take Pilates. - 'nother FAIL - but in my defense I did try Zumba, and SKY DIVING this year... those are adventurous.

8. Be a better wife. - Not to toot my own horn, but I have been putting in some serious effort in this department and I feel like I was victorious this year.

9. Aquire a wardrobe that actually fits/looks good on me/get some pants tailored rather than rolling up the cuffs. - lost some serious weight this year, gained a little back, lost it, gained it. Eventually I ended up at the perfect ratio for me (I think) and have a good wardrobe to match. Outlet malls saved the day!

10. See all 4 of my sisters at least once this year and call my brother more often. - I failed. I saw Meghan. I saw April. I saw Rebekah. I did not see Valerie (though I tried). However, I did see Jonathan, so you could call it a WIN!

11. Clean my house more regularly. WIN! I clean it, or my friend Kathy cleans it. Either way I win.

12. Become a Better Trainer. - I'm gonna give this one to myself cause I have worked my buns off to learn and grow professionally.

13. Figure out where I stand on my Religious Beliefs. - I'm working on this. I'd rather not discuss how I feel on the matter at the moment. It's a private and personal journey, but I'm working on figuring it out for myself.

14. Move to Denver. FAIL. My parents just moved to DC so that's not even something in the cards anymore.

15. Learn to cook more than just Broccoli and Salmon. WIN!!! I now can make muffins, scones, crockpot anything, chicken a' la' Caitlin (my own madeup recipe that is AMAZING), healthy cookies, etc! I'm lovin it!
