2012 Goals Update
Now that things are settling down, after one crazy beginning of 2012. I'm looking back at my goals for 2012 and it feels like I'm getting a lot checked off this year!
Body: I wanted to start running or loving to run I should say. I bought a treadmill and was doing awesome for a little while and then things got a little crazy. However, I'm going to start this back up this week. Of course we don't have air conditioning and it's been pretty warm lately so that should be fun. HA! I have lost 30lbs since May 2011. 11 inches in my waist and 4.5 inches in my hips!
Mind: I suck at the journal. LOL. One day I would love to do this and keep up with it! In the organization department, I have found that Wunderlist is my life saver! I have it on my tablet, phone, Tony's phone, and my computer. It's a great way to keep everything organized. I have list for every room in our house. HA! It was also a huge help for the reception and making sure everything got done!
Travel: This year I have been to Hawaii, Washington DC, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Camping, Traverse City for a wedding, and many other little trips around Michigan! It's been a very eventful year so far.
Kayak: We went Memorial weekend and will be going this week also for the 4th of July!
Camping: We are at 2 times this year (including this week's trip)!
Remodel: The laundry room is finished except for some decorating and a couple of little things. For example, we have to tile the crawl space door. The dining room has been started. We started planking the walls with pallet wood. More on this later. They are looking really good! We built the nook in the kitchen and bought some stools to go with it. Post coming soon on these updates!
Debt: I have been doing some contract/design work for extra cash. We have been able to pay some major debt off and hope to be even more free by the end of the year. Better update on this next time I do a goals post!
