2011 Resolutions: the results

Last year I made some goals rather than resolutions, and since I've had a full 12 months to work on them, I thought it was only fair that I share the results with you.  Helps keep one accountable, don't you think??

1. Lose those last pesky 10 lbs. - I made it halfway with this goal and lost 5 lbs total. Not bad, considering I really didn't make a true concerted effort to lose it (so much for a goal, eh?). 

2. Run a full 5K race --I did it!!! Remember?

3. Move-- we DID it! 
4. Re-learn how to sew -- Another halfway accomplished goal....I aquired a sewing I just need to learn how to use it!

5. Relearn how to knit -- I am counting this one as a success because I learned how to crochet, and I am getting better at it (and haven't forgotten how to do it yet).  I'll post pictures once I actually finish a project....

6. Re-do the blog -- I'm happy with what I've done to redo the blog.  This isn't meant to be a money making machine for me, so I am content with where I am at.

7. Teach little Max to read - we are working on this one, and he CAN read SOME words.  So, I am counting that as halfway. 

8. Make at least one homemade/handmade crafty a month -- Although I didn't blog all my projects, I definitely accomplished this one -- if not DOUBLE accomplished it! 

9. Blog at least once a week -- Originally I said I had failed at this, but I am changing my mind because I think I did a really GOOD job -- especially with keeping up with life, moving, work, kids, etc.  Also, if I really wanted to 'win' I could've spaced my posts out more, seeing as it appears that I had 114 posts over 2011 -- that's OVER TWO a week!

10. Purge the house one room at a time -- while I did successfully do this (thanks to the move), you may notice it is on my list again.  I guess it is a continuous process around here...


11. **Breathe** -- my word of the year for 2011.  Man, this came in VERY handy.  And yes, while I didn't breathe ALL the time, I did do it A LOT of the time, so I am counting this as a yes also.
Not bad!!  Only 3 that I 'failed' at and those 3 I would consider half failed anyways!  I am surprised, pleased and content with these results.  And hopeful for 2012!  How did you do on YOUR 2011 goals/resolutions??
