Recap of 2010

Well, I'd say 2010 was a successful year. Sure, it had some downsides but you take the good with the bad- right? Here is what happened, both good in bad, in 2010.

  • Hit my 2 year anniversary with Court
  • Graduated college with the degree I've been wanting since I was 12
  • Graduated Magna Cum Laude and as the Psychology department's Outstanding Fall 2010 Graduate
  • Got my wish of getting a dog- my loveable, goofy, smart, sweet, athletic 94 pound yellow lab
  • Got back on the weight loss bandwagon after gaining back the 24 pounds I lost in 2009
  • Made all A's my last semester of college
  • Got my own apartment, even if it was just for a few months. The experience was awesome!
  • I got better at my huge hobby, cooking!
  • Gained back the 24 pounds I lost. I gained 25 pounds to be exact :(
  • Lost my best friend because I learned she really wasn't a friend to begin with
  • Realized that I need more female friends in my life
  • Still having a hard time finding said female friends I need
  • Spent too much money on people for Christmas and pretty much depleted my bank account
  • Spent too much time wishing I was engaged instead of being thankful for the amazing relationship I'm in- engaged or not
What I Want to Accomplish in 2011

  • Lose my remaining 25 pounds to get to my goal weight (lower than the weight I got to in 2009)
  • Maybe even go lower than that goal if my body allows
  • Workout at least 3 times a week, if not more
  • Get into grad school
  • Do well in grad school in that first semester (hopefully make straight A's since I am capable)
  • Celebrate my 3 year anniversary with Court
  • Save most of the money I earn from working
  • Pray more
  • Be a nicer person (I'm not mean now, but I have some shortcomings that are sometimes not-so-nice)
  • Run a 5K
What were your highs and lows of the year? What would you like to accomplish in 2011?


  1. First off your "good" list is amazing and you should be totally proud of that! What great accomplishments you had! Especially graduating with that honor! Second the not so good is completely okay! I am totally with you on losing the female friend, and needing to find more. Sometimes friendships are the hardest to keep and hardest to lose. Stay strong! I like what you want to accomplish I want to do the 5k and lose my remaining weight! Heres to 2011 for ya girl!

  2. Agreed with Kel - especially the dog part. I love dogs :) they make me so happy. I'm right there with you on wanting to run a 5k - it'll be such a huge accomplishment!

    My high of the year - a 15 minute, nonstop jogging, mile. My low - the entire summer. I was off track, unhappy again, and surrounded by friends who were showing off great bodies.
