Resolution Recap

Wow, did this year fly by or what?  I feel like I was just writing my resolutions for 2015!  For the first year I can remember, I actually did a pretty good job keeping my goals throughout the year.  Here's what they were:

1. Send out birthday cards
2. Exercise every other day
3. Blog better:
     A. Blog smarter with new and unique ideas for blog posts
     B. Blog more personal
     C. Blog harder: proofing and photos
I wrote every birthday in my planner in big, red letters, and only forgot 5 or so birthdays (most of whom I remembered to send belated cards to).  I haven't talked about it very much on the blog, but Mike and I have actually become much more active this year.  With tennis, kickball, golf, and the gym, together we have lost almost 50 pounds.  More than making it a task everyday to work out, Mike and I have enjoyed finding new things to do together that are also active.  I even attended a Barre class with Charleston Blog Society!  Last was the blogging one.  I've tried really hard to be personal and blog about life down here in Charleston.  I had a lot of fun working with new brands as well as having the opportunity to try new products.  I appreciate all of my readers so much and am thankful for all of you!

To be completely honest, I'm still trying to figure out my resolutions for 2016, but I imagine that they will closely mirror those I had this year.
  • What were your resolutions for 2016?
  • Were you able to stick to them all year?

Woohoo for losing 50 pounds, it's great that you guys haven't focused entirely on that and more on just having fun while working out, totally helps!! I don't quite know my resolutions, but I'm sure I'll come up with a few by the turn of the new year!

Emily said...

50 pounds together?! Wow, that is so awesome!

Also, sending birthday cards is one of my resolutions for 2016!! I haven't written them down in big and red yet...I should definitely do that!

Congrats on doing so good in 2015!!

Liz Jo said...

Umm congratulations!!! That's incredible!!! I hope y'all keep up that good work for the new year.

Also, what really helps me with birthday cards is using a birthday card holder. This is what I'm talking about. Mine isn't this one, but I use it for the same reason. You can write names next to the dates. I use it for birthdays, anniversaries and special events that repeat every year.

I stuck with a few 2015 resolutions for most of the year but kind of got lazy there at the end! Happy for 2016 and a new, blank slate! Happy New Year to you!
