Keeping Myself Accountable in 2012

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

2011 started off fabulous and then in May 2011, I married my best friend. This was the best day of my life.

It was looking like a great year, and then the last few months happened. In October, I had a miscarriage, in November finances were tighter than ever, and in December I suffered from severe gallbladder attacks and spontaneously had my gallbladder removed the day before Christmas.

I know you win some, and you lose some. But man, these last few months have sure been a kick in the gut.

I really hope 2012 proves to be better than 2011.

2012 is going to be all about bettering myself. I want to continue my healthy lifestyle, maybe lost 5 more pounds of so, and prepare myself to sucessfully carry a baby.

That's all I really want in 2012, a baby.

I guess time will only tell.

In the meantime, here are my other goals for 2012:

1. Pay off ALL credit card debt
2. Run at least one half marathon, one FULL marathon, and a 5K with my hubby!
3. Continue to grow my bloggie in readership and my LOVE for blogging. www.thevegetablelife.com
4. Finish my MBA program and successfully graduate with my Master's degree
5. Read more and watch less TV; try to read 5 books in 2012

Cheers to the year ahead, may it be full of promise, health, and good fortune for all!

    Those are great goals for 2012! I'm hoping to train for a half -- or have a baby -- this year too, so it'll be fun to keep in touch!

    What a rough past few months you've had. Glad you're better, though. You have some very positive goals you've laid out for the upcoming year. With your determination, you'll achieve them. The baby will happen when you least expect it. That's how it was with our first son. We had been trying but nothing happened. Then some other things came up in our lives and that's when it happened. I didn't even recognize the pregnancy symptoms at first. I thought something serious was wrong with me! lol But surprise, here he is 10 years later!
    Enjoy working toward your goals! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like a rough couple of months for you. I just KNOW things will get better though! I'm excited to hear about 2012 for you.

    As far as the baby thing goes, have you read Jen's blog at http://www.runnerstrials.com
    I started reading hers a while ago and she talks about her troubles with conceiving and she just recently had a little boy a few months ago. Reading her story was so amazing, maybe just something you would want to check out if only for some positive thoughts.

    Have a great year!
