2007 – How’d I Do? (Post #500!)
Are you serious? It’s already the end of 2007? How lame. How unfair. How come? It probably has something to do with how many times the Earth revolves around the sun and on its own axis, or something. Which, by the way, is a bit odd since 2008 is a leap year – so the Earth just decides to go around the Sun once more. Deal with science, I don’t make up the rules.
To keep myself in check, it’s time to see how I did on my my New Year’s Resolutions.
- Set up a meeting with a financial planner.
I took this off the list, it was fairly obvious that I didn’t make this a priority and seemed to manage just fine without it.
- Limit fried potato intake to once a month.
This started off as it said in the resolution: fried potato. But I thought that was a bit easy, so I changed this to one fried food item per two-week span. That didn’t work quite as well as I thought. I think while I had changed my habit from fries to other tasty side items, I had a harder time remembering that I was instead focusing on fried food in general. While I think I nearly accomplished my original goal, the secondary one floundered.
- Visit Kansas City’s museums.
Ashlee even tried to help me finish this one, but life got in the way. Not a single Kansas City museum was visited. Look for an amended resolution to come out of this one.
- Pay off other credit card.
DONE! Now all I have is this year’s Christmas debt to pay off and I’ll be set!
- Walk to work at least twice a week.
My goal was to walk at least 104 days to work. My count on Thursday was 100 even. So if you take into account that I had three weeks off for vacation AND this entire week off for the holidays - I technically surpassed my goal.
- Use all of my vacation days.
- Go through storage items and purge.
As I said before, this is why we have basements, right?
- Boycott shopping at Wal-Mart.
Not even an issue.
- Limit my soda intake to one a month.
Rarely crave high fructose corn syrup anymore.
So I failed some and passed with flying colors on others. How did everyone else do?
