How did you spend your New Years Eve?? I went to see the fireworks and had way too many alcohol beverages (no I didn’t, I had one. But did I sound cool for a second?)
Anyway, I thought it might be a nice idea to look back at the goals I had set for myself at the start of 2011 and see if I achieved them.
Here are the goals I had in 2011
Go to the gym at least 4 times a week (holidays excluded) – Yes I did this one!!
Swim with dolphins – I’ve had this goal for the past 5 years and its really not that unachievable. 2011 is the year! – 2011 wasn’t the year..I found out some shocking things about the way the dolphins in captivity are caught and don’t want to support it. I did hand feed a wild dolphin though!!
My sister is on the left (doing most of the feeding in this shot) and I am on the right. Excuse my other sister’s language. She was very excited! I’m on the right and fed the dolphin after this was filmed.
Eat smaller portions of healthier food – Yes! Definitely achieved this one. Eating 6 small meals a day has become normal for me now
Never feel ashamed/embarrassed about my body (because I’ll always be bikini ready) – Hmm, I can’t say that I didn’t felt ashamed/embarrassed of my body at all in 2011. I can say that my confidence increased tremendously though
Spend more time with my parents – This is a difficult one, my parents divorced in 2011 so it is hard to spend time with them because it always has to be separate and there is the risk of upsetting the other one. I probably spent the same amount of time with them as 2010
Explore South East Asia for a month or more and not be afraid to try new things – Yes I went to South East Asia and became a qualified scuba diver!
Be more outgoing and confident – Not really achieved. I better sign up to toastmasters this year!
Don’t go to fast food restaurants as often – Yep! Achieved
Have a closer relationship with my sisters - I think I achieved this one. We went on a sister weekend to Sydney and I booked a trip to Fiji with my twin sister (leaving in 12 days YAY)
Get a dslr camera and learn how to use it! – I bought the camera but didn’t learn how to use it. Auto mode is my best friend at the moment. 50% achieved
Take better care of my hair and skin – I started using under eye cream and making it routine to moisturise my face every night. I also started dry brushing but wasn’t SUPER consistent with it. Also, I have discovered Kerastase shampoo and conditioner. My hair has NEVER been healthier yay. AND my sister and I bought a Nano Keratin treatment machine together. I’d say this was achieved.
Drink green tea! - Not really achieved. I have had it on and off during the year but never made it a daily thing
See baby turtles hatching – I didn’t see them hatching but held a baby turtle that had recently hatched and released it into the ocean in the Philippines!
Go on more beachwalks – appreciate nature – I probably went on less beach walks because it was a busier year. This will be on the goal list for 2012
Walk my dogs more often – I took them to the dog park every Sunday to socialise which counts! Kind of achieved
Take better care of my car! (it hasn’t been serviced in a while) – My dad surprised me by servicing my car while I was in Asia. YAY! I have kept it spick and span
Drink more water - Yep
Try new recipes – I did try new recipes but didn’t cook as often
Donate to charity – Achieved!
I’m still working on my goal list for 2012. Do you have any goals that you are working on??
