The year’s half over, so I thought it’d be a good time to check in on my goals for 2012. Looking back at the last six months, I realize that I’ve done really well in some areas and not so well in other areas this year.
In 2012, I wanted to:
- Strive to become a better, healthier me by accomplishing the goals I’ve set on this blog.
- Lose at least 30 pounds through healthy eating and exercise.
- Read the first half of the Old Testament and read The Book of Mormon again.
- Read at least 36 books. (This includes at least two classics.)
The goals I’ve set on my blog deal with my emotional, spiritual, and physical health. So far this year, I’ve focused mostly on my physical health. I’ve worked on my emotional and spiritual health as well, but I haven’t put as much effort into it as I could have. I need to step those both up in the last half of the year.
As of this morning, I’ve lost a total of 30.8 lbs! I’ve already reached that goal for the year! I’m excited to see if I can lose another 30 before the year’s over. (Also, because tomorrow is July 4th and I’ll be doing other things, there won’t be a Weigh-In Wednesday post.)
I read 35 verses in the Old Testament each day, which will put me on par with finishing the first half by the end of the year. I also read 20 verses in the Book of Mormon each day; I’ll finish it by the end of the year.
So far, I’ve read only 9 books. I’ve been in a kind of reading slump for the last two months. I’m trying to get out of it, but I don’t know how to exactly. Hopefully, if I continue to read, it’ll just go away after a while. I’ll finish Pride and Prejudice in the first part of August and then I’ll just have one more classic to read for the year. Although, Precious Bane could count. It’s just not the one I was planning.
Looks like I still have quite a bit to do, but I’m still really proud of what I’ve done so far!
