I didn’t achieve all my goals, but as you can see I did achieve quite a few, so I consider my first go-around a success!  My downfall was the habits, for sure, so you’ll see none of those on my latest list.  Also, we didn’t pay off our lines of credit because we paid off one of our student loans instead – go us!  Then I left a few goals to the last minute, and we didn’t have the money for me to take yoga or start a running program like I’d hoped, so those fell by the wayside.  Finally, I didn’t try wall climbing because I added that goal so I could spend time with my husband, but he’s decided that he’s not really into wall climbing anymore and that goal was rendered unnecessary!  Ah, how life happens.
