New years resolutions 2012 – review #4

29 12 2012

Before I set my resolutions for next year, I thought it was beyond time to give this years one last look and see how I did!

Fairly average and straightforward resolutions

  • Quit Corrie – Complete. I’ve watched occasional episodes when staying with my parents, but I’ve definitely stopped watching it!
  • Watch less tele – Technically complete. I only put on TV to watch shows I want to watch now, but I’ve kind of made up for this by binging on TV series DVD box sets instead, there’s something for next year!
  • Exercise more and lose a little weight – I did a 5k jog in May, but haven’t done a single thing since… I lost a bit of weight in August, but that was just as I wasn’t well and is now back on, but I’m happy with my weight now, it turned out losing that little scared me a bit because I didn’t want to lose too much, so happy with maintaining weight now, just need to be healthier!
  • Spend more time either on my violin or improve at the piano – This hasn’t gone well at all, but mainly because we moved to a much smaller house so I no longer have my keyboard, and there’s no space to get my violin out really.
  • Get my sewing machine back out and use it – Again, tiny house means this hasn’t been possible
  • Read more, and not just easy reads – I’ve read six books this year, (well, I’m desperately trying to finish the sixth before the end of the year but it’s non fiction and so I’ve been pretty slow with it). Which is good, but I haven’t put much time into it and reckon I could do better next year. Might be good to go for a higher proportion of fiction just to get through a few more books!
  • Less of the irritating chattering – Possibly
  • Reduce time spent on social media – Fail! But I am trying to put less content on and cut down on those who are friends who I wouldn’t talk to, will probably tidy up again in the new year.

A bit more deep, meaningful and more effort involved

  • Learn to love God more
  • Learn to think better of myself – I think I’ve actually made some progress here. No way am I there completely, but there’s been some definite movement in the right direction, a bit more confidence.
  • Have a more positive outlook

I’ll be back in a few days with next years resolutions!

How did you do with your resolutions this year? Have you kept track of them at all?
