Friend Making Monday -- 2012

Twelve in 2012

1. What was your greatest personal accomplishment in 2012?  I would have to say my biggest accomplishment of the year was completing my first 1/2 marathon. I did it just the other day and I couldn't be prouder of myself!
2. What’s the best thing your did for your health? I gave up soda in February for Lent and I haven't gone back. I think that is definitely pretty important for my health. I also started going to Weight Watchers again in September and I'm more determined than ever!
3. Share one thing that caused a significant change in your life this year.  I think realizing what I really want in life has caused me to make some big changes. I no longer want to be poor and overweight.
4. List a few things that you experienced for the first time at some point over the last twelve months.  
- I went to Europe (best thing ever!)
- I did my first half-marathon
- I did my first mud run
- I sent my baby off to kindergarten 
5. What was the coolest place you visited? I absolutely fell in love with Paris! I loved the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre. I also really loved being in Vatican City. It was such a religious experience for me and something I will never forget.
6. If you could change one thing about the last year what would it be?  I would spend more time organizing my life at home. I feel like it is often times such a mess (physically and in my head). 
7. What is the best meal you ate this year? Honestly? The first night in Europe we went to dinner and had this pizza-like dinner that had cream cheese and sour cream -- NOT MY THING! Jami and I went around the corner from our hotel and got a kebob and fries and it was the most delicious thing every! 
8. Tell us about a new friend you made.  Because our sons were in the same preschool class, I became really good friends with a woman I've named C. She is super sweet and we can just sit and talk with each other. It is always nice to add someone new to your life! And our boys love playing together! 
9. What did you hope to accomplish this year that you did not?  I wanted to shed a lot more weight than I did. I'm not going to dwell too much on it though because I have lost 10 pounds and I am on my way to a healthier me.
10. Share something you learned in 2012.  I learned that I really can do anything I set my mind to.
11. Share an odd and unexpected thing that you experienced this year. I'm not really sure. I tried to think and I really can't come up with anything off the top of my head.
12. How do you think 2013 will differ from 2012?  I think I will be more organized in 2013 and that will help me achieve my financial and physical goals.

I absolutely LOVE FMM -- if you haven't done it go check out All the Weigh!!!


  1. I love your 2012 first-time experiences -- what an amazing list! I'm with you on the organizing and also should have done more, but spending time on other things, like half training, trip planning, whatever, is so much more enjoyable! Came by from FMM.

  2. Stopping by from FMM!! So jealous that you got to go to Paris. I want too but I think i would freak out flying over the ocean. haha!
