Simply Life: 13 by 2013 Goals

13 Dec

So, what’s up with your 13 by 2013 goals? Since writing down mine, I’ve slowly been trying to accomplish them throughout the year. Simply looking at them and seeing them uncrossed makes you want to just simply DO it. From 13 of my goals, I’ve so far achieved 6 and a half and working on a few more before the year ends.

Looking back, health has somewhat been the least priority having not lost the desired 25 lbs. I’m happy to report though that I’ve lost 10 lbs and hopefully when I start to exercise next week as the year winds down, I’ll be able to add 2 – 3 lbs more to the amount lost. I’ve participated in 4 runs only this year. Boo! As a result, I didn’t have the stamina to run a 21km let alone finish it in 3 hours. Lets move these 3 goals to next year!

With all the flurries of 2012, I wasn’t able to find time to attend a cooking class. I managed to bake only 4 cakes though I think I’d still be able to finish the 8 before the year ends. Lets see!

Next year will definitely be a fun year of traveling having qualified to the Mediterranean Cruise. France, Spain and Italy here we go! Working on getting hubby onto the FREE trip as well. This year was a good traveling year as well having gone to 7 countries with 2 of those FREE courtesy of Prulife. Would have wanted to go to more countries for FREE but alas though I qualified, the timing was just not right. We were bound for another trip and hence, had to encash the trips.

Next year’s goals will be bigger and grander! Uncrossed goals will be moved as part of list still to be accomplished for next year.

How’s your list so far? Have you crossed out any of them? Which one did you like the best?
