a great fellow blogger brookem recently posted a 6 month check up on her new years resolutions.
i thought this was a fabulous blog idea and i immediately went to my first ever blog post dated january 2, 2008 (yeah i'm still a newbie), to remind myself what i wrote.
it seriously feels so long ago that i made the list because so much has changed - like people actually reading my blog now! well all 48 members of my family do.
upon looking at my 2008 resolutions i realized that my list sucked! i should have gotten way more creative, guess i'll have to save that for 2009. it is what it is though and i still need to check in on the list.
so here are my 2008 resolutions in no particular order with half way through the year updates:
"work out and eat right (this has been my go to resolution since around 1990)"
-well the working out thing happened for a little bit. i joined the downtown ymca and had a personal trainer
-i haven't been to the gym in months, $40 down the tube each month - FAIL
-i have 8 personal training sessions waiting for me, already paid for. maybe i should use them huh?
-eating right has only recently been happening for me
-vegan eating is still awesome and working, 15 pounds down
"stop buying designer bags (this is going to be a tough one)"
-i have bought ONE designer bag (my gorgeous red chloe) in the last 6 months, but it's an improvement people!
-it's still a FAIL though
-but in my defense how could i not buy the bag when i had customer service like this???
"stop instantly judging people (this is going to be a REALLY tough one)"
-HUGE FAIL need to work on it
-who was i trying to kid in making this?
"let the past be the past and instead of dwelling on it learn from it (this one is going to be easy)"
- i was right from the beginning, this one WAS easy
-success! boys shmoys
"put the cellphone away when i have had too many glasses of pinot noir (my roommate has a similar no drunk texting resolution that i think is brilliant)"
-um, i think this is a half win half fail for me.
-instead of drunk texting i have been drunk emailing from my blackberry - oh the shame.
-but i haven't really had any interesting boys these past 6 months that i wanted to make stupid drunk texts/calls to. must work on that!
"START MY BLOG!!!!!!!"
-obviously 6 and a half months later i'm still trucking away, GO ME!
so there you have it - i bet the majority of my friends and family that have been reading the plum from day one are pretty shocked i have kept this little piece of the internet going for as long as i have.
here's to another 6 months - cheers.
what's your 6 month update? would you give yourself a pass or fail grade?
