How did everyone's New Years resolutions go for 2012 wind up? Did you achieve everything you set out for? Like the OP in the 2013 resolutions thread, I normally set vague ideas of roughly what I would like... more money in the bank, lose weight etc etc, but nothing specific. This year, I decided to be a lot more specific - I figure I can't get exactly what I want without knowing exactly what I want. So for me, my resolutions were:
Lose 20kg... ok, so I didn't get there, but I am about 7kgs lighter and a hell of lot fitter than I was so, I am still calling it a win.
More "me" time (or more DH and me time)... DH and I started scuba diving this year, which we have both always wanted to do so we get to do that together and have also had a couple of kid free weekends away this year. Win.
More money / less debt... so maybe buying a few thousand dollars worth of dive gear at the begining of the year wasn't the best way to achieve this one, but I have just been offered a new job with more pay, and I have nearly paid off the dive gear, so I am calling this one a win as well.
So, that was my resolutions for 2012, and overall, I think I did reasonably well... How did everyone else go?
