2011 Resolution Round- Up Recap.. RRR...

It's crazy to think how quickly this year flew by. There were definitely its amazing ups, and very low downs but all in all it was a fantastic year!

I set my expectations for this year a lot higher than I had in past years, and for good reason! It was time to get out of my funk and start enjoying life again. Last year my resolutions to help aid in my 180, were:

1) Get healthy.
2) Continue the search for my career
3) Enjoy the little things

Lets start from the bottom, enjoying the little things. This year I taught myself to stop and enjoy whats around me. I was able to be surprisingly content over a cup of tea and a book for hours. Being able to just stop was a huge win for me in itself.

My career search wasn't so fruitful. I did go to a couple interviews with a large Richmond based Marketing firm, which was eye opening. Looking back, I've realized I am a little too by the book and in order to break into marketing I need relay everyday Catie more into interviews.

And now number one: Getting healthy seemed like the most daunting resolution every, as well as one of the most popular, but this one I give myself an A- on! It took a pretty hard kick to the soul, and my Father nursing me back to tell  me it was time to put some gym shoes on. This year I joined the gym and (outside of retail hell holiday) I have been going on average every other day to get a work out in. It has lifted my spirits and dropped my weight! So far I have lost 6 lbs, and 17" off my body. It feels amazing, and people are definitely starting to notice. The changes to my body are really just a bonus, because my main intention was to get my mental health in check. And now I can safely say I feel better than I have in years. I am happy, and for that I think 2011 has been the best year yet.

Stay tuned for my new 2012 resolutions.
