Goals, Spreadsheets, and Why I'm Awesome

That's what everyone else is writing about this time of year, right?  It's time for the annual recap of this year's goals and accomplishments.

My goal for the year was pretty simple--work out 10 times per month, every month, all year.  

When I started my magical spreadsheet a several years ago, my entire goal was to get fit.  In fact, "Get Fit" is the name of my magical spreadsheet.

I definitely had a more fit, more active year than I ever have before.

The last three months have been nothing short of insane, so I never got around to writing goal recaps for each of the months.  Instead, here are my workout summaries for each month.  (You can click to biggie-size them.)

So, the big question is: How did I do overall?

You probably guessed this already, but I kicked ass.

Basically, from 2006-2009 I worked out a combined total of 33 times.  Combined!  Yikes!

In 2010 I tripled that number in a single year and worked out 100 times.  I remember my last yoga class last New Year's Eve and how excited about the changes I had made in my life.

This year, in 2011, I tripled (!) my 2010 total and worked out 300 times (!!!!) in a single year.  

My workouts broke down as follows:  267 yoga classes, 3 extended walks, 1 heavy move, 3 times on the elliptical, and 26 bike rides (which is twice my number from 2010).  

In conclusion: I'm really, really proud of the fitness goal I set--and achieved--in 2011.  For 2012, my focus will be on maintaining my fitness, expanding to new areas, and focusing on other areas that I tend to neglect--like eating, sleeping, and finding balance in my life.

I hope that your 2011 was as happy and successful as mine has been and that you have a safe and exciting New Year's celebration!  

See you in 2012!
