2015: Resolutions Review

 

Let’s review my resolutions for 2015…

Original: 1. I want to lose weight. Just like everyone else. Except this has to happen. I can’t handle looking at myself in photographs or on a scale. I have never weighed more than I do now and I don’t ever want to again. The number is so despicable to me that I can’t even say it aloud.

Resolution: Lose 15lbs.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!! I was close to 165lbs and am now down to about 143lbs. 10 kg down. 20 lbs. Well done, me!

2. Get laid. Seriously, I thought I was being practical last year with that whole ‘get laid 20 times’ thing.. such bullshit. However, I refuse to give way to this one. I will get laid at least 20 times – it counts even if it’s with the same person. No need being a slut about it. I’m 28, not 22.
MISSION VERY ACCOMPLISHED!!! A special thank you to those who participated in helping me achieve this goal. 😉 You know who you are. 

3. Visit 2 new countries again! Last year I had hoped it would be Japan and Taiwan. Instead, it was Japan (twice) and Philippines. I would still like to visit Taiwan this year, my goal instead of Japan is Malaysia. Luckily I have a friend who lives in Kuala Lumpur who I have made many promises to visit….

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!! I managed to visit Malaysia and Dubai in 2015. I also got to revisit Hong Kong and Japan. I’d say it was a very good travel year.

4. VISIT GARY in KL!! (gary – this WILL happen)

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!! Thank you Gary and Jon for hosting me and putting up with my elephant-itus legs. It was an honor becoming a lobster with you Gary. And I’m more than pleased to say that Gary swung through Korea and we had a lovely champagne brunch…. and looked WAY better than we did in Malaysia. Boys, congrats on putting a ring on it! (your finger. a ring on your finger.)

5. Save 10K – something that is not as easy to do in the US. It’s pretty simple for people working in Korea. When my flight and housing are paid for, I get a pension, and hopefully make a few $ on the side by selling food and what not… this should be easy.

                 MISSION NOT QUITE ACCOMPLISHED!! 😦 I’m more than halfway there though! Yay for that. And it is possible that I can have that by the time I get home if I don’t go spending it all again. Damn. I’m bad at this one.

And so, with 2015 gone and 4/5 resolutions completed, I’d have to say that I did damn well! Look for the new blogs with my 2015: A Review and another with my 2016 resolutions.

2014 Resolutions: The Final Review..

2014 is almost over. In my head I say, ‘Thank goodness.’ But it hasn’t been a bad year. It just wasn’t a great year. I made a resolutions list for the first time in my life and I think it’s time to do an honest review of how things went….

 

2 – The minimum amount of new countries I will visit (Taiwan and Japan)japan sushiborocaylips
—Goal Achieved, although I didn’t visit Taiwan. I made it to Japan (twice) and Philippines.

0 – My goal for a credit card statement.
— Goal (mostly) Achieved. I have enough to pay it all off and went to do that yesterday, when I noticed a charge of $577 from Hertz (when I had already paid $580 to Hotwire for the car rental). That charge is being disputed. So, stay tuned.

1 – attempt a 5KIMG_3137
— Goal Achieved. I ran my first (and maybe only) 5K in April in Gyeongju at the Cherry Blossom Festival. I did not run the entire thing, but I did a pretty good job of running most of it.

4 – days a week of working out… (unless I can make it more.)
— Goal Failed. 😦 I was doing well the first half of the year, then I had hernia surgery in August and haven’t been to the gym since. 😦

20 – have sex at least this much (it was a bad couple of years)IMG_1832
— MAJOR FAIL. LAME. 6/20 …. I can’t even begin to explain this one. But thankfully, I now live in Seoul and have a Tinder account 😉 Let’s see what happens..

14 – lbs to be lost by 2015
— MAJOR FAIL. STUPID. I have gained 20 lbs in 2 years. I am ashamed and disgusted. The hernia surgery did put a damper on that for a bit. But this year will be different. I am losing that shit.

201 – times I talk to my family
— Definitely accomplished. We talk on the regs.

2-14 – Run two miles in 14 minutes ((I’m a really bad runner))
— Definitely FAIL. I stopped running after the 5K. 🙂 I am not a runner. my boobs are too big.

2014 – smiles (hypothetically)
— I don’t know how this one went. I honestly feel that I may have failed on this one. I am so good at stoney face. Hopefully, more smiles will come in the future.

 

I accomplished 4.5 out of 9 resolutions (the half being the smiles). Look for the 2015 resolution list soon!
