Year End Challenges/Goals Wrap Up

I can't believe 2012 is almost over!  The year went by so fast!  I set a lot of goals for myself for this year and I met some of them but not all of them.  My original 2012 goals post can be found here.

Goals for Reading:

 I signed up for 5 challenges and completed 3 of them.  I really wanted to finish them all but I had a really hard time with reading towards the end of this year.

Back to the Classics Challenge-9/9
2012 TBR Pile Challenge-9/10
2012 Support your Local Library Challenge-24/24
Historical Fiction Reading Challenge-20/20
2012 Eastern European Reading Challenge-3/4

I didn't do too well on all of my other reading goals.  I didn't read very many books I owned (only 21 out of 86!) and I didn't read any books in Russian.  I did take a Russian language class in the fall so I think my goal to work on the language skills kind of got met.  My last reading goal was to read one non-fiction book a month.  I did read 14 non-fiction books so I guess I met that goal in theory.

Goals for the Blog

I really didn't meet any of the goals I set for the blog.  I have been trying to comment more but I don't always do well with that.  I also started a twitter page for the blog but I tend to forget about it.  Oops!

Personal Goals

I did really well on my personal goals!  I actually finished my first ever 1/2 marathon in April and that was such a huge moment for me.  I went on to participate in three 5Ks, a 10K and a 4 mile race.  I completely embraced my love for running.  I had to give it up this fall due to some issues with my pregnancy and I miss it so much!

My other goals went well too.  I do eat more healthy foods and I have done well at saving money this year.  I also wound up switching jobs in June and am so much happier now.

Overall, I didn't do that great with my 2012 goals but I am not super disappointed.  I am not going to set any reading or blogging goals in 2013 considering all that will be going on.  I think I will be happy to just be able to continue reading regularly!

How did you do on your goals for the year?  Will you be setting any goals for 2013?
