In 2010 I…

As the year is quickly coming to a close, I have been looking back at 2010. This has been a pretty incredible year. It’s time to pat myself on the back, since we all need to be our very own cheerleaders and feel grateful for all that we have accomplished and are blessed with.

In 2010 I…

Got serious about my health and fitness goals, and started running 3 days a week, seen herehere, and here.

Began consistently running 3 miles in under 30 minutes. My PR was 27:28 for my second 5k race in August.

Completed three 5K races,  and one 10k race, written about here, here and here.

Launched a website (technically December 2009, but it counts) and began advertising on theknot.com, which caused a serious surge in my wedding business, seen here.

Worked 7 days a week for over a year, and though this summer almost killed me with the nuts schedule, I made it through and STILL love my jobs.

Learned how to do professional bridal makeup, and have successfully begun making brides pretty on their wedding days, as well as began doing photo shoot makeup, seen here, here and here.

Managed to pay all of our bills on my income alone, at least a few times.

Went to my very first live MMA (mixed martial arts) event and had good seats.

Went to my first (then 2nd, 3rd, and 4th) San Jose Sharks games, seen here

Traveled out-of-state to do hair and makeup, seen here.

Began offering fitness competitors services for hair and makeup with Tiffany through Pumped Beauty, our new business.

Added a dog to our family with Marlo, the hyper English Bulldog, seen here.

Managed to lose (and keep off) 10 pounds, getting to my lowest weight in years, and fitting into a size 6 (and as of yesterday, a size 4 from LOFT and NY&Co!)

I typically don’t make resolutions that stick, but this past year I managed to set goals that were attainable and found ways to stick with them. My fitness goals were met by making “appointments” with friends consistently. Each time I hit a goal, I made new ones to keep myself motivated.

In 2011, I would like to continue on the fitness trend with my first triathlon. I also want to develop my shoulders (hello, delts!) and my bum, which I quite literally ran off in 2010. Business wise, I want to increase my salon clientele,  broaden my bridal reach, and nurture Pumped beauty so it can leave the infant thought stage and become a full-blown influence and standard setter in the fitness world.

Do you make goals or resolutions, and how do you stick to them? Share your 2011 goals with me and I can help keep you motivated!
