I have to say, 2012 was one of the better years I've had in a LONG time. I had many "firsts" in my professional/personal life, and managed to tuck a few new achievements under my fitness belt, so to speak.
I'm a goal-oriented person and always looking for something new to try. Earlier in the year, I committed to reaching 20 (mostly) fitness-related goals in 12 months - aka 20(in)12 - and I'm proud to say that I DID!
Many of these were bucket list goals but a few were simply things I decided to do spontaneously. Some required training and preparation, whereas others were just fun activities... although, I had to muster up some serious courage for a couple of them!
My 20(in)12 Goals: #'s 1-10

|#2. Perform 10 bodyweight chin-ups|
|#3. Compete in my 2nd bikini competition and make it to Top 5|
|#4. Start my blog|
|#5. Go Sailing|
|#6. Take my 1st trip to Martha's Vineyard & Nantucket|
|#7. Go for a bike ride|
I also took a long, relaxing bike ride when I was in Nantucket, from one side of the island to the other. The above picture shows Sankaty Lighthouse in 'Sconset, which was one of many gorgeous views along the bike path.
|#8. Compete in an obstacle/adventure course race|
|#9. Become affiliated with professional fitness organizations/groups|
|#10. Go zip-lining|
Stay tuned for my next post with #'s 11-20!
