2013 Resolution Results

✗ Earn 1 Bridge Master Point
░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░ 0.0 master points

Excuse: I changed jobs in March and got consumed with ramping up and some other side-projects. Now I need to re-read all the Bridge books I read in 2012 since I have forgotten everything I learned. Bummer.

✓ Drop 20 pounds
██████████████████████████████ -22.4 lbs

Success: Thankfully, Twitter (my employer) encourages fitness, and I used the on-site gym and healthy food options to get better control of my weight this year. I'm planning to maintain the trend this year.

✗ Read the A Song of Ice and Fire series
░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░ 0.11 of 5 books

Excuse: I am a terrible reader. I don't like to read. Particularly fiction. Particularly fantasy. The problem I have with fantasy books is that there is so much setup that hardly anything happens until the background information is established. I lose interest.

✓ Read 3 graphic novels
██████████████████████████████ 4 books

Success: On the other hand, I like comic books. I checked this one off early in the year. Have suggestions of great graphic novels? Let me know!

Batman: The Killing Joke

Howl: A Graphic Novel

V for Vendetta


✗ Walk 1000 miles (~20mi/week)
██████████████████████░░░░░░░░ 740.9 miles

Excuse: I used FitBit and my site StepStats to track this. When I changed jobs in March, I had to give up my treadmill desk. I still managed to walk around the city and the office quite a bit despite that, however I didn't quite reach my goal.
