Catherine in 2012

What did you do in 2012 that you'd never done before?
  • Lost 30 pounds
  • Went to Cuba
  • Shot a gun
  • Baked a wedding cake
  • Went crabbing

Did you keep your 2012 new year's resolution and will you make any more for next year?
I don't even remember making any, so I guess that would be a no. I have not yet made any for 2013.

Did anyone close to you give birth?
Not that I recall...

Did anyone close to you die?
No. I am very thankful for that

What countries did you visit?
  • Baltimore, Maryland USA
  • Virginia Beach, USA
  • Varadero, Cuba
  • Cayo Santa Maria, Cuba

What would you like to have in 2013 that you lacked in 2012?
Smaller clothes!
A baby :)

What was your biggest achievement this year?
Losing 30 pounds in three months
Baking a wedding cake

What was your biggest failure?
Failing to start being serious about my health and well-being a lot sooner

Did you suffer illness or injury?
Thankfully, no!

What was the best thing you bought?
My Polar HRM to replace the one that was stolen last year :(
The Insanity workout DVDs
Kettlebells

Whose behaviour merited celebration?
Bart's - who else lives through my blog life (ie. baking cakes and scattering everything around taking pictures of them and leaving them behind) and then cleans up after it? He's supportive about every crazy shenanigan I get myself into!

Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed?
I wouldn't say depressed but I sure know someone who's behaviour is completely appalling and I can't believe he can be okay with living his life the way that he does without any thought to others or the consequences of his actions

Where did most of your money go?
Hmmm, cake supplies, baking cake orders, making cakes for other people, then when I was over cake stuff, workout systems, gym membership, DVDs, workout equipment, gear and of course digital cameras - always digital cameras

What did you get really, really excited about?
Going crabbing in Virginia Beach, shooting some guns at a range, doing high tea parties, going to Cuba - TWICE!

What song will always remind you of 2012?
Party in the USA - Miley Cyrus Apparently that came out in 2009 - whoops! 
Somebody that I Used to Know by Gotye totally fits with what happened with a person that I thought I knew, though

Compared to this time last year, are you:
a) Happier or sadder? Happier
b) Thinner or fatter? THINNER!
c) Richer or poorer? Still richer on paper, poorer in terms of what's actually in my account

What do you wish you'd done more of?
Taken more pictures, worked out more, kept in touch with people more, blogged more, cleaned more, saved more money

What do you wish you'd done less of?
Ate less nasty fast-food, worried less, procrastinated less, spent less

How did you spend Christmas?
With my family in CUBA!

How many one-night stands?
None that I am aware of...

What was your favourite TV program?
Big Bang Theory

Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
I don't hate her...

What was the best book you read?
I read a lot of books, though I'm not sure any of them can be classified as the BEST book I read in the year...those are few and far between!

What was your greatest musical discovery?
I wouldn't say it was the greatest, but I bought all of Taylor Swift's records *LOL*

What did you want and got?
I wanted to go to Cuba with friends and we did.  I wanted to celebrate Christmas in Cuba with the family and we did.  I wanted to lose weight and I did!

What did you want and not get?
I wanted to get pregnant...but it hasn't happened...YET!

What was your favourite film of this year?
Hmmm...maybe The Hobbit. 

What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
I enjoyed 2012 very much. I can't think of any one thing that would have made it better...besides winning the lottery or something!

How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2012?
Being proud that I was the smallest size at AddionElle *wince*

What kept you sane?
My secret Twitter account where I could actually "say" everything that I was thinking so I wouldn't have to bottle it all up inside *LOL*

Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
Celebrities and public figures are of no concern to me

What political issue stirred you the most?
  • President Obama winning his second term of presidency for the United States of America
  • The gang rape of a 23 year-old student in India
Who did you miss?
Out of sight out of mind?

Who was the best new person that you met?
Me...30 pounds lighter! *LOL*

Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2012:
At the risk of sounding like a cliched after-school special...you really can do anything you put your mind to.
