2011 Goals

2010 was a fantastic year full of new adventures and accomplishments, but the biggest lesson I learned was that I needed to slow down a bit.  In 2011 I want to focus on a few big goals and some small fun goals.  My inner drill sargent thinks this list is too short, but I’m trying to listen to him a little less and keep in mind that if I get everything done, I can always make another list right?  

So here’s what I’m focusing on this year:

Lose 50 more lbs
Run another 5K (under 35 minutes)
Run a10K
Run a Half Marathon
Do 10 Non-Girl Push ups
Continue Paleo Cooking/Eating
Sleep 8 Hours Per Night

Visit all of the following places:
New Mexico

Merge finances with Garrett
Add to Savings
Open Roth IRA
Rollover old Retirement Account
Make financial life more automated

*I know you are probably snoring after this category, but I must chime in really quick and note that I made my last credit card payment yesterday and I am OFFICIALLY FREE OF ALL CREDIT CARD DEBT!  So it really makes me happy to not be writing “Pay off credit cards” on this list for the first time in probably 10 years.  WOOT!

Home Improvement
Re-do Guest Bedroom
Paint Kitchen Cabinets
Paint Living Room, Office
Re-do Master Bedroom  

Random Other Stuff Thrown In For Good Measure
Find a good red lipstick
Buy a pair of boots
Make a Cooking Bucket List   (added above)
Read 50 books
Start Fertility Charting 
Entertain at least once a month
Write somewhere daily
See one of my favorite writers speak
Go to the ballet
Wine Taste in Amador
Move website to WordPress

I think it’s going to be a good year.

    When you make it to Amador County, stop by the Amador 360 Wine & Visitor Center first. They can give you good recommendations on wineries to visit and even have wines available for tasting that you can't find in the local tasting rooms. It's pretty cool.
    Good luck on your goals for 2011!

    Yay Holly! Congrats on the CC Debt…I know how it feels to have it on the hit list for 10 years, that's so awesome for you! and YES come here to Austin!! It's so great, you'll never want to leave it – except maybe in the 100 degree summers or when the cedar pollen hits hard, but you know minor details. Great list, I wish you luck.
