2011 Goals — Mid Year Check In

I know mid year wouldn’t technically be until the end of June but who wants to get technical anyway?  I’ve made a lot of progress in some areas and just about none in others.  It will be nice to have a little direction moving into the second half of the year.   

Lose 50 more lbs *I’ve lost about 80 total, not too shabby.
Run another 5K (under 35 minutes)  *I’ve slowed down on all my running endeavors — the back story is here.  But I am still going to run a bit more before the year is out.  
Run a10K
Do 10 Non-Girl Push ups *Man, I can still only do about 2.  Come on upper body! 
Continue Paleo Cooking/Eating *Yep, and still loving it
Sleep 8 Hours Per Night    *I’m doing this 95% of the time

Visit all of the following places:
Austin  *Planning on it for The Blathering in October!
New Mexico *Done!  And it was a blast!

Merge finances with Garrett
Add to Savings
Open Roth IRA
Rollover old Retirement Account
Make financial life more automated  *And I’m pretty much failing this whole category.

Home Improvement
Re-do Guest Bedroom
Paint Kitchen Cabinets
Paint Living Room, Office
Re-do Master Bedroom   *Failing this category too.

Random Other Stuff Thrown In For Good Measure
Find a good red lipstick   *No surprises, Chanel Glossimer (Spark) is still my fave.
Buy a pair of boots
Make a Cooking Bucket List  (done!)
Read 50 books  *Holy hell I’ve already read 37
Start Fertility Charting *Yep
Entertain at least once a month (January:  New Year’s Brunch with Kelly + Gee, February: No one – but two in March counts, right?  March:  John + Janine, Jeremy + Katie April:  No one  May:  Garrett’s 30th Bday)  *Pretty good on this one, I think.
Write somewhere daily *Yep, and how awesome it has been!
See one of my favorite writers speak *Planning on trying to swing David Sedaris in November
Go to the ballet
Wine Taste in Amador

All in all, I am feeling pretty good with my progress at the halfway point. Health and Random Stuff are definitely earning A’s.  I’d give Travel a good solid B-.  Finances is currently getting an F but mostly I’m just being lazy about that.  Home Improvement is definitely getting an F but this should not come as a surprise to you.  We’ll see what happens.    

Looking forward to checking items off this list along with my Summer Bucket List and maybe a few things off of my Cooking Bucket List

I better stop typing and get busy!

    I demand a heads up when you come to Boston.





What I’m Pinning

  • Delicious tender chicken meatballs, smothered in sauce and cheese, and baked until bubbly hot. This new twist on an Italian classic is easy to make and will quickly become a family favorite! I prepare a lot of recipes. Many make it to the blog, some make it to the garbage, and some find a special …
  • Tortoiseshell Balayage Lob | Say farewell to foils—forever. Some personal realizations occur when sitting under a red-tinted hood of heat and wearing enough foils to make contact with an alien mothership. Sure, you can get six weeks of color before growing roots plant you back in that salon chair; but you can also end up with brassy zebra stripes that bring back memories of ultra-glossy Lip Smackers and frosted cream eye shadow. (The early 2000s called, and they want those platinum blonde
  • I love this cut! Edgy messy bob...great color.
  • Bye Bob! Hallo Fashion-Lob! Diese Frisur wollen jetzt alle
  • This low carb quick bite is an easy Keto Snack which is tasty and quick to make. Paleo, and gluten free.
