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.
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
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.
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.
I better stop typing and get busy!
