May Updates!

  1. Run (not walk) a 5k race.
    05 - Ummm... I admit it. I SUCK! Besides moving the massive pile of bricks from my backyard I did
    04 - HA! Well, I maybe went on a couple walky-jogs. I've yet to sign up to race in anything. Need more training!

    03 - Definitely went walk/jogging more often in March. Oh, and crunches, I've done some crunches!
    02 - I've gone walking a few more times than I did in January. That's progress!
    01 - So, ah, I've gone walking once or twice. That's a start!
  2. Read the Bible in a year.
    05 - Keepin' up! Finished reading through Judges, Job, Ruth, Acts, and Joshua.
    04 - Still goin'! Finished Matthew, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.
    03 - On track! In March I've finished reading though Leviticus, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon.
    02 - I'm doing just dandy with this. I've completely read through Genesis, Exodus, and Hebrews. I'm almost done with Leviticus and Proverbs.
    01 - So far, so good!
  3. Lose 10 pounds.
    05 - Broke even...
    04 - I warn you, I wasn't down. I kinda slipped. See chart below... (Shown is March and April)
    03 -Down 1 pound. Hey, it's a loss! See chart below...
    02 - 5.5 pounds down...from returning cruise weight...
    01 - So what if I told you that I was down 9 pounds by my own scale in just January alone? Yep, it's true. Wanna see my chart? Of course you do!

  4. Post a picture a day...taken on that day... instead of a quote a day.
    05 - Yep. A picture is going up each day. Sometimes there are lags between days due to intermittent internet.
    04 - Still not a picture from that day, but posting pictures from within the time frame of the date. Flowers are in bloom and beautiful, plus they're easy subjects, so I've taken a lot of flower pictures.
    03 - Still not doing the best on the picture being from that day, but whatever, I'm posting a picture a day.
    02 - After the cruise I slacked on taking a picture a day. But I was still posting a picture a day. I'll work on that...
    01 - Ok, so I've slacked a few days. But I get caught up!
  5. Have monthly dinner party, or at least invite some friends over for dinner.
    05 - Boo! I've had my family over. But I did gather friends for my birthday dinner! BJ's...
    04 - Well, I had people over, wait no that was May 1st. Ah! Yes, I had a lunch buffet sandwich building business thing for those giving souls that helped work on my path. (I still need to share my path don't I?)
    03 - Woot woot! Hosted TND on the 5th Tuesday. Total about 15 people came. I made this for dinner. It was good! Making a vow to have people over more often.
    02 - The last couple weeks I've had my family over for dinner on Friday nights. And I've volunteered to have TND at my house the 5th Tuesday of March. I'll let you know how that goes.
    01 - I failed for January. February isn't over yet though...
  6. Down size possessions...aka clutter
    05 - I rearranged my back room. Now when looking in it looks less cluttered. That counts, right?
    04 - Decided that my back room needs to be cleaned out and rearranged, especially the closet. So that is going to be my project for May.
    03 - Sure...? I actually physically removed the bags of stuff to get rid of. So I guess that counts since it was cluttering up my room.
    02 - I rearranged the living/dining room and went though some more of my closet.

    01 - I've gone through my closet and through my pile of purses.
  7. Try new recipes from the cookbooks I have. (see #5, they will be guinea pigs...)
    05 - New recipes tried for Memorial BBQ. One recipe is posted on my recipe site, the others will come shortly.
    04 - Sure I've made stuff. What have I made...? Cake pops, I made cake pops!
    03 - Family = guinea pigs. Poor family...
    02 - Ummmm... I haven't tried anything new. But I've tried new things that my mom has made. Does that count...?
    01 - Boo me! How does cereal sound? Mac & Cheese...?
  8. Exercise a minimum of 3 times a week (walk/jog, Wii Fit, DVD, etc., see #1 which will lead to #3)
    05 - Boo...
    04 - See #1. I really need to start doing something, anything.
    03 - Need to make a REAL commitment to do this on a regular basis. Once the habit is made I'll be in good shape. The time change has really kicked my butt though, I get home and I just want to be lazy.
    02 - Boo! I'm still on the once a week average. Time to kick it into gear!
    01 - I've averaging about once a week of exercising on purpose. But I do activities that include activity.
  9. Daily make time for God.
    05 - Will be a continuous work in progress for the rest of my life.
    04 - Prayer, reading, bible study, church, worship, etc. I do it all, but I'm still lacking. I'm by no means perfect.
    03 - If you count my daily readings as time spent with God then I'm doing well. Although it's not always necessarily quality time though...
    02 - There is always room for improvement here. But I'm human and I'm trying. I pray more regularly and I'm in the Word daily. That's definitely moving in the right direction.

    01 - Doing well. Spending lots of time in prayer. I'm not even kidding.
  10. Travel somewhere new.
    05 - Traveled to ummm, the big town of Lodi. For the Zinfest. I had never been to that part of Lodi before, so it was new, therefore I traveled somewhere new. Go me!
    04 - I went to my favoritest place in California, back to where I went to college, San Luis Obispo. Although it was a quick day trip, it was well worth it. I saw family, I drank wine, I ate at Firestone's and walked around downtown, and went to Pismo. I need to go back again, but next time for a little longer.
    03 - Currently there are no travel plans and I don't like that! I need to plan something asap to make me feel human again!
    02 - Um, did I go anywhere in February? I don't think so. But that's ok!
    01 - Just got back from a cruise to Cabo about a week and a half ago.
