Goals Update

May 1, 2009

Just wanted to check in and let you know how I’m doing with my 101 goals. Although I’ve only fully completed one task, I am working in bits and pieces on others. So for the sake of accountability, here’s the update:

#1 – Shop at a farmer’s market: I found out that one meets near my house every Saturday, and I have plans to visit with a friend of mine a week from tomorrow.

#2 – Cook dinner once a week for a month: I’ve actually cooked twice this week! And one was a new recipe! This is a breakthrough for me.

#7 – Do a bike race: I am officially in training for a triathlon, which totally counts. More on this soon.

#8 – Run another 5k: See #7

#9 – Unlock all the exercises on Wii Fit: It’s a slow process, but I’m working on it.

#10 – Do a Wii Fit body test once a week for 12 weeks: 2 weeks down.

#16 – Find the perfect mascara: I tried a new one that is definitely NOT perfect.

#20 – Pay off my credit card bill: I’m chipping away at it each month. This will probably take a couple of years, unfortunately.

#31 – Take the charge nurse class: I’m scheduled for sometime in May.

#33 – Get promoted: My annual evaluation is at the end of May, and I’m working on fulfilling all the requirements that will make me a “clinical colleague” instead of a “clinical apprentice.”

#36 – Watch all of the movies that have won Best Picture: I added them all to my Netflix queue. Only two are unavailable at the moment.

#40 – Read all the books I own but haven’t read: I added them all to my Goodreads “to read” list, and am reading one now (see sidebar).

#55 – Change passport to married name: I mailed my application, it’s out of my hands now.

#60 – Get the house painted: Through a friend, we are getting a major discount on professional painting and they’re coming next Wednesday! They are only doing the two hard rooms though; there will still be painting for us to do ourselves after that.

#73 – Babysit my new nephew: Well, he was born! That’s the first step, right?

#83 – Start using reusable shopping bags: I bought 5 at HEB. Now to use them on a regular basis!

#97 – Buy another leash and walk the dogs simultaneously: Done!

    From Tabaitha Kaye:

    I had no idea that LaCentera has a Farmer’s Market each Saturday. That is so cool. Fresh fruit and veggies, yum!

    From Julienne:

    I also HATED that mascara. I was a firm believer in Lancome mascaras (Hypnose and Defincils) but I just tried an Elizabeth arden Ceramide Lengthening Mascara that seems promising!

    Yay for the deal on house painting! Congratulations!

    I’m also thinking about ordering The Unlikely Disciple that you were reading – what did you think of it?

    This is great, thanks for sharing. (I use good ole Blackest Black Maybeline mascara… it just fits!) Congrats on your nephew and keep up the good work on your goals!
