All day I have been thinking of other things I want to accomplish this year. I have seen other people do “40 by 40” lists, including 40 goals they want to accomplish by age 40. Since I only have a year, I am not going to attempt 40 different goals (just 40 lbs). But, there are other things I want to do, so here is the short list…
- lose 40 lbs (you already knew that one)
- save enough money to take a birthday cruise with my girlfriends
- become a Zumba instructor
- do pushups on my toes
- finish a half marathon in under 3 hours
- paint my bathroom
- walk my dog at least 10 min. everyday
Now you may chuckle at number 6, but I have lived in this house for almost 2 years, and I have said I was going to paint the bathroom when I moved in. Why 7? That is just what it came to. I may add more if I think of some….but these are the big ones. My dog needs to lose about 10 lbs, so the last one is for him as well as me. My ultimate goal is to take him for a 30 min run, but I know that is unlikely to happen daily, so we will shoot for the 10 min walk right now.
So, here are my goals. Now that I have them in writing, they are real and not just in my head. That is the first step to making them happen!
