2011 Goals Update

17 Feb

Since it’s the middle of February, I thought it would be an appropriate time to give a progress report of my goals.  Things are, well, going.

– Get back in shape.
1. Start and complete the Couch to 5K program. (Tomorrow is Week 1, Day 3) – had a little bit of a slow down here, but today is Week 4 Day 3.
2. Run in a 5K race. – haven’t signed up for one yet, but either March or April, watch out!
3. Get back to Crossfit. This is my third week back.  It’s going pretty well.  Somehow I always manage to go on the days when they mix in running or rowing. it kills me to do that and the lifts.  But it’s good for me, right?  I am constantly sore, but it’s that good kind of worn-out-because-you-did-something sore.
4. Mix in weight workouts. Crossfit includes olympic lifts, so that’s filling this spot for now.

– Take time for myself. Read, create, be inspired, relax. This is hard for me to do. Especially when I’m trying to keep the pressure off of Joel so he can concentrate on school. That doesn’t leave a lot of time for me. But to keep myself sane, I have to try.  Haven’t had much time to myself besides when I work out.  But that’s a start, I guess.

– Complete my 365 Days of Clara project. Maybe continue it for a second year. I’m loving it so far, and I can’t wait to put together a book for the whole year. Still going strong.  I think this year I’ll continue on my phone.  Next year, as she’s more mobile and active, I plan on using my pro camera every day to get at least one shot of what she’s doing.  Activities, new skills, and whatnot.  Something a bit more artsy and professional looking… But as far as documenting every day life, I’m doing pretty well with the iPhone.

– Be intentional with friends. Every week (or almost every week) I have lunch with Emily and Elizabeth.  I’m hoping that when things calm down in the next week or so, there will be a crafting/sewing day with Heather and Susan.  I’m working on this.  Slowly but surely.

– Go on dates. January date, check.  February date – check.

– Get the house done.
1. Hang pictures on the walls. In Clara’s room, create more paintings for the walls. Got a few up in Clara’s room.  Hung the India pics in the living room.  Lots more to go.
2. Create a frame/art wall in the entryway. I’m hoping to get this done in the next few weeks
3. Paint our bathroom. Maybe a nice calming shade of grey/slate blue? Gotta pick a color…. dang decisions.
4. Fix up my craft room. This is a work in progress.  But I am making progress.  Most of the boxes are now empty, and my supplies are actually out where I can see them.
5. Get some area rugs. Ugh.  Our living room is really big.  I can’t find anything big enough for the room that I actually like or that is reasonably affordable.  Frustrated with this one.
6. Get bedroom furniture. Done!  And now that we’re used to having a headboard and footboard, I LOVE it!

– Shoot some killer weddings! I had a great New Year’s Day wedding, and now I have 13 on the books for the rest of the year!  Excited!
