Thirty Five by 35 ~ Update ~ 6/22/12

My quest to complete 35 tasks
by the time I turn 35 on March 24, 2013.


My last update was on 6/1/12.  Now that I'm back home and getting settled in, hopefully I'll be able to update on a weekly basis.

I am able to cross a few things off the list this week.  So exciting!

Without further ado, here is my Thirty Five by 35 update:

1.  Lose 65 lbs.
Well, sadly, I gained 5 pounds over our 2 week vacation.  I really don't know how seeing as the the walking and sweating I did.  It felt like we walked 500 miles total.  I guess those desserts with lunch and dinner did me in :(

But, I have lost 3 of those gained pounds over the past week!  2 more and I'll be back at my starting point.  I'm going to have to really buckle down on this one.

I have been walking 2 miles in the morning before it gets hot.  So hopefully that combined with good eating habits will put a dent in this goal.

2.  Go to Disney World.
I'll post a pic when I get them loaded.

3.  Establish a once a month date night with the hubby.
I went through my calendar and scheduled a date night once a month!

4.  Only trim my hair when necessary.
So far so good!

5.  Get the house organized.

6.  Plan and go on a Romantic Getaway for our Anniversary 9/17.
I scheduled the dates.  September 21-23.  We still need to decide where we want to go.

7.  Plan and go on a Girls' Getaway with long-time friend(s) from school.

9.  Get Laken to sleep in her own bed.

10.  Plan and hold a Girls' Night In.

11.  Reach 1000 Sales in my Etsy shop.  Currently at 559/1000.

12.  Paint our Kitchen and Dining Room.

13.  Find and purchase a comfortable bike.

14.  Teach Kaylee to ride her bike.

15.  Get into a "Early to Bed/Early to Rise" routine.
Really slacking on this one but I've decided that I HAVE to set my alarm or else I'll sleep in every day.

16.  Walk a 5K.

25.  Find a long-term Pen Pal.

26.  Re-make my Dining Room centerpiece.

27.  Make Apple Dumplings.

28.  Go berry picking.

29.  Bake a turkey.

30.  Make my own candle.

31.  Eat oatmeal at least once a week.
Slacked a bit over vacation but am back on track.

32.  Get routine bloodwork done.

33.  Make a dentist appointment and keep it.

34.  Find a facial moisterizer that doesn't make me oily.
