2013 Goals: May-June check-in

It’s time for the May/June goals check-in!!
  • Goal 1: I am still going to yoga. I really really love it. I need to start practicing the splits afterwards though.
  • Goal 2: I have fallen behind in my L’Alchimista reading. Hopefully this summer will have lots of pool time and lots of time for pool reading!
  • Goal 3: I only sent 2 pieces of mail in May and June. Ooops.
  • Goal 4: I have decided that spin class is not a priority lately so I’m abandoning this goal. For now.
  • Goal 6: I have started my training for the NYC marathon. I’m off to a slow start-I need to figure out how to schedule in all of my training workouts in addition/replacement of the other things I want to do.
  • Goal 8: I read 2 books in May/June! The first one was called Nothing to Envy. Everyone needs to go pick it up immediately. It’s about how people are living in North Korea. It’s SO interesting! I had no idea that things were so crazy over there. The second book I read was a shallow, easy beach read called Silver Girl. It kept me entertained on my long flights to NYC and Portugal. And then once I finished, I left it there for someone else to enjoy! 
  • Goal 9: International vacation 2013 is in the books!! I spent a week in Portugal in June and had such a fabulous time! I can’t wait to start planning my next vacation! 

Just a taste of our vacation-Portugal deserves it's own post

  • Goal 11: Our quilts. We did more cutting but didn’t get to the pinning and sewing for June. We are still on track though to finish them in a couple of months!

  • Goal 12: May was a good tennis month. I went to class a few times and played 3 matches. I played one of the hardest matches I’ve ever played. We played for over 2 hours!! Sadly, I just couldn’t pull through, But I did manage to draw it out to 3 sets-so I feel like I’m getting better. I didn’t play much in June-hopefully there will be some time in July!
  • Goal 13: I failed miserably at writing in my journal. I even hauled the thing to Portugal and didn’t write once! I’m changing this goal to writing something just 4 times a month. The daily thing is just not going to happen. 
  • Goal 14: I managed to make one recipe from the Gourmet Cookbook in May. I made the charred tomatillo guacamole. It was super easy and really yummy. I still have 46 recipes to go but I’m not quite ready to give up on this one quite yet!  

30 by 30!

In addition to free Slurpee day, today is my half birthday!!!! I am 28.5 years old, which means I'm only a year and a half away from 30! Ack!! Following the example of several of my older and wiser friends, I have decided to do a 30 by 30 list!!

Check it out!

How fab is the next year and a half going to be if I do all of those things?!? I don't know if I'll fit it all in, but it will sure be fun to try!
