May 2011 Goals

April 2011 Goals

  1. Lose 3-4 lbs – FAIL! But, I also didn’t gain (again).
  2. Finish my 10K faster than last year’s time. – SUCCESS! I beat last year’s time by 7 seconds. Go me!
  3. Make first steps towards Audubon site certification – SUCCESS! The site plan is taking shape.
  4. Make sausage – SUCCESS! I made chicken, tomato, basil sausage, and it is delicious!
  5. Finish guest room fancifying – FAIL! The guest room is still unfancified…
  6. Upstairs storage solutions  – FAIL! I also haven’t figured out what I’m doing w/ the guest room closet.
  7. Make cheddar & goat feta. – half SUCCESS! I made the feta, although it didn’t turn out quite right; I can no longer find the goat milk I previously used, and there is a definite change in quality (and curding…). I need to get the raw stuff from somewhere again.
  8. Get my awesome new prints framed & hung in the kitchen – FAIL! I have not done this, but I will this month. FOR REAL!
  9. Find graphic designer to help with a secret project – half SUCCESS! I have the design down & a contact, just need to make it happen
  10. Follow the budget to the letter! (number?) – SUCCESS! I was a marvel of fiscal restraint.  🙂

April 30 day challenge

I will take one picture every day & upload it to my Flickr site. These will show up in the sidebar! In addition, I would like to redo January’s challenge – the month of no extraneous spending! Go me!

I did great with the photo thing until I was derailed about 10 days ago with work.  I’ve definitely reached my goal of being more conscious of what’s around me, though!

April Training Goals

  1. Weights/Yoga/Swim/Bike – 16x this month – FAIL! I was doing great w/ this until about 10 days ago, again; that is a recurring theme…I got in 9 yoga/swim/bike (no weights) April 1 – 19, but nothing since then…
  2. Run 50 miles – FAIL! BUT – I did run 26 miles, which is my biggest mileage month since March 2010! Yay!
  3. Two OWS, minimum – FAIL! Again, see April 19 excuse & add ‘crappy, cold, rainy weather’ to that.
  4. Push-ups every week – FAIL! I’d forgotten I’d even put that in here. Oops.
  5. 20 hours of exercise – FAIL! Again, pesky April 19 when I stopped exercising excuse…I did get in 14.3 hours, and since I did not one lick of exercise between April 20 & April 29, I figure I was on track, at least!

  1. Dude, quit making the rest of us look bad! I’m so impressed with the budgeting–are you following a book or a website or some fancy method?
