Every year in December I start thinking about goals and things I want to do in the next year. Not really resolutions because I'm not resolving anything, but every year I have a few things I'd like to do.
Last year my main goal was to lose some weight and I have. Quite a bit actually. I'm down a lot AND I've kept it off. Obviously one of my goals is going to be to lose some more weight and I have a bigger reason to do that instead of just being fit.
Folks... this chick? Is going to do a boudoir shoot. I know. I'm kind of pissing myself thinking about it. And at first I had no idea what it really was but yeah.. then I Google'd that shit and I promptly stopped eating the pizza rolls with a side of cookies. Because yeah. I need to lose weight for that. I don't know any of the final things such as date, pricing, whatever but I know I can't spend more than $200 total. I just can't. But I'm excited anyways to say that I did it.
Preferably before I'm wrinkly and stuff starts moving south. Well, more south.
Anyways. But I have other goals for this year.
And keep in mind- this is my last full year before I turn 30... so my 30/30 list? I need to get cracking on that shit. So here's what is on the menu for 2011:
-Camping in a tent this summer. I'm scared of big animals that can eat me if they want. This is going to be a full weekend thing in northern Wisconsin- probably Brule so I can also get my canoeing off the list the same weekend.
-I also want to go to Vegas. I'm going to plan for August because Matt has his birthday then, I prefer heat, and so yeah. I'd like to go then. AND I can get my helicopter ride AND Grand Canyon visit off of there at the same time.
-Canada...somewhere. I need to travel internationally and this is the most plausible for our budget, which is close to nothing. But I need to do it. I even have my passport paperwork filled out!
-I need to find a cool waterfall in Minnesota/Wisconsin/Michigan to see. Then I can road trip with Matt to see it. Cross two things off at once.
-I need to learn piano. Or something. I just want to learn one song. Eventually I'd like to learn more but one song is all that is required for my list.
-This? Is the year of the 5K. I've been trying to run. Really, I have. I just am not equipped to run very far. I can do maybe 5 minutes max before I feel like I am going to die and my boobs will bounce off of my body. So I am going to say I just have to complete a walk/run 5K. And so my job this winter is to find one near me and sign myself up. And then show up and not embarrass the fuck out of myself.
-Matt is going to take my skiing somewhere around here for a day. He's pretty confident I'm going to suck and embarrass him and I'm just going to proclaim (for the first time ever..) that he's right. I suck at any kind of athletics so I'm going to make a fucking fool out of myself and come back looking like a domestic violence victim on my ass. I just know it. But he's an awesome skier so he said he'll try his best to not let me die or get run over by toddlers on a bunny hill.
OK. So my 2011 is fucking FULL. I am at the slight panic mode thinking I won't be able to fit it all in. I'm going to try really hard because I want to finish everything on my 30/30. It's my main goal.
And here's the fun thing. As I start planning all of these things.... I'm going to post it on my blog. And if you want to... you can join me. But here's where you come in:
- Do you know of a kick ass waterfall in Minnesota, Wisconsin, or Michigan? Let me know and I'll see where I can afford to go.
- What are your tips for traveling CHEAP to Vegas? If you have an in, now is your time to be my bestie.
OK. So now I'm off to the calendar to see when we can get this all in. Yikes.
