Remember my list?

So a while back I made a list of 35 things that I wanted to do in 1001 days. Here is my progress....

1. Pay off a minimum of 75% of my credit card debt. (I am very aggressively paying down debt. I think I have increased my debt repayment each month by about 300%)
2. Loose and keep off 25 lbs. (I am doing Weight Watchers again and on my way to this goal, aiming for September,2010)
3. Sell my condo. (This goal is for later in the 1001 days)
4. Move into a 5 bedroom house. (Ditto above)
5. Participate in a marathon, as a walker. (I just did a 5k today! Woo hoo!)
6. Grow my relaxer out and cut off my hair. (My relaxer is all out and my hair is growing back from last years cut. I recently colored it auburn)
7. Visit DC and see all the cool historical sites that I never take the time to see when I go. (Maybe this summer?)
8. Maintain regular visits with my girls. (I think I am seeing everyone pretty regularly considering all of the distractions)
9. Become an ESL teacher. (I am thinking of revising this goal. As much as I want to do this, I don't know if I will be able to be a traditional teacher because I am just NOT a morning person )
10. Go through all my boxes of random stuff and put them in order. (Once one thing is concurred, another pops up. But that's just life!)
11. Wear makeup more often (I am wearing makeup on the weekends more)
12. Learn to be more of morning person (Don't really know if this will happen till I have a baby)
13. Learn a new craft (Still considering knitting)
14. Be more consistent with keeping my house cleaned everyday (Sucking at this)
15. Take a course on wedding planning (I start June 22nd)
16. Start a habit of walking Andy every morning for my and his exercise (poor Andy I still neglect him)
17. Take pictures more often (I do better now)
18. Learn to have a positive attitude even in the face of difficult times (I think I am doing a lot better at this)
19. Be less quick to anger when it comes to my loved ones (Still beat up on D too frequently)
20. Drink at least 4 glasses of water a day (I am drinking more water now)
21. Complete a detox program (Will NOT be doing this. After research I have determined it not to be safe)
22. Reduce the amount of fast food I consume (I am doing better)
23. Find a community service project to get involved in (I'm thinking volunteering with the SPCA)
24. Take a vacation of some sort each year (Going to Las Vegas in September, so excited!)
25. Speak Spanish more often (I speak some each week)
26. Try 10 new recipes (I tried a new one today. WW Potatoes Au Gratin)
27. Journal once a week (I don't think I will traditionally journal each week but blogging counts)
28. Tell my loved ones how much I love them whenever the mood strikes (I try to)
29. Spend more time at my parent's house in the country. It's good for my soul :-) (Just went yesterday. I go 1-2 times a month)
30. Scrapbook (I just started scrapbooking the wedding stuff in the past two weeks)
31. Read a new book each month ( I may not read it from cover to cover, but I check out new books each month and at least skim them for info)
32. Develop a 3 times a week fitness routine (I just got one started. Cardio dance on Tuesday, Personal Trainer on Wednesday and Wii or some other exercise like Yoga another day of the week)
33. Build up my savings to have a cushion in the lean times (Contributing at least $25 a month which is a start)
34. Develop a plan for my own business (I have started to work on my event/wedding coordination business and am revamping my Etsy.com store)
35. Increase my veggie and fruit consumption (Just had three veggies for dinner tonight)
