1. Organize the scary closet in the guest room (Matt joked that this will likely take 99% of the time he's gone).
Okay. Not surprisingly, I haven't actually started the Closet of Doom and Despair yet. I plan to start it, um, soon. Really soon. Really. I promise.
2. Join the community orchestra
Well. I haven't done this either, and I am still getting into practicing regularly. This has been tough for me, but I really do want to go through with this.
3. Take a yoga class
Well okay. 3 for 3. I haven't done this either! Okay, this is starting to get depressing. I have, however, done a yoga video a few times .... does that count???
4. Learn how to cook lots of good stuff (and remember how to cook for one again)
Okay. I have done this! I have been cooking and trying new things (see Friday's post) and I have kind of been cooking stuff for one. It's usually pretty simple stuff, and lots of salads, but I am getting by!
5. Hang some photos in the apartment
Okay, I seriously do not remember putting this on the list. I haven't done this ... and I don't really think I need to. So there. :)
6. Visit lots of friends - especially those in Chicago.
I went to Chicago once in February but haven't had the chance to go back. I have also been to Charlotte, NC to see Anna, Mae, Cassie and Charlie, and I've been to Clarksville TN to visit Jenn. This summer, I will fit in some more visits, and then in September I will head back to Chicago for the big half marathon and hang out with Jenn (formerly of Jeans Friday), d.a.r. and MTM! Soooo excited.
Okay. I'm a little surprised that this is all I wrote down ... perhaps I had another post with goals somewhere? Not sure. I thought for sure that losing some weight would be on there. I have lost somewhere around 10-15 pounds since Matt left. I have been running, doing yoga, walking, and doing strength training regularly. I feel good and I keep feeling better, thanks to the running. I have noticed my legs really looking more muscular, and I feel stronger. Good things!
As for the other goals ... well, I'll tackle that closet eventually. Really. I will. Promise. :)
