2010 whaaaat?

Ok folks. I got my list together and here is what is going down for 2010:
  • Pay debt down to 50%
  • Visit home every other month
  • Read 2 spiritual books
  • Attend 2 Buddhist day courses
  • Become certified Spin Instructor (that’s right- I’m throwing this out there!)
  • Clean diet
    • Strive for 5 fruits and veggies a day
    • Rid dairy from diet (dairy makes me feel yucky)
  • Run 5 races
Recreation/Other Personal
  • Host 3 dinner parties
  • Write 3 magazine articles (I write for a local publication)
  • Paint walls in rest of condo
  • Cross 5 items off of Bucket List (see below)
  • Go to Seattle for vacation
  • go on a wine tour
  • Read 2 non spiritual non work books

I also stole these gems from my Women’s Health magazine:
  • Don’t dress like a bum on Sundays (no more pajama pants all day long)

  • Look hot at the gym (no more 10 year old oversized workout pants)

  • Switch up the nightwear from boxers and an old t-shirt (va va voom)

  • Find one “fashion risk” piece of wardrobe (hammer pants?)

  • Look pulled together for work (this one is huge for me)

This is actually a part of a 5 year plan that I wrote out 4 years ago. Obviously changes have been throughout the years but I really like the breakdowns I have for all aspects of my life. (I left “career” out of this one for privacy purposes) I created the 5 year plan at a course for work. Basically you think about your life 5 years from now and how you want it to look- your job, your home, your family, your love life, your health… etc.  Then you backtrack through the 5 years and write out when you hope to achieve or your plan of action in achieving those goals.
