May Goal Results

Sunday, June 02, 2013

IN PROGRESS GOALS
1) Maintain my weight at +10 / -14 pounds

Met; back in the middle of the range

2) Maintain my budget and pay off 1 debts (revised)
emoticon
On track

3) Finish my 1st Marathon
emoticon
Squats hurt my knee again mid-month and I can still feel it when I go up/down stairs and when I run. I don’t know if a marathon is going to happen this year.

4) Resume saxophone playing and look for a band to join

Met

7) Improve sleep habits
emoticon emoticon
Met; best month yet at 89%. YTD average of 83%

8) Eliminate the Snooze
emoticon
Met

9) Learn French
emoticon
Still no quantitative measurement but I called the travel agency to change the date on my train ticket, called the vet to make an appointment for Stupid Dog to get his health certificate for the plane and went to the Sous Prefecture to exchange my drivers license – all in French – and was able to accomplish what I intended. And making a phone call is my own special kind of hell in any language so making these calls in French is deserving of a national holiday IMHO!

10) Have fun and stress less; list other monthly mini-accomplishments
emoticon
Mini-accomplishments:
10a – front hedge completely trimmed
10b – did other mending including replacing zippers on a hobo bag I like and my mesh travel bag
10c – have a good start on my container garden, everything except the eggplant has now sprouted
10d – went for 2 bike rides for the first time in forever; need to get the seat fixed on my Trek before I will take any more rides though
10e – finally got curtains for the living room and kitchen

11) Half Fanatic Moons
emoticon
See Goal #3 above. I have not run in a month so the fate of this goal is still TBD

    This is great! Congrats!

I'm particularly a fan of the eliminate the snooze goal met (sooo hard!), and the saxaphone (I haven't played since high school, lol). WTG!

    Very accountable! You are a great role model, setting the bar high and then reflecting on your achievements.

    I feel your pain communicating on the phone. When I was in Brazil, making phone calls in Portuguese was torture for me (probably for the person on the other too) and usually ended with me just going in person to get the job done. Congrats on that success!
