If you all don’t know, I am obsessed with completing “To-Do” lists and I love having goals to smash into the ground with my stubbornness. So, with that said, I am deciding that over the next 5 weeks I will complete the following goals.

Mind::

I love to read and I am trying to collect mystery novels, starting with James Patterson, John Grisham, and Sue Grafton. So far I have 26 out of 82 Patterson, 5 out of 25 Grisham, and 4 out of 20 Grafton novels. Right now I am working on reading the Patterson books and am currently reading the Alex cross series of Patterson (currently half way through Kiss the Girls). I plan to read a book a week, if not more, but deffinately a minimum of 5 books over the next five weeks. I also hope to be enrolled in at least one class this fall at the local community college, in an attempt to finally get my associates degree by the end of next summer semester.

Body::

I have been working really hard to get to the weight I am now but, of course, no one should ever stop improving. With that in mind, I hope to lose five more pounds in the next five weeks. A pound a week should be a reasonable amount to keep a steady rate and so that I can try to keep the weight off. Now that I don’t have a license for a while, I’ve been walking, riding my bike, and taking the bus for transportation so exercise won’t be hard. I’ll be getting back to the old hard working, exercising fool that I was and not be so lazy, sitting around in my spare time, except of course to read or study.

Stomach::

For the next five weeks, I hope to eat as healthy as possible. My idea of eating healthy is tons of fruit and vegetables, low carb, not a lot of meat and no added salts or sugars (meaning no sweets eekk!) Because of this I’m going to try to create five recipes for dinner to have once every week.

Heart::

Time to get creative with date nights! I am attempting to save money, even though I am having more bills now that I am in the middle of paying for the end results of my DWI, school, getting a scooter, and all the other stuff that comes with being on my own. I hope to plan 5 awesome dates with my beautiful girlfriend, and best friend, that wouldn’t totally destroy our wallets haha!

Home::

I try to think of myself as a saver, doer, and an organized/clean individual. Most of the time that isn’t the case but I still try to uphold that for myself, I mean come on I’m only human :-). But, in the spirit of bettering myself I’m hoping to keep my space clean and my bank full. So, I hope that I can save a $100 dollars a week, which will be tough for me for some reason or another. Cleaning the house, well that will not be a scheduled weekly thing but I just hope that I can do a reasonable job of doing my chores.

Other than the next five weeks, I hope that over the next year I can not only get some of the things that I’ve been going through behind me (DWI) but also to be a better person and build a better future that I hope to have.

This will be some story! So here’s to challenges and keeping your head up!

Thanks for reading!
