My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)


Thursday 13: Goals for 2010

I can't believe that Labor Day is less than 2 weeks away. I don't know about you, but once Labor Day gets here, the rest of the year is a giant landslide and is over in the blink of an eye!  That said, here is a small list of things I want to accomplish before this year is complete!
  1. Get to my goal weight (154)!   I'm not too far away, so I need to hunker down and get there!   
  2. Participate in my first 5K.   And maybe my 2nd.   (I just registered for my first, so this will happen for certain! Wahoo!)
  3. Reduce my debt by $500.  Yeah, it doesn't sound like much, but I want to be realistic.  Christmas is coming.  lol
  4. Have a garage sale at my mom's house when the weather cools down a bit.  (this will help with #3!)
  5. Work out 3x a week.  I started back at the gym last week and have been 4 times in the last 7 days... so far, so good! I just have to keep it up!
  6. Read one book per month.  My reading has been slacking.. I've been reading the same book for the last 4 months... lol
  7. Practice doing my own pedicures.  I have the shakiest hands and the last time I did a pedicure, it looked like a 4 year old did it.
  8. Paint one room in our house.   I love color, and our walls are a dull off-white.  I'm ready to make it beautiful!  
  9. Try to score tickets to see Daniel Tosh when he comes here in October.   I love him!  
  10. Reduce my dependence on coffee.  It's like crack, but legal!  Well, I wouldn't know, as I've never done crack... but still! You get the idea.
  11. Make time in my schedule to read/comment on blogs from home since I can't do it from work as much! GRR!!
  12. Develop a love for water...  I don't drink enough!
  13. Get a massage!!!!  Or two...   I need one.. badly!   But I am not allowing myself one until I lose 10 lbs.   Only 7 to go!
There ya have it for this week..... I hope you all have a Happy Thursday.. If you want to participate in Thursday 13, just click the link! :)

I go before I go home.. If I go home, I can find a million excuses to not go back out. :)

Wow Laurie! Great goals! The is an impressive list, but you can do it! One day at a time. And you are so right, the year will be over before we know it. Then we will all be making new years resolutions! Keep up the great work!
