Weekly Update #13

67. Leash-train Jack and Jasper

Jack is FINALLY responding to training! *faints... like a goat* Today he actually walked from the pen and to where I wanted him to go with minimal distractions or stopping. I was so pleased with him!!!

Satisfying Nerdom
87. Send 3 secrets to Post Secret (0/3)

I have a postcard I want to draw upon and submit. Only thing is to get myself to do it and send it in.

Shits & Giggles
91. Read a trashy romance novel all the way through

I've been shopping at Goodwill for a trashy romance novel. Apparently, the 20 or so middle-aged housewives that are always lurking near the books have beat me to them all. O_o

Weekly Update #12

Food and Health
41. Find a workout routine and do it once a week.

I've changed my goal to this because I now have a workout group. I won't be attending this week, but I figure several hours of vigorous house cleaning was a decent substitute.

Personal Upgrades
61. Get a cushy state job

I'm still sending in applications like crazy. Still no go. I do have a job interview today at a bank, so it's something. At least with a teensy bit of cash flow of my own, I can put it towards some of my other goals (i.e. the "Love My Larry" category).

Sorta Counts, Right?

Food and Health
41. Do workout DVD exercises three times a week for two weeks (or play DDR for 30 minutes a day)

Actually, I've started working out with Larry, his Shaolin instructor Greg, their friend Kevin, and Kevin's two teenage neighbors. We work out about two hours once a week doing a revised version of 8 Minute Abs (Larry, Greg, and Kev pretty much have it memorized), a long list of other exercises (sit ups, push ups, stretches, squats, crunches), along with some weight lifting (yay for 5 pound weights!), Shaolin, and--my personal favorite--some tai chi!

So while it isn't quite what I had in mind, it's still a regular work-out schedule. I've been twice, so hopefully we'll keep it up for a little while. If not, I'll find something else to do.

Love My Larry
51. Find an activity we can do together and do it often (craft, game, sport, whatever)

Punching at each other counts, right? ;-D

Weekly Update #11

Between my new niece being born and general family drama, I have gotten absolutely nothing accomplished in the last 8 days. This is getting very, very frustrating.

I'm still leash training Jack and Jasper... does that count?

Weekly Update #10

Confidence Building
8. Be more open about being bisexual (lose this lingering shame I was taught growing up)

I don't want to talk about it.

Do Unto Others
22. Handcraft 2+ items as Christmas gifts each year (1/6)

I'm 90% done with Oaksy's Christmas scarf. At the moment, I worked so hard to get this far, I'm sick of looking at it. It'll be done long before Christmas, though.

17. Complete the 100 Snapshots Challenge (0/100)
18. Complete 26 Things and post in my journal (0/26)

I'm going to see if I can't at least start these tomorrow... or at least one of them.

Food and Health
40. Try a new recipe and/or food every month (3/143)

Today I tried this crazy concoction that was like peanut butter candy with chocolate fudge on top of it... topped with walnuts. It was supposed to be like a Reese Cup cake thing. *shrugs* It was pretty good, but mostly it tasted like the two candies put together than a Reese Cup.

And that's pretty much it. :-/
