Five Month Update – 30 by 30

Today I’m five months into my 30 by 30. This was a pretty slow month as far as progress goes. I got a few more items started though, so that’s good!

Cooking/Baking:

Health/Fitness:

  • Get to my goal weight
  • Work out on a regular basis – Not quite to the 3x/week that I’d like to be at, but I did join a new gym and have been going sporatically
  • Complete the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer – done!

Boston/Travel:

  • Visit at least 3 new cities (1: San Francisco)
  • Pack a picnic dinner and see a movie on the Esplanade – done!
  • Go to the beach! (can you believe Hubby and I haven’t had a beach day since we moved to Boston 3 years ago) – done!
  • Go to the Cranberry Festival in October – done!
  • Take a spontanious trip with girlfriends

Relationships:

  • Talk to younger siblings (A and L) on a regular basis
  • Plan/host a girls night (in or out)
  • Go visit my little brother’s college dorm room
  • Meet my friend’s babies in the Midwest – started – I got to meet a TON of babies when I was in Indy for Baby Wagner’s baby shower. And Hubby and I are going to meet him during the holiday break!
  • Babysit/Spoil my new nephew as much as I can – started – Hubby and I babysat him for the first time by ourselves in August! He was an angel the entire night and didn’t fuss at all.
  • Send birthday cards to my siblings, parents, and nephew – started – October kicked off the winter birthday season for us. I got cards out to my youngest sister, L, my dad, and my other sister B. Next up, mom’s birthday in Dec.
  • Plan a date-day with Hubby

Other:

  • Take a cooking class – done!
  • Read the photography books my dad got me
  • Finish all the nearly-complete kitchen projects
  • Fully de-clutter our place – started – I did some MAJOR fall cleaning in our bedroom. Took everything out of the closet and my dresser. It felt good to purge some things.
  • Volunteer for something at least four times (1: volunteered to take care of the ongoing can-recycling project at work, 2: volunteered to sell pies for Pie in the Sky)
  • Plan a Boston area food blogger event – started – I have an idea about this and need to get going on some planning…


Boston area readers, don’t forget that I’m selling pies for Pie In the Sky. The cost of your pie will feed someone in need for an entire week! Please consider buying a pie for a good cause.

    I haven’t commented yet but I absolutely love your blog! I’ve downloaded about 10 recipes I intend to try! Well done on your 30 by 30! I also have a 101 things to do in 1001 days – my 1001 days is up in January 2011 and I’ve done only about 20 things …. hmm! So you should be proud of how much of your list you’ve done!!
